Baudrillard on Seduction

INTRODUCTION

A fixed destiny weighs on seduction. For religion seduction was a strategy of the devil, whether in the guise of witchcraft or love. It is always the seduction of evil – or of the world. It is the very artifice of the world. Its malediction has been un-changed in ethics and philosophy, and today it is maintained in psychoanalysis and the ‘liberation of desire.’ Given the present-day promotion of sex, evil and perversion, along with the celebration of the off times programmatic resurrection of all that was once accursed, it might seem paradoxical that seduction has remained in the shadows – and even returned there to
permanently.

導引

  固定的命運壓在誘拐上。因為宗教的誘拐是魔鬼的一種策略,無論偽裝成為巫術或愛情。這總是邪惡的誘拐,或是世界的誘拐。這是世界的華廈。它的召換咒語在倫理學及哲學方面,並無改變。今天在精神分析學及「慾望的解放」,仍然存在。若考慮到目前對於性、邪惡及變態的鼓吹,外加對於過去被認為是褻瀆事物不合時宜地死灰復燃,誘拐還一直保留在陰影之地,永久回到那裡,看起來似乎是矛盾的。

 

The eighteenth century still spoke of seduction. It was, with valor and honor, a central preoccupation of the aristocratic spheres. The bourgeois Revolution put an end to this preoccupation (and the others, the later revolutions ended it irrevocably – every revolution, in its beginnings, seeks to end the seduction of appearances). The bourgeois era dedicated itself to nature and production, things quite foreign and even expressly fatal to seduction. And since sexuality arises, as Foucault notes, from a process of production (of discourse, speech or desire), it is not at all surprising that seduction has been all the more covered over. We live today in the promotion of nature, be it the good nature of the soul of yesteryear, or the good material nature of things, or even the psychic nature of desire. Nature pursues its realization through all the metamorphosis of the repressed, and through the liberation of all energies, be they psychic, social or material.

十八世紀依舊談到誘拐。誘拐是貴族氛圍的專注,勇敢而榮譽。中產階級的革命結束這個專注(其它後來的革命則斷草除根地結束誘拐,每次革命在初期,就設法結束外表的誘拐。)中產階級專注於自然與生產,這些是相當陌生的東西,甚至跟誘拐格格不入。如佛洛依德所意到,性起源於生產的過程(話語,言談或欲望),也就難怪誘拐更加隱秘。我們今天的生活鼓吹自然,無論是以前所說的靈魂的自然,或是東西的物質自然,或甚至是欲望的心靈自然。自然透過受到壓抑的蛻變及所有精力的解放,無論他們是心靈、社會或物質的解放,來追尋自己的實現。
