Sacrée Mana ou les modalités de l’être problématisées : enquête sur la relation entre les modalités et les modes d’existence dans les mythes et la fantasy

Abstract : Mana proposes an alternative vision of "beings" as forces. If monotheistic cultures are based on the hierarchical distribution of a single modal force (vertical organization), mana offers a completely different organization (horizontal) which puts diverse modal powers in competition. An alternative model of modal organization emerges in polytheistic cultures, characterized, in particular, by a mereological deployment (between the topicalization of an absolute divinity and scattered manifestations but belonging to the same emanation) as well as a complex actantial deployment.
