Preguiça desse blog, ainda mais depois do carnaval. Fiquem aí com fotos que marcaram o carnaval de 2009!
O grande especialista Robert Darnton nos fala um pouco sobre o mercado editorial no século 18:
Is there any kind of violence in films which you might regard as socially dangerous?
SK: Well, I don’t accept that there is a connection , but let us hypothetically say that there might be one. If there were one, I should say that the kind of violence that might cause some impulse to emulate it is the “fun” kind of violence : the kind of violence we see in the Bond films or the Tom and Jerry cartoons. Unrealistic violence, sanitized violence, violence presented as a joke. This is the only kind of violence that could conceivably causa anyone to wish to copy it, but I am quite convinced that not even this has any effect. There may be even an argument in support of saying that any kind of violence in films, in fact, serves a useful social purpose by allowing people a means of vicariously freeing themselves from the pent up, agressive emotions which are better expressed in dreams, or in the dreamlike state of watching a film, than in any form of reality of sublimation.
