Genealogia di alcune lingue, migrazione per un periodo di circa quattro o sei millenni

généalogie langues

Genealogical tree: Minna Sundberg

The langages of the world are subjected to the most extensive investigations in space and time, through widest forms on the fact that they are evidenced over a period of nearly four to six millennia. Linked to ancient cultures with different levels, they testify to the many richest events that ever existed; several of these langages delivered an abundant high-value literature. They are defined as a family of languages originating from a common language that gradually differenciated. The miracle, while the migration and establishment process remains unknown, is that we can safely designate the peoples belonging to the initial community; this is attributed mainly to, and only to the langage survival.

Il testamento politico di A. Camus 22 gennaio 1958 (Ing. & Fr.)

Speech to the Spanish refugees fleeing Francoism. Political testament of Albert Camus pronounced January 22, 1958.

Extract: And if sometimes I find it hard to work in this intellectual society where we live in, 

where one makes a point of honor of disloyalty

where reflex replaced reflection

where thinking is throwing slogans around

and where evilness tries too often to pass itself as intelligence.

temporarily poor in its elites

a world set out in search for an order, a renaissance. (…)
