    Memoirs of Swedenborg: and other documents2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    First written in Swedish over 200 years ago, Carl Robsahm’s Memoirs of Swedenborg is one of the most compelling eyewitness accounts of Emanuel Swedenborg to be published in any language. Rich in detail, this memoir is now a classic in its own right and a primary resource for all subsequent biographers. This new annotated translation is based on a critical edition of the original Swedish text. Extracts from other contemporary records, in certain respects explanatory and elucidatory, complete the picture.  All texts translated, analytically examined, annotated and introduced by Anders Hallengren.

    Morbi Mentales: Linnaeus’  Classification of  Mental Illness2010In: LINN S’O’S NEWS. Newsletter of the Linnean Society of New South Wales, no 135, p. 2-6Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Parallel to the classification of the vegetal world, Carl Linnaeus developed in pamphlets and seminars a system of medical diagnosis that comprised both somatic and mental illness. The Systema naturæ was complemented by Systema morborum, the system of diseases, which he presented in an unpublished lecture series at Uppsala University. In his nosological system, using symptoms as criteria of classification, he arranged different “species” of diseases in classes, orders, and genera in the same manner as he classified plants. With characteristic methodological zeal and attention to detail, and with a wealth of observations and case studies, Linnaeus studied mental disorders.

    Petrarca i Provence: den stora kärleken och ensamhetens liv2003 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Vers la fin du Moyen Age le poète Italien François Pétrarque (1304-1374) a vécu une grande partie de sa vie à Vaucluse.

    La culture provençale a fortement marqué ses œuvres, avec son dialogue constant entre la Provence et le pays natal du poète - un dialogue concernant les peuples, les paysages et la condition humaine. L’œuvre la plus célèbre de Pétrarque, le Canzoniere, parle de son amour malheureux et de son sentiment d’un vide existentiel: ce sont des poèmes pleins de langueur. Toutes ses expériences ont fait de Pétrarque un des plus grands portraitistes de la solitude humaine et de la vie solitaire.

    Dans sa grande production de prose en latin, il donne les clefs de sa vie et la signification de ses œuvres écrites en italien. Ces textes montrent aussi comment les poèmes ont un rapport intime avec la vie religieuse et politique de son époque, où il prenait une part très active.

    La vie de Pétrarque était dominée par un besoin de révolte contre son père et par son amour pour sa mère. Les deux idéaux de Rome - Roma = Amor - et de Laure/laurier sont les manifesta­tions de cet amour. La fuite désespérée de Pétrarque vers la soli­tude et vers les écrits des anciens était intimement liée à son his­toire d’amour. L’humanisme de Pétrarque, son sentiment de l’Antiquité, était identique à son sentiment de ”l’amour” - cette chose étrange et en même temps très proche, idéal inaccessible et source d’inspiration inépuisable.

    Il y a deux Pétrarque, deux personnes séparées par des cloi­sons étanches: le Pétrarque latin (l’humaniste et le théologien) et le Pétrarque italien (le poète érotique). Formellement et thématique­ment, ses poèmes latins sont profondément encrés dans la civilisation romaine.  Ses œuvres en prose, toutes rédigées en latin, sont enracinées aussi bien dans les traditions antiques que dans les traditions médiévales.

    Ces deux Pétrarque, très divergents mais qui s’éclairent mutuelle­ment, nous permettent de parler d’un dualisme, d’une polarité. Les antipodes Avignon-Rome correspondent dans son imaginaire à l’amour idéal que représente Laure et à la culture idéale que représente l’Antiquité, et ceci par opposition à la dé­chéance morale et ecclésiastique de l’époque contemporaine, symbolisée par Babylone et la putain babylonienne dans la termi­nologie apocalyptique de Pétrarque, c’est-à-dire le contraire de la mythique Laure et de la céleste Jérusalem.

    Le nationalisme à la fois italien et romain jouait un rôle impor­tant dans le mouvement humaniste et renforçait l’ardeur exem­plaire de Pétrarque dans son effort de miser sur l’héritage antique. On peut parler de quatre facteurs essentiels à la pensée de Pétrarque à ce sujet: le fait que Rome était détrôné et que le monde chrétien était dirigé d’Avignon sous l’influence française, que la papauté à Avignon montrait tous les signes de la décadence, que l’Italie était divisée à cause de ses conflits internes, et, enfin, qu’il était lui-même forcé à vivre en exil. Cependant, ce n’était pas seulement pour des raisons patriotiques que Pétrarque est retourné en Italie: il se sentait aussi de plus en plus menacé dans un pays ennemi. Avec la publication de ses confessions Secretum meum, et avec son voyage de pénitence à Rome en 1350, année de jubilé, il a finalement fait ses adieux à la vie sensuelle et définitivement réglé leur compte à ses amours avignonaises.

    Petrarch's vindication of poetic imagination2016In: Fiction and Figuration in High and Late Medieval Literature / [ed] Marianne Pade, Anders Cullhed, Anders Hallengren, Brian Møller Jensen, Roma: Quasar, 2016, p. 107-115Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Petrarch’s notion of truthfulness and veracity of writing is not “realism” in an aesthetic sense, but in a scholastic ontological sense: a belief in higher values approachable by inspired poets. In the interplay and oscillation between fact and fiction, history and fable in his multifaceted works, the idea of representation is lifelikeness, verisimilitude, answering to the field of argumentum in High Medieval rhetoric and poetics of fiction. This applies to his epic poetry and even more so to his lyric poetry in conjunction with the love story of his life, where reality is disguised by figments of poetic imagination, yet bearing an impress of truth.

    För medicinaren Linné var människan det främsta studieobjektet. Lejonparten av hans livsinsats kan sägas vara inom ett forskningsfält som innefattar alla andra: studiet av människans värld. Skapelsens krona examineras med samma upptäckariver och lika minutiöst som jordytans vegetation. Spegeln vänds där mot jaget självt. Systema naturæ kompletteras av Systema morborum, sjukdomarnas system, ett arbete som i sin helhet bara presenterades i föreläsningsserier vid Uppsala universitet. Med sällsam noggrannhet klassificerade Linné olika psykiska sjukdomar.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper demonstrates the essential role played by pagan myth in the medieval and early Renaissance understanding of love. The fact that Christian ideas of love and desire had overshadowed the philosophical conceptions of eros and epithumía by no means dethroned the ancient god with the bow, whose poisonous arrows never lost their sting. In late Roman and medieval love poetry, the conception of love as a toxic syndrome survived and lived on, in love potions, philtres, which helplessly bind the lovers together, as in the great works of the high and late Middle Ages—the legends of Tristan and Iseult or the Roman de la Rose. The Spanish Baroque poet Francisco de Quevedo, in his Canta sola a Lisi, covets a beloved whose force of attraction is described as venenosa, identifying the amada with the sierpe, the Serpent proper, whose power is biblical and equivalent to Satan. In all similar cases, the bewitchment, the spell, the obsession, the folly or the inebriant served the purpose of exculpation and perfect innocence, guiltlessness. So too did the world of dreams, more indulgent than wakefulness, and accordingly dream visions, fantasy and dreamlike moods and atmospheres set their mark on tribulations and temptations as well as on the great poetry of love in pre-modern Christian Europe.

It is an attempt to trace a basic concept of the Emersonian transcendentalist doctrine, its development, its philosophical meaning and practical implications. Emerson’s thought is analyzed genetically in search of the generating paradigm, or the set of axioms from which his aesthetic ideas as well as his political reasoning are derived. Such a basic structure, or point of convergence, is sought in the emergence of Emerson’s idea of universal laws that repeat themselves on all levels of reality.

    A general introduction is given in Part One, where the crisis in Emerson’s life is seen as representing and foreshadowing the deeper existential crisis of modern man.

    In Part 2 we follow the increasingly skeptical theologian’s turn to science, where he tries to secure a safe secular foundation for ethical good and right and to solve the problem of evil.

    Part 3 shows how Emerson’s conception of the laws of nature and ethics is applied in his political philosophy.

    In Part 4, Emerson’s ideas of the arts are seen as corresponding to his views of nature, morality, and individuality.

    Finally, in Part 5, the ancient and classical nature of Concord philosophy is brought into focus.

    The book concludes with a short summary.

    Abstract [en]

    An analytical outline of Swedenborg's doctrine of love with a special focus on the meaning and implications of the concept caritas.

    The most important part of Swedenborg's philosophy has never been termed a doctrine: the 'Doctrine of Love', which according to Swedenborg is the foundation proper of faith and knowledge. Like the 'Commandment of Love' this principle supersedes and overrides all other rules. In effect, it is more important what you do than what you believe, and goodness is more important than faith because the truths of faith are closed to the uncharitable. 'Caritas' or charity is the royal road to wisdom and also has an intrinsic value, since 'facere bonum' or 'doing good' and making other people happy is forever the highest joy of our lives and is its own reward.
