Meseck: Hymnen an die Nacht I (inspirado por los himnos a la noche de Novalis)

—-

Claro, Novalis es sobre todo conocido como un poeta inmenso del romanticismo. Pero sus frases escritas hace dos siglos sobre miles de temas en el Borrador general para una enciclopedia tienen resonancias futuras absolutamente devastadoras. Leyendo a Novalis realmente parece que alguien del siglo 21 se hubiera colado allá y hubiera conversado con él.

Un ejemplo:

645 – Mathematics and Grammar: The difference in the Leibnizian and Newtonian manner of conceiving the infinitesimal calculus rests on the same foundation as the difference between the atomistic theory and the vibration or etheric theory. The fluxion and the differential are opposite conceptions of the mathematical element – together they constitute the mathematical substance. They are based on the proposition x. × y. = +. This plus is the differential or the fluxion of the function of x and y. The proportional division of this plus is the main difficulty for this calculus.

Leibniz also terms the infinitesimal calculus: analysis indivisibilium.
(Constant quantities – constant transitive quantities.)

Infinitesimal calculus really means calculation, division or measurement
of the nondivisible – noncomparable – immeasurable. Analysis indivisibilium = analysis of an individuum – individual calculus – genuinely physical calculus.
