Morin about Aesthetic and Art

19 Jun

Among the uninteresting things that get me through whatsapp I got a video that said that part of Alzheimer’s is social, in fact it was used to talk about dementia and sclerosis, not only because they knew the subject badly, but because social life was easier and more enjoyable.
Edgar Morin was in Sao Paulo, and at june 18 he seems to be the living example of this, still able to surprise his audience, has already written about the question of method, the foundations lost in modernity, land-fatherhood and a world citizenship, a book of love and poetry after the death of his companion Edwiges, now surprises talking about aesthetics and pleasure.
The conversation took place at Sesc Pinheiros, starting at 8pm, with live streaming through Facebook and YouTube videos, I delayed to post today because I wanted to look forward to it.
His proposal is now of a “poetic state,” in which resistance to modern power is not the dictatorship of arms, but the idea of becoming robots through economic power and impose an accelerated pace of life, as the Society of Bournot´s Byung Chul-Han.
Valuing the human state of aesthetic creativity is for him a second state in which one can feel “passionate, admired, in communion with others, marveling, transported, transfigured, inspired.
Something that is at the edge of the mystic, without being [clearly] religious. ” I say clearly because transfiguring or blazing is not possible without some clearly religious form, I am not talking about self-suggestion or fanatical spiritualism, but about poetry and art.
This state allows man something that Morin considers essential, allow man a particular emotion, a contemplative state Chul-Han would say, says the master at the height of his maturity without feeling old age: “Music, poetry, literature and other arts have always been present and active in my life “.
He is considered the great thinker of complexity, named for the studies that privilege multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies for problem solving, remember that he along with Nicolascu Barsarab and Lima de Freitas are authors of the ”Transdisciplinarity Charter” of Arrábida, Portugal.
Morin defends literature as a source of inspiration for this complexity, he says: “” a novel offers me a knowledge about humanity that no science can achieve because it presents complex relationships. Therefore, I believe that it is not possible to teach only through science “, when referring to the current difficulties of education. I have the impression that Morin will not die, his texts certainly will not, but his earthly life will be transported by angels to some place that will have a new name, a kind of earthly or transfigured earthly paradise, something like the biblical one: “a new heaven and a new earth, “described in John’s Apocalipse Revelation, verse 21.
