« Corps séduisant et corps séduit. La physiologie de la séduction dans les textes doctrinaux et littéraires de l'Espagne de la première modernité (fin XVe-XVIIe siècle) »

Abstract : This work proposes to study the representation of seduction in medical discourse, in doctrinal texts that popularise medical knowledge, as well as in literary texts from late medieval to 17th century Spain. More specifically, seduction will be analysed in its bodily dimension, in other words, the physiological mechanisms of seduction. Seduction and the process of enamourment are indeed the subject of an abundant theoretical and reflexive discourse, present in medical texts, but also in philosophical and moral treatises and even in literary texts. In an era that did not separate body and mind, where passions could not be thought of without a physical and humoral substratum, seduction, love at first sight, and the process of innamoramento triggered by the seductive gaze were the subject of a set of representations that left a large part to physiology and medical representations. The examination of medical and literary texts on seduction will reveal a real network of images, as rich as it is coherent
