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.

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.

Complex Time for Consciousness and Creativity in Music

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
mazzola

In this paper, I argue that complex time (with real plus imaginary components) could be a key to some of the most virulent problems in the artistic reality of music, namely the nature of artistic consciousness and creativity, especially in the performing perspective of music. The performing musician faces a complex combination of memory, technique, gestures, and the balance in the famous temporal καιρός between past and future moments. Successful musical performance is a highly creative and complex activity. Leggi tutto »

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

The ultimate expression of Hegel’s conception of synthesis can be found in his mature works on logic. This logic, however, has its concrete foundations in the reflections developed by Hegel starting with his early studies about the crisis of his own time. In order to understand the problems and the contrasts that characterize his age, Hegel develops the notion of “scission:” Leggi tutto »
