Hans Jonas and His Use of Plato’s Theaetetus digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2021 - 4. Alexius Meinong and His Contemporaries
Year: 2021
It can safely be argued that Plato plays a crucial, if not unique role for Hans Jonas. When pondering whether to assign the palm to Kant or to Plato in his Erinnerungen, Jonas himself admits: «With Plato [...] you have to go back a much greater distance to make him applicable to the present. But of course Plato is the greater one, the one we have to study again and again from scratch, the one we must discover, whereas we can get to know Kant thoroughly. With Plato, you’re never finished, that’s the great foundation [Grundlegung] for all of Western philosophy»...

John Locke on the Human Soul the Way of Henry More digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2021 - 4. Alexius Meinong and His Contemporaries
Year: 2021
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 digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2021 - 4. Alexius Meinong and His Contemporaries
Year: 2021
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...

La tesi di Brentano e le sue influenze nel pensiero analitico digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2022
The aim of this paper is to show the historical influence exercised by the so-called Brentano’s thesis. According to Brentano intentionality, i.e. the property of being about something or having content, is both necessary and sufficient condition of the mental: all and only mental phenomena exhibit intentionality. From this point of view, Brentano’s thesis responds to a cartesian, dualistic need, insofar as it tries to distinguish the mental from the physical...

The Relationship between Introspection and Folk Psychology: An Overview digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA - 2021 - 3
Year: 2021
The epistemic status of introspection remains a controversial topic. Due to its subjective character, introspection is not an easy fit with natural sciences or a physicalistic picture of the mind. In literature, introspection is conceived as dealing only with macro-cognition and not with micro-cognition, the supposed object of study of scientific psychology. This essay discusses the epistemic status of introspection in light of its relationship with folk psychology and spells it out through an analysis of the positions of Wilkes, Alston, Schwitzgebel, and Churchland...
