This contribution intends to briefly present Virgilio Melchiorre’s intense speculative path, tracing through the theme of ‘origin’ a possible coherent thread, aimed at uniting his multiple speculative interests. The starting and finishing point is in fact identified by him in the metaphysical place of consciousness. It is in fact the consciousness and its structural dimensions that have been densely investigated by him, imposing a journey backwards, towards the origin that is, where thinking begins and makes sense. Hence the phenomenological evidence: it is from the heart of the experience that the question about its meaning arises and it is this question that asks on what foundation of intelligibility it rests. The disturbing question, formulated by Leibniz and taken up by Heidegger: «Why is there something rather than nothing?» the Milanese philosopher also asks, convinced that the metaphysical gesture responds to the needs of knowing, as well as the expectations of doing.
