The Concept of Synthesis according to Hegel


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 »

Festivals: Meaning and Fullness of the Experience of the Finite

Painting of King Ramesses III from the Tomb of Khaemwaset

Metaphysics and the Time of Festivals


The essay centers on the connection between truth and time. The originarily tragic constitution of such a connection undergoes a turn in the birth of metaphysical thought. Metaphysical thought is here presented as a form of thinking that unfolds entirely within the path of the skeptical, Socratic principle of “knowing not to know” and unrolls ideally in a time without duration, a time unrepresentable to consciousness, a merely logical time.

No Happiness without Freedom, No Freedom without Happiness: Adorno’s Concept of Fortune

Num°12 LUCK

At the center of Theodor W. Adorno’s critical theory is a systematically thought out concept of happiness. This concept is however not sustained coherently; rather, it is presented in a variety of sometimes paradoxical aphorisms that simultaneously claim the possible presence and the real absence of happiness.

The Rationality of the Actual


The identity of rational and actual is placed by Hegel within an ethical-political context, yet its general meaning is ontological. It indicates that the actuality of the finite has its truth in the logical and conceptual determinations of the Idea. In this sense, in its essence the world has a logical-conceptual nature. This general ontological meaning is no longer acceptable for the contemporary philosophical consciousness. After the end of the metaphysical idea of substantial reason, the unity of actual and rational can be understood in a more limited and weakened sense. Our rationality cannot be considered only as a property of the subjective nature of the individual, but as the product of a learning process that has its basis in the social space of reasons. Although the world remains independent of our knowledge, nevertheless our knowledge of it finds its condition of possibility in social reason.


The Dreams of Finance explained with the Dreams of Metaphysics


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.
