Umberto Eco on Vitalism - Dictionary of Arguments

I 179
Vitalism/EcoVsVitalism: "Temptation through Vitality": André Pieyre de Mandiargues on Dubuffet: "There is no longer any abstraction here, only the immediate presence of the matter that we are supposed to enjoy in its concreteness".
I 180
Eco: this places art on the same level of sensations that the author receives from the muddy and lush Nile streams. This forms the picture into a field of choices that are already made before it becomes a field of true choices. ((s) It prevents the image from becoming the scene of a process of perception and thus it will degenerate into a representation or illustration that has always been present.)
I 183
EcoVsVitalismus: the gesture should not remain something external, no referent, no hieroglyph for vitality, which means cold and repeatable the term "free escape of vitality".
