Download E-books Konversionen: Fremderfahrungen in Ethnologischer und Interkultureller Perspektive (Studien zur Interkulturellen Philosophie 13) (Studien Zur ... Philosophie Interculturelle) (German Edition) PDF

Unter dem Begriff der Konversionen erkundet dieser kulturwissenschaftliche Band Formen einer Umkehrung, die einsetzt, wenn die Erfahrung des Beobachtetwerdens als zentraler Bestandteil von Fremderfahrungen anerkannt wird. In den versammelten Texten wird ausgeführt, wie diese aus der ethnologischen Feldforschung gewonnene Erinnerung als Vorbild für andere disziplinäre Perspektiven dienen kann.

Die Ethnologie liefert dabei den viel zu lange vernachlässigten Hinweis auf die Wichtigkeit des Blicks des anderen in der Fremderfahrung; die philosophische Perspektive auf interkulturelle Dialoge liefert den Hinweis auf die Wichtigkeit des Sprechens des anderen. Aus diesen Hinweisen ergeben sich Ansprüche an ethnographische und literarische Texte und an andere wissenschaftliche Disziplinen sowie an eine angemessene Lektürepraxis. Die Texte des vorliegenden Bandes versuchen, diese Ansprüche exemplarisch einzulösen. Sie zeigen in einer neuartigen interdisziplinären Zusammenstellung sowohl einzelne Fälle der Umkehrung von Blickrichtungen als auch das Prinzip der Kritik und Erweiterung einer eurozentristischen Philosophie durch die Einführung einer ethnologischen und interkulturellen Perspektive.

Download E-books La fascination du Commandeur: Le sacre et l'ecriture en France a partir du debat-Bataille (Faux Titre 284) (French Edition) PDF

By Christophe Halsberghe

À partir d'une approche contrastive de l'oeuvre de Georges Bataille, 'La fascination du Commandeur' montre que l. a. pensée française, tout au lengthy du XXe siècle, a tergiversé entre deux expériences du sacré : l'une immédiate, à même le corps, l'autre symbolisée, passant par l'écriture. Dans le contexte d'une Troisième République faisant du sacré un moyen de recentrement nationwide, Bataille reste tributaire de Durkheim et de Mauss par les difficultés qu'il rencontre à reconnaître au sacré une size langagière. Ses principaux interlocuteurs Breton, Caillois, Leiris, Paulhan, Blanchot, Lacan ne manquent pas d'ailleurs de l'interpeller sur ce element, même si certains d'entre eux se montreront à leur travel indécis sur l. a. query. D'autres, tel Sartre, évacuent ostensiblement l'écriture mais sans en accomplir le deuil. En somme, il y va à chaque fois du credo esthétique de Proust qui tôt ou tard apparaîtra pour chacun comme une véritable determine de Commandeur. Après l. a. mort de Bataille, le débat demeure d'actualité : l'expérience langagière du sacré animera des débats en psychanalyse (Lacan, Lyotard, Deleuze et Guattari), en philosophie (Derrida, Nancy, Lacoue-Labarthe), en littérature (Blanchot), tout comme elle déterminera l'avant-gardisme d'après-guerre, notamment avec le groupe 'Tel Quel'.
