The Department of Human Sciences proudly announced the publication of Aretè Volume 4, Guglielmo Marconi University International Journal of Philosophy, Human and Social Sciences, with the homonymous name.
Aretè is an international scientific magazine “double-blind and peer-reviewed” created in December 2015. The magazine, available both online and printed, provides articles concerning central philosophical debates and issues, in Italian, English, French and German, with particular reference to the discourses between philosophy, humanities, and social sciences. Special attention is given to the philosophical historiography, to the hermeneutics of the texts that characterized Western thought, to the most relevant and current ethical-political, historical, pedagogical, aesthetic, philological, literary and linguistic issues.
Furthermore, considerable attention is also given to the works marking the debates regarding Humanities, Social Sciences, and Cultural Studies.
According to the editors, philosophy constitutes a creative and productive force capable of affecting current affairs only when it considers the complexity of the “world of life” (the Lebenswelt of which Edmund Husserl also spoke) with the multiplicity of plans that characterize it. Benedetto Croce highlights the need to open philosophical rationality to the non-strictly-philosophical elements of culture in his Aesthetica in Nuce. Emphasizing that, “Philosophy always originates in the motion of life [...]. New philosophical thoughts, or their germs, are often found alive and energetic in books that are not professional nor systematic philosophers “.
