Leia o texto a seguir e responda às questões 01 e 02.

A wave of anger is sweeping the cities of the world. The protests have many different origins. In Brazil people rose up against bus fares, in Turkey against a building project. Indonesians have rejected higher fuel prices. In the euro zone they march against austerity, and the Arab spring has become a permaprotest against pretty much everything. Yet just as in 1848, 1968 and 1989, when people also found a collective voice, the demonstrators have much in common. In one country after another, protesters have risen up with bewildering speed. They tend to be ordinary, middle-class people, not lobbies with lists of demands. Their mix of revelry and rage condemns the corruption, inefficiency and arrogance of the folk in charge. Nobody can know how 2013 will change the world – if at all. In 1989 the Soviet empire teetered and fell. But Marx’s belief that 1848 was the first wave of a proletarian revolution was confounded by decades of flourishing capitalism and 1968 did more to change sex than politics. Even now, though, the inchoate significance of 2013 is discernible. And for politicians who want to peddle the same old stuff, news is not good.

Although reports circulated among Beethoven’s friends that he was constantly in love, he tended to choose unattainable women – noble, married or both. In a famous letter to an ‘Immortal Beloved’ (presumably never sent and now dated at 1812), he expressed his conflicting feelings for the woman who may have been the only person ever to reciprocate his declarations. The long-debated riddle of her identity was solved beyond reasonable doubt in 1977 by American musicologist Maynard Solomon, who identified her as Antonie Brentano, the wife of a Frankfurt merchant and a mother of four. Possibly, Beethoven’s sense of virtue and fear of marriage contributed to his running away from this relationship.

3. Considere as seguintes declarações.
I. Segundo relatos, Beethoven constantemente se apaixonava por mulheres casadas ou nobres, sem jamais ter sido correspondido.
II. Beethoven temia o casamento e freqüentemente se apaixonava por mulheres inacessíveis.
III. Em uma carta datada de 1812, e presumivelmente nunca enviada, Beethoven revela seus sentimentos conflitantes em relação à musicista Antonie Brentano.
IV. Uma das razões para Beethoven ter desistido do seu IV. relacionamento com Antonie Brentano foi o seu elevado senso de virtude.

a) I e II estão corretas.
b) I, II e IV estão corretas.
c) II e III estão corretas.
d) I, III e IV estão corretas.
e) II e IV estão corretas.
Sigmund Freud

‘He opened a window on the unconscious – where he said, lust, rage and repression battle for supremacy – and changed the way we view ourselves.’
There are no neutrals in the Freud wars. Admiration, even downright adulation, on one side; skepticism, even downright disdain, on the other. This is not hyperbole. A psychoanalyst who is currently trying to enshrine Freud in the pantheon of cultural heroes must contend with a relentless critic who devotes his days to exposing Freud as a charlatan.

Peter Gay, in Time
