  • Quelques commentaires à propos du nom ‘sujet’ en français / Further
           Remarks Concerning the Noun ‘Sujet’ in French

    • Authors: Irène Tamba
      Abstract: This short commentary seeks to give some further thoughts on the discussion concerning the noun sujet in the French language as taken up in Inter Faculty, vol. 7, Fragmentation and Divergence, by the articles of Berque, Wieviorka, and more especially from a linguistic point of view, that of Lebaud.

  • About Fragmentation and Divergence

    • Authors: Saburo AOKI
      Abstract: This introduction to volume 7 of Inter Faculty traces the reasoning and objectives for taking the theme of Fragmentation and Divergence as the focus of discussion. It takes a close look at the discussions proper and their outcome. In considering the issues taken up here, the introduction underscores the complexity of the systems that make up the present globalised world (economical, political, social, cultural) and questions the role of research in human and social sciences, highlighting the importance of articulating the phenomena of mankind and his existence and those of nature.

  • Nature, Culture: Trajecting Beyond Modern Dualism

    • Authors: Augustin BERQUE
      Abstract: Modern dualism, opposing the subject to the object, and therefore culture to nature, has made possible modern science and technology, and consequently modern civilization, but it has eventually produced an unsustainable world, which progressively destroys its own basement: the Earth. In order to survive, we have to overcome dualism, but is that rationally possible?Making use of the concepts oftrajection and trajective chains, this paper shows that not only concrete reality is trajective(neither purely objective nor purely subjective), but that modern physics itself has come to this evidence. Accordingly, beyond the abstraction of dualism, we have to conceive of reality anew, including in the field of the natural sciences.要旨現代の二重性、つまり自然に対立する文明の存在は、高度な科学技術を人類にもたらしたが、現代文明は自らの基盤である地球を破壊し続け、もはや維持できなくなりつつある。人類の生存のためには現代の二重性の克服が不可欠となるが、それは合理的に可能なのであろうか。本稿では、軌跡とその連鎖の概念を用いることにより、純粋な客観的立場や主観的な立場はあり得ず、具体的な事実のみが軌跡となり、現代物理学自体がその証拠となることを明らかにする。したがって、我々は現代の二重性という抽象概念を超えて、自然科学の分野を包括する新たな現実認識を獲得しなければならない。

  • Structural Violence and Migration: Explaining Global and Local Total

    • Authors: Aleš BUČAR RUČMAN
      Abstract: Decades ago Johan Galtung presented his perspective on violence which includes the distinction between structural, direct and cultural violence. This paper tries to incorporate his approach and present the connection between structural violence and migrations with focus on immigration in the EU. The author argues that the consequence of structural violence is the appearance of two types of excluded spaces: a) global total institutions, which include countries or entire regions of economically less or underdeveloped countries; b) local total institutions within the economically developed countries, which include physical spaces (immigrant neighbourhoods, ghettos, prisons, detention centers for foreigners, etc.) and also social spaces of exclusion in which immigrants are put due to stereotype, prejudice and consequential discrimination.要旨数十年前、ヨハン・ガルトゥングは構造的、直接的、文化的な暴力の違いを含む暴力についての見解を示した。本稿ではその視角を取り入れながら、EU内の移民政策に焦点を当て構造的暴力と移住の関係について述べたい。構造的暴力とは、以下の2つのタイプの排除された空間の出現であると考えられる。a) 経済的に遅れている国や発展途上国などを含むグローバルな空間の出現。b) 物理的な空間を含む経済先進国内の地域空間(移民地域、ゲットー、刑務所、外国人拘留センターなど)や固定観念による先入観や差別を受け移民が排除される社会的空間の出現。

  • Sortir de la violence: un chantier pour les sciences humaines et sociales
           / Exiting Violence: A Project for the Humanities and Social Sciences

    • Authors: Michel WIEVIORKA
      Abstract: Violence imports on the physical and moral integrity of the individual person, of groups, of whole societies, and sometimes even, beyond. However, exiting violence is not merely a matter of putting an end to violence, it is also one of once again giving meaning to the lives of individuals and collectivities where violence had destroyed or badly altered it. It is finding a means for victims and perpetrators to be able to live together; it is to refuse to become trapped in the terrible events of the past just as it is to refuse to forget or deny them.要旨暴力は個人、集団、時にはそれらを超えて社会全体に肉体的・精神的な悪影響を与える。暴力を克服すること、それは暴力そのものの終結を意味するだけでなく、暴力によって破壊または悪変された個人や集団の存在に新たに意味を与えることを可能にする。このことは、被害者と加害者が共に生きることの可能性を示唆し、そうすることで、過去の惨事に囚われ続けることなく、しかしそれを忘れることも、否定することもないのである。

  • Réflexions sur l’unité lexicale ‘sujet’ en français contemporain
           / Reflections on the Lexical Item ‘Sujet’ in Contemporary French

    • Authors: Daniel LEBAUD
      Abstract: From a reading of Michel Wieviorka and in particular his use of the termssujet (subject) and individu (individual), and from an analysis of the uses of the lexical unit sujet in contemporary French - in various disciplinary fields as well as in ordinary speech - this paper aims first of all to examine the specific properties of the term sujet in language, and secondly to attempt a general hypothesis on its function. It would appear from this study that sujetand individu have radically different properties which are to be articulated: a subject is an individual qualified in relation to a term or a notion X of which it operates the actualization. Consequently, the category sujet can neither be integrated into the category individu nor be separated from it.要旨本稿は「主体 (sujet) 」に関する言語学的考察を行うことを目的としている。ミッシェル・ヴィヴィオルカがその著書の中で使用する「主体 (sujet) 」と「個人 (individu) 」という用語と、現代フランス語において様々な分野で多様に用いられる「主体 (sujet) 」という語彙の意味分析に基づき、その注目すべき特徴を引き出し、機能の一般的仮説を述べる。本稿の最後では「主体」と「個人」には根本的な違いがあることを明らかにする 。「主体」とは X という概念あるいは言葉へと関係づけられ、それを実現する「個人」 のことである。「主体」と「個人」は互いに完全に組み入れることも、切り離すこともできない関係にある。

  • Art and Culture: Memories from the Past Royal Monarchy of France

    • Authors: Margareta KASTBERG SJÖBLOM
      Abstract: This article focuses on the analysis of textual data and the extraction of lexical semantics. The techniques provided by different lexical statistics tools, such as Hyperbase (Brunet), today open the door to many avenues of research in the field of corpus linguistics, including reconstructing the major semantic themes of a textual corpus in a systematic way, thanks to a computer-assisted semantic extraction.The object used as a testing ground is a corpus made up by a patrimonial corpus which includes the entire repertoire of the first generation of French Opera librettos performed at the Royal Music Academy at the Palais Royal.The aim of the contribution is to show how an artistic genre can be a bearer of a political message and a vehicle for its propaganda.要旨本稿では原文のデータ分析および語彙の意味論の抽出について注目し、分析をすすめる。異なる語彙統計ツールから得られたハイパーベースなどの手法は、コーパス言語学(原文の集成による主要な意味的テーマを体系的な方法で再構成することを含む)の分野において、今日様々な研究の可能性を切り開きつつある。テスト調査に使用されたデータは 、 フランス王室の王室音楽学校で実演された初代フランスオペラ歌詞のレパートリーより作成されたコーパスである。本稿の目的は、いかなる芸術的ジャンルが政治的メッセージの発信の担い手となり、政治的プロパガンダの媒体となり得るのかを明らかにすることである。

  • Diffusion of Japanese Sports Anime in France: Assessment and Review of

    • Authors: Sébastien LAFFAGE-COSNIER, Rie INABA
      Abstract: In the late 1980s and during the 1990s, in France, Japanese sports-themed animated films were very popular among French children, to such an extent that French youth enrolments in certain sports clubs significantly increased. This phenomenon occurred in spite of the substantial differences between Japanese and French sport cultures; for example in Japan, sports are considered as a way of practicing discipline, while in France it is viewed as a recreational activity. This article examines our quantitative analysis of sports-themed animated films produced in Japan and assesses the impact of these animated films broadcast in France. Further, we will evaluate previous works on this topic with the aim of proposing new approaches for future academic projects.要旨1980 年代後半から 1990 年代にかけて、フランスでは日本のスポーツアニメが子供たちの間で絶大な人気を博した。しかし、日本とフランスでは異なる スポーツ文化の価値観を有しており、例えば、日本では部活に代表されるような「精神鍛錬」の要素を含むのに対し、フランスでは「娯楽活動」の一環としてスポーツを楽しむ。日本とフランスのスポーツ文化にはこのような対立構図がとられるにも関わらず、またスポーツアニメにはこうした日本独自のスポーツ文化・イデオロギーが色濃く反映されているにも関わらず、フランスで日本のスポーツアニメが受け入れられ人気を博したのはなぜか。本稿は、身体を拠り所にした日本の文化が異文化として伝播した際、どのように解釈され変容していくのかを分析する日仏共同研究プロジェクトの端緒となるものであり、先行研究を再検討するとともに、新たな研究アプローチの提案を試みる。

  • What Does It Mean to Replace Ecology with Mesology and Resources with

    • Authors: Corine PELLUCHON
      Abstract: After having explored what is at stake in Berque’s efforts to overcome the pitfalls of a Western paradigm characterized by dualism between nature and culture and the conception of a substantial and abstract subject, I will show to what extent his notions of mesology and mediance help us think through the ecological crisis which cannot be reduced to issues such as global warming and the depletion of resources, but which concerns our perception of ourselves, our relationships with others and the meaning of our temporary stay on earth.The replacement of ecology by mesology leads to my own approach which is to make interaction with nature and other beings a chapter of a philosophy of existence that takes into account the materiality of our life, that is to say the fact that we live in and depend upon natural and cultural things such as water, food, river, trees, but also landscapes and towns. This phenomenology of nourishment highlights the corporality of the subject and insists upon the dimension of pleasure and enjoyment. The phenomenological description of eating, dwelling, walking, living in a place and being co-resident with other human and non-human existences, breathes new life into the concept of human existence. I shall further outline the political consequences of this phenomenology.要旨ベルクの研究は、 自然と文化および実体と抽象の概念という西洋の2分法をいかに乗り越えるかという課題に取り組むことであった。 ベルクの提唱するメゾロジー(風土論)とメディアンス(風土性)は、現代のエコロジー に新たな光を照射した。地球温暖化や資源枯渇問題に限定するのではなく、我々の知覚、他者との関係、地球に住まうことの意味をも含めて包括的に論じるのである。エコロジー(環境)をメゾロジー(風土)と捉えることにより、自然と他の存在物の相互関係を、新たな視点に立って、存在論的に論じることが可能となった。我々は実際に水、食料、河川、樹木、さらには風景、都市のような自然と文化の造形物の中で、ともに生活をしているのである。食物をめぐる現象は主体の身体性に結びついており、快楽と歓びと深く関わる。食、住、歩行、人々との暮らし等の現象の記述は、人間存在の概念に新たな生命を吹き込むのである。さらに本論ではこれらの現象の政治的側面についても論じる。

  • Construction of a Creole Identity in Cabo Verde: Insights from
           ‘Morna’, a Traditional Form of Music

    • Authors: Kay AOKI
      Abstract: Morna is a traditional music of Cabo Verde. It was created in the context of colonialism, where Whites, Blacks and creoles, the children of Whites and Blacks born in Cabo Verde, lived. With emancipation from slavery, the people of Cabo Verde began to build their own identity: a creole identity. In order to establish their independence from Portugal, poets and musicians used morna to unify the people of Cabo Verde.This research paper will address the specific case of the evolution of morna by analysing morna lyrics diachronically to clarify the importance of ‘creoleness’ in the creation of a unique Cabo Verde identity.要旨モルナはカーボ・ヴェルデの伝統音楽であり、歌謡である。モルナは植民地支配において形成された文化であり、当時の社会に属していた白人や黒人、そしてクレオールの人々(白人・黒人の間に生まれた混血の子供)が影響したことで生成した。奴隷制度が廃止され、カーボ・ヴェルデの人々は自らのアイデンティティ、すなわちクレオール・アイデンティティを創出することを試みた。カーボ・ヴェルデがポルトガル帝国から独立を果たし、島民が団結し、統合するために詩人や音楽家はモルナを用いた。本研究は、モルナの歌詞を通時的に分析することで、カーボ・ヴェルデにおける「クレオール性」についての理解を深めるための手がかりを示す。

  • An Approach to a Cultural Constant as Seen in the ‘Tensho’
           Karate Kata

    • Authors: Jérémie BRIDE
      Abstract: As cultural heritage from Japan (Okinawa), karate conveys not only body forms (or corporal shapes) of its culture of origin; it also gives insight into deeper cultural concepts. The use of time and space and a particular rhythmicity can be analysed in the practice of karate kata, and particularly in theTensho kata.This analysis is supported here by an anthropo-didactic study that highlights the pervasive cultural dimension of this kata in relation to the practice of other Japanese art forms, and even posits it as an overarching principle of Japanese culture. For this purpose,a parallel between the musicology of traditional Japanese music and the Tenshokarate kata is discussed here.要旨日本の、厳密にいうならば沖縄の文化遺産としての空手は、伝統的な身体的な型だけではなく、より深い文化概念について知ることができる。空手における時間や空間、独特なリズムの使い方は空手の型を通じて分析が可能であり、特に 転掌 型においてそれは顕著にあらわれる。この観点は、空手の型と他の日本芸術との共通性に注目する人類学的研究にも基づくものであり、それは日本文化の超越性をも視野に入れるものである。したがって、本稿では伝統日本音楽と空手の 転掌 型の類似点について注目し、考察を進めていきたい。
