Tesis sobre el autoengaño

La tesis de Robert Trivers sobre el autoengaño, en sustancia: que nos engañamos a nosotros mismos, con la finalidad de así poder engañar mejor a los otros. (En su libro The Folly of Fools: The Logic of Deceit and Self-deception in Human life).

Retrospection

Retrospection


retrospection |,retrə'spek sh ən |
miramar
noun
the action of looking back on or reviewing past events or situations, esp. those in one's own life : he was disinclined to indulge in retrospection.
ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: probably from retrospect (used as a verb).


Inauguro un recopilatorio de noticias en Scoop.it, sobre el tema de la retrospección: RETROSPECTION (en http://www.scoop.it/t/retrospection ) Scoop.it es un agregador de noticias que genera revistas electrónicas personalizadas. Tú seleccionas un tema, la web te busca y sugiere noticias que contengan tus términos, y tú las cribas para publicarlas en una página web o eJournal temático dedicado al tema elegido. Y, presto, ya tienes una revista online editada, o todas las que quieras o des abasto a seguir. Veremos qué juego da la cosa; de momento parece un recopilatorio de productos de Amazon - pero no subestimen a Amazon como difusor de información. También puede ir al Facebook todo lo que cuelgues, pero no sé si me anime a inundar mi página con estos enlaces.

Lo que iré poniendo en RETROSPECTION lo defino como “Perspectives on narrative theory, hindsight, hindsight bias, and the dynamics of narrativity”. Sobre la retrospección he ido publicando artículos estos últimos años, muchos de ellos recopilados en esta página: Objects in the Rearview Mirror May Appear More Solid ThanThey Are: Retrospective / Retroactive Narrative Dynamics in Criticism.

La última sentencia de Garzón


Aquí hay un debate sobre la última sentencia del caso Garzón, la que lo absuelve con apaños por la investigación de los crímenes del franquismo.

Muy suaves veo con el tratamiento del caso a los contertulios. A mí esta sentencia me parece una lección de escándalo, como todas las que vienen dando el Tribunal Supremo y el Tribunal Constitucional. La lección es útil, sin embargo: que ni hay justicia ni hay ley, y que las decisiones de los tribunales se toman por la conjunción de fuerzas que hagan la política con el corporativismo, el amiguismo, el miedo y la dirección en que sople viento.

Total, que Garzón prevaricó, pero que como le pararon los pies en instancias superiores, no hay delito. Así que no lo condenan por prevaricación. Chúpense esa como argumentario judicial. Lo que digo, una lección en letras de neón para quien la quiera leer. Cada una de las sentencias del caso Garzón, incluida la que lo expulsa de la carrera judicial, pero sobre todo las que lo absuelven, es una lección de despropósitos y una demostración de lo arbitrario de los procesos judiciales en España. La lógica, la ley y la razón no pesan nada: únicamente el poder, que te faculta para abusar de él y atropellar lo que convenga, mientras tengas apoyo de tus inter pares y del círculo de observación mutua. Como siempre en una atmósfera corrupta, son los votos particulares los más ilustrativos sobre la verdad de la situación. Así sucede aquí con el voto particular del juez Maza, que no ha querido que su nombre figurase al pie del infecto pastel.

Mientras, Garzón está en Seattle, cabalgando, en una cátedra con su nombre que le han creado allí, donde el orden judicial español se la trae floja, y donde más que la ley les interesa al parecer el simulacro y el oportunismo político. Como en el Tribunal Supremo, vamos.

Una cosa te voy a decir


"Una cosa te voy a decir" es un marcador discursivo, que sirve (al menos en sus usos más frecuentes) para posicionar interaccionalmente al hablante frente al interlocutor, y para demarcar un posicionamiento distinto, o una identidad interaccional diferente de la que venía rigiendo el diálogo hasta ese momento. Puede señalar un mero cambio de tema, pero es frecuente que el cambio de tema venga asociado a un rol social diferente del hablante frente al alocutor: lo que Goffman, en Forms of Talk, llama una diferencia de footing, es decir, de acreditación o posicionamiento interaccional, de "a título de qué" estamos hablando. Por ejemplo, dos conocidos pueden estar hablando de fútbol, y aunque sean capataz y empleado, a un determinado nivel están en ese momento tratando con sus identidades respectivas de "hombres en momento de ocio", hablando con un conocido de un tema poco comprometido (para eso está el fútbol, para dar pie o footing a un trato social neutro o fuera por así decirlo de otros roles sociales, aunque todo es un rol social, y el fútbol reafirma el posicionamiento mutuo en la masculinidad). Si uno de ellos dice, "Oye, una cosa te voy a decir. La partida esa que llevaba retraso, etc., etc.", usa el marcador discursivo no sólo para organizar una transición temática en el discurso, y facilitar la comprensión, lanzando al oyente un aviso de que ahora el tema no es "fútbol" sino "trabajo"; también le lanza un aviso de que quien habla ya no es exactamente la persona que venía hablando hasta ahora, que ha adoptado otro rol social, y que el interlocutor debe estar listo para reorganizar su identidad y adoptar el rol correspondiente. Es un buen ejemplo para estudiar las micromoculaciones de roles e identidades en el discurso; muchas veces el cambio de rol que se espera es mínimo, quizá sólo se trate de marcar la afiliación de grupo, o de organizar la distribución de información, como en este caso: "Una cosa te voy a decir, esto que acabamos de hablar no se lo cuentes a Pepito". Sería útil que los estudiantes de lengua hiciesen ejercicios de análisis conversacionales pragmáticos, señalando no tanto el sujeto y el predicado y el objeto directo, cuanto las organizaciones de temas e identidades de los hablantes como marcos estructuradores del discurso, y también el papel de estos marcadores discursivos. "Una cosa te voy a decir" podría parecer una enunciación semánticamente redundante, interpretada literalmente; y a otro nivel de análisis  es una oración con sujeto, predicado y objeto. Pero estos niveles de análisis no nos muestran su auténtica función—pues este marcador funciona como una unidad simple a la hora de delimitar una reorganización del tema y de reorientar los roles interaccionales, y las identidades, asociados a él.

Exclusión social

Exclusión social by JoseAngelGarciaLanda
Exclusión social, a photo by JoseAngelGarciaLanda on Flickr.

Carteles de unas jornadas que organizan en mi facultad, con mucha conciencia de izquierdas anarquista y demás, y apoyo oficial de la Universidad.

Se pregunta uno por qué excluiran socialmente al tipo éste de la motosierra ensangrentada. La sociedad es injusta, sin duda.

Yo creo que en esta ocasión a la cartelería progre se le ha ido la pinza un poco más de lo habitual.

Obviando el 11-M

martes 28 de febrero de 2012

Obviando el 11-M

 

Ahora que han encontrado uno de los vagones del 11-M, de los supuestamente destruidos, no se va alterar nada el caso, descuiden.

 

 Algunos hechos para extrañarse, o escandalizarse:

-En ningún momento de esta causa ha extrañado a ninguno de los juzgadores la destrucción de los trenes, ni han procurado investigar ni a los que la han ordenado, ni a los que no la han investigado. Con la excepción de la juez Coro Cillán, a la que le han cerrado el sumario por orden de la superioridad.

- 150.000 folios de sumario en el juicio del Supremo, y ni una mención allí de este tren de Santa Eugenia que se conservó.


- Toneladas de trenes destruidos, y kilos y kilos de efectos personales, y todo desaparece, la policía científica no recibe ninguna muestra para analizar, más que unos tornillos lavados, años después— Y nadie es detenido ni se hace causa judicial de esto. Quienes no la hacen, ascienden.


- No se hicieron las autopsias de los Suicidados de Leganés. Inaudito. Pero a los jueces no les extrañó.


- Y no se abrió causa contra el único inquilino del piso aquél que salió mientras lo vigilaba la policía.


- Ha habido un celo activo por parte del PSOE, del ministerio a la fiscalía y a los tentáculos judiciales, para impedir que se investigue la cuestión de la destrucción y falsificación de pruebas.
 
- Ha habido un desinterés activo y creciente del PP por investigar la cuestión de la destrucción y falsificación de pruebas.

- Gallardón, ahora ministro de justicia (puesto al que llega teniendo en su haber como recomendación el dejar abierto un agujero financiero de escándalo en Madrid), siendo entonces alcalde de Madrid, se ha negado siempre a recibir a las víctimas que piden una investigación del caso, y recomendó "obviar el 11-M" y no investigar la cuestión.  


- Una serie de jueces han ido cerrando diligentemente y con razonamientos técnicos más que dudosos todas las causas abiertas por donde pudiera llegarse a investigar algún asunto relativo a la implicación de los servicios secretos del Estado.


- El nuevo Fiscal General del Estado Torres Dulce parece que va a aplicar la ceguera-sordera-mudez selectiva que viene caracterizando a todos los que pasan por ese puesto, y se va a cuidar muy mucho de pedir que se reabra el sumario. Su predecesor Conde-Pumpido estuvo sentado encima del caso durante años, vigilando que nada se moviese.


- La prensa en general no tiene interés alguno por el asunto del 11-M y sus incoherencias, quitando a El Mundo, y Libertad Digital. No esperen oír nada al respecto en el telediario.
 
- Todos los que han colaborado en la génesis de la versión oficial se han visto prontamente recompensados con medallas y ascensos, y no se han interesado jamás por las incoherencias descubiertas en la versión oficial del asunto.


- La voluntad activa de no investigar sugiere que si no era crimen de estado cuando se produjo, ya lo es ahora, por el encubrimiento deliberado y la ceguera voluntaria a la hora de no investigar la cuestión.

- Y en esta trama, la trama de la ocultación, están implicados tanto el PSOE como el PP como las autoridades judiciales.

Mi padre, hombre sabio, consideraba que un atentado así justo antes de las elecciones era un caso monstruoso de manipulación política, que algún día se llegaría a conocer. Pero que el país estaba atontado y prefería no saber nada. De la gente que conozco, apenas tres o cuatro personas han manifestado algún interés por esta cuestión, o capacidad de extrañeza o de escándalo por la misma. Todos obviando el 11-M, como recomienda el ministro de Justicia.



_____


Declaración de la Asociación de Ayuda a las Víctimas del 11-M:


La AAV11-M quiere compartir con la opinión pública su hartazgo e
indignación por la noticia del hallazgo de uno de los focos de explosión de
los atentados terroristas del 11-M que se encontraba oculto y que nunca se
puso a disposición de la autoridad correspondiente.

Las víctimas nos preguntamos cómo es posible que tras casi 8 años
transcurridos de los atentados nos encontremos con este tipo de
descubrimientos, que dejan en evidencia comportamientos y actitudes que,
por el momento, nos abstendremos de calificar, pero que exigimos sean
investigados y depuradas las responsabilidades hasta sus últimas
consecuencias.

A estas alturas, no es posible permanecer indiferente, pues las posturas
tibias denotan más complicidad con los infractores y presuntos
delincuentes, que apoyo y empatía con las propias víctimas, y con los
deseos generalizados de la opinión pública que siempre hemos sentido tan
cercana.

Por eso, instamos a los poderes públicos y a los partidos políticos, que
dicen representar a los ciudadanos, a actuar de manera firme y decidida y a
situarse con nosotras ante los nuevos hechos que se van conociendo de los
atentados del 11-M. De lo contrario, mucho nos tememos que poco a poco
los ciudadanos no nos podremos sentir representados por dirigentes cuya
sensibilidad y concepto de justicia dista mucho del sentimiento
generalizado de los ciudadanos que se niega a olvidar que “en esos trenes
íbamos todos”

Por eso queremos también manifestar que si en las próximas fechas,
coincidiendo con el VIII aniversario de la masacre, escuchamos de
responsables políticos loas, alabanzas y cariñosas palabras hacia nosotras,
las víctimas preferimos hechos y actuaciones contundentes a ánimos y
gestos cariñosos una vez al año. Porque de no acompañar los hechos a las
intenciones, es preferible que guarden silencio pues es una forma
inequívoca de retratarnos todos, ante todos, y conocer cada uno de nosotros
dónde estamos y con quién podemos contar.

PS, 2 de marzo:

La prensa española ignora estrepitosamente la noticia de Libertad Digital, como un hatajo de vendidos. Sólo una notita despectiva en El Mundo, y un tratamiento decente en TeleMadrid, y un par de webs con huebs. Todos los medios mayoritarios y minoritarios, silencio absoluto.

Ahora bien, tres días más tarde el tres de marzo, anuncia el fiscal general Torres Dulce que ha dado orden de investigar y "judicializar" el asunto si en efecto se trata de una ocultación de pruebas.  Y entonces son cientos los medios que se ocupan de la cuestión, y los partidos hacen declaraciones al respecto, apoyando a la justicia, etc. etc. Televisión Española se da por enterada por fin en el último telediario.

Con una excepción notable: el PSOE hace como que no se entera de la cosa, y, para vergüenza ajena, sus responsables huyen ante las preguntas de qué piensan de este asunto. Como quien ha comido ajos, o más bien como ciertos depredadores nocturnos, cuando les enseñan una ristra de ajos. Por algo será, seguramente.

Me parece que la decisión del Fiscal hay que atribuirla en gran medida al tercer grado al que lo ha sometido Jiménez Losantos desde su programa, en el mismo tono en el que le hablaba a Cándido Conde-Pumpido ("Cándido.... ¡¡¡¡malo!!!"). A Torres-Dulce, antiguo tertuliano de Libertad Digital, le aprieta las tuercas morales el Federico, recordándole a los héroes de John Ford del libro que escribió Torres-Dulce: "Eduardo, ahora eres tú el responsable. Ahora es el momento de demostrar Valor de Ley.... ¡True Grit!"

Ahora que no confío yo nada en que, una vez movida la ficha del Fiscal, la Audiencia Nacional, o el Tribunal Supremo o cualquiera no le eche encima un legajo folios que planche la chatarra del tren, y la oculte para siempre. Es lo que vienen haciendo desde hace años, y no hay por qué pensar que vayan a cambiar.

Verbos copulativos

29 de febrero de 2012

Verbos copulativos

Uno de los capítulos de The Stuff of Thought de Steven Pinker está dedicado a las palabras tabú o malsonantes, y tiene cosas interesantes que decir sobre lo que él llama "verbos copulativos" o verbos sobre relaciones sexuales. fingerhead

El lenguaje educado, para hablar sobre el sexo, lo presenta con construcciones de doble sujeto, y con esquemas semánticos que representan a dos sujetos actuando conjuntamente. En cambio, en los verbos y expresiones malsonantes, las construcciones sintácticas son de sujeto (masculino) y objeto (femenino). Y el sentido figurativo en el que se usan es para representar la explotación de alguien o el daño infligido a alguien o algo: "Me jodieron bien con ese horario", "Le dieron por culo con ese contrato", "se ha jodido el invento". O la falta de control, podríamos añadir: "iba follao". O la humillación y sometimiento públicos: "Le ha tocao bajarse los pantalones"; "A poner el culo."

Concluye Pinker, magistralmente:

"So the syntax of the verbs of sex unconvers two very different mental models of sexuality. The first is reminiscent of sex-education curricula, marriage manuals, and other sanctioned views: Sex is a joint activity, details unspecified, which is mutually engaged in by two equal partners. The second is a darker view, somewhere between mammalian sociobiology and Dworkin-style feminism: Sex is a forceful act, instigated by an active male and impinging on a passive female, exploiting her or damaging her. Both models capture human sexuality in its full range of manifestations, and if language is our guide, the first model is approved for public discourse, while the second is taboo, though widely recognized in private." (356-57)

Traduzco: "Así pues, la sintaxis de los verbos relativos al sexo desvela dos modelos mentales de sexualidad muy diferentes. El primero nos recuerda los programas de educación sexual, los manuales para matrimonios y a otras perspectivas socialmente aprobadas: las relaciones sexuales son una actividad conjunta, con detalles sin especificar, en la cual se implican mutuamente dos personas asociadas en igualdad de condiciones. El segundo ofrece una visión más negra, situada un poco entre la sociobiología de los mamíferos y el feminismo estilo Dworkin: las relaciones sexuales son un acto impuesto a la fuerza, instigado por un macho activo y que afecta a una hembra pasiva, explotándola o dañándola. Ambos modelos cubren entre sí la sexualidad humana en todo el abanico de sus manifestaciones, y si hemos de guiarnos por el lenguaje, el primer modelo está aprobado para el discurso público, mientras que el seguido es tabú, aunque tiene amplio reconocimiento en el ámbito privado".


Siendo así, no es de extrañar que estas expresiones sean, además de malsonantes, inherentemente sexistas, o machistas si se prefiere, aun cuando se usen en un sentido figurado. Es como si revelasen un orden sexual oculto—semioculto más bien—bajo una apariencia hipócrita de corrección política, pues cuando se usan en público, o en privado incluso, rara vez se hace con sentido sexual, sino más bien como representación figurativa. Sin que por ello dejen de tener un sentido sexual, con el inconsciente público de la sexualidad comentado, o caracterizado, en su ser, estar, o parecer. Casi podría decirse que cada vez que empleamos una expresión malsonante de este tipo, reforzamos este reparto imaginario de tareas y de ámbitos, esta curiosa división conceptual de trabajo que se da en las representaciones de la sexualidad, articulando el inconsciente público, públicamente, como tal inconsciente. A mí, particularmente, no sólo no me sale usarlas, sino que me desagradan bastante estas expresiones copulativas que sexualizan la humillación, la violencia o el dominio en su expresión pública, debo ser muy hipócrita.

Borrokas de mierda

1 marzo 2012

 

Esta foto es de los disturbios de ayer de Barcelona, tras la declaración de la vaga en la Universidad—algo que para muchos vagos y maleantes es como el carnaval, pero más divertido como deporte de riesgo para niñatos aburridos. Miles de manifestantes, y entre ellos cientos de delincuentes, bloquearon la Universidad y las calles, asaltaron sucursales bancarias, arrasaron con el mobiliario urbano y atacaron la Bolsa. Aquí sale un pobre oficinista intentando mantener a raya a un siniestro canalla, un fantoche que parece salido de Scream, y que evidentemente está gozando destrozando martillo en mano todo lo que pilla, con la excusa de su altruismo idealista, de su concienciación social y de su mente crítica. A la policía no se la espera, que ofende su existencia; está básicamente para subirles un poco la adrenalina a estos mangutas, y que se crean que son el Che Guevara.


borrokas

Y luego a agitar las manitas como almas puras en señal de pacifismo, los muy falsarios, cuando lo que les va es el mogollón de apoyo mutuo donde se disimulan los más psicópatas, y se les arropa. Y la jodía bandera de la República que no falte, claro, ya la llevan de oficio.

A estos borrokas de mierda es a los que defiende el PSOE cuando se opone a la actuación de la policía. A estos defienden los panolis que van a manifestarse contra la "violencia policial".  Estos son los que supuestamente están defendiendo "la educación pública".  Qué país, qué nube de estupidez espesa le ha aterrizado encima, que parece que no nos vamos a librar ya nunca de ella.

Porvenir retroprospectivo


Uno de los chistes analizados por Freud en El chiste y su relación con lo inconsciente:

"Otro chiste muy conocido de N. nos da un bello ejemplo de condensación con ligera modificación. Hablando de una personalidad política dijo: ’Este hombre tiene UN GRAN PORVENIR DETRAS DE ÉL.’ Tratábase de un joven que por su apellido, educación y cualidades personales pareció durante algún tiempo llamado a llegar a la jefatura de un gran partido político y con ella al gobierno de la nación. Mas las circunstancias cambiaron de repente y el partido de referencia se vio imposibilitado de llegar al poder, siendo sospechable que el hombre predestinado a asumir su jefatura no llegue ya a los altos puestos que se creía. La más breve interpretación deducida de este chiste sería: ’Ese hombre ha tenido ante él un gran porvenir, pero ahora ya no lo tiene’. En lugar de ’ha tenido’ y de la frase final, aparece en la frase principal la modificación de sustituir el ’ante sí’ por su contrario ’detrás de él’."

El chiste tiene más gracia cuando más mayor es uno, pero es humor negro y sarcasmo vuelto sobre uno mismo: porque todos en última instancia nos vemos en la situación del jovenzuelo que tenía un gran porvenir ante él, y ahora sólo lo tiene detrás. Incluso cuando el porvenir ha sido realmente notable.

Los límites del consenso abortista

viernes 2 de marzo de 2012

Los límites del consenso abortista

Excelente, que se haya desatado una polémica por la defensa del infanticidio en medios abortistas. Así veremos hasta dónde llega el bienpensante consenso pro-abortista (en España, "socialista-feminista" mayormente) que tan pocas veces se plantea sus propios límites, como si no los tuviera.

Una noticia al respecto en El Mundo: Polémica por la defensa del infanticidio, y otra en el ABC: Polémica por un artículo que defiende el "aborto postnatal".


(Aquí sin PDFs).

No creo que llegue muy allá la polémica, pero igual a más de uno le sacude el simplismo y el pensamiento casi único con que se trata esta cuestión de "derechos de las mujeres".

El Fiscal General abre la investigación del 11-M

El Fiscal General abre la investigación del 11-M


Una tertulia de Libertad Digital, el medio que localizó las pruebas ocultas, que se ocultaron en los juicios para impedir el análisis de los explosivo. Aquí la noticia de que el Fiscal General del Estado Torres Dulce ha ordenado investigar la cuestión.





Y aquí un comentario de Federico Jiménez Losantos en LD.

Ahora, que para comentario, se comenta a sí mismo El País, con su manera de presentar la noticia:


El fiscal general reabre el bulo del 11-M que ya rechazaron 14 jueces
Torres-Dulce indaga en la chatarra de los trenes por si pudo haber ocultación de pruebas
Ordena que la fiscalía de Madrid investigue basándose solo en una información periodística


A la desesperada.

Y como prueba de que se analizó todo antes de destruirse, remiten al informe de Sánchez Manzano y sus cuatro tornillos con rastros de "dinamita". No comment.

Scoop.it: Retrospection


Una circular que envío a la lista de distribución de AEDEAN:

Estimados compañeros:

He abierto una revista electrónica/blog sobre teoría narrativa y retrospección, que podéis ver aquí:

RETROSPECTION: http://www.scoop.it/t/retrospection

Deseaba, al margen de dároslo a conocer, llamar vuestra atención sobre esta herramienta de creación y comunicación de webs temáticas o revistas, Scoop.it, que he conocido hace poco : pueden crearse con toda facilidad páginas sobre temas tan específicos como se desee, y con un proceso de búsqueda y filtrado de noticias en la red muy cómodo y bien organizado, pueden desarrollarse webs temáticas sobre cualquiera que sea el tema de vuestro interés. Os recomiendo que lo probéis; en su versión estándar es totalmente gratuito.

Un saludo,

Jose Angel García Landa

Y otra a la Narrative-List:

Dear Narrative-L members:

This is just to let you know that I have opened a new thematic blog on narrative theory, with a main focus on retrospection, hindsight and hindsight bias. Ecce:

Retrospection http://www.scoop.it/t/retrospection

I would also like to draw your attention to this electronic publishing website, Scoop.it, which hosts (for free) this blog. It is a really remarkable device to search and aggregate news, websites, publications etc., on any subject you may choose to search and curate, the process is really easy and user-friendly, my "Retrospection" page is just one example.

Well, perhaps someone may use it to start to collect and link all the webs and blogs dealing with narrative theory, although I haven't found so many so far. Although one may note that any tag in a blog related to narrative (or whatever) ALSO generates a thematic blog related to that subject, e.g. the "narratology" tag in my blog Vanity Fea (mostly in Spanish) may be an example:

http://vanityfea.blogspot.com/search/label/Narratolog%C3%ADa

Blogger is also user-friendly! More so than Facebook, if you want to archive and access your files.

Best regards,

Jose Angel Garcia Landa

_________


A list member questions whether these tools are more useful for one's private use, or for general attention—& my answer:


Dear Rafael,

As I see it, it's no either/or - just like a personal "classical" blog, a Scoop.it blog is most useful to the blogger himself, if only because of the frequency of use and attention - but whatever is useful to someone may be useful to people with similar interests. Who knows anything about the staying power of these tools - they may serve a provisional purpose, or some of them may stay around for decades, just like traditional journals. Most will be irrelevant to anyone, including the author, and quickly abandoned; others will gain authority and attention. But it's shifting ground and a hectic moment in communications technology, that's for sure. So I tend to stick to whatever it is I find interesting or amusing or user-friendly or promising... for the time being. Later, who knows, that's one reason why God created hindsight!

Best regards,

JAGL

Philip Rosedale on Second Life




Enfatiza Rosedale la cualidad social de Second Life, una socialidad en un medio virtual que lleva a una experiencia distinta de la información.  Y predice que el futuro de Internet y de las redes sociales se parecerá mucho más a Second Life, hará un uso mucho más radical de entornos sociales virtuales.

Más aún: que llegaremos a preferir nuestras identidades virtuales a nuestro yo "desconectado" (nuestros avatares a nuestros cuerpos por así decirlo)— y que gran parte de las experiencias humanamente significativas tendrán lugar en un entorno virtual. Que estos cambios pueden parecer terroríficos, pero que son inevitables—y que en conjunto sus efectos serán positivos.

Bofetada de la Academia

Bofetada de la Academia


Noticia del ABC: Bofetada de la Academia a las guías de lenguaje no sexista.

"El pleno de la Real Academia Española (RAE) ha aprobado un informe del académico Ignacio Bosque en el que se critican las directrices contenidas en nueve guías sobre lenguaje no sexista elaboradas por comunidades autónomas, sindicatos y universidades, porque, si se aplicara estrictamente cuanto dicen, «no se podría hablar».
 
A los responsables de estas guías les molesta de forma especial el uso genérico del masculino para designar a los dos sexos, a pesar de que «está firmemente asentado en el sistema gramatical español» y de otras muchas lenguas, y recomiendan, por ejemplo, decir «la ciudadanía», en lugar de «todos los ciudadanos»; "las personas becarias», en vez de «los becarios», o «personas sin trabajo» y no «parados»."
 


Aquí puede leerse el informe de Ignacio Bosque sobre "Sexismo lingüístico y visibilidad de la mujer"

 

En la Universidad de Zaragoza teníamos también una guía emitida por el Observatorio para la Igualdad de Género, y un programa ("¡Inténtalo!") que animaba a "Nombrar en femenino". Por cierto que allí también se abogaba por el uso de ese lenguaje genéricamente neutro, y no (como prometía su título) a utilizar el femenino genérico. Así que yo, ateniéndome estrictamente, o más bien propasándome, había hecho la guía docente de la asignatura de "Géneros literarios en la literatura inglesa 1" en femenino genérico:

Recomendaciones para cursar esta asignatura:

Las estudiantes que vayan a cursar esta asignatura deben tener en cuenta que forma parte de la materia Literatura Inglesa, y que deberían haber aprobado las asignaturas de Literatura Inglesa I y II de cursos anteriores, así como el Comentario de Textos Literarios. El nivel de inglés recomendado para cursar esta asignatura es el nivel B2.2, según el Marco Común Europeo de Referencia de las Lenguas (MCERL). Por otra parte, se recomienda que las estudiantes pongan especial énfasis en la lectura de los textos obligatorios que se especifican más adelante en esta guía, y que en la medida de sus posibilidades asistan durante este año académico a funciones teatrales o vean películas asociadas a la materia.   


Sentido, contexto, relevancia y objetivos generales de la asignatura:

El objetivo principal de esta asignatura "Géneros literarios en la literatura inglesa I" es el de proporcionar a las estudiantes conocimientos básicos sobre la literatura dramática inglesa a partir del Renacimiento, así como destrezas para su comprensión y análisis. Por medio de clases tanto teóricas como prácticas (enfocadas al estudio de textos representativos de cada época) se tratará de que las estudiantes adquieran un nivel un nivel adecuado a las exigencias de una asignatura de cursos avanzados de Grado en cuanto a competencia literaria, entendida en este caso como aquello que nos permite comprender la obra dramática como tal, que nos la hace inteligible como objeto artístico y medio de comunicación social dentro de un determinado sistema histórico de motivos, temas, convenciones y géneros literarios y teatrales, y dentro de un contexto de discursos y formas de comunicación sociales y culturales. Al tiempo que se incrementan los conocimientos de la/el estudiante y sus habilidades para comprender y analizar las obras dramáticas de un periodo específico, se pretende mejorar también sus habilidades generales en lo que respecta a la utilización de la lengua inglesa en un contexto académico y crítico.

Presentación metodológica general:

Las asignaturas de la materia “literatura inglesa” en el Grado en Estudios Ingleses y, por tanto, la asignatura concreta sobre la que versa esta guía, constan de una parte teórica y una parte práctica. De acuerdo con esto, habrá clases que se ocupen más específicamente de introducir contenidos de carácter conceptual y teórico, y clases prácticas dedicadas al análisis de las obras literarias incluidas en el programa, haciendo uso de los conocimientos y herramientas necesarios para el comentario de textos (de poemas cortos o fragmentos de obras más extensas, en prosa o verso). Además de formar a la estudiante en un tipo de habilidades y destrezas específicas, las clases prácticas ofrecen a/l/a profesor/a la oportunidad de comprobar si las alumnas han comprendido y asimilado los contenidos expuestos en las lecciones de tipo teórico y, además, si son capaces de explotar esos conocimientos a la hora de interpretar textos concretos.
Como se ha explicado en el apartado anterior, las alumnas/os realizarán dos trabajos en grupo a lo largo del periodo docente, siendo el segundo un trabajo en grupo. La justificación metodológica del trabajo en grupo tiene que ver con la creencia en las posibilidades del “peer learning”, es decir, aprendizaje basado no en la clásica interacción profesor/a-alumna/o, sino en la interacción entre las alumnas/os. Esta interacción —ya se produzca de manera espontánea, ya sea propiciada por la profesor/a— enriquece y diversifica los resultados del proceso de aprendizaje. El trabajo grupal responde al énfasis en la formación autónoma fomentado por el Plan Bolonia, para dar la oportunidad a la alumna/o de reunirse en grupos, discutir sobre un tema, intercambiar ideas, repartir tareas y producir un resultado final que sea parte de su calificación en la asignatura. En todo este proceso, las alumnas/os contarán con la ayuda del profesor/a en tutorías grupales, principalmente orientadas a la supervisión de los trabajos en grupo. El profesor/a también estará disponible en tutorías individuales para guiar el aprendizaje autónomo y resolver dudas y dificultades encontradas por las alumnas
La nota que las alumnas obtengan en la asignatura dependerá tanto de los dos trabajos como de un examen final, es decir, una prueba escrita en la que se valorará el grado de consecución de los objetivos de aprendizaje por parte de cada alumno/a concreto/a. Se entiende que tanto el trabajo individual como el trabajo grupal forman parte del proceso de aprendizaje del estudiante y, además de suponer cada uno un 30% de la nota final de la asignatura, le ayudarán en su formación de cara a la prueba que constituirá otro 40% de la nota. Si bien el trabajo en grupo es importante, también lo es la actuación individual del alumno/a. De ahí que la calificación obtenida por las estudiantes se base, a partes iguales, en la evaluación de la actuación de la estudiante en un grupo de trabajo (30% de la nota final) y en la evaluación de su actuación en un trabajo individual (30%) y en un examen individual (40%).
Puesto que las clases y todas las actividades ligadas a ellas serán en lengua inglesa, es importante que la alumna/o sea consciente de que su nivel de inglés tendrá una influencia directa en todo lo relacionado con la asignatura, desde el seguimiento de las clases hasta la realización de tareas, incluidas aquellas en las que se basará su calificación.

balancing act



Etc. etc.— Siendo que cerca del 90% de la clase son alumnas, y no empleo aquí el femenino genérico, tampoco está tan fuera de lugar, ¿no?  Hay que decir que el progama en cuestión de la Universidad de Zaragoza ya nos costó una mención especial y andanada de cañonazos de Arturo Pérez-Reverte.

La Academia (Pérez-Reverte incluido) sugiere que es prepotente por parte de las feministas el acusar de sexista al uso del masculino genérico. Y que incluso el sostener que ellas son más conscientes de la ideología en el lenguaje "es insostenible, puesto que califica arbitrariamente de sexista al grupo -absolutamente mayoritario- de mujeres y hombres con una sensibilidad diferente". Parece que no se acepta el posible terreno de encuentro, o de desencuentro, consistente en que cada uno utilice los genéricos como mejor le parezca o apetezca, sin que le afeen su conducta por deslenguada (la conducta, digo).

Hugo y la medialepsis

lunes 5 de marzo de 2012

Hugo y la medialepsis

hugo

Hace años le compré a Ivo la novela gráfica La invención de Hugo Cabret de Brian Selznick, y hoy hemos ido a ver su versión filmada por Martin Scorsese; más para mayores nostálgicos que para niños—pero una gran película de homenaje al cine, y al gusto particular de Scorsese por los directores olvidados y los precursores de los tiempos heroicos. Aquí homenajea a Méliès, un alter ego emocional quizá, pues al margen de sus películas pioneras de los efectos especiales fue en su vejez el primer conservador de la cinemateca francesa. Es curioso que este año le haya caído la lluvia de Oscars a esta película y a  The Artist, dos películas "metafílmicas" y con mucho de retro: el cine está de lleno en fase retrospectiva y reflexiva.   Aquí hay una serie de trailers precedidos de un making of, curioso verlo en esta película que va sobre cómo se hicieron las primeras películas. La reseña muy bien Roger Ebert, pinchando en la imagen. Aquí también entramos y salimos de un mundo a otro en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, y la gran película de Internet aún está por hacer—algún día la veremos.

La película es un hervidero de referencias al cine antiguo y una recreación hipnótica del París de hace ochenta años; hasta en sus menores detalles juega con el medio. Por ejemplo, en ese increíble travelling incial, en ese otro travelling que atraviesa una ventana de cristal, en la escena en que Hugo e Isabelle están viendo un libro sobre el cine antiguo, y vemos la foto del autor que e está de pie detrás de ellos, como salido de la foto.

Ví en un vídeo de Internet que el autómata de la película fue construido de verdad—no con efectos digitales, sino un auténtico autómata capaz de dibujar la cara de la luna de la película de Méliès. Ahora lo buscaba, y doy con mil vídeos sobre Hugo, y los oigo de trasfondo mientras escribo esto, se me vuelve a pasar la película por la mente y por el trasfondo del ordenador. También vale la pena observar que en un álbum de cromos que tenía de niño salía Harold Lloyd, "el hombre mosca", en la escena del reloj.

Hoy leía en Codicille, de Gérard Genette, que también viene del París de los años 30 por cierto, sus últimas reflexiones sobre la ruptura de marco o metalepsis como él la llama:

Quizá parezca que le hago demasiado caso, con demasiada frecuencia y demasiado por extenso, e incluyendo allí demasiadas cosas, a lo que no es en principio más que una simple figura de estilo o un truco juguetón de la ficción. Pero resulta que nuestra sociedad descansa en gran medida, y cada vez más, sobre la fascinación que ejerce sobre todos, o casi todos, el paso de la imagen pixelada a la realidad vivida, del "visto en la pantalla" al "vivido en persona", y recíprocamente, claro: los chavales se agolpan a la puerta de un estadio o de una sala de espectáculos, o de un mítin político, y os explican (vía micrófono y cámara) que "sin embargo es mejor verlo en vivo que en la tele", pero su placer de ver "en vivo" a su ídolo supone ("sin embargo") que antes lo hayan viso "en la tele", que hace a las estrellas, y donde se les ve un poco mediatizados a su vez: es un comienzo. La virtualización galopante de nuestra existencia desencadena una especie de metalepsis en bucle, planetaria y recíproca, que ya no me siento apto para describir más, pero que con gusto llamaría, por resumir todo esto con una palabra-quimera, nuestra medialepsis generalizada. La función de los medios de comunicación me parece bastante bien representada, con un poco de adelanto (1922) por este severo dicho de Alfred Fabre-Luce: "La prensa sigue fielmente a la opinión, que a su vez refleja a la prensa. Dos espejos que se reflejan uno a otro no muestran más que el vacío".


El vacío acecha mucho, incluso en una obra tan llena y con tantos planos de profundidad. Y es que la película también es amarga, como Sunset Boulevard, como cualquier película sobre una vieja gloria, más para ancianos que para niños. A pesar del happy end, se ve con cierto escepticismo de a dónde van a parar las ilusiones y los sueños y las cosas que se hacen con tanto cariño y atención. Pocos las aprecian cuando la atención va a otra parte. Méliés sí acabó vendiendo juguetes en un puestecillo de la estación de Montparnasse. Y aunque le dieron la Legión de Honor, no salió de pobre, y los homenajes tardíos sólo en parte, poca, compensan el paso del tiempo. Si es que ni el éxito lo compensa. El tiempo, el tiempo... El cine, y el reloj, y la historia, llevamos el tiempo dentro de la maquinaria del cuerpo.

Face, Sympathy, Deference and Fairness


Notes on the logic of linguistic politeness from Steven Pinker's The Stuff of Thought (chapter "Games People Play").

Touchy, touchy: The logic of Politeness:

"Politeness Theory begins with Erving Goffman's observation that when people interact they constantly worry about maintaining a nebulous yet vital commodity called 'face' (from the idiom 'to save face'). Goffman defined face as a positive social value that a person claims for himself. Brown and Levinson divide it into positive face, the desire to be approved (specifically, that other people want for you what you want for yourself), and negative face, the desire to be unimpeded or autonomous. The terminology, though clumsy, points to a fundamental duality in social life, which has been discovered in many guises and goes by many names: solidarity and status, connection and autonomy, communion and agency, intimacy and power, communal sharing and authority ranking. Later we will see how these wants come from two of the three major social relations in human life.
  Brown and Levinson argue that Grice's Cooperative Principle applies to the maintenance of face as well to the communication of data." (380)


A photo on Flickr

Actually, Goffman defines face as the social identity or value claimed by a person in a specific encounter, not "in general". And in his essay "On Face-work" he argues that sustaining face is a collaborative enterprise, in which all interactants help each other. (When they are not actively mauling each other's face, that is).

"People have to get on with the business of life, and in so doing they have to convey requests and news and complaints. The solution is to make amends with politeness: the speaker sugarcoats his utterances with niceties that reafirm his concern for the hearer or that acknowledge her autonomy. Brown and Levinson call the stratagems positive and negative politeness, but better terms are sympathy and deference" (381).

Pinker explains some mechanisms of politeness, such as respect pronouns and indirect speech acts. And he criticizes Brown and Levinson's approach: "Rather than having a simple face-threat meter in their heads, people tend to target certain kinds of face threat with certain kinds of politeness" (391). There is too much assumption of cooperation between speaker and hearer, not enough recognition  of conflicting aims.

Muddy it up: Vagueness, deniability and other strategies of conflict

Pinker's analysis of an implicated bribe to an officer "shows that indircet speech is not an example of pure cooperation. Implicature Man is manipulating an honest officer's choices to his own advantage and to the officer's disadvantage. It is consistent with the theory by the biologists Richard Dawkins and John Krebs that communication in the animal kingdom can often be a form of manipulation, not just information-sharing" (395).

Political lobbying in the USA is a manipulation of the legislature, influencing it with money, but it's mostly done through implicatures, not with literal bribes.  In bribes or in sexual advances, keeping an offer "off the record" is safer for both parties.

Sharing, Ranking, Trading: Thoughts about Relationships

Communality, first essential type of relationship; it is essential to social animals, although it is vulnerable to greed. Communal meals as a ritual of enhanced community all through the world, "to reinforce the folk-biological intuition that people are made of the same flesh and hence are parts of one bit super-organism" (403).

"Personal boundaries can also be eroded when people undergo an intense emotional experience together, like an ordeal of hunger, terror, or pain, or a drug-induced altered state of consciousness. These cheap tricks are common in inititiation rites all over the world.
    A sense of communality via folk biology can also be reinforced by myths and ideologies. People are told that they descend from a patriarch or a primeval couple, or that they are connected to a natal land, or came into being in the same act of creation, or are related to the same totemic animal. Here is a rule of thumb: Whenever a society (including ours) has a cultural practice that seems bizarre, its members may be manipulating their intuitive biology to enhance feelings of communality" (403)

Close-knit groups (friends, families, clans) do not make explicit the terms of their communality or negotiate them, instead they engage in rituals of solidarity. "The very act of delineating perquisites and obligations in words undermines the nature of the emotional (and in their minds physical) fusion that allows them to share instinctively" (404).

Authority Ranking: the second relationship type, also known as power, status, autonomy, dominance.

"Though visible signs of the ability to prevail in a fistfight are the most salient advertisements of authority, they are not necessarily the qualifications that earned authority in the first place. Dominance in humans is tied up with status: the possession of assets like talent, beauty, intelligence, skill, and wisdom. And in the end, dominance and status are social constructions that depend crucially on the perception of others and of oneself. How much authority you possess depends on how much authority you are prepared to claim, and on how much authority others are willing to cede to you. This, I believe, is the real nature of the concept of 'face' that was bandied around by Brown and Levinson without a satisfying theory, though it was broached now and again by Goffman). Their 'negative face', the desire not to be impeded, is a claim of dominance their 'positive face', which they sometimes defined as a desire for approval or esteem, is a claim of status. (At other times they define it as a desire for sympathy, but I suspect that's a different emotion, more closely tied to communality)." (405)

The question, I think, is that Pinker's analysis does not integrate both directions in a satisfying way, either. Communality and authority, solidarity and power: they are intimately related, and the power one person can claim depends above all on the ties binding the community together. Power comes in many guises, and although physical power is the most basic of them all, its scope is very limited when compared to social power. The power of money is nothing but condensed social power (money being condensed work, work by others "frozen" and encapsulated for the benefit of whoever it is that  has the money). And political power depends of course on complex networks of social solidarity and group commonality. Commonality and authority, then, are two faces of the same coin, which is human sociality.

Third relationship type: Equality Matching (reciprocity, exchange, fairness). Fairness is essential in human societies, and one should note that already in primate societies there have been observations of punishment of free riders or cheats: individuals who punish cheaters gain social acceptance, as being more reliable.

Fiske's taxonomy of social relationships includes a fourth one, Market Pricing. But for Pinker this does not belong to human nature, but to the specific culture of market economies, it is not universal, and it is cognitively unnatural:

"People all over the world think that every object has an intrinsic fair price (as opposed to being worth whatever people are willing to pay for it at any time), that middlemen are parasites (despite the service they render in gathering goods from distant places and making them conveniently available to buyers), and that charging interest is immoral (despite the fact that money is more valuable to people at some times than at others)." (409 - the anti-capitalist fallacies).

"Though Communality, Authority, and Exchange are universal modes in which people conceive of their relationships, cultures differ in which relationship type should be applied to which resource for which kind of dyad in which context" (410).

Diegesis (Narratological Journal)

Diegesis (Narratological journal)

Mensaje de la lista del Centre for Narrative Research:
 
We would like to inform you about the establishment of a narratological
journal:

Starting in October 2012 the new e-journal Diegesis. Interdisziplinäres
E-Journal für Erzählforschung / E-Journal for Narrative Research across the
Disciplines, which is funded by the German Research Funding Organisation
(DFG), is going to be released as an open access publication twice a year.
The first issue is going to be dealing with the topic "Narratology in the
21st Century. An Interdisciplinary Review," whereas the second issue is going
to be concerned with the subject "Narration and Medium".

For both issues we are still in need of reviews of recent publications in the
study field of narrative theory of the last three to four years. These
reviews can be interdisciplinary and do not have to come exclusively from
philological areas. We additionally attach a call for papers for the second
issue to this cover letter. An anonymised peer-review procedure assures the
quality of all articles appearing in DIEGESIS. The international peer
reviewers who congregate in an advisory panel represent a large spectrum of
more than twenty subjects.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to authors who might be interested in
writing a review or an article. Proposals (with regard to reviews in terms of
simply naming the title of the publication; with regard to articles in terms
of a short abstract of not more than 800 characters and in both cases with
brief information on the academic curriculum vitae) can be sent to the
editorial team, that is to Dr. Matthias Aumüller (aumueller@uni-wuppertal.de)
and Dr. Filippo Smerilli (smerilli@uni-wuppertal.de).

The journal is published at the University of Wuppertal and in cooperation
with the local Centre of Narrative Research (CNR) (www.zef.uni-wuppertal.de
) by the professors Matei Chihaia (Romance
studies), Matías Martínez (German studies), Michael Scheffel (general
literary studies) and Roy Sommer (English and American studies).

With kind regards from Wuppertal,

Matthias Aumüller and Filippo Smerilli

Álvaro en la entrega de premios

6 de marzo de 2012


Aquí van llegando las fotos. Álvaro ha sido el ganador de la fase regional (Aragón, Navarra y La Rioja) de la III Olimpiada Española de Geología. Aquí sale en el acto de entrega de premios de esta olimpiada y de la biológica, en el Patio de la Infanta. Ahora pasa a la fase nacional, que será esta primavera en Santander.  Como va a estudiar Geológicas, ¡empieza la carrera con buen pie!  Bravo, Alvarillo. Esto no lo hacía yo a sus años, que son diecisiete.

Por cierto, hoy cumple Ivo 13. Álvaro se ha chafado el cheque del premio en un tablet o similar de última o futura generación, y está flipando con él. A iVo le ha regalado su iPod tuneado a lo retrofuturista-steampunk, buen regalo vive Dios.  Y yo a Ivo le regalo un libro de Dawkins, The Magic of Reality.

EL CHICO (The Kid)
País: EEUU Año: 1921 Duración: 68 min. B/N
Dirección y guión: Charles Chaplin.
Fotografía: R.H. Totheroh.
Dirección artística: Charles D. Hall.
Montaje: Charles Chaplin (sin acreditar).
Intérpretes: Charles Chaplin, Jackie Coogan, Edna Purviance, Carl Miller, Tom Wilson, Henry Bergman, Lita Grey. 

Información de la web de la Universidad:
  Sinopsis: Una mujer londinense, sumamente pobre, se ve en la necesidad de abandonar a su hijo en una casa de millonarios, aunque por una serie de circunstancias el niño terminará siendo cuidado por un vagabundo que se convierte así en su padre. Cinco años después, y con la madre convertida en una popular cantante, el destino tratará de separarlos...
Primer largometraje y primer film mayor del realizador Charles Chaplin (Londres/RU 1889 – Suiza 1977). El guión, del propio Chaplin, combina ficción y elementos de carácter autobiográfico, que hacen de éste el que muchos consideran su trabajo más personal. Se rueda, entre el 30-VII-1919 y agosto de 1920, en escenarios reales de L.A. (Olvera Street) y Pasadena (Colorado Street Bridge) y en los platós de Chaplin Studios (Hollywood, L.A.). Producido por Charles Chaplin para Chaplin Productions y First Internacional, se proyecta por primera vez en público, en sesión de preestreno, el 21-I-1921 (NYC).
La acción dramática tiene lugar en Londres en dos momentos: 1915 y 1919/20. Una joven madre soltera, pobre y sola, abandonada y olvidada por su compañero y sin ayudas familiares, da a luz un niño en el Hospital de Caridad de la ciudad. En un momento de desesperación, lo abandona en el interior del Rolls Royce (modelo Silver Ghost) de una familia multimillonaria, pero el destino decide que lo recoja un vagabundo, que se convierte en su padre adoptivo. Éste, de unos 25 años, es de buen corazón, soñador, melancólico, pillo y tramposo. Tiene problemas constantes con la policía y sobrevive gracias a los trabajos marginales que le proporciona su condición de pícaro. El chico, de 5 años, es vivaracho, desenvuelto, listo y cariñoso. Se convierte en un firme apoyo del padre en las tareas de la casa y en el trabajo.
El film suma comedia, drama, pobreza, familia y cine mudo. Técnicamente es un largometraje, de acuerdo con la definición en vigor de la Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas (EEUU), el American Film Institut (EEUU) y el British Film Institut (RU), ya que su duración es superior a 45 minutos. Contiene un fondo autobiográfico importante, que recoge recuerdos de infancia del autor, como la situación de pobreza familiar, su separación forzada de la madre, la dura experiencia de dos años de reclusión en un asilo para niños, etc. Le impulsa a escribirlo la frustración que le produce el fallecimiento (10-VII-1919) de su primer hijo, Norman Spencer, nacido 3 días antes con malformaciones genéticas. El 30-VII-1919 inicia el rodaje del film, movido por un afán de perfeccionismo que le lleva a repetir una y otra vez las escenas, hasta totalizar un promedio de 53 tomas por cada una de las seleccionadas y montadas en la cinta.
El relato es sencillo, como un cuento de hadas, y desborda ternura y cariño. El resultado es una obra entretenida, conmovedora, cautivadora e inolvidable. No es el mejor trabajo de Chaplin, pero es una de sus grandes películas. Consigue un nivel extraordinario de intensidad emocional sin caer en sentimentalismos vacíos, vanos y superficiales. Combina sabiamente humanismo y lirismo, comedia y drama, humor y melancolía. Es una de las más bellas películas sobre la infancia y, al mismo tiempo, es una hermosa película sobre la paternidad, la familia y la educación.
El guión evita el pintoresquismo de la pobreza y de sus manifestaciones, para buscar la veracidad, la sinceridad y la transparencia. Deseos de libertad, honestidad, independencia, justicia y cambio, animan el trabajo del realizador. Al amparo de estos deseos, denuncia las diferencias sociales, el contraste entre quienes lo tienen todo y los que tienen poco o no tienen nada, los dormitorios sociales (de pago) para los sin techo, la mendicidad, la escasez y la mala calidad de los servicios sociales y de los servicios públicos de sanidad, limpieza y otros en los barrios pobres, el rigorismo y la ausencia de sentido humanitario de las instituciones asistenciales, como el Hospital de Caridad para enfermos y parteras sin recursos, concebido como un centro cerrado con vallas y rejas, a la manera de prisión.

En 1971 Chaplin decide hacer un nuevo montaje del film, al que añade una banda sonora de nueva creación y autoría propia. Suprime varias escenas, con lo que reduce el protagonismo de la madre, pero mejora la solidez del conjunto, evita digresiones innecesarias y eleva la dignidad de la figura materna. Las escenas suprimidas son el encuentro de la madre con una pareja de recién casados, el encuentro casual con un antiguo amante y la escena rodada en Colorado Street Bridge. El film guarda relación con el realismo de Dickens (1812-70), su David Copperfield (1848-49) y su afición por la infancia.
Es de gran interés el análisis que establece de la relación entre el padre y el hijo. Más allá del tratamiento humorístico, el padre trata al pequeño con afecto, amor, respeto y reconocimiento de su dignidad como igual (se reparten a partes iguales la comida). La interpretación de Chaplin es magistral y es soberbia la del niño Jackie Coogan (1914-84), que tenía grandes aptitudes imitativas y reproducía a la perfección los movimientos y la gestualidad que le enseñaba el realizador. El film eleva a Chaplin a la categoría de los grandes cineastas del momento y lo convierte en uno de los más acreditados y famosos.

La banda sonora, de Charles Chaplin, para orquesta completa, ofrece un tema de amor, que es el tema principal. Añade ritmos de fox, fox-trot y marchas, que aportan dinamismo y gracia. La fotografía, de Roland H. Totheroh, se rueda a cámara fija frente al escenario y a cierta distancia del mismo. El humor visual cuenta con un generoso repertorio de peleas, puñetazos, persecuciones, huidas, caídas, etc. La escena fantástica se resuelve con gran ingenio, ternura y humor.



Siempre que sea posible las películas se visionarán en V.O.S.E.
Las proyecciones contarán con presentación previa y coloquio posterior a cargo de la Asociación “Universitarios con la infancia”

Se concerán créditos de libre elección (1 para estudiantes de plan antiguo y 0,5 para estudiantes de grado) para aquellas personas que acudan a un mínimo de 7 proyecciones y realicen un trabajo.

Más información e inscripciones en Área de Actividades Culturales de la Universidad.


Es difícil saber con esta versión en DVD, con un nuevo montaje de Chaplin, conocer el ritmo y lenguaje fílmico preciso de esta película en 1921. En todo caso, en esta versión "remodelada" es una obra maestra, y no cabe duda de que Chaplin fue uno de los grandes inventores de la narración cinematográfica. Está especialmente lograda la composición informativa de las escenas, la claridad que distingue los fondos lejanos de los cercanos, la interacción de los actores... y por supuesto la nueva banda sonora perfectamente integrada con el tono emocional de cada escena.

A notar la transición de la realidad al sueño en la escena "Dreamland", con qué tranquilidad pasa el cine del realismo a la ensoñación, y con qué claridad lo consigue evocar Chaplin. (Aunque no es el primero que representa distintos planos de realidad en el cine, vino antes Méliès).

¿Y dónde veía yo a estos clásicos?  A Charlot, claro, lo veíamos con frecuencia en un programa de "Cine Mudo" que echaban en la tele, en blanco y negro por entonces, así que hacía más próximo en el tiempo, y lo era, y lo era. Pero sus películas largas no las ví de niño, con alguna excepción quizá. Sobre "The Kid" leí en un cómic o revista juvenil francesa que me leía en los 70, en Francia, me lo regalaron mis tíos creo. "Bayard" se titulaba, y en una sección hablaba de las estrellas del cine mudo. Luego me informé sobre Chaplin como artista del cine en la enciclopedia temática de Roger Caratini—fue allí donde se me despertó una conciencia del cine como arte. 


Pero hoy interesa poco esto. A mis chavales no hay manera de interesarlos por ver películas antiguas. Y de todos los estudiantes de la Universidad de Zaragoza (miles y miles) a este ciclo asistieron ayer tres o cuatro. Cuando lo tienen gratis, que a su edad no me perdía yo una.

Who's in Charge

Who's In Charge

Una nota David Gordon a PsyArt:
Michael Gazzagina's "Who's in Charge: Free Will and the Science of the Brain" offers the most illuminating account to date of how those two layers of mental organization we call "brain" and "mind (consciousness)" are related. The brain with its numerous centers and pathways is a decision-making device, operating always ahead of conscious awareness and according to a deterministic rule that excludes the possibility of a hidden self or "free will." But as soon as one brain is exposed to another (think of a newborn with its mother), consciousness emerges. The brain "enables" consciousness (thoughts, desires, beliefs). But because the behavior of this emergent consciousness is subject to so many variables, it is less predictable, more uncertain, than the behavior of the deterministic brain. The mind's mode of organization is "stochastic", "chaotic"; it must be understood in terms of probability rather than certainty, as we must understand long-range weather forecasting or quantum rather than Newtonian physics. Different as they are, the two systems necessarily interact in human beings. Mind cannot be independent of brain because it depends on the brain to execute its decisions. And brain in turn is involved with the mind it has enabled; it is inevitably social. The relation between the two layers is "complementary," characterized by an interaction of "bottom up" and "top down" modes of causation. Gazzaniga acknowledges that we don't yet have an adequate vocabulary to understand these "layered interactions," "our layered hierarchical existence." But his approach is more promising, less inert, than earlier attempts to describe brain/mind like the one captured in the phrase "dual-aspect monism." This new attempt offers insight into an unstable and dynamic interaction.
Who's in charge, according to Gazzaniga? "My contention," he writes, "is that ultimately responsibility is a contract between people rather than a property of the brain, and determinism has no meaning in this context." "We are people, not brains, and all of life's experiences impact our emergent mental system." Thus "responsibility" for Gazzaniga replaces the obsolete concept of free will. And he boldly applies this idea to the thorny problem of criminal law, writing that there is no "scientific" reason not to hold people fully responsible for their behavior. He should have said no "neuroscientific" reason, so as to conceal his prejudice against other psychologies. Not that many of us, I think, like to see psychoanalysts in a courtroom. But is there any place at all for psychoanalysis in his discussion? Not directly, but he provides an opening. He emphasizes the fact that the decision-making brain can only work with the data it is fed, so if the input from the mind is inconsistent or conflicted, the brain may well execute bad decisions.
The book overall is richer, wittier and more humane than my precis can convey. Do read it and share your reaction.

DAVID COPPERFIELD (The Personal History, Adventures, Experience, & Observation of David Copperfield the Younger)
País: EEUU Año: 1935 Duración: 125 min. B/N

Dirección: George Cukor.
Guión: Howard Estabrook y Hugh Walpole basado en la novela homónima de Charles Dickens
Fotografía: Oliver T. Marsh.
Música: Herbert Stothart.
Dirección artística: Cedric Gibbons.
Montaje: Robert J. Kern.
Intérpretes: Edna May Oliver, Elizabeth Allan, Jessie Ralph, Harry Beresford, Freddie Bartholomew, Hugh Walpole, Basil Rathbone, Herbert Mundin, John Buckler, Una O’Connor, Lionel Barrymore, Elsa Lanchester, W.C. Fields, Maureen O’Sullivan.

Sinopsis: Inglaterra, siglo XIX. Cuando el padre del joven David muere, su madre se vuelve a casar. Su padrastro es un hombre cruel que, después de enviudar, manda a David a Londres para que viva de su trabajo.


Film de George Cukor, basado en la novela (1850) de Charles Dickens. Se rueda, en B/N, en exteriores de Canterbury y Malibú y en los MGM Studios. Fue nominada a 3 Oscar (mejor película). Producido por David O. Selznick para la MGM, se presenta en “première” el 8-I-1935 (EEUU).

La acción tiene lugar en Bloonderstone, Salem House, Londres, Dover, Yermouth y otras localidades, entre 1810/19 y 1835/44. Dickens trabaja 2 años (1848/50) en la novela, narrada en primera persona (como la película), con abundantes referencias autobiográficas. David Copperfield nace en Blooderstone 6 meses después de la muerte del padre, en un año indeterminado de la segunda década del XIX. Los avatares de la vida le enfrentan pronto (a los 8/9 años) a problemas y dificultades que le obligan a tomar decisiones arriesgadas y trascendentes.

La película desarrolla un drama que se sitúa antes de la época victoriana (1870/1914). Es el tiempo en el que se sientan las bases de una larga fase de prosperidad, mejora de las condiciones de vida, aumento de los salarios, pleno empleo, avances sociales, popularización y reglamentación de los deportes (cricket en 1847), extensión de la enseñanza, emergencia de una clase media amplia, florecimiento de la cultura, el arte y la literatura, progresiva definición de una moral colectiva basada en la austeridad, el trabajo, la respetabilidad y la familia. Se imponen nuevas figuras como el divorcio (1847). La mujer conserva posiciones de dependencia, pero a ella corresponde el gobierno de la casa. La película, de la mano de una excelente adaptación de la novela, muestra el pálpito de la sociedad de la época. La tía Betsey se ha separado del marido, que ha enviado a la India. Jane Murdstone asume el gobierno de la casa en lugar del hermano. Agnes Wickfield tiene la fuerza necesaria para sostener la familia cuando el padre cae en el alcoholismo. Al perder el referente de su familia, David se incorpora a la de la tía Betsey. La hipocresía de unos y la irresponsabilidad de otros son sancionadas severamente. Se elogia el sentido del deber familiar de quien acoge a los sobrinos huérfanos y a la cuñada viuda. David decide ser escritor, una profesión con mayores oportunidades que en el pasado. Se censuran los castigos físicos, en especial los destinados al sometimiento de personas. Se hace exhibición de modas americanas como la de fumar tabaco en pipa de caña larga. El humor se hace presente a través de personajes pintorescos como tía Betsey, el loco muy lúcido Sr. Nick, el bueno de Wilkins Micawber, acosado siempre por las deudas, etc.

La música, de Herbert Stothart, es abundante y descriptiva: tormenta, fatiga de David, naufragio, etc. Hace uso de solos de voz y violines dentro de un conjunto orquestal de viento y cuerdas. La fotografía luce encuadres fijos, movimientos limitados de cámara, cuidadas composiciones de grupos, colores contrastados y negros intensos. Las interpretaciones son gratas y convincentes.

_______
Bien, pues vemos con no demasiado público este clásico. Llama la atención la obsesión con la diferencia social, y el terror a perder el status de gentleman para convertirse en proletario o en mendigo. Inversamente, el malvado de la película es un trepa social, el intrigante Uriah Heep que con sus malas artes se apodera de la oficina de su patrón, pretende a su hija... y es debidamente castigado y humillado. Esta cuestión de la ansiedad por la posición social viene de la autobiografía de Dickens, como muchos otros elementos "descolocados" en la novela (y en la película) como son el carácter improvidente y la familia desorganizada de Mr. Micawber - aquí proyecta Dickens elementos de su propia infancia y de su padre, como también el episodio en que se manda al niño a trabajar, proletarizándolo. 
Otro elemento desplazado que llama la atención es la historia de los dos matrimonios. David Copperfield, DC, es "CD", Charles Dickens, convenientemente disimulado, el único escritor de sus héroes. Su matrimonio con Dora es un trasunto del amor temprano de Dickens a su esposa, que iría seguido del desengaño ante su falta de inteligencia y su indolencia como ama de casa. Pero tuvo la mujer el desacierto de no morirse, y Dickens lo corrige debidamente en su ficción, preservando así en su pureza el amor que en realidad desapareció. En cuanto al angel guardián del hogar, Agnes, veo en ella una transposición de su cuñada, con quien Dickens (con)vivió un idilio platónico o amistad idealizada. Me pregunto si sus conocidos interpretarían esto en su fuero interno; comentarlo hubiera sido demasiado inconveniente. La realidad fue otra, no menos interesante, pero en la ficción el novelista no duda en matar a la esposa, convenientemente llorada, y sustituirla por la cuñada, what the Dickens. Daría para mucho un biopic que mezclase elementos de Charles D. y David C. Además, seguro que ya existe.

Dos noticias de Andalucía

—¿Estarán relacionadas, siquiera sea por un aire de famiglia?

Hoy hasta El País saca cómo nos saquea esta beautiful people. Pero lo cuentan de manera más fiable en cualquier otro sitio (aquí el ABC).

Con inventoras como ésta, en España nos bastamos y sobramos. ¡Que inventen otros!

_________



Y más: Ya ni los socialistas se atreven a defender la honradez de José Blanco, el factótum que sin estudios ni oficio ni beneficio ha estado cortando y repartiendo todo el país. Con tollos calladitos detrás. Criticarlo, aún no lo critica ni uno, y eso que cada vez es más palmario que que era un corruto y, en efecto, más listillo que listo.

Está por ver, sin embargo, si a todo el ejército de listillos que daban el dinero de ida y vuelta les va a caer algo más que una reprimenda. El negocio sigue productivo aunque se destape, que el dinero ya ha ido a donde debía.

Y otra noticia, ésta de Grecia (no de Borbón y Grecia, aunque también me acuerdo de lo de Urdangarín, otro inventor que tal). Hace un año, con España quebrada, invertía Zapatero milles de millones de euros en deuda griega. Como el "experto" Solbes cuando vendió el oro del Banco de España "porque iba a bajar", sólo que éste compró deuda griega a espuertas por los intereses que daban "por hacer negocio".  Bien, ahora Grecia dice que no va a devolver nada ni va a pagar nada. Y a Zapatero nadie lo va a llevar a juicio, ni tiene ningún proceso abierto, porque éste todo lo ha hecho bien y legal.

Ahora que la manera en que éste y otros que tal han entrampado al Banco Central Europeo no es una broma. Ya veremos si salimos de ésta, y cómo.

Autonomías insostenibles e inviables

Respuesta a una discusión en LinkedIn en la que se preguntaban por si la autonomía aragonesa es beneficiosa y productiva, y se preocupaban por el estancamiento de proyectos y la falta de ideas factibles que se echa de ver en la administración autonómica:

 

Es especialmente cierto lo que dices (o especialmente visible desde aquí) en el caso de Aragón, pero claro, no tiene sentido decir si es beneficiosa o perjudicial al margen de lo que es el sistema autonómico español en general. Que es el que hay que replantear de base, y allí coincido con Rosa Díez, por insostenible económicamente y políticamente inviable y disgregador. Hay que subrayar que ningún otro partido del arco parlamentario sostiene este discurso que sin embargo es de una evidencia cada vez mayor.

Agenda online

Probé un programa de agendas en red que ni me convenció ni me sirvió para nada. Y el del ordenador, cómodo y demás, no me vale para nada porque no está en red ni pasa de un ordenador a otro. Lo mejor para esto, como para tantas otras cosas, es un blog. Enlace permanente en tus favoritos a un post, le pones un enlace en el iPhone, y a correr. Lo vas cambiando sobre la marcha cuando quieras.

 

__________


Si antes hablo... resulta que Blooger cambia ahora la plantilla de edición, de modo que resulta imposible pasar directamente desde un artículo a su modo de edición. Se acabó la agenda online del blog. Así que pruebo a hacer lo mismo con un documento de Google Docs. A ver cuánto dura la nueva agenda online.

Auto-colaboración

Auto-colaboración


Curioso este párrafo de la carta en la que el director de nuestro Departamento nos comunica las razones de su cese voluntario. Entre otras:

"3) Haber llegado a cierto estado de agotamiento físico, intelectual y emocional no sólo por el lógico impacto del tiempo pasado en estas labores de gestión y sus circunstancias estructurales y humanas, sino también por haber tenido que asumir en los dos últimos años, por el bien común, las funciones que el apartado b) del Reglamento del Departamento establecen para la Subdirección de Ordenación Académica; a saber, "coordinar la ordenación académica  y [...] colaborar con el Director del Departamento en la elaboración del Plan de Ordenación Docente."

Si mal no lo interpreto, lo agotador no es la auto-colaboración, sino que el Subdirector de Ordenación Académica ha estado de cuerpo presente, o de mente ausente, desde hace años.

Quizá el Rector tome nota y lo nombre Director— porque candidatos al puesto no sé si va a haber. Como decía Samuel Beckett sobre su autobiografía: I will not hinder, I will not help. O era al revés.

The Story in All Stories


Descubro Storify, un generador de blogs tipo Tumblr, que se presenta como una herramienta para crear historias.

El otro día empecé un blog/agregador sobre Retrospección, en Scoop.it; de hecho, es con Scoop.it con lo que he descubierto Storify. Son parecidos, pero por probar inauguro en Storify un blog / historia sobre "The Story in all Stories".  Lo defino como "Cosas sobre cosmología, evolución, (gran) historia y representación."


Es una manera de empezar a recoger materiales que me sirvan para mi conferencia de París, para el congreso de la ENN "Emerging Vectors of Narratology".  Lo que presentaré allí tiene un título parecido: "The Story behind any Story: Evolution, Historicity, and Narrative Mapping." Así vamos echando el cerebro a rodar, a ver dónde para. Con apoyo cibernético.

Y aquí una aplicación de Storify para conectar automáticamente el contenido de las redes sociales, y generar historias "automágicamente".

Computation and the Future of Mankind

9 de marzo de 2012


Una conferencia de Stephen Wolfram en la Cumbre sobre Singularidad. Hay todo un canal de YouTube sobre este congreso tan interesante.



Oyendo sus especulaciones sobre complejidad, inteligencia y computación, se me ocurre la posibilidad de escribir una nueva interpretación de Solaris, de Lem.

También sugiere Wolfram un interesante tratamiento de la cuestión de cómo surge la complejidad universal por efecto mariposa—una teoría que fue formulada de modo muy interesante por Herbert Spencer hace 150 años.

The Experimental Study of Cultural Evolution

A lecture by Alex Mesoudi:




It's clear that we're much better at aping than apes are. And also at generating and transmitting diversity. People try to copy the most successful members of their group. Piracy works, and so does Creative Commons. And copycatting, and snobbery.

True Believers


"I worry about true believers and committed unbelievers much more than I worry about incurable doubters. True believers—even those who believe in unbelief—seek certainty and the security it supposedly brings. When belief overcomes doubt, everything becomes transparent and no question goes unanswered".

Escritura compulsiva


Estoy que no escribo—al menos no compulsivamente. Y esa es la única escritura que vale la pena, según Mark C. Taylor:

The only writers worth reading are writers who cannot not write. They are obsessed, though they know not by what. Indeed, if they knew what obsesses them, they would no longer have to write. For genuine writers writing is neither a job nor a profession—it is nothing less than life itself. If asked why they write, they can only echo Luther standing before the Diet of Worms: "I can do no other". They do not write to earn money or in the hope of becoming a tenured professor; writing without why, they write because they must write. Their work requires no research other than life itself. The true writer obsessively pursues the sentence that will make his life worth living. Scholars who cannot write are granted tenure for their books about writers who can.

(...)

But writing to pass time by distracting us from what we feel compelled to avoid is not really writing. The writing that matters neither comforts nor reassures but relentlessly turns us toward what turns us away.

The obsession that allows—no, requires—one to write is as much a curse as a blessing. Ordinary writers confronted with a blank page fear words will not come; obsessed writers dread they will never stop. Day and night, night and day, words leave the writer no rest. They arrive when and where they will, crowding out other thoughts and interrupting sleep that is never sound. Once they start, no distraction will stop them—they flow faster than the hand can record them. Ask the writer where they come from and she will in all likelihood confess she does not know and is not even sure it is she who writers. Writing seems to emerge from a fathomless elsewhere. Though more interior than the most profound inwardness, the elsewhere that is the whence of writing is where I am by not being there. When the writer signs books, she knows her name is doubled by an anonymity that speaks pseudonymously in words that are not her own.

(...)

The writing that matters is not a choice—it is a gift that imposes burdens that cannot be refused. The obsession of writing often carries a hight price: Kierkegaard collapsed on the streets of Copenhagen at the age of 42 and died a few days later. Nietzsche slipped into madness at 46 and lingered for a decade; Poe fell into a drunken stupor on a Baltimore street and died alone and unknown when he was 40; Melville faded from the public eye when he was only 33 and lived in solitude and anonymity for decades. There were others, many others. Often the more intensely the flame of writing burns the more briefly it lasts. For the serious writer the true tragedy is not going mad or dying young but continuing to write when he has nothing left to say.

Seguimos rebajando Bolonia


Hoy nos comunican un escrito de la Comisión de Garantía del Grado e
mortadela bolognan EE.II., según el cual dicha Comisión permitirá excepcionalmente eliminar el sistema de evaluación continua en aquellas asignaturas que tengan grupos superiores a los 25 alumnos.

O sea, en todas menos en las optativas menos buscadas. Y es que lo de Bolonia a coste cero... ya lo decía el rey Lear, "de la nada nada saldrá".

Pero en fin, yo acabo de enviar un par de guías docentes de asignaturas nuevas para el año que viene, "Introducción a la literatura inglesa" de Lenguas Modernas, y "Géneros Literarios en lengua inglesa I" —y las dos, y otra más de grado que daré, tienen evaluación continua, o algo que se le parece. Con 25 alumnos, con menos, o con más; hasta ahora no me he ahogado en la avalancha de trabajos.

Una solución la propone el catedrático Víctor Sorribas, para dar abasto con toda esta docencia ahora en tiempos de crisis y recortes: subir el número de horas de clase a los profesores que no investiguen.  Parece justo, ¿no?

El dinero, pa los Ronaldos


Los clubes de fútbol le deben a Hacienda más de 700 millones de euros, aunque hasta ahora no he visto que cierren ninguno. Rajoy es aficionado a Marca. Hacienda se quedará sin cobrar y nos pasará la factura a los demás, pero los Ronaldiños y los Cristianos seguirán fichando contratos millonarios, con las mordidas en negro correspondientes para los presidentes y demás gestores—que una estrella del fútbol es como un Picasso, de valor incalculable y variable, muy útil para hacer mover capitales de aquí para allá sin que se note. Esto sí que es meternos la pala del Cristiano, pero bien. En este país, más tontos y no nacemos.

Balance

miércoles 14 de marzo de 2012

Balance


(From Mark Taylor's Field Notes from Elsewhere. A nice example of deconstructive reversal, and of the unexpected undermining of certainties. And an elegant defense of marriage as well).


I have always been wary of balance
because I fear it will take the edge off. I prefer things off balance, slightly out of kilter, just a little bit edgy. When things seem settled, I get unsettled; when people get comfortable, I am uncomfortable. I value disagreement more than agreement, resistance more than compliance. As a parent I am demanding, as a colleague, difficult, and as a teacher, tough. It is because I respect others—because I want for them what they often don't want for themselves—that I try to keep them off balance.danceme5

On the face of it, she could not be more different from me. She is balanced, I am not; she seeks the middle ground I avoid. She does not get unsettled when things seem settled, nor does she become restless when things slow down. To others it appears that she balances my imbalance. This is not completely wrong because my obsession with imbalance can, I confess, become excessive. Sometimes pushing things as well as people to the limit crosses the line. When this moment approaches, she pulls me back by insisting that I must restore a semblance of balance. I often resist but usually know she is right.

In daily negotiations large and small, her strategies and tactics are more effective than mine. Without repressing disagreement, she is able to win acceptance; without overwhelming resistance, she is able to gain compliance. She understands that balance and imbalance are inseparable—each simultaneously promotes and subverts the other. When regularly anticipated, the insistence on imbalance inevitably loses its edge. Predictable tactics of resistance become ineffective and can quickly be dismissed as simply more of the same. At this point it becomes necessary to change tactics and switch directions by resisting resistance and insisting on maintaining a semblance of balance. With this reversal the prospect of settlement becomes unsettling for those who had anticipated agreement to be impossible. Compliance, paradoxically, becomes a tactic of resistance. At the very moment when everything seems settled, no one is sure what to expect next, and thus everyone remains warily off balance. Far from stabilizing, equilibrium can be disruptive and balance edgy.

Remodelación de la identidad narrativa

jueves 15 de marzo de 2012

Remodelación de la identidad narrativa


Observaba una amiga mía hoy en Facebook lo saludable que es ver las cosas desde perspectivas desacostumbradas:

"Es increíble todo lo que se puede ver..., simplemente cambiando el punto de vista. Cambiar de ángulo es recomendable, ensancha la mente."
 


La interacción comunicativa y la reperspectivización pueden favorecer la remodelación de la identidad narrativa en el curso del tratamiento psicoterapéutico, según los ejemplos analizados por Eszter Beran y Zsolt Unoka. Tratan el caso de una paciente con amnesia y disociación de personalidad, a resultas de una experiencia traumática. La recreación narrativa de episodios de infancia proporciona un asidero para la memoria y para revivir el episodio traumático, esta vez con distancia que permite representarlo verbalmente. Según Anderson (1), el acceso a un determinado conglomerado de recuerdos va asociado a una determinada perspectiva narrativa. El análisis de Beran y Unoka muestra cómo un cambio en la perspectiva narrativa del paciente contribuye a hacer accesibles a la consciencia determinados recuerdos, antes inaccesibles, relacionados con un episodio de abuso sexual.

Mediante la identificación con su yo infantil, a través del relato de recuerdos, la paciente recobra una parte disociada de su personalidad, que a través de sucesivas sesiones va haciéndose accesible para la reelaboración narrativa. El resultado será la construcción de una identidad más comprensiva, que englobe las dos identidades inconexas a través de su representación narrativa—para empezar, por el hecho mismo de englobarlas en la misma historia:

"The therapists's NP [narrative perspective], and hence, the story he constructed of the patient, contains the actual narrative position of the patient (i.e.: her actual narrative self), as well as her other narrative selves, specifically, the narrative of her main identity. For the patient, these narrative selves constitute two independent narratives. The relating and connecting of these two narratives became possible for Elsa, since she was able to take the therapist's NP [narrative perspective]. Hence, the situation of the narrative interaction allowed for her to construe a new, unified self-narrative, including both identities." (2)
 


Es decir, el autoconcepto se asocia a una estructura narrativa, y los episodios traumáticos no se incorporan a esta identidad narrativa, constituyendo fragmentos narrativos aislados o mal integrados. El hecho mismo de trabajar simbólicamente en la creación de una narración unificada tiene efectos psicológicos beneficiosos, al efectuarse una transferencia metonímica por la cual la personalidad del paciente y la historia de su vida queda más integrada, por vía del trabajo efectuado en su autorrepresentación discursiva y narrativa, en el relato que es la única forma en que el conjunto de su vida es accesible como tal.

Es de notar que el posible beneficio de esta psicoterapia narrativa no presupone en absoluto el suscribirse a la teoría de la mente de Freud ni a las más cuestionables de sus presuposiciones.

Representar, y re-representar, cambiar la perspectiva, remodela nuestra conceptualización de l objeto representado, incluso si ese objeto es el propio sujeto. El mero hecho de ver los fragmentos disociados de la propia identidad representados o interpretados por otra persona, o incluso por uno mismo, simplemente el darles la unidad discursiva mínima que requiere el hablar de ellos, supone ya una remodelación psíquica de los mismos. Para Emerson, somos seres simbólicos y en flujo,

"We are symbols and inhabit symbols; workmen, work, and tools, words and things, birth and death, are all emblems; but we sympathize with the symbols, and being infatuated with the economical uses of things, we do not know that they are thoughts." (3)


Nuestra identidad misma es simbólica, en sus anclajes, su coherencia y su unidad—y en un ser constituido simbólicamente, trabajar sobre la representación es trabajar sobre la sustancia misma del ser.

Hombres y mujeres colaborando (metafóricamente)

De un estudio recogido en Narrative Interaction. Las metáforas usadas por las mujeres para describir relaciones de colaboración sugieren que tiene menos dudas emocionales a la hora de embarcarse en estas relaciones, y que describen la dinámica de la colaboración en téminos más generalmente positivos (189). Los hombres desconfían más de la colaboración, aunque también reconocen sus ventajas.

"The more cautious and individualistic nature of the male participants emerges more clearly in the metaphors they produced when talking about negotiation and dialogue. The metaphors indicated that in spite of a willingness to surrender to an integrated relationship men still quietly fought to maintain a small degree of independence and identity. Women, on the other hand, were much less overtly resistant to the collaborative process and therefore achieved a more smoothly running ensemble appearance. This slight tension between individual and group identity with the men many have resulted in a greater number of metaphors dedicated to negotiation and dialogue because they were constatnly having to work and rework their roles and positions". (190).

Otra noción interesante es la construcción imaginativa de un espacio colaborativo mediante la metáfora:

"collaborators strive to create and share a mental working or participation space in which htey could both move in and out of depending on the context or situational demands. It was clear from their metaphors that the collaborators constructed and experienced this space in relation to their own bodies and this ’area’ was an essential component in the actual collaboration." (182).

Las metáforas usadas por ambos sexos incluyen movimiento y dinámica a partes iguales,

"but a deeper analysis showed that men tended to move in a linear trajectory down a conceptually tangible path while women moved in more multi-dimensional ’off-path’ directions. Women also appeared to move more from the surface into the depths of the path, the result of which was more comments on the dynamics of general change. Men remained clearly entrenched either on or near the path., therefore they made more observations regarding discrete stages." (186).
