La democrazia e la natura dello pseudoconcetto, di Francesco Postorino
Abstract: To understand the relationship between Croce and the theme of democracy/equality must be analyzed his “religious”, “philosophic” and “scientific” point of view. In the first case, democracy is rejected because it is considered as an anti-vital and mathematical situation; in the second case, is consolidated the transcendental validity of the four categories of the Spirit that coincides with the synthetic language of history and hence at this point the principle of equality is rejected; while scientifically, the democracy of Enlightment, kept in the pseudoconcept dimension, gains a problematic reaction and only with these premises it can secure an alliance with the constitutional liberalism.

Carlo Antoni. Un filosofo liberista: un’anticipazione, di Francesco Postorino
Abstract: Carlo Antoni’s aesthetic theory replies with idealistic feeling to the historical darkness of the contemporary utilitarianism. The artist-child, considerably different from Nietzsche’s «naive child», observes with innocence a world trapped by now in the «It’s said» and in the capitalist consumerism. Antoni, recovering the Croce’s proposition, restores the creative language of art. We present a few pages from the latest book by Francesco Postorino intitled Carlo Antoni. Un filosofo liberista, to be published in September by publisher Rubbettino.
Abstract: In these pages we present a brief profile and a poetry anthology of the Chilean writer Antonio Arévalo. Arrived in Italy from Chile in the mid-seventies, after the advent of the Pinochet dictatorship, he stood out from the start in the South American context of intellectual emigration in Europe. He has promoted also many exhibitions at the Venice Biennale, but he has always fed his poetic vocation. The result is an interesting entry in the panorama of contemporary Latin American poetry.
Para una cartografía de la materia. La poesía de Annalisa Manstretta en español, di Carmen Leonor Ferro
Abstract: Con questa selezione di poesie di Annalisa Manstretta tradotte in spagnolo, si vuole sottolineare il tentativo dell’autrice di dire le cose, di descrivere la luce, le forme, il mondo che la circonda tramite l’uso di parametri intensamente fisici. Con i testi scelti, tratti dalla raccolta Il sole visto di lato, si evidenzia come la Manstretta invochi il “vedere” come strumento per svelare un mondo di solito nascosto all’occhio distratto dello spettatore.
