Colères et ordo amoris dans les styles rock

Abstract : The purpose of this article is to interpret the socio-anthropological meaning of the energetic and of the aesthetic process of anger in the rock music. We shall define, at first, the rock music, in the broad sense, in a structural way and by its creative state of mind. Then, we shall speak about the notion of aesthetics of the anger; the choleric energy will be conceived as a phenomenon that must be inevitably sublimated to enter on the social scene. Secondly, we shall see that this sublimation of the rage is structured around a philosophy of the ordo amoris. This latter point will permit to re-configure the functions and the structure of the rage in the expression and the rock music’s creation. We shall analyze, in the third part, some illustrative examples.
