(section 54) Although this seems to affirm the need for moral ideas as content, the argument and context are more complicated. In this context Kant...

...the narrative voice of the novel and its dramatization of the changes in language as characters move from country ( see rural society: 4 ) to town to city ( see Aberdeen: 2 ), Grassic Gibbon's trilogy ( Sunset Song , 1932 ; Cloud Howe , 1933 ; Grey Granite , 1934 ) dispelled the notion that Scottish novels could not engage with the modern world and that they always had to be split between the dialect speech of the characters and the Standard English voice of the narrator.

Although sex education in Japan is not sufficient in its current state, this education aimed at...

...in style. The ample figures of the earlier group, weighted down by rigid draperies, have been compared with those of the Last Judgement on the west portal of Ste Foy, Conques ( see Conques, ste foy , 1) . In the later group of capitals the weighty quality is partly dispelled by the lively treatment of the drapery folds, perhaps suggesting Burgundian influence. The execution of facial features peculiar to the Auvergne—staring, open eyes, dazed and immobile under stereotyped hairstyles—is virtually identical in both groups. The figures and the many...

...but fine restorations during the late 20th and 21st centuries of organs by Trost and other builders contemporary with Bach, along with the increased accessibility of Thuringia and Saxony since 1989, has helped considerably in the understanding of these matters and in the dispelling of many Orgelbewegung misconceptions. The Arnstadt organ ( Table 23 ) can be taken as typical, one known by the Pachelbel school as well as Bach’s family.
