Zitate Theodore Roszak

„Die Information hat in den letzten vierzig Jahren im allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch die erstaunliche Wandlung vom Aschenputtel zur Prinzessin erfahren.“

— Theodore Roszak
Der Verlust des Denkens. Über die Mythen des Computer-Zeitalters. München, 1986. Übersetzer: Christa Broermann. ISBN 3-426-03915-X

„Until we have freed our minds and emotions of the hidden presuppositions that stand between us and the world, we can never be certain we are in touch with reality.“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: Here, at the birth of modern science, is a fundamental insight. Our knowledge of nature Out There begins with knowledge of ourselves In Here. Until we have freed our minds and emotions of the hidden presuppositions that stand between us and the world, we can never be certain we are in touch with reality. Afterword: The Idols of the Bedchamber

„Women enter the sciences, but "womanliness"—those qualities that have always been stereotypically attributed to females—is not yet entirely welcome“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: Women enter the sciences, but "womanliness"—those qualities that have always been stereotypically attributed to females—is not yet entirely welcome, whether it comes into the laboratory wearing pants or a skirt. Ch.11 Only Connect

„Without apoptosis, life would not be possible“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: Without apoptosis, life would not be possible.... when cells lose their ability to die, they run rampant, assuming that life-threatening form we call cancer.... The process of apoptosis by which life and development are governed is profoundly communal.... Cells... need to be "encouraged" to live. Ch.9 Deep Community

„It tells us the world is... deserving of reverence.“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: Our goal should not be to borrow from elsewhere, but to search among our own cultural resources, perhaps even in modern science and industrialism, for ways to restore art to the status it has always held in traditional societies as a form of knowledge.... art adds to what we learn from any combination of physics, biology, geology, and chemistry. It tells us the world is... deserving of reverence. with Betty Roszak, "Deep Form in Art and Nature" Alexandria 4, Vol.4 The Order of Beauty and Nature (1997) ed. David Fideler

„That is what Castle's work needed: a beginner's eye“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: That is what Castle's work needed: a beginner's eye—my eye, before it became too schooled and guarded, while it was still in touch with the vulgar foundations of the art, still vulnerably naive enough to receive that faint and flickering revelation of the dark god whose scriptures are the secret history of the movies. Flicker (1991)

„The process of apoptosis by which life and development are governed is profoundly communal. ...Cells ...need to be "encouraged" to live.“

The process of apoptosis by which life and development are governed is profoundly communal.... Cells... need to be "encouraged" to live. Ch.9 Deep Community

„In four centuries of taking wealth and comfort from the body of the Earth, modern science has not troubled to produce a single rite or ritual, not even a minor prayer, that asks pardon or gives thanks.“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: In four centuries of taking wealth and comfort from the body of the Earth, modern science has not troubled to produce a single rite or ritual, not even a minor prayer, that asks pardon or gives thanks. But then what sense would it make to ask anything of a dead body? Ch.7 The Rape of Nature

„Or perhaps... there is actually an infinity of universes“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: Or perhaps... there is actually an infinity of universes among which only this one has by sheer accident produced the conditions for life and mind. It now requires such artful speculation to maintain an orthodox faith in chance. Skeptics, it would seem, are willing to believe anything. Ch.9 Deep Community

„The final stage of life... offers us the opportunity to detach from competitive, high-consumption priorities... At that point, life itself—the opportunity it offers for growth, for intellectual adventure, for the simple joys of love and companionship, for working out our salvation—comes to be seen as our highest value. ...That is what I have always assumed it means to be countercultural.“

„If we could assume the view of nonhuman nature, what passes for sane behavior in our social affairs might seem madness.“

— Theodore Roszak
Context: If we could assume the view of nonhuman nature, what passes for sane behavior in our social affairs might seem madness. But as the prevailing reality principle would have it, nothing could be greater madness than to believe that beast and plant, mountain and river have a "point of view." …minds exist, so we believe, nowhere but in human heads.
