Quand l'art agit dans la Cité : vers un nouveau statut du musicien

Abstract : This doctoral thesis put forward an historical reading of the musician’s status in the city. The ancient Greeks had another approach of the city, known as a political community organised around the willingness of « the community life ». The study of the musician’s social status since prehistory has allowed nowadays to shed light on a new paradigm. The musician became a mediator or a medium in conjunction with an economical, technological and symbolic environment, he contributes to a transformation, which makes visible the human beings inside the environment, in particular those marginalised, banned from the society or in situation of vulnerability. The neurosciences highlight this matter by strengthening this phenomenon. Indeed, the music considered as a body language can genuinely operate on people without reducing the human beings to neuronal attentions which can explain the contemplation or the creation of the art work, as neuroesthetics claim.
