  • Abs.2019_II Belardinelli-Cimmino
    • Abstract: Abstract: The essay illustrates how MacIntyre’s After Virtue offers a constructive critique of modern individualism through the concept of “practice,” which is at the basis of MacIntyre’s ethical realism and constitutive of the narrative identity of self, based on the Aristotelian anthropology of human perfection. The essay takes into consideration the concept of community, highlighting the differences between MacIntyre and Communitarianism. The last section focuses on education, its crisis in advanced modernity, and how MacIntyre’s perspective offers an avenue for overcoming that crisis by means of the realism inherent in virtuous education.

  • Abs.2019_II Di Liso
    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper aims to sketch the original role played by Antonio Genovesi (1713-1769) in the philosophical background of the Modern Age, referring particularly to the birth and the first development of Economic science. In the first two paragraphs his biography and bibliography are shortly revisited, focusing on the cultural background of Naples where he lived, studied and taught Philosophy, Theology, Ethics and Economy. Furthermore we focus on some main themes of Genovesi’s thought, in particular : the relationship between the human being, the world and God. Finally we outline a short insight on his proposal of “Civil Economy”.

  • Abs.2019_II Gahl
    • Abstract: Abstract: Alasdair MacIntyre’s account of moral philosophy offers an interwoven theory of teleology, narrative, and human flourishing. As MacIntyre has continued to develop these three central components of his proposal, he has also reinforced their inseparability and mutual dependence. Nonetheless, many of his commentators continue to neglect the interrelatedness of these components on account of their having underappreciated the extent and depth of his conversion to Aristotelian Thomism. This essay displays MacIntyre’s development of moral philosophy over the course of his career. It also focuses on MacIntyre’s Thomistic integration of natural teleology within his metaphysical anthropology to emphasize the distinctiveness of narratives understood as real dramatic enactments constitutive of human flourishing. Although few Thomists have attempted to re-read Aquinas in light of MacIntyre’s proposal for extending that living tradition of enquiry, this essay concludes with a Thomistic proposal for a narrative anthropology crafted to constructively engage MacIntyre’s proposal from the Thomistic perspective.

  • Abs.2019_II Lutz
    • Abstract: Abstract: This essay examines the epistemological stance, called “the rationality of traditions,” that MacIntyre has taken in all of his philosophical work since the publication of Epistemological Crises, Dramatic Narrative, and the Philosophy of Science in 1977. The essay distinguishes the rationality of traditions from MacIntyre’s substantive commitments to the Thomistic-Aristotelian tradition, examines the connections between narrative and tradition in his philosophy, and shows that MacIntyre’s latest books continue to utilize the rationality of traditions.

  • Abs.2019_II Maletta-Mazzola
    • Abstract: Abstract: The first part of this paper is devoted to an outline of MacIntyre’s theory of natural law. According to him, natural law is implied in the ordinary moral experience especially when one is forced to deliberate about common goals and to take part in a common enquiry on human flourishing. The precepts of natural law are presupposed by this common enquiry from the perspective of ordinary moral experience. The second part of the paper is devoted to the presentation and discussion of two critical perspectives on the MacIntyrian approach to natural law by Jean Porter e Gerald McKenny.

  • Abs.2019_II McMylor
    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper sets out to explore the work of the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre in relation to his profound criticisms of the social and economic order of modern capitalist modernity. The paper begins by setting his broad intellectual trajectory within the context of the emergence of the British New Left in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It highlights the continuing significance of some of the key themes explored by the New Left throughout all of MacIntyre’s work and especially regarding his latest work Ethics in the Conflicts of Modernity published in 2016. The paper attempts to bring out the significant role that MacIntyre gives to sociological analysis within his account of modernity and notes the importance of such analysis within what otherwise appears to be his purely philosophical approach and points towards MacIntyre’s work being a form of moral philosophy rooted in social practices that is especially congenial to sociology.

  • Abs.2019_I Bellocq
    • Abstract: Abstract: ‘Ordo rationis’, virtue and law. Reflections on a book by Marco Panero: In his book ‘Ordo rationis’, virtù e legge. Studio sulla morale tomista della ‘Summa Theologiae’, Panero displays an exceptionally well organised, comprehensive and convincing view of the moral philosophy of Aquinas. The rational order is at the core of a two-level theory. Firstly as a formal link that guarantees unity and structural coherence to the different dimensions of action, and secondly as the material content of the good life understood as the excellence of action, i.e. the rational structure of the different virtues and the particular types of activity that realise or contradict them.Keywords: moral philosophy, Aquinas, reason, virtue, law.

  • Abs.2019_I Casanova
    • Abstract: Abstract: Is William of Ockham’s Ethics Voluntaristic': This paper holds that Ockham’s theological and philosophical conceptualism leads to moral voluntarism. To this end, the paper examines the meaning of following “the dictates of right reason” in the context of Ockhamist thought. This task requires investigating: (a) the meaning of the Ockhamist notion of the “good”; (b) the relationships between divine law and natural reason, on the one hand, and between divine Will and divine Wisdom, on the other; (c) the object of moral knowledge ; and (d) the contingency both of concrete moral norms and of the most basic principles of morality. The thesis is dialectically held, in discussion with some of the main English speaking interpreters of Ockham who, from the perspective of the history of Law, Ethics and Theology have held that Ockham’s conceptualism does not lead to moral voluntarism.Keywords: Ockham, moral voluntarism, natural reason, natural Law.

  • Abs.2019_I Gargiulo
    • Abstract: Abstract - Does the Problem of the Incommensurability Exist in Aristotle' An analysis from the doctrine and hermeneutics of Paul Karl Feyerabend: Paul Karl Feyerabend holds a particular hermeneutic with regard to Aristotle’s scientific work. He invites to rethink the contemporary science from an “Aristotelian program of investigation”. He assures us that if science assumes his way of proceeding, the presence of metaphysical elements would not mean a problem for us. Our purpose is to make a critical analysis of the scope of this invitation and to intervene in the discussion of whether or not exists in his scientific practice the problem of incommensurability – as it is understood by Feyerabend. For this, we will show how Aristotle’s understanding of the phenomenon establishes a unity between facts and theories where the problem of incommensurability cannot be established.  Keywords: Feyerabend, Aristotle, Incommensurability, Phenomenon.

  • Abs.2019_I Honorato Moya
    • Abstract: Abstract - Primordial faith and horizon: Merleau-Ponty’s proposal for a new rationality. The main objective of the article is to clarify the most important features of what can be called a new rationality in the thought of Merleau-Ponty. Firstly, we recapitulate Merleau- Ponty’s philosophical proposal as an archaeological return to the primary experience of meaning. Secondly, the conception of ‘perceptual faith’ or ‘primordial faith’ as an institution of meaning is analyzed in detail. In this context, the central place that occupies the notion of world or horizon as the soil or homeland of all forms of rationality is established. The article critically discusses some of the positions held in this regard by Etienne Bimbenet.  Keywords: new rationality, perceptual faith, horizon, Merleau-Ponty.

  • Abs.2019_I Savarese
    • Abstract: Abstract: The Role of the Person in the Scientific Activity: Discovery as an Act of Understanding in Michael Polanyi. In the present milieu, on which the sciences have an increasing influence and within which sciences present themselves as the example of strong truths but are often opposed to the person, this study intends to offer a dissimilar contribution, by presenting a case for reconciliation and continuity between person and science. Given that the personalistic dimensions of sciences are, in reality, a wide area of investigation, this study does not explore all aspects but focusses on a central issue : that which is necessary for grasping the complex structure studied in the sciences. For this purpose, Michael Polanyi’s thought has been examined and in particular, tacit knowledge. This is because it shows in a convincing way, also on the epistemological level, that the whole cannot be reduced to the sum of its parts. That means that the complex entity cannot be grasped in a process from simple data. Therefore, in order to grasp the whole, an act of intellectual comprehension is necessary, that as such requires a particular capacity of the person, that of obtaining universality and objectivity.Keywords: person, science, comprehension, whole, Polanyi.

  • Abs.2019_I Simian
    • Abstract: Abstract: What Does it Mean to Say that Existence is a Perfection' A New Reading of Descartes’ Thesis: The paper aims to clarify the meaning of the well-known Cartesian thesis ‘existence is a perfection.’ Since Gassendi’s objections, it has been traditionally interpreted as saying that existence, like extension, is a first-order property that determines things to be specifically such (either essentially or accidentally). But Descartes never accepted this interpretation and – the paper argues – the texts do not support it. On the other hand, some scholars who reject Gassendi’s reading have not advanced a convincing alternative. This article seeks to provide such an alternative by analyzing the thesis in its proper context, the Fifth Meditation. First, it expounds Descartes’ notions of nature and perfection. Then, it argues – against both traditional and alternative readings – that the thesis has a twofold meaning. Regarding any finite nature qua possible, it means that existence may determine it as a second-order property. Regarding the infinite nature qua possible, it means that existence determines it as an individual property. Keywords: Descartes, existence, perfection, a priori proof.

    • Abstract: Abstract: Einstein’s Curved Space-Time and Scientific Revolution: Both physicists and philosophers cite the theory-shift from flat to curved space-time formalism as revolutionary feature within NewtonEinstein theory-change. This essay argues against this that this conceptual change was ‘evolutionary’ and exhibits a high degree of continuity. The basic strategy of this essay is to employ the dynamical perspective of space-time developed by Harvey Brown, and Robert DiSalle, which selects the relationships between events – one specified by the laws of inertia at issue – as the essential elements within these two physical theoretical frameworks. This view turns our attention away from the structure of space-time to the dynamical laws, and also clarifies to what extent the theory-change is evolutionary.Keywords: Motion, Curved Space-Time, Scientific Revolution, Dynamical Perspective of Space-Time.

  • Abs.2018_II Álvarez
    • Abstract: Abstract: The common denominator among philosophers who deal with virtue is their conviction that this concept is one of the key pieces to explain morality. However, the different ways of approaching the definition of virtue depend on anthropological and metaphysical preconceptions. When we ask what a virtue is, the answer changes if the question is about the effects it causes on the moral agent. These two questions lead to explore different areas of the human being. The thesis that will be defended in this paper is that a holistic vision of virtue needs to determine what it essentially consists in, what its subject is and what it brings to its possessor. This triple perspective of virtue combines the approach of the ethics of the first person with the ethics of the third person. Subsequently, the paper will address the question of the difference between moral and intellectual virtues and their importance (meaning) in the field of moral education.Keywords: virtue, faculty, activity, capacity, education, moral virtues, intellectual virtues.

  • Abs.2018_II Audi
    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper explores the variety and normative foundations of intellectual virtues. Although it does not provide a virtue-theoretic account of knowledge or justification, it indicates in detail how knowledge and justification may be crucial for understanding intellectual virtues. Some of these virtues are in a certain way based on knowledge, whereas others are based in a certain way on justification. But there are still others, such as creativity, that have a more complicated basis. In the light of the cases examined, the paper provides a partial account of intellectual virtue.Keywords: creativity, epistemic, intellectual character, justification, knowledge, reasonableness, reasons-responsiveness, reliability.

  • Abs.2018_II Campodonico
    • Abstract: Abstract: The essay concerns the topic of practical wisdom (phronesis, prudentia). After tracing it back to its ancient and medieval roots, and following its path through modern and contemporary thought, the essay develops an original view of this virtue. In particular, it stresses its synthetic role of informing and unifying ethical and epistemic virtues, and underlines the role played in its development by virtuous others. Finally, the essay draws the main consequences of such views as for the ethics of intelligence and philosophy of education.Keywords: Practical wisdom, wisdom, epistemic virtues, moral virtues, Aristotle.

  • Abs.2018_II Greco
    • Abstract: Abstract: This paper sets out a problem for the traditional account of understanding as a systematic knowledge of causes. The problem is this: On the one hand, we have a strong intuition that understanding cannot be transmitted by mere testimony, even in an educational setting, where the testimony is in the context of teaching. On the other hand, it is widely assumed that knowledge can be transmitted by mere testimony. So how can this be, if understanding is just systematic knowledge' This paper tries to resolve the puzzle for the traditional account of understanding, and to some extent argues in favor of that account over some recent alternatives. The central claim is that, in principle, understanding can indeed be transmitted by teaching in an educational setting. However, good teaching strives to go beyond mere knowledge transmission, to include teaching students how to generate knowledge themselves.Keywords: knowledge, understanding, generation, transmission, causes, epistemic.

  • Abs.2018_II Menin
    • Abstract: Abstract: The article aims to show how Bernardin de Saint-Pierre – whose philosophical and theological thought is generally overlooked by scholars – provides an original solution to the problem of the existence of evil. A comparative reading of the systematic discussion of Providence that animates The Studies of Nature, his major theoretical work, and Paul and Virginie, true Romanesque application of the philosophical treatise, brings out a ‘double’ theodicy. Saint-Pierre establishes a fruitful synergy between Rousseau’s anthropodicy, which provides a social and historical justification of evil, and Leibniz’s eschatology, aimed at its metaphysical and otherworldly justification.Keywords: Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, evil, theodicy, anthropodicy, eschatology.

    • Abstract: Abstract: The religious phenomenon is linked by the experience that the transcendental ones provide to us. 1) We will Warn the split of the verum respect of the bonus and of the pulchrum; none of them finds his fullness of an isolated way. 2) His unit only is in God; there is a God's natural desire when we long the happiness. 3) Limitations in the experience of the transcendental ones, due to our simultaneous condition so much of greatness (always we look for the truth, the good and the beauty) as of misery (unable to reach them without the help of the grace). 4) In the work of art there is an observation of fullness, a nostalgia of paradise, us another world is discovered. The theological "background noise" in the artistic creation makes us neighbors of the transcendent thing; the existing entail between the music and the religious feeling.Keywords: Transcendental ones, happiness, creation, art, beauty, music.

  • Abs.2018_II Stella Ianulardo
    • Abstract: Abstract. The relation between consciousness and object in the Introduction to the Phenomenology of Spirit synthetises two fundamental Hegelian concepts: that of “relation” and that of “absolute”. In this article we show that Hegel not always interprets the relation as a medium between extremes, because in some very significant passages he intends it as an act. Furthermore the absolute is not only interpreted as determined but also as emergent beyond the universe of determinations, that is beyond the relation/contraposition of determined and undetermined.Keywords: Hegel, fenomenologia, spirito, relazione, coscienza, unità.
