Após recuperar as condições a que se submetiam os insensatos na modernidade, sobretudo na França, aponta-se a hýbris como relevante no campo da ciência, exemplificando-a mediante o vínculo intertextual de O alienista com Frankenstein, de M. Shelley. Ao concluir, busca-se ilustrar ― após breve paralelo entre Brás Cubas e Simão ― que este personaliza de forma paródica o cientista, figura moldada nos quadros da evolução da história da ciência, que assumiu, a partir do século XIX, valor sem precedentes.2015text (article)application/pdfhttps://dialnet.unirioja.es/servlet/oaiart?codigo=5771547(Revista) ISSN 2446-8088Anamorphosis: Revista Internacional de Direito e Literatura, ISSN 2446-8088, null 1, Nº. 1, 2015 (Ejemplar dedicado a: janeiro-junho), pags. 157-173porLICENCIA DE USO: Los documentos a texto completo incluidos en Dialnet son de acceso libre y propiedad de sus autores y/o editores.
