subjective states, of formulating inexpressible feelings, and of integrating unarticulated experiences into a system" (Levi-Strauss 1963: 172).
Mracek's age and natural talent, as well as the objectivising
Czech tradition, have prevented him from turning the masterpiece into an impassioned or, vice versa, superficial, potpourri.
It requires the publication of a scientific opinion objectivising
the state of the stock in question - in this case, mackerel - prior to any effective sanction.
