LE MÉDECIN MALGRÉ LUI

“The  day when Aristotle decided (malgré lui) that the reign of the magician-shaman was over (Empedocles), was the soul’s D-Day.  The paths of the mind had become overgrown.  From that moment the hunt for the measurable certainties was on.  Death became a constant, the ego was born.  Monsieur came down to preside over the human condition.”

Lawrence Durrell, Quinx or The Ripper’s Tale (The Avignon Quintet #5)
