Description:

The family in Europe at the turn of the 19th and the 20th century

Abstract:

The objective of the paper is to describe the cultural changes in the customs in the 19th century. The analysis of moralistic treaties and parental guidebooks, perceived as important cultural texts, allows investigation of the process of changes taking place in – what is called – the sexual pedagogy. The turn of the 18th and the 19th centuries can be interpreted as a visible increase in the interest in human sexuality at the level of a paraenetic narrative. Thus, a moral discourse is combined with the discourse of hygiene. From the perspective of cultural history, special attention should be paid to the increased popularity of the category of shame understood as a regulator of social bonds (including family bonds). The transformation of intimacy in the culture of the 19th century seems to be important and interesting evidence of the formation of double morality (overt and covert) as well as of the functioning of conflicting tendencies for tabooing and, at the same time, speaking about sexual experiences.
