Spectateur et paria : pluralité et individualité dans les écrits politiques de Pier Paolo Pasolini

Abstract : The analysis of Pasolini's political writings can help us define the impact his thought had in his time. This impact is an example of the role the intellectual can play as a critical consciousness actor of his time and this example presupposes the search of a theoretical frame in which the intellectual evolves in a world that is dominated by the power of mass media and their ability to equalize the opinion and even the thought. In a society where the intellectual is mainly a scholar who stands out in the public field that is ruled by the mass media and especially the TV, it may be interesting to come back to the birth of thiscivilisation before the image-ruled society outclassed the word-ruled one. Pasolini feels, analyses and criticises this evolution : he could see how dangerous it was and also knew howto exploit its forces, what makes his legacy topical. Being an outcast, a pariah in the Italian cultural world of that time enables him to have an external point of view on his world , yet, his controversial and heretical discourse made his subjectivity prevail. The pitiless and critical eye he had on the world and himself develops in his political writings according to three main themes that are also representative of his many-faceted personality : his passion for pedagogy, his sensitivity for the artistic shape and his socio-political commitment.
