LET’S GO RULE

EDITORIAL

One of the reasons for the “democratic fatigue syndrome,” as Van Reybrouck calls it, might be an extreme and paradoxical form of “dis-intermediation.” The latter would consist not in the endorsement of a (real or alleged) leader to the detriment of some intermediary units (churches, unions, parties, etc.) but rather in the coveted elimination of the duality of representatives and represented.

Issue 18 – Seriousness

Num°18 SERIOUSNESS
18_Serietà

SERIOUSNESS IS THE STANDARD OF BOTH ITSELF AND THE FATUOUS

EDITORIAL

True seriousness seems to be always elsewhere than in its natural places – it is neither where it is invoked nor where it appears in the role of an admonishing power, and never where it chastises us with a raised finger, a respectable dress, or a frown of disapproval. Whether individual or collective, emancipatory processes typically affect conceptual references; seriousness is one of them.

The intuition from which we start is that the conceptual crisis affecting seriousness is one of the major features that characterize our time. In this context, by “conceptual crisis” one should understand a condition of extreme vagueness affecting a concept whose task should be instead that of accurately educating individuals to the kind of respect due to reality in all its specific manifestations.

Issue 17 – Grace

Num°17 GRACE
numero-17

CHARME AND CHANCE

EDITORIAL

Grace implies everything and beyond. It is what surprises us, yet it is not the uncanny. It happens in its own time – the favorable time – and manifests itself suddenly. It astonishes, yet it does not frighten us because the consequences of its happening are always an addition of good, an increase in what is positive; feelings of pleasure and joy correspond to this. When it occurs, grace does not take anything away; grace adds, donates, gives. Leggi tutto »

Issue 16 – Action/Agency

Num°16 AGENCY
numero-16

ACTIONS AND THEIR ACTORS

EDITORIAL

To study actions means to thematize that which is most common and hidden; by thematizing it, one discloses its non-obviousness. Every theory of action begins by describing a specific conceptual field, one that is characterized by self-understanding and motivation, within the more general, semantic area having to do with movements, processes, and behaviors.

numero-15

Double Excess

EDITORIAL

Superabundance is appropriate to festivals and holidays. When they are successful, festivals and holidays are meant to go on. Thus, “Spazio Filosofico” continues with the same concept once again, like Scheherazade, who does not stop narrating, and adds ever new contents to her stories. Leggi tutto »

Num°13 EVALUATION
numero13

Evaluation? Yes, But Not This Way!

 Editorial

 

Our society, based on the sharing of information and knowledge, is also an evaluation society. The parents of school age children have the right, for example, to know the criteria on the basis of which grades are given. Almost everywhere this generates evaluation grids. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 12 – Luck

Num°12 LUCK
Numero_12FORTUNA

THE CORE OF FORTUNE

EDITORIAL

The thought of having barely made it, of having been lucky or, on the contrary, really unlucky often comes to mind.
There are circumstances that are lucky and others that are, clearly, unlucky; people who are luckier than others; entire lives that unfold with no major obstacles and rather full of opportunities, and other lives that develop on difficult paths ever since the beginning and where the lack of opportunities is accompanied by serious negative events. Carlo S. died the very day when the end of the war was announced—he was standing on the roof of his house when he was hit by a bullet shot in a celebration for which he himself was dancing with joy. In this case, we may say that it was a fatality; for him, it was definitely bad luck. Leggi tutto »

The Necessary Space

Editorial

Had Heidegger not become for some time now (and perhaps for a while longer) an embarrassing presence for thought, one could have invited a reflection on Space (in philosophy, in science, in architecture, etc.) via some of his dynamic tautologies such as: Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 10 – Education

Num°10 EDUCATION
numero10

On Current Education

Editorial

What urges us to question the concept of education is its spreading to all realms of reality, its losing the well-defined boundaries that characterized it previously, its self-presentation as unavoidable and at the same time as extremely problematic. To educate oneself and others everywhere, at all stages in life, is seen as a priority that is justified with great reasons, most of them negative, tied to crises of various nature ultimately having to do with trust and trustworthiness.

The Parties That Are Not There

Editorial

1. Schuld sind immer die Anderen

In Germany these days one can see a Green Party’s electoral poster. On it, Frau Merkel is pointing her finger, like a young teacher, onto the head of Philipp Rösler, FDP President, Vice-Chancellor, and minister of Economy. Leggi tutto »

REALISM WITHOUT REALITY?

EDITORIAL

In recent months, the philosophical and political debates have been characterized by an exorbitant frequency of the term “realism.” As usual, the suffix “-ism” is used to indicate “‘doctrines or attitudes’ (realism, heroism, …) or ‘physical or moral qualities or affections’ (alcoholism, … egoism).” The case is in fact that of a debate concerning the attitude that one should have with respect to reality. First of all, reality is to be taken seriously, it is an inescapable given with which we must come to terms. Amanda Berry, the young woman from Cleveland, was really kidnapped and kept captive with the other women for ten years. Unfortunately, this is not a product of the imagination. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 07 – Economy/Economics

Num°07 ECONOMY
07

GRATEFUL TO ECONOMY

Editorial

As a real process, economy is among the most meaningful forms of worldlization of human beings. To have a world always means also to work. Hence, the attitude toward economy can never be separated from the attitude toward the world in general. As there can be a Weltverneinung, a denial of the world, likewise there can be a denial of the economic forms that, time after time, worldlization assumes. Leggi tutto »

The Age of the Plug

Editorial

We have decided to devote this issue to the concept of “saturation” because we think that saturation is both a widespread feeling and a concept under shock, a concept that must be rethought. As feeling, “saturation” designates something like being fed up. It is a condition of light submersion that is however sufficient to make one drown, as in the beautiful photographs by Alban Grosdidier. Leggi tutto »
