Sex and sensuality in the ancient world by Giulia Sissa( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Giulia Sissa looks at sensuality and sexual desire in the Greek, Roman and early Christian worlds, demonstrating how modern concepts of sexuality emerge from the practices and theories of the ancient world. In contrast to other recent scholars, Sissa emphasizes the centrality of heterosexual desire and passion in the classical period, arguing that the importance of homosexuality has been over-emphasised." "Drawing widely on the literature and philosophy of the time, Sissa examines each culture in turn and challenges many of our assumptions. In particular, she draws a distinction between pleasure and desire in the ancient world, and analyses in detail the different ways in which men and women were seen to experience erotic feeling, looking closely at the portrayal of transgressive women such as Medea, Clytemnestra and Jocasta."--Jacket
Jealousy : a forbidden passion by Giulia Sissa( Book )

20 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amorous jealousy is not a monster, as Shakespeare's venomous Iago claims. It is neither prickly and bitter fancy, nor a cruel and mean passion, nor a symptom of feeble self-esteem. All those who have experienced its wounds are well aware that it is not callous, nasty, delusional and ridiculous. It is just painful. Yet for centuries moralists have poured scorn and contempt on a feeling that, in their view, we should fight in every possible way. It is allegedly a disease to be treated, a moral vice to be eradicated, an ugly, pre-modern, illiberal, proprietary emotion to be overcome. Above all, no-one should ever admit to being jealous. So should we silence this embarrassing sentiment? Or should we see it, like the heroines of Greek tragedy, as a fundamental human demand for reciprocity in love? By examining its cultural history from the ancient Greeks to La Rochefoucauld, Hobbes, Kant, Stendhal, Freud, Beauvoir, Sartre, and Lacan, this book demonstrates how jealousy, far from being a "green-eyed" fiend, reveals the intense and apprehensive nature of all erotic love, which is the desire to be desired. We should never be ashamed to love"--

Spécialiste de la pensée grecque, l'auteur mobilise la philosophie antique et médiévale pour comprendre un problème contemporain, celui de la drogue qui engendre une accoutumance parfois mortelle. Réciproquement, elle se sert des témoignages d'écrivains modernes et contemporains qui ont puisé dans la drogue une bonne part de leur inspiration, aboutissant ainsi à une histoire de la jouissance

L'âme est un corps de femme by Giulia Sissa( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre met le doigt sur l'un des paradoxes les plus profonds parce que les plus anciens de la culture occidentale : dans un même mouvement, les femmes se trouvent exclues de la rationalité, et l'âme n'est pensée qu'à l'aide de métaphores féminines. Cette lecture des textes classiques est un voyage au coeur de la culture occidentale où s'enracine un questionnement de la différence des sexes

Diego Lanza, lecteur des œuvres de l'Antiquité : poésie, philosophie, histoire de la philologie by Angela Andrisano( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Figure critique majeure des études de philologie classique en Italie, Diego Lanza a renouvelé en profondeur l'approche des œuvres de la littérature grecque ancienne. Ses travaux conjuguent un intérêt, partiellement hérité de la philologie historique, pour l'histoire de la tradition, avec une analyse, inspirée notamment de Marx et de Gramsci, de la fonction des textes anciens comme instruments de médiation idéologique, interrogeant ainsi conjointement le passé et le présent des appropriations culturelles. Les problématiques de l'anthropologie occupent une place privilégiée dans sa lecture de l'Antiquité, mais leur espace de référence n'est pas celui de l'anthropologie structurale, de la psychologie historique ou de la critique symbolique de l'école française. C'est plutôt l'étude du folklore, où l'analyse de la culture populaire est orientée par un intérêt spécifique pour les antagonismes qui la structurent. Les essais réunis dans ce volume reviennent sur les objets auxquels Diego Lanza s'est intéressé - poésie archaïque (Homère), théâtre classique (Euripide, Aristophane), philosophie « présocratique » et classique (Anaxagore, Aristote), histoire de la philologie - et dans la diversité de leurs points de vue, esquissent un bilan des aspects les plus significatifs d'une œuvre scientifique originale et stimulante
