IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Oration on the Dignity of Man De hominis dignitate is a famous public discourse pronounced in 1486 by Pico della Mirandola an Italian scholar and philosopher of the Renaissance. It has been called the "Manifesto of the Renaissance". Pico who belonged to the family that had long dwelt in the Castle of Mirandola left his share of the ancestral principality to his two brothers to devote himself wholly to study. In his fourteenth year he went to Bologna to study canon law and fit himself for the ecclesiastical career. Repelled by the purely positive science of law he devoted himself to the study of philosophy and theology and spent seven years wandering through the chief universities of Italy and France studying Greek Latin Hebrew Syriac and Arabic. --- --- --- Some of the common rites of passage would include: birth naming puberty marriage and burial. Studies by anthropologists inform us that often rites are formal and can be quite severe. The ritual has to do with recognition of a new role; the process of throwing off the old one and coming out in the new. This is a recognition by both the initiate and the community. Through the initiation process the mind of the initiate is radically cut away from the attitudes attachments and life patterns of the stage being left behind. --- --- --- Initiation is a primary component of Joseph Campbell’s schema of the Hero’s Journey.Commonly the transition from adolescence to adulthood is what comes to mind when the subject of rites of passage is discussed.
HeadlinePhilosophy has taught me to rely on my own convictions rather than on the judgments of others and to concern myself less with whether I am well thought of than whether what I do or say is evil. Pico della Mirandola [1476] Oration on the Dignity of Man
