Issue 21 – Synthesis

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Copertina

A ROAD TOWARDS A NEW PARADIGM

EDITORIAL

A pivot of philosophical epistemology from Kant onwards, the concept of synthesis in all its practical, theoretical, and methodological meanings does not yet seem to have found a satisfactory description and definition. It is Kant’s merit to have identified in the idea of synthesis – understood as something different from that of mere reversal of the analysis – one of the central questions of philosophy.

Issue 20 – Poverty

Num°20 POVERTY
numero-20

ASPECTS OF POVERTY

EDITORIAL

The essays collected in this issue examine two aspects of poverty: the obscure side of indigence and the luminous side of Franciscan poverty. More than a mere editorial choice, the matter is that of an objective complexity of the term “poverty.” It is hard to think that the relation between the two forms of poverty is simple univocity; that is, that the word “poverty” means the same thing in the two cases. Such an affirmation of univocity would amount to placing despair (indigence) and joy (“the highest poverty”) on an equal level. Leggi tutto »

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »
