The life of things, the love of things by Remo Bodei( )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From prehistoric stone tools, to machines, to computers, things have traveled a long road along with human beings. Changing with the times, places, and methods of their production, emerging from diverse histories, and enveloped in multiple layers of meaning, things embody ideas, emotions, and symbols of which we are often unaware. The meaning of "thing" is richer than that of "object, " which is something that is manipulated with indifference or according to impersonal technical procedures. Things also differ from merchandise, objects that can be sold or exchanged or seen as status symbols. Things, in the philosophical sense, are nodes of relationships with the life of others, chains of continuity among generations, bridges that connect individual and collective histories, junctions between human civilizations and nature. Things incite us to listen to reality, to make them part of ourselves, giving fresh life to an otherwise suffocating interiority. Things also reveal the hidden aspect of a "subject" in its most secret and least explored side. Things are the repositories of ideas, emotions, and symbols whose meaning we often do not understand. In an unexpected but coherent journey that includes the visions of classic philosophers from Aristotle to Husserl and from Hegel to Heidegger, along with the analysis of works of art, Bodei addresses issues such as fetishism, the memory of things, the emergence of department stores, consumerism, nostalgia for the past, the self-portraits of Rembrandt and Dutch still-lifes of the seventeenth century. The more we are able to recover objects in their wealth of meanings and integrate them into our mental and emotional horizons, he argues, the broader and deeper our world becomes
Breviary of aesthetics : four lectures by Benedetto Croce( )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benedetto Croce (1866-1952) was among the most important of those philosophers of the twentieth century who grappled with issues of pure aesthetics. The series of lectures written in 1912 as the inaugural address of the Rice Institute in Texas and collected under the title Breviario di estetica (Breviary of Aesthetics) is undoubtedly Croce's definitive study of the arts, and the work remains foundational in the philosophy of aesthetics to this day. It has been translated into several languages and continues to attract a wide readership. In this edition, the Breviary of Aesthetics is presented in a brand new English translation and accompanied by informative endnotes that discuss many of the philosophers, writers, and works cited by Croce in his original text. The new translation deliberately preserves the idiosyncratic use of language for which Croce was famous, and emphasizes his writing style, which, together with that of Galileo Galilei, is considered to be among the most lucid in Italian literature. An introduction by Remo Bodei discusses the broader impact of the work and places it in historical context. In short, this edition reintroduces a seminal text on aesthetics to a new generation of English-speaking readers, and represents a significant contribution to the Lorenzo Da Ponte Italian Library series
Geometry of the passions : fear, hope, happiness : philosophy and political use by Remo Bodei( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The passions have long been condemned as a creator of disturbance and purveyor of the temporary loss of reason, but, as Remo Bodei argues in Geometry of the Passions, we must abandon the perception that order and disorder are in a constant state of collision. By means of a theoretical and historical analysis, Bodei interprets the relationship between passion and reason as a conflict between two complementary logics. Geometry of the Passions investigates the paradoxical conflict-collaboration between passions and reason, and between individual and political projects. Tracing the roles passion and reason have played throughout history, including in the political agendas of Descartes, Hobbes, and the French Jacobins, Geometry of the Passions reveals how passion and reason may be used as a vehicle for affirmation rather than self-enslavement."--

We, the divided : ethos, politics and culture in post-war Italy, 1943-2006 by Remo Bodei( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in Italian and English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this account of Italian politics and culture from the founding of the Italian Republic to the present day, philosopher Remo Bodei examines Italian society in one of the most exhilarating and intriguing periods of its history. Following World War II and the defeat of Fascism, the reconstruction of the country and onset of the Cold War brought new challenges to Italy. The Italian people--whose sense of national identity has always been precarious--were divided between the competing political passions and ideologies of Catholicism and Communism, and compelled to negotiate these differences against the backdrop of American cultural and economic hegemony and the utopian enticements of a more equitable society purportedly represented by the Soviet Union. Alternating between imaginative historical research and sharp theoretical analysis, Bodei reconstructs this process of cultural negotiation, showing how the ethos of the Italians was parsed in specific spheres--such as the family, the military, political parties, religion, the judiciary, and organized crime--and the difficulties these divisions raise for the construction of Italian national identity."--Publisher's website

Un'analisi di ampio respiro teorico e storico, che mostra come l'opposizione tra ragione e passioni indica il fallimento di ogni etica e di ogni politica che continuano a oscillare tra norme repressive e atteggiamenti lassistici. A lungo le passioni sono state condannate come fattori di turbamento o di perdita temporanea della ragione. Diverse strategie sono state cosi elaborate per estirparle, temperarle o addomesticarle. Ma, mentre dal punto di vista dell'individuo, si mira all'autocontrollo, dal punto di vista della societa, si tende piuttosto a forgiare, per loro tramite, strumenti di dominio politico. In quanto relativamente fisse nei loro obiettivi e vischiose nella loro composizione, esse erano considerate nel passato suscettibili sia di una rigorosa sistemazione filosofica, sia di un adeguato trattamento politico. Si direbbe invece che oggi siano non soltanto inclassificabili, svuotate di qualsiasi attributo di intrinseca intelligibilita, ma anche soverchiate dai "desideri" (passioni orientate verso mete future, incommensurabili o difficilmente calcolabili). Attraverso un'analisi di ampio respiro teorico e storico, questo libro mostra come l'opposizione tra ragione e passioni indica il fallimento di ogni etica e di ogni politica che continuino a oscillare tra norme repressive e atteggiamenti lassistici. Nella sua struttura, il volume e concepito in termini "geometrici": in forma di un'ellisse disegnata secondo coppie di "fuochi". Paura e speranza, nella loro tensione complementare, ne compongono i nuclei generatori. Da esse -quasi un'archeologia concettuale delle passioni e delle virtu -si snoda il percorso di ricerca, che attraversa anche "valichi" del pensiero filosofico (in particolare Spinoza, nella sua polemica contro gli stoici e Descartes' e alcuni luoghi esemplari della teoria politica (in particolare il giacobinismo francese)

Imaginar otras vidas : realidades, proyectos y deseos by REMO BODEI( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cuando sentimos que nuestra vida se ha quedado estrecha, que no nos basta con lo que somos, nos servimos de la imaginación como antídoto y guía. Gracias a la imaginación, podemos desafiar los condicionantes no elegidos y proyectar la existencia más allá de sus confines; podemos vivir otras vidas, que se alimentan no solo del encuentro con otras personas y situaciones reales, sino también de figuras y modelos procedentes de textos literarios y de los medios de comunicación. Desde que los modelos con los que identificarse se han ampliado, poblándose de celebridades, la construcción de un yo autónomo se ha vuelto más incierta. En este contexto, Bodei nos invita a «crecer sobre sí y alejarse de sí»: apropiarnos de nuestra mejor parte y, a la vez, experimentar trayectorias alternativas. En el fondo, no existe un yo compacto, un todo unitario del que se pueda ser dueño absoluto. Cada uno de nosotros es el fruto de una continua reinvención de sí e interacción con los demás: es en la propia identidad donde crece la diferencia, con todas las dificultades, las ansias, los extravíos que esto comporta. Ser huéspedes de la vida quiere decir vivir en el límite entre interior y exterior, identidad y diferencia, sí mismo y otro. «En los mejores casos –escribe Bodei− respecto a la vida realmente vivida, las vidas imaginadas resuenan como los armónicos naturales en la música, vibraciones que acompañan la nota fundamental, enriqueciendo su timbre.»
