Issue 08 – Reality

Num°08 REALITY
numero8

 

REALISM WITHOUT REALITY?

EDITORIAL

In recent months, the philosophical and political debates have been characterized by an exorbitant frequency of the term “realism.” As usual, the suffix “-ism” is used to indicate “‘doctrines or attitudes’ (realism, heroism, …) or ‘physical or moral qualities or affections’ (alcoholism, … egoism).” The case is in fact that of a debate concerning the attitude that one should have with respect to reality. First of all, reality is to be taken seriously, it is an inescapable given with which we must come to terms. Amanda Berry, the young woman from Cleveland, was really kidnapped and kept captive with the other women for ten years. Unfortunately, this is not a product of the imagination. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 07 – Economy/Economics

Num°07 ECONOMY
07

GRATEFUL TO ECONOMY

Editorial

As a real process, economy is among the most meaningful forms of worldlization of human beings. To have a world always means also to work. Hence, the attitude toward economy can never be separated from the attitude toward the world in general. As there can be a Weltverneinung, a denial of the world, likewise there can be a denial of the economic forms that, time after time, worldlization assumes. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 06 – Saturation

Num°06 SATURATION
numero 06 – saturazione

 

The Age of the Plug

Editorial

We have decided to devote this issue to the concept of “saturation” because we think that saturation is both a widespread feeling and a concept under shock, a concept that must be rethought. As feeling, “saturation” designates something like being fed up. It is a condition of light submersion that is however sufficient to make one drown, as in the beautiful photographs by Alban Grosdidier. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 05 – Modesty/Shame

Num°05 SHAME
numero6

MODUS IN REBUS:

EROS, POLITICS, AND MODESTY

EDITORIAL

It is not moralism when we remark that, in the case of politicians, an evident absence of modesty or shame in the private sphere tends to indicate a lack of sense of limits, that is, of reality, which can be easily accompanied with an arrogant and tyrannical attitude. Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 04 – Sophists

Num°04 SOPHISTS
numero4

DIFFERENTLY SOPHISTS:

DOUBLE BREASTED SUITS AND TANK TOP T-SHIRTS

EDITORIAL

(translated by Silvia Benso)

For this issue of SpazioFilosofico, we have chosen the theme “Sophists” because when it comes to marking the urgency of a rethinking, such a theme seems to us to be more precise than the subject “Truth.” Leggi tutto »

 

Issue 03 – Violence

Num°03 VIOLENCE

CRIMINALS IN GLORY

EDITORIAL

(Translated by Silvia Benso)

Violence is a difficult phenomenon to think of. This is possibly so, one could argue, because violence is the place of the irruption of blind reality, void of all symbolic mediations — violence would amount to an escape from language, and therefore language would have a hard time understanding violence within its own forms.

Issue 02 – Italy

Num°02 ITALY

NEED FOR ITALY

(translated by Silvia Benso)

The current issue of Spaziofilosofico (May 2011) has Italy for its theme. It is our way of saying “Happy Birthday, Italy!” on her 150th anniversary.

We have tried to offer a phenomenology of Italy; we have tried, as it were, to catch as if by surprise the essence (if there is one) of Italy in a scene, a fragment, a situation, an image, a landscape, a book, a concept… Leggi tutto »
