From the series Discovering Infinity
When Saturn is devouring one of his sons
In the Saturn legend the mythological god devours his sons out of fear of a prophesy that one will overthrow him.. The Spanish painter Francisco Goya pained the scene in the background of similar tragedies in his world unleashed by Napoleon and the bestial Spanish Inquisition. What he saw continues to be the tragedy of our modern world. The research book presented here explores our tragedies under imperial policies that echo Goya's painting, imposed by a dying system aiming to maintain empires that have no right to exist and exist only at a huge cost in human lives that society is sacrificed to bear. The research book probes a variety of modern issues of the is type that are rarely seen in the context with Saturn's savagery, but are striking representatives of it, metaphorically.
