'Emotion Does Not Say I' seminar by Georges Didi-Huberman (1st session)

Georges Didi-Huberman

03 Nov. 2014

What does revealing our emotions mean? Crying in public, for instance? For Hegel pathos is a privilege. Nietzsche sees it as the ‘origin’, despite a philosophical tradition that saw emotions as a dead end both for language and action. We will briefly analyse how, at the opposite end of the spectrum, Bergson considers the intensity of emotions, while Sartre and Merleau-Ponty explore their capacity for opening up to the world, Freud their dialectic nature, and Deleuze (after Spinoza and Nietzsche) their intrinsic power. If emotion signifies ‘movement outside of…’, doesn’t it follow that emotions place the I outside of itself?
