Paul Valéry, regards sur la guerre

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Grande Guerre des écrivains : études
  • Author: Signorile (Patricia)
  • Abstract: Valéry states that ­construction and destruction are intimately linked. Whether he is ­considering different aspects relating to institutional ­conflicts, the possibility of just war, or the role of intersubjective relations, Valéry sweeps away illusions and certainties about the usefulness of armed ­conflicts, the Great War having revealed “the powerlessness of knowledge to save anything at all”.
