La heurística de el Autómaton aristotélico en fenómenos de recurrencia cíclica del sector inmobiliario y financiero

Diego Alberto Beltran


This paper is aimed to analyze the hermeneutics possibilities of the concept Automaton applied to the explanation of some type of cyclic recurrence phenomena in the Economics of nancial and real estate market. On the other hand, the heuristic value of this concept is stood out in relation with the recurrent perspective of the story of Louis Auguste Blanqui. The main hypothesis points out that the cycles of real estate growth of the construction and subsequent nancial crisis occur in a frame of lack of purpose or of nal cause; according to the Aristotelian perspective. The updating of the Aristotelian perspective or the interpretive turn we propose is that this lack of purpose must be seen as an impossibility of transcending or overcoming the constant reiteration of those cycles. This impossibility of transcendence is due to the progressive loss, on the part of the society of consumption, of the legal notion of limit. According to the dialogue between Book II of Aristotle’s Physics and the text of Louis Auguste Blanqui Eternity through the stars we propose that what is reiterated in vain is not an excrescence parallel to the scheme of four Aristotelian causes but that all human historical time is Automaton. That is to say, the text of Blanqui gives us the possibility of transforming the Aristotelian concept Automaton into a notion of greater heuristic value that can analyze the cyclic recurrence immanent or incapable of surpassing itself. For the two hypotheses developed has been key the theoretical perspective provided by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari in his studies on capitalism.
