“We can readily see the function of nature, how it reconciles discordant things in such a fashion that it reduces all the differences to unity and combines them into one body and one substance: and also it combines them in plants and in seeds, and by the joining of male and female engenders beings according to the natural course.' —Fioretto della Bibbia
Carlo Ginzburg, The Cheese and the Worms: The Cosmos of a Sixteenth-Century Miller

“As with language, culture offers to the individual a horizon of latent possibilities—a flexible and invisible cage in which he can exercise his own conditional liberty.”
Carlo Ginzburg, The Cheese and the Worms: The Cosmos of a Seventeenth-Century Miller
