The Origin Seen as Common Matter Twentieth-century theories of form and organic form show a hard ten- sion between the idea of the origin as appropriative dynamics – in which the dynamic element refers to a metaphysics of force, and the form-centring is just defined as appropriation – and the idea of the origin as a ‘common matter’. The essay explains these two theoretical options discussing these opposite polarities in biology and analysing some cinematic examples taken from Ejzenštejn’s thought on Disney’s Silly Symphonies.

Abstract

The Origin Seen as Common Matter Twentieth-century theories of form and organic form show a hard ten- sion between the idea of the origin as appropriative dynamics – in which the dynamic element refers to a metaphysics of force, and the form-centring is just defined as appropriation – and the idea of the origin as a ‘common matter’. The essay explains these two theoretical options discussing these opposite polarities in biology and analysing some cinematic examples taken from Ejzenštejn’s thought on Disney’s Silly Symphonies.
