For the last 2 weeks or so I have been exchanging thoughts & emails with Tom Cheetham, the Corbin scholar, mainly on the concept of Ta’wil in poetics. Tom has now put a good part of those exchanges up on his “The Legacy of Henry Corbin” site (& a further note by George Quasha on the DiaLogos he and Chuck Stein had with Robert Kelly in the RK VORT issue — part of which Tom has also reproduced).
Today Tom added a few pages from Charles Olson’s Poetry & Truth: The Beloit Lectures, referring to the matter of ta’wil.

Published in the journal Science, it has also given scientists a clearer view of why the sheet is shrinking.”
