LA PLACE DU REGISTRE FAMILIER EN CLASSE DE FLE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

When we learn a language, we learn more than a code, rules and series of words, but also a way to be and a culture. All these languages have several levels, but all have a different relation to it. In the case of french, we can speak about two levels: formal speech and informal speech. In this abstract, we will discuss about the caracteristics of both speeches, why and how the french teacher must use them in class.

IDENTITÉ CULTURELLE PAR DES ELEMENTS DE PATRIMOINE ALIMENTAIRE RÉGIONAL

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

Our research focuses on an approach to cultural identity through food practices. As anthropology and ethnology prove, food contributes to the cultural definition of humanity. Food has an important function of cultural mediation, representing a code for the expression of cultural identity. The images comprising the food code form part of the dialectic identity-alterity. On the one hand, they express a look at tradition, towards identification with the group of belonging. On the other hand, the food practices express a differentiation with respect to the signs of the alterity. Some elements concerning food and food practices are included in UNESCO …


IMAGES ARCHETYPALES ET SYMBOLES DU PRIMORDIUM DANS LES PROSES DE MICHEL TOURNIER

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

Our work aims to analyse several archetypal images and symbols specific to primordiality, as they are updated in the mythological inspirational prose of Michel Tournier. In our analytical approach, we will use the instruments of mitocracy and myth analysis. Starting from Tournier’s texts and the myths of Paradise and the Golden Age, we identified these archetypes and archetypal images related to Primordium: Chaos, Transcendence, Paradise, Androgynous, primordial couple. The number of symbols that updates these invariants is impressive but our analysis focuses on the following elements: forest, darkness, night, primordial waters, fire, island, rain, bird, butterfly, mountain.


GLOBALISME SERAIT-IL UNE DEMOCRATIE TOTALITAIRE ?

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

Jean-Christophe Rufin’s novel entitled Globalia is one of the examples of dystopian novels about French politics published in the first decade of the XXIth century. Jean-Christophe Rufin, who is known for his novels generally classified in the genre of the historical novel, has integrated the features of historical novel into the social dystopian novel in Globalia. Jean-Christophe Rufin had worked as a doctor for long years in the Red Cross, in the United Nations and in the Doctors Without Borders and went to several poor countries such as Eritrea, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Kosovo and Mongolia.

L’ESPRIT UTOPIQUE COMME DIMENSION DE L’HOMME COMPLET. PLAIDOIRIE POUR UNE TRANSCENDANCE PROFANE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

In his famous essay, The One-Dimensional Man, Herbert Marcuse spoke of the most frequent form of alienation typical of the « late capitalism »: the atrophy of one of the two dimensions of a fully humanized human being: the capacity to imagine an alternative reality which transcends what is given and presents itself as a project of a better and shinier reality, of a more inhabitable world. If contemporary man confines himself to the other dimension, i.e. the capacity to adapt to the existing reality, he gets closer to animalism than to humanity. The consumer society nourishes the need for …


MAIS ET DISCOURS IMAGINAIRE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The discourse connector mais is frequently used in the argumentative discourse: it may direct the interpretation towards implicit conclusions and is based on implicit premises. The conclusions are supported by a relation of contradiction that is established at the utterance level and manifests itself when the utterance is produced. The inferences we will observe are possible due to the interpreting instructions this connector contains. A particular situation – which we can observe in the present-day political discourse – appears when mais introduces an utterance that becomes an imaginary reply to a previous discourse.


LES INTERPRÉTATIONS DES MONDES POSSIBLES

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The real world in which we live is accessible to us by a multitude of images or descriptions of the states; in this world, one plus one is two. Cicero was a great orator, Bucharest is the capital of Romania, Cinderella did not really exist, it was only a character of a fairy tale. The concept of “possible worlds” has its origin in Leibnizian philosophy; this theory has also been valued in semantics (Kaarlo Ja¬akko Hintikka, Peter Frederik Strawson, Hilary Putnam at al.) as the universe of language discourse. A possible world is a general and abstract mental representation, a …


VOYAGE DE REVE, REVE DU PARADIS DANS LE VOYAGE DE SAINT BRENDAN, MANUSCRIT DES IXe –Xe SIECLES

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The Journey of Saint Brendan is a text of the IXth century, taken back the next centuries, and which lends itself to multiple analyses. In the pages below, I shall isolate the most significant authorities of this journey, from the point of view of the Christian symbolism, because we talk about a journey towards the Paradise. The messengers, the food, the support, the running water, softer than the sweet wine, the whale, the magic birds form a dream world which contributes to the creation of a particular Paradise.


RÊVES, VISIONS ET APPARITIONS DANS LES RÉCITS HAGIOGRAPHIQUES DE LANGUE FRANÇAISE : ÉTUDE LEXICALE ET DISCURSIVE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The article focuses on a discursive analysis of the hagiographic texts written in French. It investigates the lexical relation among four terms : dream, vision, dream apparition, and relics discovery. It purports to offer a semantic and lexical analysis of these terms, the lexical phrases belonging to the same word family, as well as the discursive consequences their use has on the text structure of this specific literary genre, i.e. hagiographic text.


LIRE OU RÊVER LES YEUX OUVERTS. LA VISION PROUSTIENNE DE LA LECTURE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

In approaching Bachelard’s conception of daydreaming and the principles that underlie the Proustian vision on reading and readership, we propose the identification and investigation of the points of contact between the act of reading and the one of dreaming. In closely analysing these two acts, we realise that they share both the withdrawal into oneself and the opening towards the others, which occur almost simultaneously in the spirit of the reader/awakened dreamer, transporting him into an imaginary time and space.


CORPS FANTASME ET SOCIETE DANS LA METAMORPHOSE DE FRANZ KAFKA

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The Metamorphosis provides one the most disconcerting examples of Franz Kafka’s vision of the human existence. For Kafka, the human condition is absurd and man fully feels the existential misfortune in the labyrinth of a reality that escapes him. Kafka’s work had a major influence on the twentieth century’s literature, notably on the theater of the fifties, by the alienating view that makes beings strange and alien to themselves, separated from their essence, and in constant search for the meaning of existence. This alienating vision of the individual that wanders aimlessly in an incoherent, labyrinthine, and meaningless world can also …


DE L’EFFRACTION DU RÊVE DANS LA RÉALITÉ : TROIS CONJECTURES SUR LE RÊVE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

More than one thousand years ago in France, « dreaming » and « going insane » had the same radical « esver » that expressed the meanderness of our minds. The elders seemed to have seen a correlation that today in modern French seems lost. We will look at a semiology of the dreamer’s conditions and their similarities with certain mental disorders. We will thus sketch the idea of a nosology of the dream. We propose three conjectures: the mechanisms of certain psychiatric disorders are identical with the state of the dreamer within his dream; the dream precedes reality in …
