  • L’arte contemporanea e il “civic engagement”

    • Authors: Stefania Barile
      Abstract: This essay explores the value of the artist’s action and the power that his work exercises in the socio-political history of his country. It talks about Picasso and his Guernica, offering a reading of the work following the thread of Antonio Banfi’s aesthetics through the critical look of Dino Formaggio. The scene opens with the parisian Expo of 1937. The article is then integrated with aesthetic, moral and civil contents that guide the reader to understand the concept of morality, crisis and life of the art for Banfi and the connection with Picasso's cultural work, starting from his writings against Franco’s atrocities up to Guernica. An authentic reading of the work is inserted that wants to support the moral shock determined by Guernica: a real denunciation of the misery and corruption of the government, inciting the people to fight. Finally, in order to show how current the artists’ interest in social, political and international problems is, the essay ends by presenting the work of two particularly committed contemporary artists: the Italian Paola Ravasio and the Syrian Tammam Azzam.

  • Una bestia da guidare

    • Authors: Federico Casella
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyse the numerous metaphors that Plato employs in his Republic to symbolise the ignorance, the immorality, and the political inadequacy of the “multitude”, in other words the people who live in a democracy. Plato’s symbols highlight the negativity – illustrated in other dialogues as well – of the Athenian demos in order to suggest the only political role that people must play: becoming subjects of the “divine” philosophers in the perfect city described in the Republic. Only by relying on philosophers’ guidance can the multitude be saved from itself: through one of the most recurrent symbols of the demos, the animal, Plato reveals his scepticism towards democracy and his preference for an oligarchy ruled by philosophers.

  • Segnico, simbolico, politico

    • Authors: Matteo De Toffoli
      Abstract: This article explores some central features of the theory of signification put forward by Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe, taking into account both Hegemony and Socialist Strategy and some further reflections developed by Laclau alone. Through the analysis of the concepts of discourse, empty signifier, dislocation and antagonism it is argued that, in the discourse-theoretical framework, the Saussurean “arbitrariness of the sign” can be limited only through the symbolic unification of a discourse and the drawing of antagonistic frontiers, and that these latter processes rest on contingent decisions, that is operations pertaining to the order of the political.

  • Miti e utopie della modernità nelle Riflessioni sulla violenza di
           Georges Sorel

    • Authors: Viviana Galletta
      Abstract: This paper analyses the work Riflessioni sulla violenza written by Georges Sorel and published in 1908. The principal aim of this paper is to present the deep relationship between myth, violence and politics in order to reevaluate how irrational forces have guided social movements and revolutions. The distinction between the notions of force and violence introduces the central thesis of Georges Sorel’s political thought, which is called anarcho-syndacalism. More specifically, George Sorel puts together Marx and Bergson in order to develop a severe criticism of the Third Republic and to theorize the role of violence in the transition from capitalism to socialism. Through the myth of the general strike, Sorel introduces his philosophical perspective on social struggles against the parlamentarism.

  • Symbolic Unity in Post-Marxism

    • Authors: Soim Lee
      Abstract: The paper examines the question of the symbolic dimension in the political. It is argued that both Ernesto Laclau’s and Claude Lefort’s Post-Marxist accounts understand this question as a problem of rethinking symbolic unity. I will trace arguments of these accounts and examine their relation to Carl Schmitt's notion of the political. To this end, both aesthetic and politico-juridical dimensions of the political are discussed by focusing on two questions: 1) How should it be understood that in Laclau’s idea of populism the symbolic construction of the people differs from the juridical construction of the people' 2) What does it mean to understand symbolic unity as political power as Lefort does'

  • Eric Voegelin e i simboli del politico

    • Authors: Massimo Mezzanzanica
      Abstract: The article deals with Eric Voegelin’s analysis of the symbolic dimension of politics and history. It focuses at first on the analysis of the relationship between religion, politics and totalitarianism in the essay on “political religions” and outlines some aspects of the context in which this essay was written. Some characteristics of Voegelin's methodological reflections on the idea of a “new science” of politics are then presented and it is then shown how the attempt to understand the relationship between ideas and symbols opens a new horizon of research, in which the relationship between symbol and representation, and that between symbol, history and being, around which the monumental, and unfinished work Order and History moves, are the main axes.

  • L’orologio e il calendario

    • Authors: Alessio Porrino, Alessandro Volpi
      Abstract: This article aims at reflecting on the political significance of distinct conceptions of temporality and their symbolic representation in the work of Walter Benjamin. In particular, the “clock” and the “calendar” will be addressed as symbols of, respectively, a linear and homogeneous conception of time and of a cyclical, uneven – and potentially revolutionary – temporality. The conception of time symbolized by clocks is criticized by Benjamin as a bourgeois understanding of progress, which inhibits revolutionary tensions in society by shifting the political focus on future, on the inevitability of progress and growth; on the other hand, calendars’ and ancient cyclical festivals’ temporality constantly looks at the past, celebrating and re-actualizing the memory of previous revolutionary attempts. In the last section, the article will consider the role of symbols and allegories in Benjamin’s philosophical writing, casting new light on the previous discussion.

  • Esorcizzare lo spettro

    • Authors: Pier Giuseppe Puggioni
      Abstract: This paper enquires into the political and juridical themes underlying Giacomo Puccini’s opera Tosca (1900). Through the comparison of Puccini’s score, the libretto by Giacosa and Illica, and the original play by Sardou, I will present a twofold reading of the intertwinement between politics, religion, and law in this musical work. On the one hand, I will show that the police power represented by the character of Scarpia can be interpreted, from a Benjaminian standpoint, as a violent power that shapes the legal and religious order. On the other hand, I will argue that the artistic couple made by Cavaradossi and Tosca is politically significant in so far as their art represents an attempt to deactivate Scarpia’s pervading and oppressive force. The conclusion will contend that the aesthetics in this opera subtends the aspiration for an “inoperative”-wise revolution in religious institutions as well as in legal and political relations.

  • Symbolism and National Identity in Carl Durheim’s Photographic Work

    • Authors: Sara Romani
      Abstract: In this article I explore the work of Carl Durheim (1810-1890) as a production of highly symbolic imagery geared toward the visual creation of the Swiss national identity in the wake of the establishment of the Confederation in 1848. After providing some background about Durheim and the early history of photography in Switzerland I focus on Durheim’s pictures of the so-called Heimatlose (vagabonds), which were commissioned by the Police and Justice Department in Bern. I argue that these pictures cannot be interpreted merely as mug shots taken in order to reproduce the identity of the depicted subjects; rather, using the rhetorical force of photography, these images projected onto the Heimatlose the ideal of the new Swiss society, based on bourgeois values and clearly demarcated from everything foreign through an idealized operation of drawing geographical and social borders.

  • Nello specchio del Rinascimento

    • Authors: Roberto Rossi
      Abstract: Today, historians, philosophers, and scholars of cultural heritage discuss about the relationship between the periodizing labels of historiography and their symbolic employment within the current political rhetoric. To understand the relevance of this issue in Italy, it can be helpful to look at the academic and public debates around the category of “Renaissance”. On the one hand, this article aims to map some notable political uses of this historical figure as a symbol; on the other hand, it reconstructs a tradition of thought focused on the epistemic autonomy of the same category. With these intentions, I look at a group of Italian critics of Johan Huizinga’s aesthetic view of history – like Delio Cantimori, Eugenio Garin, and their heirs within the academic milieu of the “Scuola Normale” of Pisa. Finally, I evaluate whether there is any correspondence between “Renaissance” as a symbol within the political debate and its historiographical employment as a periodizing label.

  • Post-Symbolic Images in Platform Capitalism

    • Authors: Luca Serafini
      Abstract: Platform capitalism brings several processes to completion that were already apparent during post-industrial capitalism. One of these involves images and their gradual loss of a symbolic dimension. The mechanisms that platforms employ to direct the production of media content reduce images to objects of immediate use and consumption. Consequently, images fail to synthetise the multiplicity of the social reality: instead of inscribing it within a horizon of meaning, they simply reflect it. This article reconstructs the “de-symbolising” process of images during the various phases of capitalism and explains why a post-symbolic aesthetics should also be viewed as “impolitical”. If the political is indeed symbolic, since the giving of meaning and direction to society (a political task par excellence) also takes place through the construction of symbolic systems, the post-symbolic aesthetic is instead imposed by platforms for purely economic reasons.

  • Il simbolico e la via del movimento delle donne

    • Authors: Chiara Zamboni
      Abstract: Symbolic politics has been one of the key phrases in Italian feminism since the 1970s. This text describes the historical origins and significance of this concept together with the difference in the use of the symbolic dimension in traditional male politics. The most important difference is that female politics are born from living and affective relations which cannot be permanently established and rotate around non-formalized procedural practices. The sense that emerges is felt during the actual process and the symbolic is therefore experienced and transformed from the inside with the authority that comes from these practices, which influence and modify each other due to their closeness. They spread by proximity.

  • Dinamiche della bellezza: sguardo e narrazione nel ritratto

    • Authors: Silvana Borutti
      Abstract: Through the commentary on portraits (Lotto, Giorgione, Vermeer, L. Freud, Rembrandt, Tiziano, Bacon…), my contribution will develop two topics. In fact, the portrait calls to reflect both on the reversible dynamics of the gaze (between painter, subject and spectator, between presence and absence) and on the time of the individual as an experience and as a transformative process that tells a story.

  • Arte e tabù: il disgusto e i limiti della rappresentazione

    • Authors: Serena Feloj
      Abstract: Referring to the notion of representation, I will argue the idea that disgust continues to constitute a limitation for art and that the presence of the disgusting can be read through the Freudian notion of taboo. The indulgence of artistic creation in disgust, in fact, would confirm the fact that only what is domesticated, thus what does not arouse authentic disgust, can be assimilated by art. On the contrary, authentic disgust remains taboo insofar as it indicates the absolutely other, the unassimilable, a non-domesticated animality extraneous to the process of civilization. It is, after all, what classical aesthetics had already shown and that today can be reread in Freudian terms.

  • Intorno al brutto. Una categoria controversa

    • Authors: Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis
      Abstract: Paul Valéry, in his “Discourse on Aesthetics”, which he pronounced in 1936 in front of an audience of philosophers, reproached them, accusing aesthetics in particular of having pursued the abstract idea of beauty for too long, losing itself in the shadows of specialized terminology or in verbal games and thus forgetting the varied reality of works of art. Following an abstract idea of beauty means losing sight of the artistic object. It also means deluding oneself that the ugly is merely a counterbalance to a dominant category. But what does ugly mean' Its ambivalence lies precisely in a continuous oscillation between an evaluative and a descriptive use. There is a duplicity, so that on the one hand it expresses a negative judgment, and on the other hand - suspending its normal semantic destiny - it reclaims for itself some positivity. It is precisely from this positivity that the ugly begins its journey in the field of aesthetics.

  • Screziature del Bello

    • Authors: Gabriele Scaramuzza
      Abstract: Rather than discussing beauty or ugliness as metaphysical categories I do prefer here to consider individual artistic worlds, and to defend the values in which I recognise myself as reader and enjoyer, in the various ways in which this can be articulated. Worlds in which aesthetic positivity and negativity are in tension, each resolving this dialectic in its own way. That’s why my paper doesn’t analyse Beauty or Ugliness tout-court. I do rather consider their dialectical intertwining and reflecting in specific works of art: The Idiot by Dostoevskij, the librettos to Wagner’s Lohengrin and Verdi’s Rigoletto, as well as Fatelessness by Imre Kertész. I intend to show how a negative experience can be transfigured in the structure and language of these writers and musicians.

  • Problematizzazione, contesa e rivalutazione del bello nell’arte, tra
           relativismo filosofico, pratica artistica e senso comune

    • Authors: Nicola Vitale
      Abstract: Aesthetic perception is today a confused and controversial experience. In common sense relativistic conception of beauty, coexists with the consideration of the so-called “masterpieces” as works in which there is a stable aesthetic value. Philosophical and scientific relativism seems to have definitively set aside the conception of beauty not only as a universal value, but also as the essence of art, as it is counted among those universal metaphysical values, which have long been questioned. But some philosophers, such as Severino, say the opposite. Today seems to be a tendency to rediscover beauty above all in art, as a contemplative perception. Would the eventual return of art to beauty mean a return to universal metaphysical values' The difference between Kantian adherent beauty and free beauty is analyzed. The first is linked to metaphysical values, as an expression of an idea. The second, free beauty, on the other hand, has no metaphysical characteristics because it is not linked to a concept, therefore an expression of empirical harmonies. But also with regard to free beauty, the Kantian idea that sentiment can perceive its universality as an intersubjective value, is today difficult to accept both theoretically and empirically. This happens because today sentiment is no longer cultivated in the perception of beauty through canons, which are also disqualified for the pretense of universality in determined forms. Here, too, a distinction must be made between classical anthropometric canons and archaic non-naturalistic canons. We discover that the former are affected by a metaphysical foundation, while the latter reveal a different structure with other functions. According to Florenskij, the canon is not oppressive but liberating. On these suggestions and on empirical evidence we theorize that the (non-naturalistic) canon constitutes a guide for the recognition of a polyvalence of expressive language in which feeling coordinates with the other functions of consciousness, leading to transcend language itself in a non-metaphysical dimension. This suggests that this polyvalent structure that emerges from the canons is associated with beauty, as aimed at its realization.

  • Stregoneria e utopia. Luciano Parinetto vent’anni dopo

    • Authors: Manuele Bellini
      Abstract: Twenty years after his death, the reflections of Luciano Parinetto (1934-2001), who was associate professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Milan, remain, on the one hand, on the relationship between witchcraft and diversity, and on the other hand, on the value of utopian hope. Despite the fact that the course of history has preferred the path of integration to that of revolution, dialectics remains the picklock to criticize alienated social situations.

  • Winterreise op. 89 di Schubert: una lettura a tre chiavi

    • Authors: Tiziana Canfori
      Abstract: This paper explains the “birth” and development of an idea of performance: “Winterreise” by Franz Schubert; the concert was premiered at Levanto Music Festival (La Spezia-Italy) in summer 2021. The performers were Mirella Di Vita (soprano), Tiziana Canfori (pianist) and Simone Fareri (painter and sculptor). The artists conceived a detailed performance that combined music, lyrics and fine arts, intending to get the audience more involved in listening to this long and complex Lieder cycle. The different languages and the space-time arrangement had to be considered in the structure of this concert to create a more natural and complete sharing experience for the audience.

  • La filosofia di Biancaneve. Spunti per i tempi che cambiano

    • Authors: Cristina Muccioli
      Abstract: Nicola Vitale walks a side path to the smooth march of technocratic rationalism. A rationalism dried up in the imagination, in the capacity for vision, in the sense of community belonging that makes us human beings, as Aristotle taught. Snow White, from a Disney fairy tale, returns to its symbolic powerful significance of alchemical narration where everything, even the most divisive evil, finds meaning and place.

  • Rievocando Guido Davide Neri

    • Authors: Luca Natali, Paolo Karapedian, Sofia Elena Merli
      Abstract: La morte di Guido Davide Neri, di cui quest’anno ricorre il ventennale, ha determinato la presa di coscienza – nei suoi maestri, amici, colleghi e allievi – dell’irreparabilità dell’evento, della definitività del venir meno di una voce così teoreticamente stimolante ed eclettica. Perdita tragicamente vissuta nella cerchia della sua frequentazione, ma, parallelamente, inserita nell’ampio contesto del dibattito culturale nazionale e internazionale, in cui Neri era organicamente inserito. Pare a noi, che non lo abbiamo conosciuto e gli siamo temporalmente più distanti rispetto a quanti ne hanno sinora scritto, quasi inusuale che, a un filosofo mancato da così poco tempo, sia stata consacrata una già così importante quantità di ricerche e studi. Al di là della retorica che spesso accompagna, in ambiente accademico, il ritiro dall’attività didattica o la scomparsa di un docente, e abituati alla necessità della sedimentazione storica per la messa a punto del bilancio storiografico, ci ha stupito l’intensità con cui Neri è stato ricordato e la varietà degli interventi sulla sua figura, l’insegnamento e la produzione scientifica. Se da un lato questo acuisce, in noi, il rimpianto di non averlo incrociato nel mondo, dall’altro stimola la volontà di tornare a lui, al suo pensiero, alle sue opere. Un ritorno che, non mediato dall’influenza personale, potrà certo apparire privo di taluni elementi importanti, come la testimonianza diretta o la compartecipazione a certe esperienze determinanti, ma, insieme, si potrà giovare del giusto distacco critico, trovando ora nel prezioso Fondo Guido Davide Neri, conservato presso l’Università degli Studi di Milano, la fonte privilegiata dell’accesso alla sua opera teorica. Questo, si potrebbe dire, è il fil rouge che accomuna i nostri brevi contributi, diversi per tematiche e occasione di elaborazione, ma tutti contraddistinti dall’interesse e dalla volontà di avvicinare un po’ meglio la figura di Neri: le carte dell’archivio personale per noi hanno rappresentato e rappresentano la possibilità di accedere al suo laboratorio, di scoprire da esse l’uomo e il filosofo e di dare concretezza documentaria alla dialettica tra pensiero, letture ed esperienze. Certo il lavoro da svolgere è ancora molto e solo lo scandaglio approfondito del materiale permetterà di penetrare a fondo l’officina neriana. Quello che noi qui, più limitatamente, offriamo, è soltanto un piccolo esempio di quanto di rilevante e ancora da vedere è racchiuso nei faldoni e aspetta di essere portato alla luce. Il nostro, in altre parole, vorrebbe essere un invito a ripensare Neri attraverso le carte, convinti della loro imprescindibilità ai fini della ricostruzione storico-critica del suo percorso filosofico e coscienti del loro straordinario valore intrinseco (per certi versi anche estetico). Gli interventi che presentiamo – ne siamo convinti – sono poi una ulteriore testimonianza della capacità di Neri e del suo pensiero di porsi in dialogo, anche a distanza, con una sempre nuova varietà di interlocutori.

  • Leggere il teatro

    • Authors: Alessandro Quattrone
      Abstract: The theatrical work of Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis, published in the volume Teatro da leggere. Mito e conflitto – with the accompaniment of detailed premises by the author herself – develops in two directions. The first one, looking at the past, leads to the rewriting of works of the literary tradition according to a new point of view. The reworking of famous classical characters relates the distant with the near, allowing us to reflect, among other things, on the function and value of illusions. The second, looking at the present, leads to the presentation of seemingly insignificant characters to highlight the tragic fate of rise and fall or desperate search for a recognized identity.

  • Salvatore Veca per noi

    • Authors: Emilio Renzi
      Abstract: Salvatore Veca (31 October 1943 - 7 October 2021) was not only a lecturer in many universities, including eventually Pavia, but also an active intellectual in many important civic structures. A brilliant pupil of Enzo Paci at the University of Milan, editor of the journal «aut aut», Veca chaired the Fondazione Feltrinelli and the Casa della Cultura in Milan and was the author of many books on philosophy based on the critical introduction of Anglo-Saxon analytical culture. The presentation in Italy of the work of John Rawls was important and marked the liveliest interest in the problem of the “just society”. He played a leading role in the debate on the possible developments of the Italian left after the fall of the Berlin Wall. For the Expo Laboratory he was responsible for drafting the “Milan Charter” on environmental sustainability.
