Hoewel hij een van de grootste dromers is die Duitsland ooit heeft voortgebraqcht, schreef Rilke maar weinig liefdesgedichten; in zijn Brieven aan een jonge dichter beweert hij dat niets zo moeilijk is als het schrijven van geslaagde liefdespoëzie.
En toch: die paar liefdesgedichten die hij schreef gaan door voor de ontroerendste uit zijn werk.

The brain sciences are influencing our understanding of human behavior as never before, from neuropsychiatry and neuroeconomics to neurotheology and neuroaesthetics. Many now believe that the brain is what makes us human, and it seems that neuroscientists are poised to become the new experts in the management of human conduct. Neuro describes the key developments--theoretical, technological, economic, and biopolitical--that have enabled the neurosciences to gain such traction outside the laboratory. It explores the ways neurobiological conceptions of personhood are influencing everything from child rearing to criminal justice, and are transforming the ways we "know ourselves" as human beings. In this emerging neuro-ontology, we are not "determined" by our neurobiology: on the contrary, it appears that we can and should seek to improve ourselves by understanding and acting on our brains. Neuro examines the implications of this emerging trend, weighing the promises against the perils, and evaluating some widely held concerns about a neurobiological "colonization" of the social and human sciences. Despite identifying many exaggerated claims and premature promises, Neuro argues that the openness provided by the new styles of thought taking shape in neuroscience, with its contemporary conceptions of the neuromolecular, plastic, and social brain, could make possible a new and productive engagement between the social and brain sciences.

"Usted está a punto de leer (por primera vez, de nuevo) El cuervo que sabía. Puede que le guste, puede que no (ah, esa agradable impredictibilidad de las preferencias). En cualquier caso usted estará leyendo una historieta importante en el conjunto de la obra de Kráneo, parte de un proyeco mucho más amplios cuyos fragmentos, como en la serie poliforma de Shuiten y Peeters, van a apareciendo en diferentes soportes y contextos, proponiendo ua especie de juego al lector aficionado, que suma entonces el gusto del descubrimiento al de la lectura en sí. Y estará leyendo además a un autor que, me atrevo a especular (no sólo por alarde de adecuación al género del relato que prológo, sino también por convicción), se irá haciendo cada vez más presente en el terreno de la historieta nacional."
