Right and Left: Two Concepts Suspended Between Essences, Ideal Types and Conventions

Issue 22 RIGHT and LEFT
Tarchi1

For decades, in the philosophical as well as the historical, political theory, and sociological fields, a debate has developed on two related albeit distinct themes: namely, on the one hand, the cultural and ideological contents that should be associated with the notions of “the right” and “the left” and on the other, the ability of these two concepts to represent the cleavages that currently determine political affiliations and electoral behaviors.

The Right and the Left: An Asymmetrical Difference

Issue 22 RIGHT and LEFT
Disegno di Beppe Giacobbe

The distinction between the right and the left is not at all outdated. Currently, we certainly live in a time of confusion, when the transition from one side of the line to the other seems to be more fluid than usual. Even though the distinction is at times porous, even evanescent, it would be wiser avoiding asserting that two mountains connected by a valley are one and the same mountain, as Goethe suggests.

Time for a New Paradigm

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Maddalena

Kant’s definition of the distinction between analysis and synthesis and his attempts to find an a priori synthetic type of judgment have been criticized several times during the past two centuries. However, successive amendments and critiques failed at both giving an account of the Kantian distinction that would fit with the development of knowledge and science or to finding a serious alternative to the explicative power of the distinction.

Towards a Synthetic Resistance in Mathematical Philosophy

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
Zalamea2

We study the concept of border/frontier under non-analytical perspectives (reverse, continuity, mediation), and we situate Riemann’s surfaces (1850), Peirce’s continuum (1890) and Grothendieck’s categorical archetypes (1960) under those three perspectives. We further present sheaf logic as a mediation between logical (analytical) and topological (synthetical) polarities, which helps to better understand some border/frontier problems, and to expand reason beyond purely linguistic constraints.

Poverty, Responsibility Practices, and Social Welfare

Num°20 POVERTY
Poverty

This paper addresses the problem of domestic poverty in the Global North. There is a presumption that healthy, capable adults are responsible for meeting their own needs. Still, we must ask when this presumption is defeated and the state becomes responsible for providing welfare payments and services. Leggi tutto »

“Et Coram Patre Le Si Fece Unito”: Reflections on Poverty and its Equivocations

Num°20 POVERTY
Cuniberto

The theme of poverty as spiritual virtue, as radical renunciation to what belongs to oneself and, in the end, as renunciation to one’s own very self is already present in Greek thought, which alludes to it for example through Plato’s image of Penia, Eros’ mother. In the Christian tradition, we find paupertas spiritu, the spiritual poverty mentioned in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Leggi tutto »

Poverty Upside Down

Num°20 POVERTY
Guglielminetti

Christianity introduces a dangerous shift in the order of categories so that poverty ends up assuming a role similar to that played by substance. Poverty becomes the central category to which all others make reference. Health, strength, reason, and success remain part of substance, but substance, the essence, by itself is inessential.
