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 »

“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.

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.

In the Roman de la Rose, one of the masterpieces of medieval French literature, begun by Guillaume de Lorris around 1230 and completed by Jean de Meun between 1270 and 1280, the allegory of Fortune has a prominent place, especially in the second part of the work, where more than two thousand verses are devoted to her personification.

Reality and Poverty

Num°08 REALITY
ChildSoldier-300x250

The essay examines the myth of Prometheus and Epimetheus narrated by Plato in the Protagoras and investigates what in it remains insufficient (sophistic) when considered from Plato’s point of view. The answer is that in the myth, being is without remedy and technique provides a remedy for it. Plato seems instead to suggest the hypothesis that being itself is a kind of technique. There is no being without an addition (a prosthesis) of goodness. The remedy is thus not simply an external addition suggested by the pressing practical needs of humans; rather, it is a characteristic of being itself, and simply for this—in the form of culture—it is also an anthropological feature.

 

The Trascendentals of Work

Num°01 WORK

A misunderstanding should be eliminated: that is, that work and rights can be separated. Those who assert such a theory think that reality is made of indipendent layers. According to them, it is always possible to remove the upper layer (in this case, rights) and keep the lower (in this case, labor/work). Rights (for example,  the non-precariousness of work) are an addition, whereas work can exist also independently: the addition is unessential. The thesis I argue for in this essay is, on the contrary, that the addition is intrinsic and originary. Leggi tutto »
