L'origine come materia comune

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Origin Seen as Common MatterTwentieth-century theories of form and organic form show a hard ten- sion between the idea of the origin as appropriative dynamics – in which the dynamic element refers to a metaphysics of force, and the form-centring is just defined as appropriation – and the idea of the origin as a ‘common matter’. The essay explains these two theoretical options discussing these opposite polarities in biology and analysing some cinematic examples taken from Ejzenštejn’s thought on Disney’s Silly Symphonies.
