Abstract

ALVARADO CASTILLO, Nicolás. THE DOUBLE SCENE: PHILOSOPHICAL USES OF THEATRE AND THEATRICAL DISTINCTIONS IN CONTEMPORARY FRENCH PHILOSOPHY. Univ. philos. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.71, pp.379-415. ISSN 0120-5323.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/javeriana.uph35-71.deft.

The purpose of this article is to show how the use of certain terms of theatre, that are employed to describe philosophical procedures or con cepts, reveals two different kinds of relations between philosophical dis course and artistic practices: On the one hand, some philosophers make a conscious and metaphorical use of the vocabulary of scenic practices to describe their own operations; on the other, the technical and historical determinations of these practices open up new interpretations of philo sophical constructs, even though, at first, they were not intended to do so by the authors that exploit them. To fulfil this purpose, this article analyzes significant moments of contemporary French thought-where there are frequent expressions such as scene and dramaturgy-, in order to trace the genealogy of that philosophical interest and explore a series of descriptions of the theory and practice of classical French theatre.

Keywords : contemporary French philosophy; philosophy and theatre; scene; Jacques Rancière; classical French theatre.
