Download E-books La vie: Hannah Arendt, ou l'action comme naissance et comme étrangeté (Le génie féminin, Tome 1) PDF

By Julia Kristeva

Los angeles vie, los angeles folie, les mots : trois femmes s'en sont faites les exploratrices lucides et passionnées en engageant leur life autant que leur pensée, et en éclairant pour nous les enjeux majeurs de notre temps : Hannah Arendt (1906-1975), Melanie Klein (1882-1960) et Colette (1873-1954). Les trois volumes de cet ouvrage, dont voici le premiere, se proposent d'en retracer l'aventure.

L'impact de certaines oeuvres ne se traduit pas à l. a. somme de leurs éléments. Il dépend de l'incision historique qu'elles opèrent, de leurs répercussions et de leurs suites, de notre réception. Quelqu'un s'est trouvé à cette intersection, en a cristallisé les possibilities : le génie est ce sujet-là. Trois femmes extraordinaires ont ainsi marqué l'histoire de ce siècle. Mais qu'est-ce qui fait l. a. singularité de chacune ?

Hannah Arendt, philosophe et politologue, est tout entière prise dans une méditation sur l. a. vie qui demeure notre ultime après l. a. crise des religions et idéologies. Vie menacée, vie désirable : mais quelle vie ? Face aux camps des deux totalitarismes, c'est sur le miracle de los angeles natalité que se concentre l'oeuvre de cette rescapée du nazisme qui, en dialogue avec Heidegger, et en rejetant l'automatisation moderne de l'espèce, pose des jalons d'une motion politique envisagée en tant que pluralité vivante : comme naissance et comme étrangeté. Une utopie ? A moins que ce ne soit une manière de pardon, et donc une promesse..
