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.

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.

Ethics of Space (A Topological Reflection)

Num°11 SPACE
la cognizione del dolore

The author’s intention in this essay is not to explain the “concept” of space but rather understand the experience out of which such a concept is formed moving from the “originary subjects” of this experience as well of the experience of movement and time that are its necessary correlates.

Praise of Idealism

Num°08 REALITY
Image by Lauren Guilmette

In a society built on concepts of appearance and virtuality, the very invocation of “reality” seems to have an already thaumaturgic power. Yet, to think that embracing reality as a critical power may produce enlightenment is especially naive. The virtual world cannot be perforated by injections of realism but rather by opposing the appearance of the inessential with an ethical ideal that works for a transformation of society. Philosophy has an intrinsic idealistic vocation. The idealists are not naive individuals who find refuge in the construction of an ideal world for their own use and benefit; on the contrary, the idealists are those who do not find themselves at ease in the real world and therefore envisage, in an act of freedom, how the world ought to be.

 

Economy, Politics, and Society in the Time of the Infinite Great Crisis

Num°07 ECONOMY
cohousing

This essay offers a management scholar’s perspective on the themes of the current crisis, the remedies in terms of monetary and economic politics that are being enacted, and the role of political economics and of economists in the recent experience. The necessarily simplified analysis is done by following a historical route that moves from the liberalist economic thought starting in the seventies. Through the analysis of its evolution in the nineties and in the first decade of the current millennium, the essay proposes an interpretation of the role of the economists in particular and of their relation with politics as well as the need for an overcoming of the current condition. The connection between economy, society, and politics is interpreted within such a perspective in the quest for the relation with Reason.

 

The Dreams of Finance explained with the Dreams of Metaphysics

Num°07 ECONOMY
Kant

The recent economic crisis has called a strong attention to the problem of financial speculation and its disastrous consequences for real economy. But what is “speculation”? This word has its origin within the philosophical field: starting from this remark, this essay questions the relation between the philosophical and the economical concepts of speculation, trying to show their common “metaphysical” structure. Kant’s critique of speculation is then taken as guide for a philosophical critique of economic speculation and its financial Schwärmerei.

 

Truth and Authority

Num°04 SOPHISTS

Political constructivists (such as John Rawls) and pluralists (such as Bernard Williams) refrain from using truth in political matters and moral disagreements. They agree with relativists on the “polemical conception of truth,” which takes moral truths to enjoy only a local kind of normativity. Leggi tutto »

 

Work as Knowledge. A Semiotic Look

Num°01 WORK

“Work” is usually understood as an applicative or derivative field of some more fundamental theoretical philosophy. The first task of this paper is to show that this conception is due to a Kantian heritage that never got rid of the distinction between theory and practice because it never questioned the analytic/synthetic distinction proposed by the German thinker.
