Abstract

Chanter la guerre, parcourir la géographie mondialisée des empires ibériques, élever les contemporains à la grandeur des héros antiques et montrer la vivante peinture leurs exploits : tels sont les grands enjeux de cette nouvelle épopée ibérique proposée par l'Espagnol Alonso de Ercilla et le Portugais Jerónimo Corte-Real entre 1569 et 1589. Sous leur plume, se dessine un nouveau patron de narration héroïque qui rompt avec le modèle du Roland furieux et concurrence Les Lusiades de Camões. Loin d'épouser une vision panégyrique de la guerre et de leur nation, les deux poètes en questionnent les codes et les pratiques dans une démonstration épique qui suscite une lecture critique de l'Histoire récente.

Abstract

The essays presented here are the outcome of research carried out by members of IFILNOVA (Institute for Philosophy of New University of Lisbon) in 2016.

The IFILNOVA Permanent Seminar seeks to show how values are relevant to humans (both socially and individually). This seminar is the ‘place’ where different research will converge towards a unified viewpoint. This includes the discussion of the following questions: What is the philosophical contribution to current affairs and decisions that depend crucially on values? Can philosophy make a difference, namely by bringing practical reason to bear on these affairs and decision? And how to do it? Which are our scientific ‘allies’ in this enterprise; psychology, communication sciences, even sociology and history?

This volume shows the connection between practical rationality and values and covers the dimensions ethics, aesthetics and politics.
