Science As PyschotherapyUnlike his introduction of Nicolaus Copernicus in his first volume of his Revolutions trilogy John Banville gives a very clear key to his interpretation of Johannes Kepler s life in the second disorder had been the condition of his life from the beginning Not only does he set off a much distinctive character for Kepler than for Copernicus but Banville also pursues the interaction of that character with the intellectual and social context of the time in a much interesting wayKepler s neurotic condition a longing for assurance about the ultimate rationality of the world is described by Banville in all its stages the initial trauma created by a chaotic midden of an early family life subseuently confirmed through a young Lutheran adulthood in an increasingly oppressive Catholic country and routinised in the shambolic Benatky castle circus of Tycho Brahe It Is hardly surprising that the need for an underlying order in the universe would be a response upon which Banville could build a narrative Science or generally thought itself as psychotherapy And this psychotherapeutic narrative never overdone but muted and hinted at continuously does provide a convincing coherence to Kepler s life His passion for astronomy is a sort of self medication in Banville s story Kepler s work is a reflection and projection of his deepest fears of meaninglessness and purposelessness His but this will interrupt my work attitude to politics religion and family relations is a persistent part of his character until late in life Even the death of his second child is primarily an inconvenience rather than a tragedy A complete indifference to the suffering of his wife is a clear symptom of neurosis not diligence It only gets to be called genius in history not because of what it produced but because of where it leads Neurotic doesn t imply destructive However when the therapy carried on as a slavish routine becomes a solution an end in itself it doesn t lead anywhere but to the hell it is trying to avoidIs this purely a personal story therefore Well not really It is likely that we all get trapped by neurosis of some sort given that every child develops at best a partial and at worst a distorted take on reality which is then imported into adult life If the result is success by prevailing standards this largely unconscious condition is called a life passion or driving force If the results are by conventional norms unsuccessful these same conditions are obsessions or addictions Doesn t a career as a scientist and not only a scientist begin with a presumption of an underlying order awaiting discovery And what would provoke anyone to presume such order and then to embark on a hopeful life of such discovery if not an absence of order of one sort or another in one s formative years And there always is an absence of one sort or another In Kepler s case the therapy was intellectual in others it might be political in my case it was in the first instance monastic and then military Only late in life did I recognise my own drive to exist in by creating it an orderly world as a consistent theme of my life I too like Kepler ultimately chose an intellectual therapy corporate finance a discipline just about as solidly based in reason as astrology Not because I was particularly gifted in either business deal making or mathematics but because also like Kepler I had found a way to survive economically while pursuing the itch for order in an apparently chaotic world And I too mistook the therapy for a destination Your garden variety ends means confusion Banville has Kepler recognise his error in a letter of 1611 to his step daughter I don t know if the letter is authentic The recognition is traumatic Recovery is excruciatingly slow I m still recoveringSo thank you John Banville for providing a bit of life affirmation for me And thank you as well for the typically Banvillian additions to my vocabulary like caparisoned utrauist widow s weeds pavonian and scolopendrine I love it when the spellchecker gets snookered Now old pal how about an historical biography of Freud and how psychoanalysis went off the rails ماجرای

SUMMARY ó PLUSPRODUCTIONS.CO ↠ John Banville John Banville ↠ 1 READ FREE READ Kepler By John Banville Work of historical fiction that is rooted in poverty sualor and the tyrannical power of emperor. John Banville is one of my favorite writers a leaning reinforced by his historical novel Kepler about the 17th century mathematician astronomer Johannes Kepler Math and astronomy are not among my usual haunts but Banville writes so well and so precisely he can infuse anything with interest Part of the strength of his writing is his talent for choosing the right word It doesn t have to be a big 10 word it might just be two somewhat usual words put together unexpectedly Looking now afresh at the form of this little book I am struck by the thought that perhaps without realising it I had some intimation of the troubles to come for certainly it is a strange work uncommonly severe and muted wintry in tone His writing sometimes reminds me of the poetry of Lucie Brock Broido who embroiders amazing sentences and syntaxes as in the poem Death as a German Expert from which I include here an excerpt just for interest Always the dead will be lined as sadAnd crookedly as fingerling potatoes in root cellars dank enoughFor overwintering In Luckenwalde a young girl slides a needleIn the turnip purple soft fold of her inner arm and this tooTransfigures a kind of joyKepler the novel is above all a book about intellectual striving Kepler believed man was made in God s image and thus should be able to understand the universe God created and he tries so hard it puts all of us to shame It is amazing that anyone could figure out the laws of planetary motion just by observing the sky through a telescope especially someone like Kepler who spends adulthood hounded by religious persecution and besides that seems to be feeling ill most of the time Poor guy I liked him but not too much There are other interesting if somewhat flat characters like Kepler s potion mixing mother his dimwit brother a dwarf a Jewish lens maker astronomers emperors and of course the female interests Barbara Regina and Susanna
