La Notion de perplexité à la Renaissance

0.00 CHF

The notion of perplexity plays a central part in Rabelais’s Tiers Livre. The question ‘Am I to be a cuckold?’ introduces the first truly literary staging of the notion, drawing from both the legal concept of perplexitas, which denotes the awkward situation arising from two mutually exclusive laws, and the theological use of the word, which relates primarily to the conflict between canon law and personal conscience. From Panurge’s initial perplexity to the (questionable) solution found in the Cinquième Livre, it is perhaps possible to read a metaphoric progress from terrestrial perplexity to the celestial Jerusalem.
