The idea of an agreement with the devil precedes Faust. This is not a road to deal with people, to pretend to do them with other beings. The idea of an agreement with a dangerous God must have formed in human minds shortly after its invention, so it is difficult to know what the Faustsche pact is affected. A deal with the devil doesn`t mean there`s satanic worship! An agreement is an agreement between the opponents. Faust is independent; Faust does not worship the gods, if at all, perhaps he would like to overcome them or become himself a.1 He would not worship the devil. Faust`s pact with Mephisto (circa 1840), by Julius Nisle.The pacts with the devil are signed in blood, which means that the person concerned is the object that is the subject of a tender, and that this is not an ordinary agreement. Directed by René Clair, 1950 – A somewhat comic adaptation with Michel Simon as Mephistopheles/Faust as an old man and Gérard Philipe in a fist that turned into a young man. „Every remarkable historical era will have its own fist,“ Kierkegaard wrote. Our challenge today is that we are all, to some extent, in a fist link. We are tormented by politicians who provide simple answers to complex problems, especially when these simple answers are empty promises. Legend warns us against the cult of the ego, the seductions of glory and the celebration of power.
These are hollow and ephemeral triumphs; indeed: „What is the point of a human being to win the whole world, but to lose his soul?“ First of all, faustus can be a spirit of form and substance. Second, may Mephistophilis be his servant and be offered by him. Third, what mephistophilis must do for him and bring him. Fourth, whether invisible in his room or house. Finally, that he will appear to Jean Faustus at all times, in what form and form he wants. I, Jean Faustus de Wittenberg, doctor, give body and soul through these gifts to Lucifer, the prince of the Orient, and to his minister Mephistophilis, and I also recognize to them that twenty-four years have passed, and that these articles, written, are inviolable, full power to bring or carry the body and soul of jeans-fist in question, flesh, blood, in their hero. Faust said to Gretchen: „My sweet, believe me, what is called intellect / Is often depth and vanity,“ and almost every iteration of the legend underlines this disillusionment: it is The Manfred of Byron who „recognizes the fatal truth, / The tree of knowledge is not that of life.“ Intellectual aspirations isolated Faust and gave him no wisdom: „What we need, we don`t know/ And what we know is useless information.“ Even if the search for knowledge is a success, it evokes dark forces, as in Frankenstein.
