John Locke on the Human Soul the Way of Henry More newdigital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
My aim is to highlight how much some controversial aspects of Locke’s views of the human soul may be clarified by confronting them with the thought of the Neoplatonic Henry More. Sound evidence in the Essay and elsewhere suggests that More’s theory of spiritual substances was congenial to Locke, for it represented an attractive alternative both to Cartesian dualism and Hobbes’ materialism. Locke followed More in considering self-motion, not thinking, as the proper attribute of spirits...

Crantor’s Influence on Roman Consolatory Tradition the Case of Cicero newdigital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
This paper aims to discuss Crantor’s influence on Cicero’s Tusculanae Disputationes in order to shed light on the Academic origin of Cicero’s treatment of emotions. The main focus is the role of Crantor’s On Grief in the third book of Cicero’s Tusculanae, since this book is representative of the development of Roman consolatory tradition as well as of the influence, more or less explicit, of Crantor and, more generally, of the Academy as a centre for the pursuit of practical ethics...

Le fonti della libertà nel pensiero di Charles Taylor newdigital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
The aim of this essay consists in investigating the ‘sources’ of freedom in Charles Taylor’s philosophy. In particular, I consider his studies focused on Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Karl Marx, Isaiah Berlin and Michel Foucault, as Taylor develops his own view of freedom engaging a ‘dialogue’ with their philosophical perspectives. He rejects a view of ‘absolute’ freedom, which reflects a radical imposition of one’s will, independently from her/his conditions as natural and social being...

I Sentimenti morali in Descartes e Spinoza Il caso di pietà e invidia, favore e indignazione digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
The article compares Descartes’ and Spinoza’s theory of passions through an analysis of their treatment of pity or commiseration, envy, favor and indignation. By analyzing these affects, the article seeks to accomplish two objectives. on the one hand, it aims to show that complexities of the relationship between Spinoza’s Ethica and Descartes’s Passions de l’ame are ignored if the latter is considered simply as a polemical target of the former. on the other hand, it aims to clarify how Spinoza, starting from anthropological premises opposed to Descartes’, can present a model of a strong or generous man that has many elements in common Descartes’.

La metafisica è morta! Lunga vita alla metafisica! digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
The aim of the paper is to address the main meta-metaphysical question i.e. whether is it possi- ble to do metaphysics and, in the case of an affirmative answer, how should we do it? With such an aim in mind, we will sketch the broad context in which these meta-metaphysical questions arose in the philosophical literature (§ 1); then, we will present what we take to be the three most widespread conceptions of metaphysics that are available in the analytic tradition: the neo-Quinean (§ 2), metaphysics as the science of possibilities (§ 3) and metaphysics as the study of the fundamental structures of reality (§ 4). throughout these paragraphs we will criticize these positions, before cashing out our proposal (§ 5). our interpretation seems to be a species of the recently proposed approach dubbed ‘naturalized metaphysics’; the difference that our proposal has with similar understanding of metaphysics will be clear in the last section.

Analogia e metafora nella metropoli di Simmel digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
The article aims to analyze how analogy and metaphor come into relationship in the essay on the metropolis by Georg Simmel. The definition of the two tropes has been taken from Siegfried Kracauer’s notes about Simmel, on the basis of a contrast between the man of analogies and the man of similitudes that the essay on the metropolis would seem deny...

format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First

The problem of the civil religion has received much attention and commentary from the historians of modern political ideas. Less attention has been given to the medieval frame and tradition on this topic.
