Cani di paglia (Italian Edition) by John Gray,Stefania Coluccia,Marcello Monaldi

By John Gray,Stefania Coluccia,Marcello Monaldi

Premio Nonino 2017 a “un Maestro del nostro tempo”

MOTIVAZIONE
Il filosofo John grey ha ricoperto cattedre prestigiose alla Oxford college e alla London university of Economics. Nell’ultimo decennio, tuttavia, è diventato anche una delle voci più autorevoli del pensiero contemporaneo. In una serie di testi straordinari, molto letti e controversi grey ha contestato presupposizioni da lungo consolidate nel pensiero sociale e nella storia politica. Nel fare ciò, ha anche predetto eventi politici e sociali recenti quali l. a. crisi economica del 2007 e anche l’attuale avvento di governi populisti.

L’uomo è un animale come tutti gli altri, questa è los angeles difficile eredità di Darwin, un’eredità che risulta ingombrante non solo consistent with gli umanisti o i cristiani ma anche in line with tutti coloro che non rinunciano all’idea di poter governare razionalmente, consapevolmente il cammino evolutivo dell’umanità.
Cadute le illusioni delle utopie politiche, svanita l. a. fede in un aldilà ultraterreno, l’antico slancio prometeico alimenta oggi i sogni della tecnologia e della scienza. Scegliere il proprio patrimonio genetico, aspirare all’immortalità criogenica, rinunciare al corpo in step with entrare nella realtà virtuale: i miti sono in fondo gli stessi, segnati dall’inevitabile fede nella libertà e dall’aspirazione al controllo totale di sé e del mondo. Ma libertà e controllo sono in keeping with grey due fatali illusioni, radicate nell’illusione più grande di essere noi umani diversi dagli animali, che non hanno bisogno di scopi, finalità, progetti in keeping with stare al mondo.
In compagnia dei grandi maestri dello scetticismo e del pessimismo occidentali, il viaggio letterario di grey attraverso le stazioni della cultura moderna e contemporanea approda all’antica sapienza taoista, che ci apre le porte dell’accettazione del limite come possibilità di godimento pieno, ci insegna l. a. natura dell’agire morale come gesto esatto e distaccato, ci mostra l’inconsistenza della nostra suggestion di realtà.
Uno sguardo poetico come unico antidoto all'illusione più pericolosa, quella di poterci mai liberare dalle illusioni; un invito a guardare, con quieta vertigine, allo spettacolo della vita e a sentire in questo il compiersi del suo unico scopo possibile.

«Una vera rarità, un’opera di filosofia contemporanea priva di gergo filosofico, accessibile e di importanza fondamentale in step with il mondo in rapida evoluzione nel quale viviamo».
Will Self

«Cani di paglia sfida tutte le nostre convinzioni su cosa voglia dire essere uomini, e ci mostra che tutte ci deluderanno. Chi siamo e perché siamo qui? Le risposte di grey lasceranno l. a. maggior parte di noi profondamente scossi. Una guida essenziale al nuovo millennio».
J.G. Ballard

«Il notevole libro di John grey ci mostra cosa sarebbe los angeles nostra vita senza l. a. distrazione delle consolazioni».
Adam Phillips
