Magia y Retórica en la Grecia antigua

Jacqueline de Romilly

Magie et rhétorique en Grèce ancienne

Traduit par Nicolas Filicic 

Préface de  Monique
Trédé-Boulmer

Paris: Les Belles Lettres,160 pp.

ISBN : 9782251448879 

Créditée d’une origine divine par les Anciens, la
poésie a le pouvoir d’émouvoir et de charmer. Les fondateurs de la rhétorique
l’avaient bien compris, utilisant les rythmes et les styles poétiques pour
conférer à leurs discours le pouvoir d’envoûter l’auditoire à la manière des
magiciens.

Dans ces quatre conférences prononcées à l’université de Harvard en 1974,
inédites en français, Jacqueline de Romilly analyse la relation liant
l’enchantement par les mots à l’inspiration divine et à la magie. Depuis l’audace
des procédés oratoires de Gorgias et leur condamnation platonicienne, à travers
la volonté de définition d’un art du discours par Isocrate et Aristote, jusqu’à
la réintroduction du sublime et de l’irrationnel en littérature par les auteurs
plus tardifs, Jacqueline de Romilly met en valeur l’aptitude des anciens Grecs
à entretenir un dialogue à travers les siècles, dans lequel chacun répond avec
précision et subtilité à son prédécesseur.

Lo medieval en el discurso político, hoy

Daniel Wollenberg

Medieval Imagery in Today’s Politics

Leeds. UK: Arc Humanities Press, 2018, 106pp

ISBN: 9781942401407

 

The election of fringe political parties on the
far and extreme right across Europe since spring 2014 has brought the political
discourse of «old Europe» and «tradition» to the foreground. Writers and
politicians on the right have called for the reclamation, rediscovery, and
return of the spirit of national identities rooted in the medieval past. Though
the «medieval» is often deployed as a stigmatic symbol of all that is
retrograde, against modernity, and barbaric, the medieval is increasingly being
sought as a bedrock of tradition, heritage, and identity. Both
characterizations – the medieval as violent other and the medieval as vital
foundation – are mined and studied in this book. It examines contemporary
political uses of the Middle Ages to ask why the medieval continues to play
such a prominent role in the political and historical imagination today.

Violación. Hard texts

Teaching rape in the medieval literature classroom: approaches to
difficult texts

Alison
Gulley (ed.)

Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press/ Leeds, UK : ARC
Humanities Press, 2018, vi, 218 p. : illustrations

ISBN:9781641890328

 

Teachers of medieval literature help students bridge the temporal,
contextual, and linguistic gulfs between the Middle Ages and the twenty-first
century. When episodes involving rape are thrown into the mix, that task
becomes even more difficult. The essays in this volume approach these difficult
texts in ways that are both academically and ethically sound, recognising that
students and teachers bring a variety of experiences to the classroom that
necessarily colour the reception of a given work.

Representación e imagen jurídica. Sobre Cultura visual del Derecho

Envisioning
legality: law, culture and representation

Timothy D. Peters and Karen Crawley (eds.)

Abingdon, Oxon; New York, NY: Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group,
2018, 259 pp. * 25 ills

ISBN: 9780367232566

This book addresses issues of law, representation and the image. Law is
constituted in and through the representations that hold us in their thrall,
and this book focuses on the ways in which cultural legal representations not
only reflect or contribute to an understanding of law, but constitute the very
fabric of legality itself. As such, each of these ‘readings’ of cultural texts
takes seriously the cultural as a mode of envisioning, constituting and
critiquing the law. And the theoretically sophisticated approaches utilised
here encompass more than simply an engagement with ‘harmless entertainment’.
Rather they enact and undertake specific political and critical engagements
with timely issues, such as: the redressing of past wrongs; recognising and
combatting structural injustices; and orienting our political communities in
relation to uncertain futures

ISBN:

Experts from the fields of law and
philosophy explore the works of Aristotle to illuminate the much-debated and
fascinating relationship between emotions and justice. Emotions matter in
connection with democracy and equity – they are relevant to the judicial
enforcement of rights, legal argumentation, and decision-making processes in
legislative bodies and courts. The decisive role that emotions, feelings and passions play in these processes cannot be
ignored – not even by those who believe that emotions have no legitimate place
in the public sphere. A growing body of literature on these topics recognizes
the seminal insights contributed by Aristotle. This book offers an analysis of
his thinking in this context, as well as proposals for dialogues between his
works and those written by a selection of modern and contemporary thinkers.

Judicial emotion as vice or virtue: perspectives both ancient and new / Terry
A. Maroney

Giovanni Bombelli —

Logoi enuloi: Aristotle’s contribution to the contemporary debate on emotions
and decision-making / Stefano Fuselli

Aristotle’s functionalism and the rise of nominalism in law and politics: law,
emotion and language / Saulo de Matos

On logos, pathos and ethos in judicial argumentation / Fabiana Pinho

Religion of humanity: a shift from a dialogical to a categorical model of
rationality / Liesbeth Huppes-Cluysenaer

Part III Moral Agency

Brito —

Aristotle and Lysias / Cristina Viano

Liesbeth Huppes-Cluysenaerhas a guest-appointment at the Faculty of Law of
the University of Amsterdam to 2020 in order to complete a project about
leading Dutch legal theorist Paul Scholten (1875-1946). Before she retired she
taught legal philosophy and legal sociology at the same faculty. Since 2009 she
and Nuno Coelho have convened a special workshop at the bi-annual conferences
of the IVR on the philosophy of Aristotle, which resulted in the edited volume Aristotle
and the Philosophy of Law Theory, Practice and Justice
in 2013.

Nuno Coelhoteaches law, ethics and philosophy of law in
Brazil (USP, UNAERP, USU). He published articles and books on Aristotle’s
Ethics and Politics, such as “ἕτεροι καὶ ἶσοι: Aristotle on diversity
and equality in the constitution of polis” and “Aristotle and The Philosophy of

Cine de juicios a instrucción y enjuiciamiento

Trial films on
trial: law, justice, and popular culture

Austin Sarat, Jessica Silbey, Martha
Merrill Umphrey (eds.)

Tuscaloosa:
The University of Alabama Press, 2019, 240 pp,

ISBN:
9780817320263

A collection of wide-ranging critical
essays that examine how the judicial system is represented on screen.
Historically, the emergence of the trial film genre coincided with the
development of motion pictures. In fact, one of the very first feature-length
films, Falsely Accused!, released in
1908, was a courtroom drama. Since then, this niche genre has produced such
critically acclaimed films as Twelve
Angry Men
, To Kill a Mockingbird,
and Anatomy of a Murder. The
popularity and success of these films can be attributed to the fundamental
similarities of filmic narratives and trial proceedings. Both seek to construct
a «»reality»» through storytelling and representation and
in so doing persuade the audience or jury to believe what they see. Trial Films on Trial: Law, Justice, and
Popular Culture
is the first book to focus exclusively on the special
significance of trial films for both film and legal studies. The contributors
to this volume offer a contemporary approach to the trial film genre. Despite
the fact that the medium of film is one of the most pervasive means by which
many citizens receive come to know the justice system, these trial films are
rarely analyzed and critiqued. The chapters cover a variety of topics, such as
how and why film audiences adopt the role of the jury, the narrative and visual
conventions employed by directors, and the ways mid-to-late-twentieth-century
trial films offered insights into the events of that period.

Su sopa de letras está servida, Mr. Melville

Édouard Marsoin

Melville et l’usage des plaisirs

Paris : Presses Sorbonne
Université, 2019, 592 pp.

ISBN : 979-10-231-0618-3

Dans cette Amérique que l’on dit souvent (à tort)
puritaine, au cœur du xixe siècle, quels sont les plaisirs possibles ?
C’est la question que pose l’œuvre en prose de Herman Melville, où se déploient
le potentiel et la puissance du plaisir et de la jouissance, à rebours de son
image d’auteur austère et désincarné privilégiée par une certaine tradition critique.

Melville et l’usage des plaisirs explore les
mondes-tables melvilliens, où la vie est une étrange affaire hybride, faite de
plaisir, de joie, de souffrance et de jouissance pris dans des relations de
tension antipéristatique. On y rencontre d’abondantes matières à plaisirs, des
corps-nourritures, plusieurs festins cannibales, maints banquets de paroles, un
escroc qui jouit, un zeste de sublime physiologique, une once de joie
désespérée, des symptômes de jouissance suicidaire, une pointe d’humour
tragique, des régimes ascétiques, bien des mariages sans plaisir (sauf un), un
bal de célibataires, quelques amitiés érotiques, des plaisirs disciplinaires,
diverses économies somatiques…

Suivant la recette melvillienne d’une riche mais
rigoureuse « bouillabaisse intellectuelle » (« intellectual
chowder »), cet ouvrage accommode des contemporains capitaux, des
prédécesseurs admirés, des philosophes d’époques variées, le tout accompagné
d’une députation digne d’Anacharsis Cloots de critiques et théoriciens, sans
qui aujourd’hui – deux-cents ans après sa naissance, cent ans après sa
renaissance – il ne serait possible de goûter Melville à sa juste saveur.
