Lucretius the poet, when he beheld the act of Agamemnon, that could endure the sacrificing of his own daughter, exclaimed: Tantum Religio potuit suadere malorum.
Obviously, a society that generated and admired a man like Cecil Rhodes could not but produce, at the "scientific" level, a generation of zealous orderers and gatherers of cultural material from the "savages." If people like [Edward Burnett] Tylor or [James George] Frazer were never moved by real historical "piety" toward the archaic, if they believed they had fulfilled their task by locating this or that primitive institution in their evolutionistic schemas, if they approached "barbarity" like intellectuals who recoil in horror when confronted with ignorance and the deliria of ignorance (tanto potuit religio suadere malorum!), (3) the reason has to be found in the historical climate in which they lived and were formed.
This last line, tantum religio potuit suadere malorum, is Lucretius' most famous.
Ergo possibile est eundem simul eidem suadere et dis suadere, aut non et esse quid et esse idem?
162v: 'Si alicui mortuus sit optimus filius, hoc quidem est grande tristabile, deberet igitur medicus conservator procurare, ne pater sciret mortem eius: et etiam dato quod sciret, debet ipse qui vult se conservare sibi suadere quoniam si minus tristaretur posset cadere in vitium anime et egritudinem corporis.'
Iusta causa autem esse potest, quae iustificationem praebet repudiationis, immo suadere potest repudiationem.
Al llamarla transuasional, asi parezca un termino rebuscado, por una parte, se hace justicia al termino "persuasion" -propio de la retorica- enriqueciendolo, ya que suasion proviene del latin suadere, que quiere decir "dar a entender", "recomendar como bueno", y, por otra parte, con el prefijo "trans" se insiste en que se trata de ir mas alla de lo suasional.
