A Synthetic Indicator Method Applied to Putnam’s Social Capital Indicators: The Case of Italy

Marco Carradore
In his 1993 book titled Making Democracy Work, R. D. Putnam (1993) paved the way for many studies on the distribution of social capital in the different Italian regions. Moreover, he introduced the use of some ‘specific’ indicators to measure social capital considered as civicness, which have ‘systematically’ been adopted in subsequent investigations. In the present essay, the synthetic indicator method, which was designed by Pena (1977; 2009), was applied to the data collected by...

DIVENIRE. PICCOLO LESSICO FILOSOFICO DELLA TRASFORMAZIONE

Giacomo Pezzano
This paper suggests that philosophy tells us something about and of the world, mostly of our contemporary world, if we see it as a metamorphic world. Thus, in order to understand our world, I claim that philosophy needs to pose as an explicit question the problem of transformations, or of processes: in this way, transformation can be properly conceived. Then, my contribution aims to present a first “transformative” definition of five concepts or actions, as...

The Dynamics of labor Migration Disguised Human Trafficking in North Wollo, Ethiopia: A Pre-Departure Vulnerability Context to Human Trafficking.

Mulugeta Berihun Asfaw
Abstract The migration of economically and socially vulnerable Ethiopian men, women and children has become a mounting phenomenon. Although their dislodgment is usually disguised with labor migration, their vulnerable position makes them easy targets for traffickers. This study investigated the pre departure vulnerability contexts that render individuals to human trafficking in North Wollo, Ethiopia. Utilizing mixed research approach information was gathered from various groups of purposively selected informants: returnees, law enforcing agent, knowledgeable key informants...

Satisfaction regarding the methods used to evaluate hotel performance

Maria Joao Machado & Miguel Sampaio Silva
This study has four specific objectives: to analyse the association between hotel features and the methods used to evaluate hotel performance; to analyse the convergence between what the theory considers as appropriate performance evaluation methods, and the opinion of the hotels’ financial managers; to identify the factors that explain why the same method is considered appropriate in some hotels and not in others; to analyse whether there is an association between the method used to...

How to Help Female Victims of Domestic Violence? A Dialogue Between Scientific, Professional and Political Expert to Build Networks of Support

Maria Lucia Piga
How and through which instruments can social policies prevent domestic violence? Three of these instruments are, in our point of view: 1) the professional competence of the social workers and caregivers in protecting and preventing; 2) a shared gender-sensitive methodology, to help victims of domestic violence; 3) and the dialogue (necessary but not yet realized) among scientific, professional and political experts. Competent help is the pivot around which prevention strategies can be developed, to support...

SPACE AND LEIB IN NICOLAI HARTMANN’S PHILOSOPHIE DER NATUR: TWO KEY DIMENSIONS OF THE PERSONAL SELF

Carlo Brentari
This paper offers an initial investigation of some philosophical-anthropological and phenomenological aspects of Nicolai Hartmann’s Philosophie der Natur. In this work, besides the critical analysis of the ontological articulation of the natural being, Hartmann shows great interest in the spontaneous, unmediated usage of some categories of natural ontology (space, time, causality, process, and so on). Our particular focus is Hartmann’s analysis of the pre-critical spatial self-perception of the subject, that reveals wide-ranging links with the...

Geografía y libros de caballerías: Martín Fernández de Enciso, Jerónimo de Chaves y Paolo Giovio como fuentes de la cartografía caballeresca

Ana Martínez Muñoz
La geografía recreada por el padre Miguel Daza en El Caballero de la Fe (1583) revela un marcado interés por reproducir con palabras la cartografía del mundo conocido, de acuerdo con los últimos conocimientos aportados por la ciencia de su tiempo. Como el presente trabajo se propone demostrar, ello es posible en virtud del hábil manejo que este clérigo seguntino realiza de diversos tratados contemporáneos, a los que Daza recurre para construir numerosas descripciones geográficas...

Moral y doctrina contra la magia en el Florisando: un estudio a través de su prólogo

Almudena Izquierdo Andreu
El libro de caballerías Florisando (1510) destaca por los fuertes tintes religiosos y doctrinales que su autor, Páez de Ribera, vertió a lo largo de la obra. Este artículo pretende, por un lado, analizar la censura de la magia y de los elementos maravillosos presentes en el prólogo frente a la ortodoxia católica y como remanente literario del género del sermón. Por otro lado, se estudia la figura del caballero que oscila desde el miles...

THE ROUTE OF GOODNESS. EPISTEMIC EMOTIONS, SELF-TRANSFORMATION, AND PERFECTION

Laura Candiotto
The aim of this essay is to detect the role of epistemic emotions in the development of rationality as human perfection. I take the development of excellence as a process of self-transformation, broadening the notion of rationality to include affective powers, and discussing the eudaimonic value of wisdom. Thus, I depict the perfectionist route that brings the epistemic agent to wisdom as prudential value, explaining why being in the route of goodness matters for the...

DALLA PERSONA AL SUBPERSONALE E RITORNO

Carlo Gabbani
The paper aims at elaborating a concept of a person in the light of recent developments in philosophy of mind and psychology, moving from an awareness of the current misfortune of this concept. Firstly, the distinction between personal and subpersonal levels of escription and explanation is examined, also in connection with the discoveries concerning the so-called ‘cognitive unconscious’. Then, the thesis according to which the personal level of explanation is not trustworthy at all (or...

TRASFORMAZIONE E GERMINAZIONE. PER UNA NUOVA FILOSOFIA DELLA NASCITA

Guido Cusinato
The thesis of this paper is that – in order to avoid trivializations – a Philosophy of Birth needs to elaborate a precise concept of transformation and distinguish it carefully from that of adaptation. While transformation goes beyond the limited self-referential perspective of an individual and, on the social level, of the gregarious identity, adaptation aims at strengthening or preserving the old self-referential equilibrium. Transformation is driven by what Zambrano has called, with an exceptionally...

SUL SENSO DI SÉ. AUTOINGANNI, ILLUSIONI, DISILLUSIONI

Roberta Guccinelli
In this paper I would like to describe, even if in broad terms, certain ways, more or less adequate, in which it is possible to experience our own or others’ subjectivity and to acquire from it, in less unhappy cases, a more or less deep knowledge. In particular, I present an ecological model of the Self, which is capable of constituting, in the specific “sense” in which it manifests itself – the self-sense, the sense...

LA RIVOLTA CONTRO LA MORTE: È POSSIBILE UN’IDENTITÀ SENZA MORTALITÀ?

Davide Sisto
This essay will firstly recapitulate the main features of Elias Canetti’s struggle against death, seen as the source of a noxious kind of bond between power and survival. Secondly, the aim of this essay will be to highlight the main negative consequences of a possible war against death: namely, the socio-cultural removal of death and the development of immortalist theories and of transhumanism. Thirdly, and lastly, we will try to demonstrate that there cannot be...

NATALITY. PHILOSOPHICAL RUDIMENTS CONCERNING A GENERATIVE PHENOMENOLOGY

Christina Schües
In light of the dominant role mortality and death have played in the history of philosophy, I give a few examples of the metaphorical appropriation and (dis-)regard of natality from Plato to the Enlightenment and Heidegger’s phenomenology of being-there. In the second part of the paper, I enfold the meaning of birth as transition and disruption, its meaning for intentionality, and its structural importance for understanding the relationality and generativity of human existence. The three...
