| February 24, 2017 | admin | 0

By Sigmund Freud

Perguntando-se sobre os critérios – ao seu ver equivocados – usados pelos seres humanos para eleger os valores da vida que lhes são caros e assim traçar caminhos na busca pela felicidade, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) inicia uma reflexão sobre a origem da necessidade do sentimento religioso no homem. Recuperando ideias de seus textos anteriores, ele compõe

“O mal-estar na cultura” (escrito em 1929 e publicado em 1930), um dos mais perturbadores ensaios jamais escritos no que diz respeito ao desenvolvimento cultural da humanidade.

Ao investigar por que o ser humano é tão pouco dotado para ser e permanecer feliz, Freud revela que um dos principais e invencíveis obstáculos à felicidade é a constituição psíquica do homem. Ele examina de perto – lançando mão de ferramentas psicanalíticas – o processo de desenvolvimento cultural necessário para que as pessoas possam viver em sociedade. A conclusão é a de que não só a civilização, mas a própria cultura humana implicam uma diminuição na felicidade dos indivíduos, tendo como subproduto um alienável e generalizado sentimento de culpa.

Every literary textual content keeps to speak with madness—with what has been excluded, decreed irregular, unacceptable, or senseless—by dramatizing a dynamically revitalized relation among feel and nonsense, cause and unreason, the readable and the unreadable.

O futuro de uma ilusão

| February 24, 2017 | admin | 0

By Sigmund Freud

Qual o futuro da humanidade? Este é o ponto de partida de “O futuro de uma ilusão”, ensaio escrito por Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) em 1927, em pleno e agitado período entreguerras. Se a cultura humana repousa precariamente sobre a repressão de impulsos antissociais naturais a todos, a religião é a vital força a controlar estes impulsos, o que nos leva à outra pergunta: qual a origem psicológica da necessidade do sentimento religioso no indivíduo? O que, em cada pessoa, a torna propensa a crer num sistema irracional, indemonstrá­vel e de recusa à realidade? Freud demonstra que a religião (“a neurose obsessiva common da humanidade”) depende de sentimentos infantis não resolvidos e afirma ser ela, bem como seus dogmas, a culpada pela atrofia intelectual da maior parte dos seres humanos. Para Freud, a fim de o homem se organi­zar razoável e saudavelmente sobre a Terra, livre de ilusões, urge uma mudança radical nas formas de educação – que ele defende magistralmente neste texto breve mas impactante, tan­to hoje quanto na época de sua publicação.
