Territorios sin discurso y paisajes sin imaginario

“La uniformización y la falta de calidad y originalidad de los tipos de construcciones mayoritarias ha generado en muchos lugares un paisaje insensible y lleno de inautenticidad, en especial en los espacios suburbanos, periféricos, de transición, en los que la sensación de batiburrillo y de desconcierto se vive con más intensidad. Hemos asistido, en definitiva, a la emergencia de territorios sin discurso y de paisajes sin imaginario”.

Joan Nogué

Copy Principle

“Although we permute and combine ideas in the imagination to form complex ideas of things we haven’t experienced, Hume is adamant that our creative powers extend no farther than “the materials afforded us by the senses and experience.” Complex ideas are composed of simple ideas, which are fainter copies of the simple impressions from which they are ultimately derived, to which they correspond and exactly resemble. Hume offers this “general proposition” as his “first principle…in the science of human nature” (T, 7). Usually called the “Copy Principle,” Hume’s distinctive brand of empiricism is often identified with his commitment to it.”

David Hume, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
