13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in French and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IN RODER TO EXPLORE THE RELATIONS BETWEEN NATURE AND MAN IN MADAME BOVARY AS WE INTEND TO DO,IT SEEMS FIRST OF ALL NECESSARY TO RECALL THE FUNDAMENTAL CONVICTION WHICH FLAUBERT'S METAPHYSICAL AND AESTHETIC ATTITUDE IS BASED ON : TRUTH LIES IN NATURE,AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES FROM MAN IS MOST OFTEN SHEER LIES AND UGLINESS. ALTHOUGH NATURE REPRESENTS BEAUTY AND TRUTH BECAUSE IT IS THE ABSOLUTE,MAN IS CHARACTERISED BY HIS NARCISSISTIC TENDENCY TO CONCLUDE,TO REDUCE THE ABSOLUTE ACCORDING TO HIS DESIRES AND HIS LIMITED MEASURE,WHICH STANDS FOR FLAUBERTIAN DEFINITION OF STUPIDITY.MAN LIVES IN FALSEHOOD FOR HE SUBSTITUTES TO NATURE AN ILLUSORY ORDER ADAPTED TO HIS IMAGE AND THE WORSHIP OF HIMSELF.SO,WE PURPOSE TO INSIST ON THE CENTRAL QUESTION OF STUPIDITY AS METAPHYSICAL CONCLUSION,AND TO PROCEED FROM NATURE TO NARCISSISM. THE FIRST STEP OF OUR STUDY DEALS WITH THE AESTHETIC PROBLEM OF BOTH SYMBOLISM AND DESCRIPTION AND INTENDS TO SHOW THAT TRUTH AND MEANING LIE IN NATURE ONLY.FLAUBERT'S TENDENCY IS TO REJECT SYMBOLISM AS WELL AS ANTHROPOMORPHISM.HIS PURPOSE IS NOT TO IMPOSE A SIGNIFICATION ON THINGS,BUT,ON THE CONTRARY,TO BE OPEN TO THE INFINITE AND DIVINE SIGNIFICATION OF THINGS.THEN,WE SHALL OPPOSE TO THE TRUTH OF THINGS THE LYING CONCLUSIONS OF MODERN HUMANISM (WHICH IS IN FACT NARCISSISM)BY GOING THROUGH ALL THE LEVELS OF METAPHYSICAL STUPIDITY.TRUTH OF THINGS,LIES OF THE HUMAN ORDER WHICH ENCROACHES UPON THEM: HERE IS THE CENTRAL OPPOSITION WHICH WE WOULD LIKE TO EXPLORE IN THE INTENT TO RESPECT BOTH THE INFINITY OF NATURE AND THE INFINITY OF STUPIDITY
