Abstract

Proust, who describes jealousy, is a theorist of passion. He mastered the philosophical heritage he had absorbed during his hard and exhaustive studies. Even if, in the past, passion itself has not played a significant role in the thought of philosophers, Proust finds in their writings a considerable number of principles.
First, we will see how Proust deconstructs the experience of passion, and that be doing so he resembles a clinician who analyzes his subject. Then, we shall see how Proust reaches his conclusions and creates a philosophy of passion; finally, we shall examine a rarely studied aspect in this field: how passion contributes to artistic creation, and, in particular, the process of writing a novel.
