Download Suggestione: Potenza e limiti del fascino politico (Italian by Andrea Cavalletti PDF

By Andrea Cavalletti

Un maestro incantatore tiene in pugno los angeles folla. È los angeles figura grottesca, e ancora attuale, che Thomas Mann ritrae all'alba del fascismo.
Il fenomeno si registrava già, con dirompenza infettiva, nella Francia di effective Ottocento: los angeles suggestione ipnotica. los angeles drammaturgia dello sguardo tra magnetizzatore e sonnambulo sconfinava allora dalle atmosfere medicalizzate delle grandi cliniche consistent with invadere indifferentemente salotti altolocati e miseri palchi da fiera. Tutto è suggestione, decretava il neurologo Hippolyte Bernheim nella sua opera maggiore, tradotta in tedesco da un giovane Freud dissidente verso una metodica che giudicava tirannica. In effetti los angeles posta in gioco di quell'epidemia suggestiva period politica, oltre che scientifica in senso stretto, perché lì si metteva a nudo l. a. dinamica del biopotere che governa l. a. società moderna. Che ogni dispositivo di dominio sia suggestivo è quanto si può concludere seguendo los angeles trama di fascinazioni che Andrea Cavalletti ci dispiega davanti, in un saggio intenso dove i chiaroscuri di pratiche e teorie a lungo dibattute vengono perlustrati nelle loro valenze finora sottaciute. Dal magnetismo animale del Settecento all'ipnotismo, nella sua versione paludata o cialtronesca, si copy un esercizio di imposizione che identifica l. a. stessa vita associata con una materia suggestionabile, oggetto di contagio in keeping with through imitativa. È possibile sottrarsi alla presa, ossia attuare una controsuggestione? los angeles domanda non riguarda solo un passato di occhi pungenti e volontà spossate. Chiama in causa le forme di resistenza che nel nostro presente ridanno vigore al pensiero come stile di vita. Perché il magnetizzatore non è mai del tutto padrone, e non ogni sonnambulo è sempre servo.
