We can understand this determination in two ways: first, the 'culture of die baroque' (Maravall) is a collective and sociological expression of padiology that is historically restricted to the expression of die epoch; or second, die ideological aspect of the 'Culture' becomes, from the period of the baroque onward, inseparable from its power to cultivate pathological effects in me psychological realm of the modern individual (similar to the psychoanalytic sense of neurosis). The second aspect is implicit in Maravall's attempt to trace the sensible appearance of a notion of force whose particular manifestation in the baroque spectacle indicates an alteration of the experience that underlies the classical topic of furor, which now corresponds to the more modern concept of alienation (which appears in both Freud and Marx).

Boundary sets free in the unconcealed [a setting free which can also be understood as a 'springing forth']; by its contour in the Greek light the mountain stands in its towering and repose. 47 Here, we might see a corresponding notion of the energeia released by the primitive manifestation of the baroque sublime, its peculiar nature, the modifications it undergoes in the cultural experience, and the psychological effects that are the result of its appearance. 48 The function of the aesthetic presentation, as it is described by both Maravall and Heidegger, addresses conflicting senses that belong to the 'working over of boundaries' - perceptual, linguistic, cultural, existential and including the absolute boundary of death as such.

An experience of temporality marked by the themes of novelty, variety and multiplicity • a loss of distinct perception of the central figure or action • the physical participation of the spectator in the presentation of the artwork through an emotional feeling of dizziness or swooning (literally, of being overpowered by the spectacle) • finally, a heightened sense of enthusiasm, delight or marvel (meraviglia) And yet, we still have not found a sufficient explanation of the two fundamental traits behind the determination of 'the hegemony of space' itself in the two conflicting versions of the baroque.
