Eight Theses for the Left

Issue 22 RIGHT and LEFT

The current society is more fragmented than liquid. Differences, which are apparently extolled, end up increasing the isolation and distances among individuals. Fear and resentment are the socially dominating feelings. None of these aspects favors the left which, if it wishes to exit the alternative between losing and being lost, must embark in a rigorous process of identification of its real adversaries.

The Artifice of Grace. The Broken Dream of Modernity

Num°17 GRACE

The essay explores grace starting with modernity, particularly through a confrontation with Schiller and Kleist. Some features of grace emerge: it is an artifact yet it is essential to nature, to which it belongs; it mixes with nature, yet it is effective in the order of the human and freedom without thereby being chosen; nor can it be repeated as natural immediacy. One arrives at the extreme feature of grace as pure artificiality, which is not convincing either. Leggi tutto »

Thank You!



Whether because I have let myself become involved in writing a text in the history of philosophy reduced to a minimum or because of the summer atmosphere that invites to group games, in any event, I have convinced myself that the only way to respond to the surprise of one, even, two (!) issues devoted to festivals/holidays and written on the occasion of an anniversary of mine is to line up the awesome contributions that have been offered to me, reduce them to one single expression, and write a comment on it as if it were a tweet of absolutely no more than 50 words.

Holidays: A Philosophical Gaze

Praise of Idealism

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.
