Perspective and Spatiality in the Modern Age

Fausto Fraisopi
the domain of Art critique and becoming a philosophical argument. How can we think of Perspective as symbolic Form? Is Perspective really a symbolic form? Why is Perspective so important? Because at the beginning of the Modern Age, Perspective as spiritual figure grounds many symbolic or even many scientific constructions. We could we say that perspective open the foundation of modern science as such. The “Geometrization” of Vision, beginning with perspective, will be for us...

The Normativity of Institutions

Francesco Guala
Some philosophers have claimed that normativity is an essential feature of social institutions, and have identified the source of normativity in collective intentionality. In this paper I argue that (1) normativity is not essential for social institutions; (2) normativity has many sources and it is unlikely that a single theory is able to account for them all; (3) a powerful conception of institutions – the “rules in equilibrium” account – provides an adequate framework to...

The Social Impact Theory of Law

Joshua Keton
Margaret Gilbert’s work on sociality covers a wide range of topics, and as she puts it “addresses matters of great significance to several philosophical specialties – including ethics, epistemology, political philosophy, philosophy of science, and philosophy of law – and outside philosophy as well” (Gilbert 2013, p. 1). Herein I argue that Mark Greenberg’s recent call to eliminate the problem of legal normativity is well motivated. Further, I argue that Gilbert’s work on joint commitment,...

Shared Norms and Nomotrophic Behaviour

Lorenzo Passerini Glazel
The paper proposes to construe the “interventions in the lives of others when one thinks that the others’ behaviour is wrong” (Devlin and Gilbert), and the “reactions to disappointment of normative expectations” (Niklas Luhmann) under the notion of “nomotrophic behaviour”, i.e. a behaviour that aims at the maintenance of a norm in the event of its infringement. Subsequently, some of the implications of nomotrophic behaviour at an epistemological level (as a clue for inferring norms...

May Joint Commitment Stabilize Modus Vivendi?

Roberta Sala
This contribution intends to extend my previous attempt to defend modus vivendi as an alternative way to include people who do not share the essentials of a liberal society. The idea was to respond to a claim to realism: besides loyal citizens, whose doctrines overlap on the basics of a fair society, there are people whose loyalty towards institutions is not be wholehearted – since they do not concur to their public justification – but...

The Anatomy of Collusion

Helen Lauer
Received models of cooperative action overlook the way that the social environment itself features in collective intentions; recognising the divergent ways that norms function can help explain how people collaborating covertly are not considered irrational even though the things they are doing are totally contrary to the principles and convictions they sustain as individual agents.

Twentieth-century wars in history teaching and public memory of present-day Croatia

Snježana Koren
The paper focuses on the European LeFamSol Project dedicated to women native to Sub-Saharan Africa.

The core idea is to train female African migrants to become “resource persons” for newcomers in order to help them in mobilising their survival strategies in South Europe by facilitating the circulation of information and knowledge on national...

Apprendere la concorrenza: l’emigrazione nei manuali scolastici europei tra la fine dell’Ottocento e i primi decenni del Novecento

Paolo Bianchini
The paper reconstructs Antonio Banfi’s ideas and representations about religion and religious thought, on the basis of some texts that he wrote within 1925 and 1940. In the same time, the A. documents the pedagogical thesis of Giovanni Maria Bertin, who was a follower of Banfi, and who also started in Bologna University a pedagogical School, in the first Fifty years. In the Author’s opinion, Banfi’s ideas were very relevant in order to ground religious...

L’europeismo ai tempi dell’Illuminismo: Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Erminio Maglione
This analysis of passages from Rousseau’s political work intends showing the structuring of the reflection about the Europeanism in his philosophy. The chosen parts describe how Europe should be at the time of enlightened rationalism with an explicit programmatic intent: it should be organized by the principle of federalism based on an international arbitration able to guarantee the costums and the common Christian-Roman origin.

Europe’s paradoxes

Alberto Bagnai
The essay aims at highlighting some fundamental paradoxes affecting the very structure of the European Union in its current organization. The currency union is not only insufficient, but ultimately impairing the economic efficiency of the Eurozone. The economic issues that the European Union project was designed to respond to do not correspond to the present circumstances. The European institutions and the European left-wing parties have lost sight of the proper parameters of social justice. Left-wing...

Il corpo e l'arte come risorsa formativa all'Università: un percorso verso la danza-movimento terapia per futuri formatori

Elena Mignosi
Based on a personal experience of workshop with university master's students for over ten years, the article shows how a dance-movement therapy course can quickly open up new existential perspectives, enabling new narrative about one’s relationship with the world and increasing reflexive capacity and self-awareness. The students seem to find a way for integrating different parts of themselves, for accepting their difficulties and weaknesses, for reflecting and developing deep contacts, overcoming insecurity and discovering their...

Consumer attitudes and behavior: the theory of planned behavior applied to food consumption decisions

Icek Ajzen
The author compares the multi-attribute and subjective expected utility (SEU) models popular in research on consumer behavior to the approach offered by the theory of planed behavior (TPB). Unlike the multi-attribute and SEU models, the TPB relies not on revealed preferences to infer the underlying decision process but instead on direct assessment of its theoretical constructs. According to the theory, the consumer’s behavior is a function of intention to perform the behavior in question; the...

Are Young Female Doctors Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling in Italy?

Elena Spina & Giovanna Vicarelli
In the second half of the twentieth century, the feminization of medicine increased in large part of Western Europe. Due both to cultural and social models and to welfare policies, there was a very limited increase in the female medical profession throughout the first half of the 1900s in Italy, and a relatively larger one in the second half. Currently, the female incidence is 39.8%, placing Italy among the last positions in Europe. The results...
