nation-state they aimed to create. Darrell Figgis's contribution to the intellectual development of the Sinn Féin project bore the imprimatur of co-operative idealism. Figgis, a regular visitor to Æ's house, spent several stints in prison on account of his political activities. He published nationalist propaganda and enjoyed close access to Sinn Féin leaders, becoming a trusted confidant to Arthur Griffith, the Vice-President of Dáil Eireann. After independence, he played a key role in writing the Irish Free State's first constitution. 19 Figgis

from city to city and from country to country. Eugène Rendu, an inspector from the French education ministry, was of the opinion that the congress should encourage members of the assistance funds and affiliated organisations to learn foreign languages. This was consonant with the planned inquiry into a special form of mutual assistance, namely ‘the acquisition and enhancement of intellectual capital’. Clearly, the self-help theme was part of the civilisation offensive. The questionnaire pertaining to intellectual development was twice as long as all the

Gramsci’s conception of hegemony: if intellectual developments are not just to reinforce existing power structures, ways must be found of communicating those developments to the people, in order that they can make them effective in political emancipation. The synthesis of aesthetics and reason in the name of the radical democratic politics demanded by the SP is consistent with the Idealist philosophical desire to reveal the higher unity in the diversity of the sensuous world and thus to prevent a disintegration of the world into merely instrumentalised particulars.

characters who inhabit them as almost to constitute a character in their own right: examples include the American deep south in Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses, Joyce’s Dublin, and, here, Mistry’s Firozsha Baag.4 The sequence of stories also sometimes traces the psychological and intellectual development of a particular character from childhood to maturity. Finally, time is often depicted as cyclical rather than linear, with repetition and variation of situations allowing for a deepening of perspective on key themes: in Tales from Firozsha Baag, the stories ‘Squatter’, ‘Lend Me

The ideas of balance, liberty, of free and impartial government, and of political virtue, were reclaimed from association with the regicide of 1649, despite repeated attempts by clergymen to rivet them firmly in the public mind. The key intellectual development was the articulation of ‘limited’ and regulated monarchy encapsulated most effectively in Anglia libera and the writings projecting the ‘republican’ monarchy of

intellectual development. 57 Discipline and agency Several historians have underlined the disciplinary or moralising aspects of health exhibitions. Inspired by the Foucauldian notion of ‘biopolitics’, they have argued that these exhibitions were meant to discipline the visitor’s gaze, body or behaviour. When discussing the ‘strategies’ of

to build. However, any hope that food policies might recognise and supplement the work of the IAOS evaporated. Æ's reticence about state interference reflected the influence of anarchist thought upon the poet-economist's intellectual development. In particular, Prince Kropotkin provided a formative influence over the young Æ as he developed ideas about the promotion of mutual aid and the pursuit of co-operative organisation as a moral imperative. Æ's great ambition for the IAOS remained the creation of a co-operative citizenry in Ireland. 70 His frustration with

, Salomone Usiglio and Pellegrino Sanguinetti agreed to submit their books to a new correction as long as they were returned to them afterwards. The Inquisition agreed to these terms.138 After the expurgation in 1637, the offence rarely surfaced in the Inquisitorial courtroom for the next thirty years. Yet these events confirmed a new Inquisitorial awareness of the Jews and their culture. Nor did it stop Jewish intellectual development and writing, which was actually intensified with a consciousness and exposure to the Christian world and its ideas. The trafficking of

rather sought to challenge theories of intellectual development that did not pay enough attention to the role that sense perception played in the formation of cognitive structures. In fact, Hermelin and O’Connor’s work on subnormality had already tried to problematise and expand discussions on what human ‘intelligence’ really was by demonstrating that, if the specific sensory
