Best things to do in Brussels

Among Europe’s big cities , Brussels doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. Yet Belgium’s capital has prime architecture, public parks, and 19 municipalities, each with its own distinct vibe. These include trendy Ixelles, artsy Saint-Gilles, and the city center with its Grand-Place on the main square, surrounded by opulent buildings. Add to that a unique artistic sense, excellent cuisine, and multilingual conversation — French, Dutch, and German are all official languages, and English i...

"The video is made by Moniker in conjunction with Neuhaus, a temporary academy for more-than-human knowledge at Het Nieuwe Instituut." (via Waxy)

Christ is Still Our Hope, Even in Crisis

The recent revelations are stunning and abhorrent regarding former Cardinal McCarrick, the Pennsylvania grand jury investigation, the sworn testimonies of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, and the worldwide parade of shameful news.  These accusations affect me viscerally.  I am angered, outraged, and profoundly sad. I know two things for certain: 1) It is extremely bad, and we are not done yet—many more dominoes will fall; and 2) the Catholic Church is still the body of Jesus Christ, and it will su...

Matthieu Forichon

French illustrator Matthieu Forichon works in vector illustration, an approach that lends itself well to his crisp, elegant portrayals of fashion, travel, food and drink for clients like Louis Vuitton, Nespresso, Lillet, Camus cognacs & Neuhaus chocolates. I find particular appeal in his use of dramatic lighting in interiors and Parisian night scenes. Forichon’ss website is in French, but easily navigated by non-French speakers. You may find it a bit easier, though, to browse through his work i...

What is 'economic man'?

What is 'economic man'? Intellectuals are often vocal critics of capitalism. Most of them lean left politically, so it is easy to identify anti-capitalism with progressivism. It is therefore no coincidence that the modern welfare state has been administered by elites eager to correct supposed market failures on the way to a more egalitarian society. Leftist elites tend to be university professors rather than captains of industry, but elites they remain. H...

Not a Reformation but a Revolution

I write this on the day known to most Americans as Halloween but to some American Protestants as Reformation Day. A year from today will mark the five-hundredth anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting his 95 Theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg. Between now and then we’ll see a ramp up of conferences, meetings, and seminars concerning the anniversary, beginning with the pope’s visit to Sweden. Many people—mostly Protestants, of course, but also not a few Catholics—are talking of “celebr...

Double Music (1941). John Cage & Lou Harrison #watermusic

Nina Sun Eidsheim in the book Sensing Sound: The composers whose work I believe [Juliana] Snapper's most resembles are not those who foreground the sounds of water, but rather those who work with sound in water. Major composers who deal with the acoustic environment offered by water include Cage with Lou Harrison (Double Music, 1941), Max Neuhaus (Whistle Music, 1971), and Michael Redolfi (various works, 1981-present). With Cage and Harrison, Snapper shares the notion of changing the sounds of ...

Faith and fervor: Neuhaus brought religion into the public square

Religion and politics can create a volatile mixture. For the Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, pastor, priest, and cause celebre of conservative political and religious issues, the resulting mix was a life dedicated to faith and lived out with unrelenting fervor in the public square.
