Emotionen in der Querelle des femmes du Seconde Empire oder: Freundschaft und Rivalität in der Moderne


Arni, Caroline (2008). Emotionen in der Querelle des femmes du Seconde Empire oder: Freundschaft und Rivalität in der Moderne. Feministische Studien: Zeitschrift für interdisziplinäre Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung, 26(1):34-47.

Abstract

Sharing as a precondition the assumed equality of the individuals involved, friendship and rivalry between women and men are, in modernity, met with emotional ambivalence: within the context of the promise of equality being declared as a universal principle, yet put into practice as an exclusive privilege, friendly/rivalling relations between men and women are both desired and rejected. The article explores this thesis by interpreting an aborted dispute between the feminist social philosopher Jenny P. d'Héricourt and the political philosopher and anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. In this short but telling episode of the so-called Querelle des femmes du Seconde Empire, equality between the sexes is at stake not only as a subject of debate but also as a feature of the relationship that results from a man and a woman disputing with each other in the public arena. On the grounds of this analysis, I argue for a history of emotions that addresses political and intellectual history by not limiting itself to the study of the ideas deployed but by also taking into account the relationships generated when persons enter a public dispute as well as the emotions that accompany them.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
