Depression and the Spiritual in Modern Art: Homage to Miró

Renato D. Alarcon

Published: August 15, 1997

Article Abstract

Two Spanish-speaking intellectual giants had unique views about the relationship between art and science. Octavio Paz tells us that "for good poetry, repetition is degradation; for science, repetition is the regularity that confirms its hypotheses. The exception is the poet’s reward and the scientist’s punishment." On his side, Santiago Ramón y Cajal calls science "the noblest and most humanitarian enterprise’ ¦a lively poem of intense action and tacit heroism."
