Charles Taylor,

“… the object sets up
a kind of frame or space or field
within which there can be epiphany.”

Enveloping-Algebra Note, 1983

Enveloping algebras also appeared later in the work on "crystal bases
of Masaki Kashiwara.  It seems highly unlikely that his  work on enveloping
algebras, or indeed any part of his work on crystal bases, has any relation 
to my own earlier notes.

Kashiwara was honored with a Kyoto prize in 2018:

Prize Dance

“I would not know what the spirit
of a philosopher might wish more
 to be than a good dancer.
For the dance is his ideal,
also his art, and finally also his
only piety, his ‘service of God.'”

Nietzsche

Charles Taylor, winner
of this year’s Kyoto Prize
in arts and philosophy:

“… the object sets up
 a kind of frame or space or field

Willard Van Orman Quine, picture from cover of his autobiography

From A Logical Point of View,  Harvard U. Press, 1980, p. 72
From A Logical Point of View,  Harvard U. Press, 1980, p. 73
Other approaches to the
eight-ray star figure

Figure by Quine for an argument against univesals in 'From a Logical Point of View'

have been sketched in
various Log24 entries.

See, for instance, the
June 21 entries on
the Kyoto Prize for
arts and philosophy.
Quine won this prize
 in 1996.

Quine’s figure, cited in an
argument against universals,
is also a classic symbol for
the morning or evening star.

This year’s winner http://www.log24.com/images/asterisk8.gif
of the Kyoto Prize has
a more poetic approach
to philosophy:

“… the object sets up
 a kind of frame or space or field
   within which there can be epiphany.”

For one such frame or space,
a Mexican cantina, see
Shining Forth.

The Kyoto Prize

for lifetime achievement
in arts and philosophy
this year goes to
Charles Taylor,

Charles Margrave Taylor, professor emeritus of philosophy at McGill University

Montreal philosophy professor.

“The Kyoto Prize has been given in three domains since 1984:
advanced technology, basic sciences, and the arts and philosophy.
It is administered by the Inamori Foundation, whose president,
Kazuo Inamori, is founder and chairman emeritus of Kyocera and
KDDI Corporation, two Japanese telecommunications giants.”

 

Kyocera Logo

“The Kyocera brand symbol is composed of a corporate mark
and our corporate logotype. The mark represents the initial
‘K’ (for Kyocera) encircling a ‘C’ (for ceramics). It was
introduced in October 1982 when the company name was
changed from ‘Kyoto Ceramic’ to ‘Kyocera.'”
