Filosofia e Poesia : Congresso Internacional de Língua Portuguesa
Luís G. Soto
AbstractIn this text, I try to reflect on the capacity of empowerment inherent to literature and to philosophy by using the classical concepts of potestas and auctoritas in connection with some ideas expressed by the French philosopher Roland Barthes and with some stories written by the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. First I examine the three forces of literature pointed by Barthes: mathesis, mimesis, semiosis. And I then analyze a short story about a flower, the relationship between a man and a rose, written by Lispector. She gives also some keys to interpret it. In my reading, I follow her suggestions and, in order to wide my view, I even add two concepts by Barthes: studium and punctum. I interpret Lispector’s story from both points of view: studium (a philosophical approach) and punctum (a personal approach). In conclusion, I defend that literature can be a “mathesisis singularis”, but philosophy is ---ought to be--- a “mathesis universalis”.
