L'argument de la filiation : aux fondements des sociétés européennes et méditerranéennes by Marc Abélès( )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: L’argument de la filiation est souvent invoqué par les anthropologues à l’appui des débats qui les opposent, au cœur de leur discipline, sur ce qui est donné, commun à l’ensemble des sociétés humaines, et ce qui est construit dans des contextes culturels particuliers. Quoi de plus «naturel», de plus «universel» en effet que cette relation filiative qui répond aux nécessités de la reproduction sexuée de l’espèce, invariant qui relève des mêmes évidences que la distinction des sexes ? Le présent ouvrage, présenté sous la forme d’un recueil de textes, réunit des spécialistes de différentes disciplines – anthropologues, historiens, juristes- qui explorent la manière, relativement convergente, dont la filiation est établie dans des sociétés, anciennes et modernes, situées autour de la Méditerranée. Ces sociétés, polythéistes ou relevant des trois grandes religions monothéistes nées dans cette aire, donnent à voir des agencements qui lient la filiation, et plus largement la parenté, à la constitution de l’ordre social et cosmique. Des pratiques d’alliance de mariage dans la proximité consanguine brouillent le calcul de la filiation, la distinction des lignées paternelle et maternelle, celle de l’ascendence et de la descendance… Les récits d’origine aussi bien que la manière de dire le droit expriment les débats qui s’ouvrent ainsi et sous-tendent la définition des règles de prohibition de l’inceste. Ces débats sont renouvelés dans le contexte contemporain de développement des techniques de procréation assistée. Ils montrent que la définition et le calcul de la filiation n’interviennent pas seulement dans le champ particulier de la parenté, mais déterminent aussi la transmission intergénérationnelle des biens matériels et symboliques, ainsi que les identités et les statuts, éventuellement les titres politiques ; ils relèvent simultanément de la codification du droit
A lady's man : the cicisbei, private morals and national identity in Italy by Roberto Bizzocchi( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three people in a marriage : a woman and two men. This was the eighteenth-century Italian aristocratic model of marriage, characterized by the presence of the cicisbeo, the official escort of another man's wife. Did this delineate a clear and brazen sexual depravity or rather a complex and refined social institution, revealing many aspects of Italian civilization in the Age of the Enlightenment? Not only was the presence of a cicisbeo part of a matrimonial, family model; it was also an important factor socially and politically. In a period in which the presence of women at parties was sought--at the theatre and in salons--the lady's escort played an essential part in promoting a couple's social life. Indeed, the company and friendship (and perhaps love) which bound a lady and her escort occurred with the knowledge and under the control of the families of the interested parties. Of course, this 'triangular' arrangement was not unproblematic. The existence of a third party posed a threat to conjugal fidelity and the legitimacy of offspring and, towards the early nineteenth century, when the ideals of Romanticism and the French Revolution were popular there was a rapid decline in the practice. For as Italy reconstructed its national identity alongside other modern European countries the image of private immorality associated with cicisbeism constituted an intolerable blemish."--Page 4 de la couverture
Cicisbei : morale privata e identità nazionale in Italia by Roberto Bizzocchi( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in Italian and French and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un damerino, un farfallone che svolazza intorno alle donne, un frequentatore di ambienti snob, un personaggio tra l'effeminato e il galante, ben introdotto nella società del bel mondo. Se dovessimo immaginarci un cicisbeo oggi, lo descriveremmo così. Ma c'è stato un momento, anzi proprio un secolo, in cui la parola, appena coniata, ha indicato un ruolo specifico. Nel Settecento, cicisbeo era chi viveva al fianco della moglie di un altro, uscendo con lei in società e tenendole compagnia giorno e sera, se non giorno e notte, apertamente e con l'approvazione del marito. Il costume era diffuso a tal punto tra la nobiltà italiana da farsi cifra di un'epoca e di una società, oggetto di discussione morale ed espressione artistica. Immortalato dal genio letterario del Parini come dall'arguzia comica di Goldoni, rappresentato nei quadri di artisti come Longhi e Tiepolo, il cicisbeo finisce per incarnare, agli occhi degli osservatori stranieri, l'emblema della presunta immoralità italiana. La verità è però diversa e ha a che vedere con il sistema dei matrimoni combinati d'antico regime e con il risveglio illuministico dell'aspirazione alla libertà. Libertà controllata e di breve durata. I moralizzatori non avranno da attendere troppo: il cinico, frivolo cicisbeo soccomberà in fretta travolto dall'onda grave dello zelo romantico e risorgimentale."--Front inside flap of dust jacket

The trivial sublime : theology and American poetics by Linda Munk( )

2 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, scholars writing about the American Sublime have defined it in terms of a landscape of absence - an inner and outer landscape characterized by vastness, by blankness, by unrelieved whiteness, and by the so-called Oedipal struggle for power. Working firmly against these received notions, Linda Munk locates the American Sublime in the seemingly insignificant things of the everyday: in small and near and common objects, in humble persons, and in what the philosopher Stanley Cavell has called the 'ordinariness' of the American language. Focusing clearly on works by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, Flannery O'Connor and Jonathan Edwards, Dr. Munk develops a theory of the 'Trivial Sublime' that attends to the theology of the created world in its most minute and particular detail. For British readers especially, The Trivial Sublime offers a challenging explanation of the otherness of the American canon
