2nd theorie – On blindness
I will start my theory with a definition of West: n. from the greek occedere, which means where the sun disappears, darkness. And it is very curious that almost all masters in literature are blind such as Tiresias, the blind master of the Greeks. They, the blind masters, are a representation of the occident, of the West. They have their eyes shut to the outside so they can have some new and personal ideias. In conclusion, blindness may be a way to the aufklarung (enlightenment).
