Download e-book for iPad: Crepuscolo di un idolo. Smantellare le favole freudiane by Michel Onfray

Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice. Questa religione è l. a. psicoanalisi, e più in particolare il freudismo. L’idea di Onfray è semplice e radicale: Freud ha tentato di costruire una scienza e non vi è riuscito; ha voluto provare che l’inconscio ha le sue leggi, l. a. sua logica intrinseca, può essere studiato mediante protocolli che riteneva scientifici, e tuttavia ha mentito, consistent with potersi fregiare degli emblemi della scientificità.

Quoted in Ward, p. 193, from an interview given by Chesterton to explain certain phases of the book, nearly twenty years after it was written.

First there is “minimal man”—child, savage, artist, god among the beasts. Then there is civilized man, giving law to the nations and searching the heavens. Finally, completing and ordinating the former elements, without banishing them, there is Christian man, exiled citizen of the City of God. Against this Christian balance and complexity come the barbarian forces of simplification and destruction. The Danish heroes are merely the Christian thanes simplified, isolated from the balancing discipline which Christianity imposes on man’s nature.

As an impressionist, the forms Quin thinks up are related only to himself. He does not believe in value that is not generated by his own ideas. Hence he sees no connection between form and essence. In fact he denies the existence of essence outside of his own perspective. The method of this art is to create emblems, or forms that stand for an object, and impose them on surroundings things. The mode is really a form of nonsense logic in that the intent is always to shatter the existence of ‘normal’ logic; and it has the same effects.
