Faith in Reality: T.S. Eliot and Poetry as an Instrument of Synthetic Knowledge

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Gigli

In this paper I propose to consider synthesis as the starting point of knowledge, instead of the common perception that consider synthesis as the arrival compromise between a series of data. In doing this, I took the poetical experience – specially T.S. Eliot’s experience and his former studies of philosophy – as a paradigm of this process, Leggi tutto »

Transcendental schematism and the problem of synthesis between ‘sense’, ‘sign’ and ‘gesture’

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Baggio

The paper outlines a semiotic approach to the question of synthesis raised by Kantian transcendental schematism regarding the relation between the multiple manifolds and the unity of the concept. In other words, a synthesis between sense and meaning. The general aim is to reflect on the possibility of a quasi-transcendental semiotics, referring to the notion of “gesture” as a synthesis of sensitive experience and logical-semiotic mediation.

The Concept of Synthesis according to Hegel

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Hegel_-_20_Pfennig_-_1970

Poverty and the Test of Experience: A Confrontation between Rilke and Benjamin

Num°20 POVERTY
Schiavoni

This essay focuses particularly on two German authors who, in the first thirty years of the twentieth century (when, starting with Expressionism, a confrontation with social poverty and its origins becomes unavoidable), seem to emerge over all others because of their originality and evocative power with respect to the theme of Armut, namely, Reiner Maria Rilke among the poets and Walter Benjamin among the philosophers.

The Pontifical Elections: Some Historical Considerations and Suggestions for Further Reflection

Num°19 ELECTIONS
Piazzoni

The electoral system through which the popes are elected has peculiar characteristics, which make it difficult to use it as a model for other institutions. Nevertheless, recalling the history of the elections of the bishop of Rome, the oldest example of an electoral institute still in use, could be a stimulus for reflections that are useful even today.

An Ungraspable Democracy: Voting, Elections, and Political Representation In Historical Great Britain

Num°19 ELECTIONS
Torre

A short fragment from Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Contrat social on the behaviour of the English voters and the limits of their participation in parliamentary elections may be a helpful starting point for a survey of some issues regarding the lessons that the historical development of the British electoral practice are likely to teach to the Italian reader who is used to pay some attention to the present debate on the electoral reform.
