La Repubblica di Platone (Italian Edition) by Alain Badiou,I. Bussoni,Marta Albertella

By Alain Badiou,I. Bussoni,Marta Albertella

Né traduzione o parodia, né commento o rilettura filologica, l. a. Repubblica di Platone “di” Badiou si accinge a diventare l’opera filosofica più singolare del XXI secolo.
Un genere letterario a sé stante e tanto più stupefacente quanto non è del tutto chiaro chi ne sia l’autore: il fondatore della filosofia, il greco Platone, o quello che, secondo molti, è il più importante pensatore vivente, il francese Alain Badiou? I personaggi sono Socrate e i suoi allievi, ma tra questi spunta una donna. Lo stile è quello del dialogo, ma il lettore è afferrato da una prosa che attinge a piene mani da un’incalzante oralità. I problemi sono quelli della giustizia e della costituzione politica, ed ecco allora che si parla di corruzione dilagante e sovranità del denaro. Resta los angeles tensione socratica con Omero ed Eraclito, ma los angeles poesia viene riscattata da Mallarmé e il molteplice da Deleuze. I concetti, le domande, i nodi problematici è l’eternità dell’opera di Platone a porli. Ma sono los angeles vivacità e l’audacia del pensiero di Alain Badiou a declinarli nella nostra condizione contemporanea, a farli vibrare in un testo che ricolloca l’opinione nel contesto delle società mediatiche, il mito della caverna nell’odierna schiavitù dell’effimero, Dio nell’alterità, los angeles filosofia in un gesto di combattimento.
Nella società giusta qui ridisegnata, dove a governare sono di nuovo i filosofi, e dove tutti, nessuno escluso, saranno filosofi, a dischiudersi non è solo los angeles possibilità di una «vera politica» ma una through di accesso all’assoluto.

Diálogos en el limbo (Filosofía - Los Esenciales De La by Editorial Tecnos S.A.,George Santayana,Carmen García

By Editorial Tecnos S.A.,George Santayana,Carmen García Trevijano,Daniel Moreno

Este libro se recomienda a sí mismo y no necesita que lo ampare ningún reclamo coyuntural. Es uno de los más interesantes, originales y profundos, sin sombra de pedantería, de cuantos ha producido el pensamiento español de nuestro siglo, y cuando termine de leerlo compartirá esta opinión. ¿De qué asunto trata? El limbo es, según una tradición cristiana, el lugar donde las almas de no bautizados sufren sin tormento los angeles privación de l. a. gloria. Si l. a. filosofía es, como alguna vez escribió Bertrand Russell, una especia de tierra de nadie entre el suelo firme de los angeles ciencia y el invisible cielo de los angeles religión, ¿por qué no elegir ese lugar legendario como adecuado teatro de discusión entre filósofos, o sus almas, acerca de lo divino y lo humano?
