By George Steiner

El hallazgo ficticio de un pergamino dañado por el fuego en las ruinas de una villa de Herculano invita a George Steiner a interpretar el sentido del texto unique, que algunos atribuyen a Epicarno de Agra. El legado de este supuesto moralista y retórico del siglo II a. C. se confunde con lo que podría ser una síntesis de los intereses intelectuales y vitales del propio Steiner.

Jugando con los angeles conjetura, George Steiner reflexiona sobre l. a. elocuencia del silencio (lo no expresado) en l. a. poesía y l. a. filosofía, las gratificaciones de los angeles amistad, el potencial de los angeles educación y l. a. rareza del talento, l. a. realidad ontológica del mal, los angeles omnipotencia del dinero, los peligros de l. a. religión, l. a. trascendencia de l. a. música y los angeles libertad de elegir l. a. muerte.
