L'Avenir d'une illusion by Sigmund Freud

Social Science

By Sigmund Freud

L’illusion à laquelle Freud s’attaque dans ce court docket ouvrage paru en 1927, c’est l. a. faith. Selon le père de l. a. psychanalyse, nous avons créé les dieux, los angeles windfall et los angeles morale divine pour répondre à un

désir archaïque et childish : celui d’être rassurés contre l’incompréhensibilité du monde, l’angoisse de l. a. mort et los angeles violence des rapports humains. Toutefois l. a. faith, qui a european « des millénaires pour faire ses preuves », n’a rendu les hommes ni plus moraux ni plus heureux. Pour Freud, elle a fait son temps : grâce à l. a. technological know-how, l’humanité va sortir de l’enfance, et l’illusion s’écroulera. Mais sur quoi fondera-t-on alors l. a. moralité ? En privant l’homme des croyances religieuses, ne risque-t-on pas de basculer dans le chaos ? Enfin, los angeles technological know-how n’apparaît-elle pas elle-même comme un nouvel objet de croyance ? Pamphlet antireligieux selon certains, L’Avenir d’une phantasm, jalon essentiel de los angeles réflexion de Freud sur l. a. tradition, est un texte plus ambigu qu’on ne croit. automobile, s’il peut être lu comme un manifeste en faveur de l’établissement d’une éthique séparée de los angeles faith, il ne promet cependant à l’homme libéré de los angeles foi religieuse que des lendemains qui chantonnent à mi-voix.

Un candide à sa fenêtre. Dégagements II by Régis Debray

Social Science

By Régis Debray

Je ne prise guère l. a. littérature d’idées. Ses angles droits sont trop fastidieusement masculins et sûrs d’eux pour capter l’émotion, le tremblement, l’inattendu du réel. Pourquoi récidiver ? Parce qu’on résiste moins, avec l’âge, aux impulsions du farfelu, jusqu’à se permettre quelques divagations sur les dieux et les hommes, le beau et le moche, le mort et le vif, et même sur l’avenir de l’humanité. Sans dramatiser : les échappées qui suivent sont à un essai ce qu’une flânerie est à un défilé, ou des songeries sont à un traité de morale. Elles demandent seulement au lecteur un peu d’indulgence pour ce qu’elles peuvent avoir de mélancolique, de cocasse ou d’injuste. R. D.
