Abstract
L’article suggère qu’Augustin anticipe de manière singulière « l’esthétique ». Sa réflexion porte, en effet, non seulement sur le beau sensible et sur l’art, mais sur la plénitude de l’expérience subjective qui met en jeu le corps et l’âme, la sensibilité et la raison. Ainsi dessine-t-elle une interrogation sur la place du plaisir, de la quête qu’il engendre, de l’attention réceptive et quasi co-créative qu’il sollicite. Pour mieux le montrer, l’analyse se centre sur le De musica, en revalorisant le lien nécessaire, mais trop souvent mésestimé, entre les 5 premiers livres et le dernier et en montrant l’unité du projet indissociablement anagogique et esthétique. The paper suggests that Augustine anticipates in his own way « aesthetics ». Indeed his reflection does not only deal with sensible beauty, nor with art alone, but with the whole of subjective experience involving body and soul, sensibility and reason. It sets forth an interrogation on the place of pleasure, on the quest it generates, on the attention it requires both at the receptive and the co-creative level. In order to strengthen the argument, the analysis focuses on the De musica, emphasizing anew the link — necessary but too often overlooked — between the first five books and the last one and demonstrating the unity of a project that is indissolubly anagogical and aesthetic.
