    John Harris. Persona, potenzialità e pre-persona2013In: Sintesi Dialettica, ISSN 2037-2957, Vol. 6, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Secondo la nozione sviluppata da John Harris è da considerare persona l’individuo che dimostri la capacità di concepire se stesso in differenti tempi e luoghi e che sia capace di desiderare di fare esperienza di una vita a cui assegna un valore. Tale concezione viene analizzata ricostruendone la genesi, chiarendo quali criteri sottendono le scelte effettuate. L’elaborazione teorica di Harris viene posta a confronto con altre due formulazioni contemporanee, sviluppate rispettivamente da Peter Singer e Vittorio Possenti. Nell’ultima parte sono stati approfonditi criticamente due concetti che emergono dalla descrizione di Harris della persona e che sono ad essa collegati, ossia i concetti di potenzialità e pre-persona.

    Kosovo: Quelle statue che dividono2018In: Ananke 83: Idoli infranti: Intollerances 2017 / [ed] Marco Dezzi Bardeschi, Milano: Politecnico di Milano, Dipartimento ABC , 2018, p. 24-25Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The use of monuments in urban space is often bounded to political power and social hierarchy; through spatial distribution, form and meanings of public statues one social group can convey political myths and stabilize or legitimize political authority. In Mitrovica, the divided city of Kosovo, since the conflict of 1999, and during the apartheid-like regime preceding it, uses of the past became more and more entangled with present-day political objectives connected to territory and national identity. here different interpretations of the past are manifested in public space by Kosovo Serbs and Kosovo Albanians.

    Verso una teoria del diritto per l’età delle migrazioni di massa: Una tipologia del potere arbitrario2018In: Rivista di Filosofia del Diritto - Journal of Legal Philosophy, ISSN 2280-482X, Vol. 1, p. 11-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a typology of forms of arbitrariness, as related to political power, is sketched out and applied specifically to the analysis of citizenship policies and border-control techniques. The paper offers a basic typology of forms of arbitrariness making possible a hopefully clarifying differentiation among forms of abuse: (a) illegal practices, (b) irrational policies, and (c) discriminatory statuses.

    Ancora uomo: Natura umana e postumanesimo2011 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Il testo propone una ricostruzione storicoteoretica della prospettiva postumanistica, evidenziandone i principali snodi concettuali, a partire dalla Neue Anthropologie, dal pensiero di Foucault e di Deleuze, passando per la biologia evoluzionistica e l’infofilosofia fino a giungere alla tecnoscienza contemporanea, intesa come luogo di collisione e commistione del sapere e dell’agire umano. Accanto a tale ricognizione si propone una problematizzazione della semantica del postumano, sottolineandone il limite critico in una concezione riduttiva e riduzionista della natura umana, della quale, per contro, si propone un recupero del significato classico secondo il suo concetto non naturalistico, per il quale essa non è riducibile a semplice e statica materia, ma è da intendersi come ciò che ha in sé il principio di movimento e di quiete. Una natura umana così intesa comprende in sé gli attributi principali del pensiero postumanistico, in particolare dinamismo e ibridazione, restando nel contempo inscritta in un orizzonte ancora antropologico.

    Filosofia delle neuroscienze: Cervello, mente, persona2012 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Nel presente lavoro, prescindendo dagli aspetti tecnici del sapere neuroscientifico, l’autore mette in evidenza il crescente primato esplicativo delle neuroscienze riguardo la conoscenza della natura umana; delinea come possibile alternativa a tale primato: la concezione del cervello come sistema plastico condizionato dall’ambiente esterno; avanza la tesi di un ripensamento dell’identità umana, superando gli antichi steccati tra il sé e l’altro da sé (l’altro biologico, ma anche l’altro tecnologico), senza con ciò giungere a negare qualsiasi presupposto identitario.

    Anatomia del cittadino: Tre modi di intendere la cittadinanza e alcuni problemi indesiderati2009In: Analisi & Diritto, ISSN 1126-5779, Vol. 1, p. 73-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to distinguish analytically the meanings of “citizenship” in the contemporary debate. According to the semantic area of reference, citizenship stands for a political status referring to the individual’s position within the polity; a legal status referring to the overall position of a subject characterized by a determinate sphere of capacities; a social status indicating the ascribed or achieved position of a person within the social stratification in the group. After distinguishing the three semantic areas and specifying the methodology used, focus switches to the structure, genesis and internal composition of the semantic areas. These are subsequently summed up in a scheme that accounts for the basic problem that a given semantic area attempts to respond to. The purpose is to explain, on the basis of practical examples, why the distinction is important and why there is so much confusion in the current debate. In the last section, I suggest another distinction, inspired by Aristotle’s third book of Politics according to which we should distinguish between what the citizen is and who a citizen is. The stake of the issue is to inquire on the plausibility of assuming that a person has to enjoy a determinate attribute or capacity in order to have the right or the legal obligation implied by the status of citizenship.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper defends the functional theory of citizenship on the grounds of the conceptual map of contemporary models of citizenship that I have developed elsewhere. I address three different types of criticisms. First, the focus is on the arguments of those who believe the legal model of citizenship needs to be abandoned or rejected all together. Several reasons against this suggestion are highlighted. Second, a short discussion follows of some points made by those contributors to this volume who instead think that the legal model should be not be rejected, but that it still needs to be amended or requires development to fit contemporary migration patterns. Finally, I address the criticisms of those who believe the whole enterprise of developing a general theory of citizenship is flawed since there would be no concept of citizenship independently of political contingencies.

    Chi decide sul futuro del federalismo europeo?2011In: Quale federalismo? / [ed] Ermanno Vitale, Turin: Giappichelli , 2011, p. 117-142Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Questo lavoro mira a ricostruire e discutere l’argomentazione della Corte costituzionale tedesca nella sentenza sul Trattato di Lisbona sulla natura dell’Unione europea, tema molto dibattuto in ambito accademico, al fine di chiarire i motivi per cui la relazione fra federalismo e democrazia all’interno dell’Unione risulta così tesa. L’idea secondo la quale l’UE non può legittimamente diventare uno stato federale senza chiamare in causa il potere costituente del popolo tedesco è una tesi che, a mio parere, si basa su una logica circolare che dipende, in ultima analisi, dalla definizione di cittadinanza adottata. Attraverso le politiche di cittadinanza si influenza, infatti,  la definizione di «popolo», che a sua volta incide sulla relazione, di rango costituzionale, fra federalismo e democrazia. Si partirà dall’analisi delle affermazioni sulla natura e la legittimità dell’Unione europea e sulla relazione fra l’Unione e gli Stati membri contenute nella sentenza, per soffermarsi, poi, sulla definizione di cittadinanza, e quella conseguente di «popolo tedesco», che sono apparentemente fra i concetti chiave per comprendere come sia possibile articolare il legame tra democrazia e federalismo.

    Abstract [it]

    Resumen: In questo contributo, intendo segnalare i principali punti d’interesse del Congresso internazionale organizzato da Marcial Pons Editor, in collaborazione con l’Università Pompeu Fabra di Barcelona e l’Università di Girona, sul tema Neutralidad y teoría del derecho, che si è svolto a Girona, dal 19 al 23 maggio 2010. Gli interventi sono disponibili in video all’indirizzo: http://www.udg.edu/CulturaJuridica/ Noticies/Arxiudenoticies/tabid/12506/p/17055/language/es-ES/ Default.aspx e verranno presto pubblicati in un volume collettaneo per i tipi di Marcial Pons. I lavori sono stati preceduti, il 19 maggio 2010, dalla presentazione degli ultimi volumi della collana di filosofia del diritto di Marcial Pons, la casa editrice spagnola che ha sostenuto l’evento internazionale. Francisco Laporta (Università Autonoma, Madrid) ha commentato il volume di Ricardo Caracciolo, intitolato El Derecho desde la Filosofía. Ensayos (Madrid, CEPC, 2009). José Juan Moreso (Barcelona, Università Pompeu Fabra) ha presentato la raccolta di saggi di Bruno Celano sulla meta-etica, intitolata Derecho, justicia, razones. Ensayos 2000-2007 (Madrid, CEPC, 2009). La presentazione dei libri si è conclusa con il commento di Rafael Escudero al volume di Paolo Comanducci, Hacia una teoría analítica del derecho. Ensayos escogidos (Madrid, CEPC, 2010). Questi tre titoli danno un’idea delle collane in tema di teoria del diritto e della politica che vengono ospitate dall’editore.

    Doppiando il Capo Horn della scienza del diritto: Sull’oggettivismo post-metafisico quale fondamento del positivismo inclusivo2012In: Teoria Politica, ISSN 0394-1248, no 2, p. 143-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Inclusive legal positivism has been in the limelight for some time. There are several reasons for this. Among the structural reasons for this general change of direction within general jurisprudence are cultural changes such as the renewed interest for theory of action or normative methodology. This paper discusses José Juan Moreso’s contribution to this debate. The paper focuses especially on the thesis that there would be no connection between non-cognitivism as set out in meta-ethics and positivism in legal theory. This thesis is really the outcome of a compound of different positions: on the political level, the question concerns the possible relationships and tensions between democracy and liberalism. On the ethical and foremost meta-ethical level, the issue basically revolves around the relation between cognitivism and expressivism; and, on the level of legal theory, Moreso attempts to resolve the problem that Benedetto Croce, a century ago, compared to the difficulty of sailing around Cape Horn, i.e. to connect the law and ethics. The paper is divided into five sections. In the first section of the paper, a few historical remarks are made. In section two, I look at how natural law is defined in Moreso. In section three, some observations are made on how legal positivism is qualified in relation to natural law. In section four, I suggest a possible criticism of the conception of moral relativism used by Moreso and recommend an alternative conception that hopefully grasps further features of the way the problem is frequently discussed. Finally, some methodological remarks are made: the choice of disregarding the distinction between authentic and inauthentic normative propositions leads Moreso to conceive the object of dispute between cognitivists and expressivists in an unfruitful way. The lack of distinction between the role played by belief on the one hand and conative attitudes on the other makes it hard, if not impossible to grasp what exactly is the object of this dispute. In fact, their opposition, instead of representing a fertile scientific dialogue becomes similar to a situation where people are talking pass each other. If this outcome is to be avoided and the two positions reconstructed properly, an account of what constitutes belief should complement the theory. Probably greater focus is also needed on what is considered to be the primary function of normative propositions.

    Emergenza, costituzione, diritti fondamentali: una guida critica2007Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In any given time of emergency, fundamental rights and the constitutional arrangement are being jeopardized. The question of how to keep together liberty and security in times of emergency has puzzled generations of scholars but the issue is hardly ever addressed in times of normalcy. In the wake of 9/11, the scholarly debate has taken off quite significantly, especially in the U.S. This paper examines the various explanatory models and normative proposals on the background of legal assessments in a historical and comparative perspective. The aim of the paper is to sort out theoretically different issues that need custom-made handling and to provide an outline for evaluating emergency statutes and regulations.

    Gli anni svedesi di Ernst Cassirer e il confronto con Axel Hägerström2012In: Rivista di filosofia, ISSN 0035-6239, Vol. 103, no 2, p. 277-304Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, some recent literature on Ernst Cassirer and foremost on the years he spent in Sweden (1935-1941) is presented against the background of the contemporary streaming of ideas. Sweden’s philosophical panorama was then characterized to a large extent by the so-called Uppsala school of Axel Hägerström and Adolph Phalén, that developed a strong criticism of subjectivism as well as a non-cognitivist and language-centred form of meta-ethics. Cassirer engaged in dialogue with both the theoretical and practical philosophy he encountered in Sweden – an occasion for him to attune his original philosophical stance – that, today, offers a significant opportunity for scholars to understand the context of an otherwise often overlooked period in his intellectual life.

    Libertà politica e nuove tecnologie: Political liberty and new technologies2015In: Ragion pratica, ISSN 1720-2396, Vol. 44, no 1, p. 9-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Victim of its own success, the concept of «digital democracy» risks to turn into an obstacle, and not a tool in order to grasp reality. We need to look into another field to better understand what issues today’s technologies raise in relation to political freedom, understood as self-determination: the field of Internet governance. There is an interesting debate on how we should handle this new world we have in common that is constituted by the infosphere, starting with the current debates surrounding the reform proposals for the ICANN. The stakes are high (balkanization, loss of neutrality, etc.) but mainstream democratic theory is largely unprepared for the challenge. The paper shows why the debate on the control of critical Internet resources is misleading: the «seats of power» are now elsewhere. In order to move within the private ordering that currently characterizes Internet governance in a way that is respectful of fundamental rights we need to rethink the relationships between social powers.

    Perché la democrazia è nordica? Alf Ross e teoria della democrazia2016In: Analisi e diritto, ISSN 1126-5779, p. 391-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Alf Ross (1889-1979) is not only one of the most renowned figures of Scandinavian Legal Realism, but also an important name in 20th Century theory of democracy. The Danish legal philosopher developed a procedural and value-free theory of democracy: Democracy, as form of government, is about how you decide, not what you decide. In this essay I investigate Ross’ theory of democracy, starting from his famous essay Why Democracy?, namely his contribution to what is now known as “the great Nordic debate on democracy” in which several members of the second generation of the Uppsala school took part. I shall try to illustrate the historical context in which this debate developed in order to shed new light on Ross’ theories; in particular, I aim to show how he combines procedural theory of democracy with the claim that shared values are necessary and the non-cognitivist thesis in the field of meta-ethics. Finally, I shall point out some possible implications.

    Paese che vai, manuale che trovi2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    "L'idea iniziale di questo volume è nata in contesto scandinavo, grazie al simposio 'Paese che vai, manuale che trovi' organizzato da Entela Tabaku Sörman presso il Dipartimento di lingue romanze e classiche dell'Università di Stoccolma nell'autunno del 2016. Tuttavia, le riflessioni delle autrici e degli autori qui rappresentati travalicano i confini dell'Europa settentrionale per restituire il ritratto complesso di uno strumento didattico che attraversa una fase di ridefinizione del proprio ruolo e dei propri contenuti. Che cos'è dunque, oggi, il manuale di italiano?..."

    Il realismo di Matilde Serao tra la passione del gioco e "l'isola di cuccagna"2011In: Arena Romanistica, ISSN 1890-4580, Vol. 8, p. 102-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of lottery gambling has been treated continually by Matilde Serao both in her journalistic and narratives works, especially in connection with the Neapolitan identity. In this article I analyze how her major novel, Il paese di cuccagna, depicts the lottery as a locus of interaction between the modernity of a state institution and the archaic Mediterranean identity, or between the reality of a phenomenon governed by laws of probability and the collective imagination dominated by faith in miracle. The narrative representation of this “malady of the spirit”, as it was defined by Serao, can sometimes go beyond the realist conventions and be submitted to didactic purposes. At the same time, the collective imagination staged by the author seems to harbour a mythical substratum, a miraculous land of Cockaigne, that can be read as a realization of the pleasure principle at the expense of the reality principle. This utopian state of abundance represented by Serao, can be identified in one of her short stories, Trenta per cento, in which the whole city of Naples is transformed in “an immense Gargantuan feast” for a short while.

    Il simbolo scomodo. La figura di Caravaggio nella letteratura italiana2015In: STUDI DI ITALIANISTICA NORDICA: ATTI DEL X CONVEGNO DEGLI ITALIANISTI SCANDINAVI, UNIVERSITÀ D’ISLANDA — UNIVERSITÀ DI BERGEN (REYKJAVIK 13–15 GIUGNO 2013) / [ed] Marco Gargiulo, Margareth Hagen, Stefano Rosatti, Roma: Aracne editrice , 2015, p. 307-331Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the art of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610)has been the subject of growing number of publication, both scientific and narrative. The current article examines a sample of literary texts in order to identify the crucial elements in the construction of the complicated figure of the artist in the Italian contest.The analysis of the texts allows to conclude that the image of Caravaggio and his art have gradually changed, while a number of elements remained the same. Caravaggio’s contemporary poets dedicated lyrics mostly to the paintings belonging to the first half ofhis career, while for later generations, the artist’s name is connectedto the realism and the dramatic use of light of his religious subjects. Caravaggio’s oeuvre was rediscovered during the twentieth century and modern writers like Gadda, Pasolini and Volponi were able to recognize themselves in the realistic, disturbing and carnal art of the early seventeenth century which was also a period of crisis and profound social and cultural change. Later, the writers get more interestedin the dramatic and adventurous life of the artist, discussed vividly by his early biographers. The selection of texts analyzed in a more extensive way include works by Andrea Camilleri, Dario Fo,Ermanno Rea, Francesco Fioretti and Pino Di Silvestro.The modernity of Caravaggio’s art has brought some authors to consider him as our contemporary and to emphasize the parallels between the Italian society of his time and contemporary Italy. The artist is seen as a symbol of civil courage and the decline of a great epoch in the history of Italian culture. The historic and social continuity asserted on the thematic level is reflected on the textual level by recovering of the old Italian sources and stylization of the language. Nonetheless, Caravaggio remains an uncomfortable symbol of the Italian genius, because some elements of his personal life indicate clearly the gap that separates his time from ours.
