Abstract

Despite all the banter about philosophy being a discipline in the Modernity, the question about the discursive and ontological boundaries remains, whether philosophy produces knowledge, or not, after the Cartesian’s model. In his discussion, Fimiani related Descartes’ philosophical speech act as an auto-representation too, and reads the Discours as a Tableau. Discussing Descartes’s picture, he reveals the ideological fields, rhetorical sources and morphological models of philosophical authorship as an extra-disciplinary moment in history of philosophy but in art history too. The architectural analogy of tabula rasa, destruction and reconstruction of the room of Cogito’s one's own, is interpreted as theological intentioned despite his atheist value. Keys for this reading are the critics of Paul Valéry, Paul Claudel and Michel Péguy’s writings on Descartes, and the genealogy of Nietzsche.
