By Jean Dubuffet

Period il 1968 quando apparve Asfissiante cultura. I tempi erano maturi in keeping with un testo violento e ribelle. L'accoglienza fu calorosa, da una parte, e ovviamente scandalizzata, dall'altra. In ogni caso, fornì non pochi spunti di dibattito.
Il libro di Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) è infatti ricchissimo di argomenti fondamentali in step with l'arte contemporanea. L'autore più celebre dell'Art Brut fa piazza pulita dei luoghi comuni del mondo culturale e pone l'esigenza di una «rinascita», di un nuovo modo di fare arte al di là della verbosità critica e del conformismo mercantile.
Dubuffet rivendica l. a. necessità dell'immediatezza individualista, della «sregolatezza» creativa dell'artista, contrapponendole alla normatività regolatrice e castrante della società culturale, ossia a un atteggiamento autoritario e gerarchico che riduce tutto a codici, canoni, ascendenze, influenze, regole interpretative. Da una parte, dunque, l'artista sovversivo e anarchico e, dell'altra, l. a. società omogeneizzante e repressiva. È l'eterna sfida dell'artista d'avanguardia nei confronti della società. In questo, Asfissiante cultura è un piccolo classico del Novecento.

Causality can only be attributed to electrical and chemical forces. The Self Is Also an Illusion The current view in neuroscience is that all of what the brain constructs is an illusion. Illusion has been defined as a false appearance, a belief that does not have correlates in the physical world. We see a red rose and inhale its fragrance, but the color red does not exist in the physical world, nor does its fragrance. Colors and odors are the brain’s constructions. What exists in the physical world are only packets of energy, photons of varying wavelengths; there are no odors, only chemicals.
