• A recurring nightmare

    Carlo Calleja

    On the dissociation of object, act, word and meaning I am tormented by a recurring nightmare. I have this nagging fear that one day all words, all signs, symbols and actions would lose their meaning and significance. Words would cease to impart meaning and each person would be free to ...

  • Towards a more balanced approach to hunting

    Christian Colombo

    Hunting is becoming an ever increasing point of polarisation. Someone who can honestly understand both sides of the argument is hard to come by – anyone with an informed opinion is usually either totally in favour or staunchly against it.

  • Disclosing Truth

    Martin Bruno

    The Greeks were fascinated by the truth, but their truth is understandably a system that embraces man’s search for himself and his (her) place in the cosmic order.

  • Becoming less tolerant to violence

    Christian Colombo

    To some extent we are all violent. We are able to pass by homeless people untouched, we are able to read shocking news about the death of hundreds of people without feeling a tinge, we are able to deprive minorities of their rights, and so on. Should these realities simply ...

  • Finding your piece of Heaven on Earth

    Dr Mark Said

    Peace of mind is that strange feeling that people chase after, yearn for and yet somehow never seem to find. There are always distractions which get in the way of actually attaining it, though even in a busy world, peace of mind is possible and even plausible. When your peace ...

  • What the lives of monks and mothers have in common

    Mariella Catania

    With reference to Mrs. Muscat’s speech on woman’s day, parts of which were shown on a YouTube video clip, I would like to discuss the issue of ‘guilt’, that a stay-at-home-mum may feel, from a different perspective. It is interesting to note that the experience of a newly conceived life ...
