Filosofia dei mondi globali: Conversazioni con Giacomo by Stefano Franchi,Manuela Marchesini

By Stefano Franchi,Manuela Marchesini

«Con il suo appello: “Alle navi, filosofi!”, Nietzsche ha formulato los angeles parola d’ordine della filosofia contemporanea. Tra i pensatori europei di oggi non c’è nessuno che abbia tradotto le sfide della “ragione navigante” in modo così radicale nel linguaggio del presente come Giacomo Marramao. Grazie al suo libro Passaggio a Occidente sappiamo che cosa significhi parlare filosoficamente della globalizzazione.»
Peter Sloterdijk

«Il lavoro di Giacomo Marramao è tra i maggiori contributi al dibattito filosofico di oggi.»
Étienne Balibar

«Lo stile intellettuale straordinariamente innovativo di Giacomo Marramao ha allargato gli orizzonti di pensiero della vasta schiera dei suoi ammiratori.»
Homi Bhabha

Un pensiero all’altezza della globalizzazione, ossia in grado di rimodulare le categorie necessarie a comprendere il mutamento di scala che ha sovvertito il nostro spazio-tempo: così, riconoscendole l. a. rara qualità di novum filosofico, è stata subito accolta los angeles riflessione che Giacomo Marramao ha dispiegato nel 2003 in Passaggio a Occidente. los angeles sua risonanza ha valicato ambiti disciplinari e altri confini, mentre il titolo stesso assurgeva a espressione emblematica del transito – costitutivo di un’epoca – verso approdi glocalizzati e mondi plurali affacciati tra le pieghe di sfasature temporali. Negli anni, il saggio ha through through aggiornato il proprio osservatorio teoretico-politico, e nel 2012 con l. a. traduzione inglese, condotta sulla nuova edizione del 2009, ha raggiunto un pubblico planetario. Lo testimoniano le «voci» qui raccolte, che entrano nel vivo delle tesi di Marramao e sanno farsi ascoltare are available in un simposio greco. L’oggetto del dibattito è consistent withò attualissimo. Riguarda los angeles trama lacerata dell’egemonia occidentale, drammaticamente incapace di produrre una società a partire dall’economia di mercato, e le forme in cui un orizzonte è ricostruibile, o almeno perlustrabile. In dialogo stringente con i suoi interlocutori, Marramao ha l’occasione di ridefinire ancora una volta i contorni dell’universalismo della differenza, che destituisce l’identità dal rango privilegiato che si period riservata, assegna una funzione strategica alla politica della traduzione, considera il conflitto una «dimensione cruciale e generativa», integra los angeles razionalità comunicativa con l. a. narrazione. Nella convinzione che il destino della totalità sia l’incompiutezza, e l. a. sintesi solo una «formula insatura».

Montesquieu : les «Lettres persanes»: De l'anthropologie à by Céline Spector

By Céline Spector

Satire sociale, conte oriental, roman épistolaire, pamphlet philosophique : les Lettres persanes sont plus qu’un brillant morceau d’ironie. Dès son œuvre de jeunesse, Montesquieu a posé les fondements d’une typologie des régimes qui articule l’anthropologie et l. a. politique. Le lien social ne peut être le même dans les républiques où règne l’amour de l. a. patrie, dans les monarchies régies par l’honneur, et dans le despotisme où los angeles crainte fait taire toutes les autres passions. Pourtant, par-delà l. a. différence entre servitude et liberté, en Orient comme en Occident, les passions et les intérêts corrompent un pouvoir qui informe en retour les modes de sociabilité. los angeles tyrannie de l’opinion s’oppose certes à los angeles tyrannie domestique et politique comme l. a. violence à l. a. politesse ; mais los angeles ardour du pouvoir engendre une forme de servitude volontaire qui, elle, semble universelle.

A l. a. lumière de trois logiques (apparence, contrast, domination), cette étude se suggest donc de mettre en lumière l. a. dynamique passionnelle qui distingue gouvernements modérés et gouvernements violents, esclaves et citoyens, soumission aveugle et participation volontaire.

Telle est l. a. leçon de los angeles fantasy : Montesquieu rappelle aux Modernes que, même si los angeles vertu politique est selected du passé, les stipulations institutionnelles de los angeles liberté sont indissociables des manières et des mœurs.
