Eléments pour une philosophie de la création

Abstract : This research deals with the creation at large in order to propose if not a philosophy of creation, at least an admissible interpretative hypothesis. It seeks to explore some elements of theology, philosophy and aesthetics according to a periodic method. The first part clarifies the transcendent conception of creation by focusing on Thomas Aquinas. It shows that, from Genesis until Descartes and Leibniz creation is thought through the divine perfection as radical otherness, both in terms of creatio ex nihilo than of continuous creation. The second part implements the critical conception of creation through the course of Kant. Noumenal Kant relegation and liquidation of creatio ex nihilo by Fichte begin the reversal of the divine agent in favor of the subject, which obtains full powers with Nietzsche. The third part forms the hypothesis of a constitutive conception of creation by building on the symbolic institution that takes place in Lacan and in Anzieu’s creative process. From Bergson to Deleuze via Heidegger's thought of Schöpfung, we emphasize openness to transcendence, inherent to the creation, leading to distinguish it from neighboring concepts: evolution, invention, art and creativity. The research leads to the assumption of pentalogy composed of distinct and interrelated nodal points: obstacle, repetition, jouissance, secretion and burial. The confrontation of this hypothesis to the philosophies of Kant, Husserl, Heidegger, Lacan and Deleuze, provides the basis for a new constitutive approach to creation.
