Abstract

Not only things, as Marx also shows analyzing the goods as the new hieroglyphs marking the saturated space of the metropolis, but also man is double, and his embodied, deeply physiological economy too. His hungry stomach is twofold, because it takes everything but does not nourish at all, it cries of various and heterogeneous excitements, not of real food to be absorbed and transformed, in short it lives by an instant without past or future. So, we have to read "The ‘modernity’ through the image of food and digestion”, and this is the task and the agenda of the physiological and psychological genealogy clearly identified by Nietzsche in a fragment of the autumn of 1888 and uncompromising pursued in all his work. As Valéry and Péguy also illustrate, the experience of contemporary men is in fact poor and sick, characterized by a radical duplicity and a contradiction without synthesis. Diagnosis is implacable and made possible by a widespread use of gastrological metaphor, applied to all fields of experience and language by a reckless writing of history. As Valéry and Péguy also illustrate, the experience of contemporary men is in fact poor and sick, characterized by a radical duplicity and a contradiction without synthesis. The opposite of this logic of illness and insensitivity for too many sensations and sensational choc, and the reverse of this oblivion for too much rapidity, is an extreme being anti- or even pre-modern. In modern times, the training of a genuine clinic criticism about prejudices and supposed self-knowledge involves a regression and an alteration of own historical identities, believes and values. Finally, as Benjamin and Warburg revealed, criticism is like to become again animal and interpretation is like to regain the slowness and melancholy of endless chewing, as a dog or a cow.

Non seulement les choses, comme le montre Marx analysant les marchandises comme les nouveaux hiéroglyphes marquant l'espace saturé de la métropole, mais l'homme aussi est double, et notamment son économie incarnée, profondément physiologique. Son ventre affamé est double, parce qu'il prend tout mais ne se nourrit pas du tout : il est clivé entre des excitations diverses et hétérogènes, il est occupé non pas par de la vraie nourriture à absorber et transformer. Bref, le ventre des modernes vit d'un instant sans passé ni futur. En somme, on doit lire «la modernité à travers l'image de la nourriture et de la digestion», et telle est la tâche et l'agenda de la généalogie physiologique et psychologique clairement identifiée par Nietzsche dans un fragment de l'automne 1888 et intransigeante poursuivie dans tout son œuvre. Comme l'illustrent Valéry et Péguy aussi, l'expérience des hommes contemporains est en fait pauvre et malade, caractérisée par une duplicité radicale et une contradiction sans synthèse: le diagnostic est implacable et rendu possible par un usage généralisé de la métaphore gastrologique, appliquée à tous les domaines de l'expérience et du langage par une écriture de l’histoire risquée et originelle. Comme l'illustrent aussi Valéry et Péguy, l'expérience des hommes contemporains est en réalité pauvre et malade, caractérisée par une duplicité radicale et une contradiction sans synthèse. Le contraire de cette logique de maladie et d'insensibilité par trop de sensations et trop de choc sensationnel, et le revers de cet oubli par trop de rapidité, est un devenir anti-, voire pré- moderne. Dans les temps modernes, une véritable critique clinique des préjugés et de la prétendue connaissance de soi implique une régression et une altération de ses propres identités historiques, croit et va. Enfin, comme l'ont révélé Benjamin et Warburg, la critique est de redevenir animal et l'interprétation revient à retrouver la lenteur et la mélancolie d'une mastication sans fin, comme un chien ou une vache.
