Rudyard Kipling's Los libros de la selva PDF

Al hablar de El libro de l. a. selva de Rudyard Kipling, todos pensamos inmediatamente en Mougli, el niño criado entre lobos que, bajo l. a. tutela del oso Balú, los angeles pantera Baguira y l. a. pitón Ka, llega a ser «el amo» de l. a. selva de Sioni, en los angeles India. Olvidamos con frecuencia que El libro de los angeles selva en realidad son dos: El libro de los angeles selva (1894) y el Segundo libro de l. a. selva (1895); y que no todas sus historias tienen como protagonista a Mougli, ni ocurren siquiera en l. a. India: «La foca blanca» y «Quiquern» están ambientadas en el Ártico; y, en l. a. India, aparte de a Mougli, tenemos a los angeles astuta mangosta Riki-tiki-tavi, a Tuméi −el muchacho al que le es dado presenciar el legendario baile de los elefantes−, al santón Purun, al reportero que conoce los angeles lengua de los animales y es testigo de una reveladora conversación entre las bestias de carga del Ejército de Su Majestad… Cierto es, por otro lado, que el sueño infantil de ser hermano de todos los animales y de verse libre de todas las restricciones humanas está presente en casi todos los cuentos con un poder cautivador.

To that purpose he uses neither singular concepts, such as proper names like Callias or Socrates (cf. APr. ), nor categories. Both absences can be explained with the task of securing knowledge within the individual sciences. Categories are absent because they are indifferent toward the peculiarities of all individual sciences, and so are singular concepts because, according to Aristotle, the particular as such cannot be recognized.
