Fernando Orlandi. Ricordo come avessi appena chiuso il cellulare la successiva Cura di Urals di alcolismo a Elena, compagna di affetti e di un grande sodalizio intellettuale.
Una morte improvvisa ci coglie impreparati, ci lascia inebettiti, storditi. Poco alla volta si coglie il vuoto lasciato da quella persona e poi ci rimangono i ricordi. Di Victor Zaslavsky abbiamo due lasciti, quello scientifico e la memoria della persona conosciuta e frequentata, di cui questo libro vuole testimoniare. Victor era un uomo affascinante, figlio di un Novecento terribile. Era ironico e affettuoso nei rapporti personali ma anche capace di aspre discussioni quando riteneva di trovarsi a confronto con una posizione errata.
Amava la vita, la famiglia, il figlio e Cura di Urals di alcolismo i nipotini. Sul piano scientifico Victor ci lascia una grande eredità. Non solo i molti testi, ma il Cura di Urals di alcolismo rigore e una lezione di metodo: la ricerca della verità deve essere perseguita con passione, a partire dai fatti, dai documenti, non dalle astratte costruzioni ideologiche. A Victor siamo particolarmente debitori. In seguito il nostro rapporto con Victor è stato costante. Ma questo non è che un elenco parziale.
Soprattutto il debito più grande che abbiamo nei suoi confronti si trova negli infiniti stimoli, suggerimenti, che incessantemente forniva. Nella voglia di coinvolgerci in altre imprese, nella sua curiosità e nel suo amore per i fatti. Victor mi ha, ci ha insegnato molte cose, molto ha dato alle nostre attività. Questo libro vuole essere un piccolo modo per ricordarlo. Perché davvero molto ci ha dato. And in Newfoundland, as elsewhere, it is incumbent upon the speaker to remember that someone no longer alive can no longer respond to anything said about them.
And there is an etiquette, an ethics even, to last words. So I now take up an utterly unfamiliar stance in relation to my old friend. Because our relation was ever sparring — sometimes playful, sometimes serious.
Victor poked, prodded, pulled my pigtails. Even though I had ceased to wear pigtails decades before we met, he pulled them. And I, happy to be called into play, tried to give as good as I got. With Victor voices could be raised in loud disagreement without friendship being risked.
Victor came into my life out of another world — and was himself a window on to a world I had never tried to imagine before meeting him. When he first moved to St. His fear was shocking to me. What kind of country, I asked myself, could produce a man so visibly afraid of a mere uniformed traffic cop?
But did such fear which disappeared over time signal an unwillingness to make demands upon the world? Once, Victor who was chronically late was in clear danger of missing an airplane flight. In all seriousness he tried to insist that I telephone the airport to ask that the plane wait for him.
What kind of country, I asked myself, could produce a man who believed I could tell an airplane, scheduled for take-off, to wait for him?
Victor was an escape artist. He used to urge me to do the same — to write and publish my own way into a larger world than the one he saw I inhabited. I was left with the feeling Cura di Urals di alcolismo he was disappointed in my failure to do so — to buy an apartment in Paris, to a life in Europe or in Berkeley.
Yet I was grateful for the recognition signalled by his urging. He regarded me through a lens of possibility. Saw accurately and empathically where I was, and envisioned me where I was not. And how did I see him? Frowning, abstracted, chewing up a pencil; gleefully chuckling at some absurd human folly; anxious about time as if it were a precious liquid he was forced to carry in a pail full of holes.
And over the years I watched him loving the people he loved. Doting over his young son. Scolding, criticizing the boy in a transparent effort to camouflage his pride.
Grandchildren: the apples of his eyes. His hopes, worries, and plans for them were all infused with the value he placed upon culture, as he understood it, and with his assumption that culture was bequeathed by families. Otherwise, nothing to report. We are getting older. Judith Adler, St. È grazie soprattutto a lui che alcune delle più consolidate leggende caratterizzanti la vicenda politica italiana sono state demolite o comunque ridimensionate.
Zaslavsky ha saputo supplire a questa lacuna e fare giustizia con le sue ricerche di molti luoghi comuni, stereotipi, dimenticanze e vere Cura di Urals di alcolismo proprie falsità storiche sul e del partito comunista italiano.
È per questo motivo che la sua scomparsa lascia un vuoto preoccupante che rischia di essere incolmabile non solo ovviamente sul piano umano, ma anche su quello scientifico e Cura di Urals di alcolismo ricerca.
He walked fast. He rushed from the office to home to resume writing. Academic articles flew off his computer with astonishing rapidity. Why was he in such a hurry? Because in the finite years that are Cura di Urals di alcolismo life, Cura di Urals di alcolismo had an abundance of things he wanted to say.
More than that, he was driven to say them. I first met Victor in August when I arrived in St. At that time, he was teaching at the Memorial University of Newfoundland; I was his new colleague, younger by sixteen years. Now separated by continents, we kept in touch by email and phone, somewhat erratically.
I saw him last, alive, in the summer of Unlike some of the other contributors to this volume, I was not a close friend of Victor. Friends are close when they share intimacies; or, rather, when the sharing of intimacies is genuinely reciprocal.
That was not our relationship. I received them second hand from other friends. And in friendship, age often plays an important role. The younger man is more likely to treat the older as a confidant; more likely, also, to be willingly vulnerable because, being younger, expectations of his Cura di Urals di alcolismo and wisdom are less exacting.
The older man, even without meaning to do so, plays along. He typically has a degree of reserve towards a younger friend that he does not possess towards friends of his own cohort.
That is not explained by the simple fact that the younger friend has been a friend for a shorter time than older ones. The issue is not longevity as such but the emotional asymmetry it produces. To share frequent intimacies with a younger friend, a friend whom you nurtured and encouraged, whose career you sought to advance, would introduce a strange equality into the relationship, a rapport that was originally absent.
Reserve in friendship is the fence we erect so that we will not embarrass or disappoint the people we value. We shared prejudices more than intimacies. We admired George W. We supported the invasion of Iraq. We thought that battling Islamism was more like a war Cura di Urals di alcolismo terror than it was a policing action. Among our Newfoundland friends, such postures were idiotic. But the test of friendship is whether it can survive idiocy. It did.
What kind of man was Victor? He was a loyal friend. He was cultured. He possessed a wry sense of humor. He was a brilliant scholar. Yes, of Cura di Urals di alcolismo. But what was he like closer to the bone?
A man who valued freedom, Victor seemed rarely to have experienced it. He was anxious, especially about authority and its ability to peer into a life and control it. He was superstitious. An intellectual to his core, he lived a great deal in his head and the head is its least free when it is most active.
