Asymétrie du plaisir et naissance de l’esthétique. À partir d’un motif valéryen

Fabrizio Desideri


Moving from the pages of Cahiers and Discours sur l'esthétique, where Paul Valéry clarifies the energetic value of aesthetics that rises from pleasure, the essay aims to promote a radical reconfiguration of conceptual domain of aesthetics. The sensation, in the surprising and gratifying form of pleasure, becomes expression of the efficiency of the link between emotional device and perceptive recognition: the thick and harmonizing synthesis that's peculiar to aesthetic.



Aesthetics; Valéry; Sensation; Pleasure; Expressivism.
