Rousseau (Folio Biographies) (French Edition) by Raymond Trousson

By Raymond Trousson

'Je ne veux pas argumenter avec vous, ni même tenter de vous convaincre ; il me suffit de vous exposer ce que je pense dans l. a. simplicité de mon cœur […]. Souvenez-vous toujours que je n’enseigne element mon sentiment, je l’expose.'

Célèbre à 38 ans, Rousseau (1712-1776) fut pour ses contemporains tantôt le paradoxal sophiste des Discours, tantôt le maître des âmes sensibles révélé par los angeles Nouvelle Héloïse, tantôt le législateur intransigeant du Contrat social. Déifié par une Révolution anxieuse de se découvrir un père spirituel, le plus souvent honni par un XIXe siècle qui le dénonce, ici comme un anarchiste, là comme un prophète du totalitarisme, il est présent à tous les moments de crise où se cherche l’Occident. Créateur, avec Les Confessions, de l’autobiographie moderne, il est, disait François Mauriac, 'l’un de nous', toujours agissant et vivant. Au-delà de l’œuvre, capitale, l’homme, séduisant, rebutant, contradictoire et complexe, n’a cessé de susciter les prises de place les plus passionnées.

Reincantare il mondo. Il valore spirito contro il populismo by Bernard Stiegler

By Bernard Stiegler

Reincantare il mondo incrocia coraggiosamente teorie assorted, come il processo di individuazione di Simondon, l. a. psicanalisi freudiana, certi aspetti della fenomenologia di Husserl, l. a. grammatologia di Derrida e le riflessioni foucaultiane sugli hypomnémata, al fantastic di promuovere il valore spirito e contrastare il populismo industriale – ossia los angeles dissociazione e los angeles captazione dell'attenzione divenute sistema. Grazie a queste coordinate, Stiegler disegna una filosofia e un pensiero che devono ritornare advert essere forti, in un certo senso più del “pensiero forte”. according to l'autore di questo libro, infatti, il reincanto del mondo è los angeles costruzione di un'alternativa all'esito più nefasto del disincanto del mondo descritto da Max Weber. Se il disincanto del mondo è l'espressione del predominio delle logiche di efficienza e produttività, e si poggia sulla convinzione che tutti i fenomeni possano essere dominati dalla ragione, abbandonando perciò ogni riferimento a elementi magici, metafisici o religiosi, consistent with Stiegler story disincanto si è rivelato sempre più nocivo a misura della costante e pressoché illimitata ipertrofia delle nuove tecnologie, veicolata da un capitalismo ormai palesemente tossico. Di fronte a ciò, piuttosto che opporsi al divenire tecnologico, si rende necessario «un nuovo progetto industriale che bisogna inventare e che miri a intensificare los angeles singolarità in quanto incalcolabile, socializzando dei dati che non possano essere ridotti a oggetti di un mero calcolo economico. Si tratta di inventare l'industria del calcolo che impedisca di calcolare (sul)le esistenze – ma inventarla con gli strumenti digitali. Si tratta, in effetti, di reincantare il mondo, ossia di edificare i modi di sussistenza e di esistenza che sostengono l'altro piano, il piano delle consistenze, che è quello del canto – il canto di quelle Sirene senza le quali non c'è nulla».

E los angeles stessa cosa mi è stata detta più volte da varie persone, che respingevano los angeles filosofia in step with le sue contraddizioni. In risposta, io citavo loro un pungente aforisma di Nicolás Gómez Dávila: “la filosofia è proprio l’arte di contraddirsi reciprocamente senza annullarsi”; e, aggiungevo, non solo senza annullarsi, ma arricchendosi dialetticamente proprio in questo contraddirsi. L’uomo può trovare nella filosofia quelle ali che gli permettono di volare molto in alto, e di realizzare, in questo continuo cercare, los angeles sua vera natura.
