The concupiscence is a term whose theological origin indicates the Désir Excessif of the significant pleasures. One finds in I Jean 2 , a 16 judgment of the concupiscence in three forms: the covetousness of the flesh ( concupiscentia carnis ), the covetousness of the eyes ( concupiscentia oculorum is ), and the pride of the life (known perbia vitae quae not is ex Patre sed ex mundo is ). The current language tends to reduce the word within the meaning of Libido or sexual desire.
In book I of the City of God , Saint Augustin seems to refer to this passage by condemning in its turn the desire to dominate ( libido dominandi ). The Christian tradition compares the concupiscence to the “hearth of the sin” ( concupiscentiam vel fomitem ), consequence of the Original sin .
In the Thoughts , Pascal quotes the epistle of Jean but by reformulating it in the terms of Augustin: libido sentiendi, libido sciendi, libido dominandi'.
