Phronesys è una silloge di note, aforismi e riflessioni di carattere filosofico. Nella Phronesi l’intenzionalità del pensiero esce fuori dalla sua matrice teoretica per eventuarsi, reclamando la sua attitudine operativa, nell’ambito della sfera pratica. Qui l’aporia è data dall’ambivalenza del riflesso etico-morale che accompagna la dispersione dell’essere nei rivoli dell’ente.
