Reflexividades. A atividade do amador

Abstract : This contribution provides an account of taste and amateurs' practices as an activity, a meaningful accomplishment, with its tricks and bricolages, its gestures and objects, its places and medias. Taste is a performance, a problematic modality of attachment to the world. Playing, listening, tasting, climbing, drinking wine..., all those activities amount to more than the actualization of a taste already there. They are redefined during the action, with a result that is partly uncertain. In such a pragmatist conception, amateurs' attachments and practices are understood as a collective technique, whose analysis shows the way we sensitize ourselves, to things, to ourselves, to situations and to moments, while simultaneously, reflexively controlling how those feelings might be shared and discussed with others.
