  • Tra Memoria e Oblio. Antropologia e Storia

    • Authors: Angela Ales Bello
      Pages: 3 - 16
      Abstract: Starting from J.P. Ricoeur’s book La mémoire, l’histoire, l’oubli I reflect on the meaning of history. Because history deals with the human beings’ events, I propose to analyse the human being in itself and in relationship with others, particularly regarding the difficult question of "time". Husserl’s phenomenological anthropology permits the description of the phenomenon of time and the reasons of remembering and forgetting when one reconstructs what happens in the past. Psychic and intellectual aspects (i.e. hyletics and noetics) of the human being are involved in the way in which the events are told. Husserl enters in the same field analysed by Freud giving his own interpretation of memory and oblivion. In this sense time, as past, present and future, and history are deeply interconnected, but memory of the past in itself is not sufficient to understand contemporary historiography, as Ricoeur underscores, it needs documents as substitutes of lived memory.

  • Ricostruzione, interpretazione, storicità. Ancora sul rapporto tra
           psicoanalisi e storia

    • Authors: Giuseppe Cacciatore
      Pages: 17 - 28
      Abstract: This essay is a reflection on the possibility of hybridization between history and philosophy, but also between history and psychology. When we think about what might be the common areas of historical research and psychological research and, in particular, psychoanalytic research, we usually think of the categories of construction and interpretation, but also those of narration and temporality. The possible link between the "comprising psychology" of Dilthey and Freudian psychoanalysis is the common goal of understanding the human spirit in all its complexity and unity of thought and instinct. This might be called "critical historicism". A critical historicism that just inspired by the principles of psychoanalysis can manifest its fundamental character: the rejection of any vision of history as a relentless process towards perfection and well-being of humanity, as a place of linear and incontrovertible progress accomplishment.

  • La passività della carne come pietas del pensare. Tra Ricoeur e
           Henry.

    • Authors: Marco Casucci
      Pages: 29 - 54
      Abstract: When in the last section of Oneself as Another Paul Ricoeur sums the results of his investigations concerning the theme of the otherness, he reaches the question of the flesh as a central point, which should permit to highlight the possibility of an ontology of the self. It’s in that context that Ricoeur explicitly recalls the name of Michel Henry and his phenomenology of suffering. Starting from this point, the contribution wants to investigate the possible development of the ricoeurian theme of the self in relationship with the further phenomenology of the incarnation presented by Michel Henry in his last works. This paper, thus, will try to underline the elationship between ipseity and incarnation, in order to analyse the theme of the passivity, one of the most important questions for the "piety of thought" in the contemporary philosophy.

  • Sul nesso misericordia/ricordo. Ancora sulla pietas del pensiero

    • Authors: Pio Colonnello
      Pages: 55 - 69
      Abstract: As is well known, the pietas of thinking as a proprium of hermeneutical reason cannot be found inside the strength of the logos that overcomes the negative and the split dissolving differences into identities. Rather, it is a reconciliation – or justification – not relying on "binding" structures of reason; it is at the same time justification and forgiveness, rehabilitation and rejoicing, meditation and hope, invocation and appeal. Starting from this horizon, the aim of the essay is to retrace the core of the relation between two keywords of our intellectual tradition in the realm of the pietas of thinking. Mercy and memory: the meaning of their bond – perhaps nowadays overshadowed – is evident at the roots of our culture, especially in our common tradition with the early Jewish Christian culture.

  • La costruzione della memoria

    • Authors: Carmine Di Martino
      Pages: 70 - 106
      Abstract: How can we make use of our past and, therefore, how can talk about memory in its full sense? This work aims to identify the constitutive elements of the experience of memory, understood as the possibility of freely and actively using our past - that is, to use it in a different way from infants and animals -, first through the analysis of the Husserlian, phenomenological studies dedicated to memory, and then of experimental psychology. To this purpose, it is crucial the notion of language, not so much conceived of as a predicative structure, but rather in its most originary meaning: as nomination, signification, i.e. symbolized possession of ideal meanings. To remember we need to talk, to have access to the linguistic translation of experience and to the dimension of the "meaning already known". Without being aware of meaning we can not build memories at all.

  • Appunti sulla Parigi di Walter Benjamin: superamento nel moderno e non del
           moderno?

    • Authors: Leonardo V. Distaso
      Pages: 107 - 118
      Abstract: In a speech of 1864 Haussmann has showed his hate for Parisians: they are devoid of roots. The metropolis uproots and bewilders and it's so difficult for the voluntary memory recovering the ancient and eternal sense of the value. Art shelters in the password of the art pour l'art and so it loses its role and contact with society. So that the flâneur can do the historical awakening by the recovering of unvoluntary memory of the correspondances that vivify the metropolis and his historical nature. The surrealism is the chance of this awakening.

  • Lo que no está escrito

    • Authors: Aurora Freijo Corbeira
      Pages: 119 - 132
      Abstract: In order to be a witness, it is necessary to speak. To say not just any word, but a “minor” word, in the manner of Deleuze, one which deterritorializates, one which stands on its own, as Gadamer says, one which speaks truth. That word, which for many is the poetic word, necessarily becomes a political word, and it needs to be delivered from “outside the palace”, according to Pasolini, in the outskirts of power. Such are the words of Agamben —which know of nacked lives—, of Pasolini —which recognize the lights of resistance of the fireflies—, ambiguous words of Herta Müller, and the decolonial ones of Césaire. All of them call to not forget the existence of a inclusive exclusion in our societies, and in the end, of an Auschwitz before and after Auschwitz. Speaking in the manner of liberated Theseus or contemporary Zarathustras, they point to an sphere of resistance, of sacredness, and they summon us to a kind of community, that of the friends of solitude, as Derrida would say, where dwells the memory of barbarians, strangers, and fireflies.

  • El olvido de una pulsión que “retorna”: el caso de Sabina
           Spielrein

    • Authors: Alfonso A. Gracia Gòmez
      Pages: 133 - 149
      Abstract: When it comes to psychoanalysis, there are several ways to broach the issue of forgetfulness and memory. The most habitual one consists in referring to the oblivion of names, a subject which was analysed by Freud in Psychopathology of Everyday Life. The aim of this article is to go beyond, pun intended, to investigate not only the mechanisms of oblivion but the ways in which it can condition and even organize subjectivity. In this regard, the author has analysed the rejection against Freudian thinking due to the stances of Sabina Spielrein. In spite of her almost total lack of awareness, a large part of the most important psychoanalytic concepts would not have developed as they did without the contribution of her captivating theories which left a tacit memento as well as the keys to explain the same psychological mechanisms that were updated in her own oblivion.

  • La logica trascendentale del tempo. Comunicazione e trascendenza in
           Wolfgang Cramer e Karl Jaspers

    • Authors: Luca Guidetti
      Pages: 150 - 175
      Abstract: According to Kant, time has a dual nature: on the one hand, it is the form of the external sense and, along with the space, it serves as a detection criterion of physical objects; on the other hand, it is the form of the internal sense, and, thanks to the schematism, it allows the construction of unitary images of phenomena. But the separation between the two conditions of knowledge, sensibility and intellect, does not guarantee the continuity between the physical and the phenomenical world, making enigmatic the unity of consciousness which should accompany all representations. From two different points of view, related to neokantism and to the philosophy of existence respectively, Wolfgang Cramer and Karl Jaspers try to overcome the Kantian difficulty, focusing on transcendentality of the act of consciousness rather than on its contents. It follows a twofold determination of the subject that, as shown by the same Kant, refers to examples from mathematical thinking. While to Cramer the pure intuition is the tangent of time that, through the act of thought, undergoes a process of integration in the experience, to Jaspers every act of consciousness is tied to an individual existence with its particular temporal dimension. In this sense, Cramer’s “integral of consciousness” does not guarantee the communication because it establishes only a difference in the absolute unity of the act, while, according to Jaspers, the real communication is unity in the difference, i.e. elevation of every single existence to the system of others “personal equations”. From this new logic of communication, related to time and transcendence of existence, arises a transcendental and not intellectual logic that Jaspers calls “rational a-logic”.

  • Il fondamento dell’identità nella dialettica tra memoria e
           ricordo

    • Authors: Paola B. Helzel
      Pages: 176 - 194
      Abstract: Today's society lives in constant worry of losing something, so it seems mandatory looking into the past to find elements of identity and prospects for the future. All of this has resulted in the categorical imperative of keeping and preserve all signs of memory. Memory, indeed, has become the central theme, as in a cultural sphere as in the political debate. Memory, since it is able to preserve and reminding as a vector of senses, is a key condition of humanity. A memory, product of experiences and testimony to the sense of the things done and transmitted, it’s able of becoming a reminder. An act of conscience by which we reconstruct a certain portion of our past. Without memory and reminding there cannot be identity.

  • Sui molteplici usi della pietà

    • Authors: Massimo Marassi
      Pages: 195 - 215
      Abstract: In general, pity has always been conceived as a passion or as a virtue. These are two ways of looking at the concept, which are difficult to conciliate. Heidegger, in particular, considers pity as something which comes into play when the philosopher is asking questions about the beings and about the manifestation of the being. At the same time, he also considers pity as a form of passion. In this case, phenomenology abandons the primacy of intentionality and becomes an exaltation of the pathe. On the other hand, according to a different perspective, pity as a virtue embraces a wide range of experiences, from that of tragedy to solidarity. The latter two make it possible to have an ethics of existence. Pity works a priori, it precedes any question, it prefers justice over knowledge and it is a way of looking at things which needs no plea, no question to understand the necessity of existence.

  • Il pensiero come pietas

    • Authors: Francesco Saverio Trincia
      Pages: 216 - 226
      Abstract: Starting from Vergilius’ “pius Aeneas”, then going through Emmanuel Lévinas’ Autrement qu’etrê ou au-delà de l’essence and Sigmund Freud Vergängligkeit and Zeitgemässes über Krieg und Tod, my claim is that pietas is opposite to any feeling and to any behaviour of arrogance, and is therefore  the courage to face with faith and  without previous assurances the destiny of decadence that affects in the historical  time all of us and what we feel and appreciate as our values of beauty and of perfection in nature and in culture. For Sigmund Freud in particular, to whom I dedicate most interest and attention in the essay, pietas is the acknowledgement of the value of the eternal beauty which should not be in any way diminished by its being consumed by time and history. In spite of its being precarious in the flowing of the historical time, the value of the beauty things, enjoyed by us in any single moment, is for ever. And this pietas toward the precariousness of natural and cultural beauty is furthermore what assures us that not mourning but hope is the last word of mankind.

  • La crisi del pensiero e il ritorno del problema del senso. Riflessioni sul
           significato filosofico della attuale ricerca neuro-cognitiva

    • Authors: Luca Vanzago
      Pages: 227 - 241
      Abstract: This paper addresses the question concerning the crisis of thought from the standpoint of the renewal of interest for the notion of consciousness, produced by the developments in the field of neuroscience. Once a discredited notion, consciousness is making a clamorous comeback which however tends to polarize the debate and resuscitate old metaphysical battles. The neuro-cognitive approach, in particular, while undisputedly producing important contributions, tends to adopt a naïve materialist approach, which impoverishes the complexity of the phenomenon and thus contributes to the propagation of a conception of experience, which is growingly anti-humanistic. Yet other approaches are possible, which at once preserve the importance of scientific research and provide with different categories able to frame the scientific results in more fecund ways. Neuro-phenomenology is the best candidate in this sense, for it focuses on the importance of first-person perspective in a rigorous way.

  • Memoria y ecos. Sobre Walter Benjamin

    • Authors: Manuel E. Vàzquez
      Pages: 242 - 253
      Abstract: Analysis of the way that Walter Benjamin's philosophy goes from Berliner Chronik until Berliner Kindheit um Neunzehnhundert. The analysis takes into account the role of the city, politics and childhood, but fundamentally the role of memory and the passage in their understanding of a visual model to an acoustic model that articulates a coherent and novel way the relationship with the past.

  • L’uomo esiste nella verità

    • Authors: Domenico Venturelli
      Pages: 254 - 281
      Abstract: In human awareness of the mystery of all life, with reference to the thoughts of Nietzsche, Heidegger and Jaspers, the author develops in this paper a personal perspective, which gravitates around the concept of truth understood in his original sense: not the truth depending by assumptions and scientific research's methods which, by appearances, exists even without us, but the truth concerning the full meaning of birth and death, which can not exist without the witness of the one who makes it live, here and now, in the time, in the incarnated form, in communication with others. This is the truth as source which transcends us and yet claims for us, appealing -  in order to exist -  to our freedom:  only in her breath exists the human being.

  • Interpreting Memory, Forgetfulness and Testimony in Theory of Recollection

    • Authors: Ni Yu
      Pages: 282 - 300
      Abstract: The essay is a new attempt to interpret theory of recollection in the context of “the pietas of thinking”. It will explore the different stages of theory of recollection in the Meno with a focus on making enquiry of the conception of episteme. The key conception of episteme is significant in new interpretation of theory of recollection. Its relationship of knowledge and understanding is also decided in the discussion. The essay argues that theory of recollection can be divided into elements of memory, forgetfulness and testimony. Moreover, this division is in accordance with the known elements of mythical story, slave boy demonstration, method of hypothesis in theory of recollection. By making this comparison the value and reason of theory of recollection will be warranted and rediscovered in the new era.

  • El historiador frente al “documento viviente”: La crisis del
           testimonio y la narración del Holocausto

    • Authors: Rafael Pérez Baquero
      Pages: 302 - 322
      Abstract: Our essay deals with the problem regarding the implications that the testimony – as a historiographical source – has for the assumptions of traditional historiography. The theories regarding testimony in the post-war context developed by Dori Laub, Shoshana Felman or Giorgio Agamben, allow us to define testimony as a performative act which affects, on the one hand, the victims who try to reconstruct its torn subjectivity, and, on the other hand, the historian, who is filled with the emotional content derived from this figure. Such condition makes an epistemic requirement impossible: the distance subject-object in the account of the events. Consequently, only the middle voice of the modernist antinarrative allows us to give an account of these events. This methodological imperative disqualifies the autonomy of the historiography from the collective memory.

  • The original position and the rationality of Primo Levi’s shame

    • Authors: Josep E. Corbì
      Pages: 323 - 340
      Abstract: Contrary to what he expected, Primo Levi didn’t experience his life after being released from Auschwitz as cheerful and light-hearted. He – like many other survivors – was haunted by an obscure and solid anguish that he finally identified as springing from a sense of shame or guilt in front of those who were exterminated in the Lager. Levi was unable to either acknowledge his shame as rational or reject it as irrational. This looks, though, like a rather unstable situation calling for some further elucidation. I will thus examine Levi’s shame in light of the dominant conception of practical deliberation and, more specifically, in view of the the role that John Rawls ascribes to the original position. Firstly, I will stress how Rawls’ use of the original position as a representational device to the determine the principles of justice relies a certain assumption (i.e., the Matching Assumption) that Levi’s experience calls into question and, secondly, I will identify two assumptions (i.e, The Control Assumption and The Third-Party Assumption) that are constitutive of Rawls’ conception of rationality and such that they may account for Levi’s reluctance to acknowledge the rationality of his shame. Once these constraints are brought out, I will argue that Levi’s experience provides serious reason to call them into question inasmuch as it invites the existence of a fundamental asymmetry between the first- and the third-person perspectives (sec. 3-5). I will thus conclude that Primo Levi could coherently have regarded his blame as rational, even though no third party is in a position to blame him. This challenge to the primacy of the third-person perspective will provide, in turn, an additional argument against Rawls’ original position and the dominant conception of practical deliberation.

  • Custodire la memoria, contrastare l’oblio. L’eccesso del male e la
           problematicità del perdono

    • Authors: Giuseppe Lissa
      Pages: 341 - 370
      Abstract: This philosophical essay considers the themes of memory and oblivion from a concrete situation: the experience of World War II and Nazism. On the one hand, we need to remember those events, in particular the Shoah, and that means preserve its memory; on the other, it is necessary to counteract the oblivion of those moments. Of course, preserve the memory and fight oblivion are two sides of the same coin. The author traces a path that starts from a personal memory, a visit to Auschwitz, through and interrogating the history of philosophy around the theme of memory, from Plato to Ricoeur, until the most current theoretical considerations, such as the reflection on the European Union. It must be remembered that EU is born from the ashes of Auschwitz, in an attempt to make it impossible that an event like this could happen again. Forget the origin of European Union and desire its end, it means running the risk that Auschwitz could happen again.

  • La testimonianza fra memoria e storia. In che consiste la verità
           dello sterminio?

    • Authors: Bruno Moroncini
      Pages: 371 - 396
      Abstract: According to historian Pierre Nora a victimage paradigm has become increasingly important in contemporary historiography and has transformed the historical science into a courtroom. Laws punishing the crime of Negationism with prison in many countries provide evidence of this process of judicialization of history. In order to testify to the existence of the Holocaust against historical revisionism, this essay examines the need to reject the thesis that historical judgements are constative utterances and supports the thesis that they are performative utterances instead. In other words, the essay shows that truth is an ethical issue, a categorical imperative.

  • l tempo della memoria e la memoria del tempo. Una prospettiva ebraica

    • Authors: Paola Ricci Sindoni
      Pages: 397 - 413
      Abstract: No doubt the memory, with its rituals devices and its practical forms – symbolic, represents Judaism a huge patrimony of narrative knowledge and foundation of his religious and civic identity. This paper aims to cover certain stages of Jewish thought, which thematizes the paradigm of temporality, understood as a virtuous circularity between the sacred and the profane, between time and eternity, so that the time of memory is requalifying as a memory of time. In this perspective it is certainly not just the time spent -place usually connected to the memory- to generate the heart of this. It’s rather the future, with its messianic charge, to reclaim the memory and history, whenever the Jew - and every man - neutralizes the vacuum time and corrosive of today by opening it to redemption. In this sense is the future time of the memory.
