«Hay que leer Psicología del arte en dos niveles: como psicología del arte y como psicología del arte. [...] Al comparar el libro de Vygotsky con otros textos sobre arte de los primeros años veinte percibimos de inmediato su excepcionalidad. En él, su autor interroga a las formas clásicas de l. a. literatura: los angeles fábula, los angeles novela y las tragedias de Shakespeare. Pero su atención no se centra en las controversias por aquel entonces de moda. [...] El gran problema que se plantea reviste un significado más amplio y genérico: una creación artística ¿qué es lo que hace?, ¿qué l. a. convierte en obra de arte? Éste es, en realidad, el problema estético capital, y no podemos ignorarlo si queremos ponderar el verdadero valor de una novedad surgida en el mundo del arte. En opinión del autor, al analizar los angeles estructura de una obra de arte uno debe recrear los angeles respuesta, los angeles actividad interna a l. a. que dicha obra da pie. Este concepto permitió a Vygotsky internarse en los secretos del valor perdurable de las grandes obras artísticas o descubrir esa fuerza en virtud de los angeles cual una epopeya griega o una tragedia shakesperiana siguen, en palabras de Marx, “suministrándonos goce artístico y, en ciertos sentidos, sirviéndonos como norma y modelo inalcanzable”.» De l. a. introducción de A. N. Leontiev

Theorization of sensual hope used to be no longer unusual within the eighteenth century; like many materialists of the French Enlightenment, Jean-Jacques Rousseau rejected imperatives based on metaphysical suppositions and seen the senses because the merely legitimate resource of philosophical wisdom. In Social agreement, Masochist Contract, Fayçal Falaky demonstrates that what distinguishes Rousseau is that the foundational degree on which he bases his materialist philosophy is a sexual intuition endowed, satirically, with an analogous elegant, self-abnegating attributes traditionally linked to Christian, metaphysical hope. to appreciate the aesthetics of Rousseau’s masochism is, Falaky argues, to appreciate how beliefs of Christian morality and religious ennoblement survived the Enlightenment, and the way God died, simply to be repackaged in new fetishes. if it is the imperious mistress of his erotic fantasies, the Arcadian nature of his philosophical reveries, or the chic legislations designed to raise the citizen from enslaving urge for food, Rousseau’s fetishes bring in the recent regulative beliefs of the trendy secular state.
