Básicamente nos interesa indagar en los textos de Deleuze sobre su ontología del devenir y para esto tenemos que remontarnos a la filosofía de los presocráticos y a las propuestas de Aristóteles.

By Fernando D'Amico
Price: $5.00 USD. Words: 2,460. Language: English. Published: June 15, 2012 by ALVIS International Editions. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
Phronesys is a compilation of notes, aphorisms and reflections of a philosophical nature.

By Fernando D'Amico
Price: $5.00 USD. Words: 2,490. Language: Italian. Published: June 15, 2012 by ALVIS International Editions. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
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.

Hybris is a sylloge of reflections that invests some central nodes of philosophical thought.

By Fernando D'Amico
Price: $5.00 USD. Words: 3,770. Language: Italian. Published: June 10, 2012 by ALVIS International Editions. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
Hybris è una silloge di riflessioni che investe alcuni nodi centrali del pensiero filosofico moderno. La tensione dell'indagine razionale nel tentativo di infrangere la barriera ontologica, per invadere il campo della metafisica, lascia dietro di se una congerie di frammenti aporetici, molto spesso occultati, perché logicamente refrattari e non commestibili.
