Pólemos no. 1, 2023: RESPONSABILTY, COMMUNITY AND COMMUNICATION: FORM MODERN PHILOSOPHY TO CONTEMPORARY ETHICS
Edited by Giulia Battistoni and Giorgio Erle
The Weberian distinction between “ethics of intention” and “ethics of responsibility” first emerges in the different perspectives of I. Kant and G.W.F. Hegel with respect to moral action, and specifically to the evaluation of the action and the responsibility of the agent. Although the systematic views of Kant and Hegel have been rejected in the past, since the second half of the 20th century, they have provided fundamental categories for conceptualizing human agency and responsibility.
Polemos no.2, 2022: FURIO JESI. MYTHOPOLITICS.
Furio Jesi. Mythopolitics
Edited by Emanuele Edilio Pelilli and James Martel
Furio Jesi was a scholar from Turin with an enormous variety of interests. His intellectual path started with archaeology and the history of religion, and included anthropology and ethnology, the study of myth and mythology, literary criticism, German studies, the history of ideas and philosophy. As an intellectual figure he is difficult to classify. He was of Jewish origin but not a believer and a militant theorist of the new left. Jesi has only recently attracted the attention of scholars around the world due to the power of his analysis and the depth of his thought. He offers fundamental theoretical insights as well as deeply relevant and timely concepts concerning the performativity of narratives and fictions, the knowability of myth and its political use, the re-semantization and transformation of mythologems, and the critique and questioning of hegemonic temporalities in the Western tradition. These sorts of interventions are much needed in current philosophical and political debates.
