Rien de plus fragile que la faculté humaine d'admettre la réalité, d'accepter sans réserves l'impérieuse prérogative du réel. Cette faculté se trouve si souvent prise en défaut qu'il semble raisonnable d'imaginer qu'elle n'implique pas la reconnaissance d'un droit imprescriptible - celui du réel à être perçu - mais figure plutôt une sorte de tolérance, conditionnelle et pr ...more

Es un libro muy breve, pero realmente interesante, que genera nuevas preguntas a una problemática que viene desde la mitología griega: ¿qué entendemos por destino? ¿Cómo enfrentamos una realidad que no nos gusta? ¿Cómo funciona esa ilusión de escoger o derechamente no ver la realidad? Hay muchos ejemplos, especialmente una revisión del mito de Edipo. Excelente.

Visione alquanto originale sul realismo e la percezione del reale.

Il pensiero di R. si basa su un assunto molto semplice: gran parte delle problematiche sul reale si fondano sul concetto di doppio e di sdoppiamento. Questo conduce all'illusione. L'illusione è ciò che sdoppia il reale: si vede giusto, ma si sbaglia ad avvertire le conseguenze di quanto osservato.

Il testo, successivamente, analizza tre casi di doppio: evento, metafisica, psicologia.

Nel primo caso, riprende il concetto tragico d

Le refus du réel engendre chez l’Homme l’une des 4 réactions suivantes :

- La forme la plus simple, soit l’anéantissement de soi, c'est-à-dire le suicide

- La folie

- Une fuite vers l’alcool ou les drogues

- L’acceptation de la chose perçue, mais le refus des conséquences, en quelque sorte une perception inutile = illusion (déplacement de la réalité)

Contrairement au névrosé, l’illusionné est incurable [surtout parce qu’il ne veut pas guérir, l’illusion est son armure pro

Rosset's books never really end with me; I’ve always the impression of having half grasped his point, or grasped the point but lost it in the workings out. This does not come, as it might in other cases, from a lack of clarity on his part, either of thought or of expression, but from the depth of his thinking. I think. In any case, I’ll keep reading his books for their sheer poetry, the completed beauty of certain passages in all his work.

Gostei do livro, trata de conceitos que considero muito interessantes sobre a realidade e como a percebemos, suas representações.

kinda convoluted at times (the subjects he addresses are like that) but very precise at the same time. it's really his writing style that holds the very brief explanation into duplication back.

Très bon livre! d'une clarté et d'une poésie très agréables, et la thèse développée est extrêmement convaincante.

Ancien élève de l'École normale supérieure, agrégé de philosophie, il a enseigné la philosophie à l'université de Nice.
“The various aspects of illusion described so far refer to a single function, a single structure, a single failure. The function is to protect from the real; the structure does not involve refusing to perceive the real but, rather, splitting it in two; the failure lies in recognizing the protective double too late as the very reality from which one thought one had found protection. This is the curse of evasion: by way of a phantasmatic duplication, it sends us back to the undesirable starting point, the real. We can see now why evasion is always a mistake: it is always inoperative, because the real is always right. We may, admittedly, try to protect ourselves from a future event, if that happens to be possible; we shall never protect ourselves from a past or present event or one that is 'certain to come to pass,' as in the oracular symbolics which announces in advance an ineluctable necessity that already has all the characteristics of a present necessity. And the act by which one attempts to slough off that necessity will never be able to 'do any better' than literally reproduce the feared even or, even more exactly, constitute that event. This is what happens to Oedipus, as it happens to everyone at odds with himself - that is to say, to everyone at some point or other of his existence.” 0 likes
