Manifesto of new realism by Maurizio Ferraris( )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophical realism has taken a number of different forms, each applied to different topics and set against different forms of idealism and subjectivism. Maurizio Ferraris's Manifesto of New Realism takes aim at postmodernism and hermeneutics, arguing against their emphasis on reality as constructed and interpreted. While acknowledging the value of these criticisms of traditional, dogmatic realism, Ferraris insists that the insights of postmodernism have reached a dead end. Calling for the discipline to turn its focus back to truth and the external world, Ferraris's manifesto �which sparked lively debate in Italy and beyond �offers a wiser realism with social and political relevance.--
From fictionalism to realism by Carola Barbero( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ontology, realism and anti-realism may be taken as opposite attitudes towards entities of different kinds, so that one may turn out to be a realist with respect to certain entities, and an anti-realist with respect to others. In this book, the editors focus on this controversy concerning social entities in general and fictional entities in particular, the latter often being considered nowadays as kinds of social entities. More specifically, fictionalists (those who maintain that we only ma
Where are you? : an ontology of the cell phone by Maurizio Ferraris( )

History of hermeneutics by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

37 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in Italian in 1988, History of Hermeneutics constitutes the first comprehensive reconstruction of the historical development of hermeneutics. Its translation, augmented by an extensive theoretical afterword especially written by the author for this English-language edition, is an important and timely contribution to philosophy. The breadth of scholarship is impressive: Not only does the author discuss thinkers such as Plato, Vico, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Gadamer, Habermas, and Derrida, but he also considers the contributions of figures outside the contemporary canon of maitres a penser, including Reformation philosophers, biblical interpreters of the German Enlightenment, and contemporary theoreticians. The first two chapters trace the history of the art of interpretation from its origins in Greece as a specialized technique for the transmission of divine messages by the poets and oracles, to the nineteenth century, a time that was characterized by a new awareness of the problem of tradition and by the influence of positivism on the theory of interpretation. In the following three chapters, Ferraris examines the universalization of the domain of interpretation with Heidegger, the development of Heideggerian philosophical hermeneutics with Gadamer and Derrida, and the relation between hermeneutics and epistemology, on the one hand, and the human sciences, on the other. This is an invaluable work for philosophers and for scholars in disciplines as diverse as literary studies, cultural studies, religious studies, history, and the social sciences. At the same time, its clear and concise presentation of the historical unfolding of hermeneutics makes it ideal for use as a textbook in introductory and advanced courses

Mobilisation totale by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pour la première fois dans l'histoire du monde, grâce au téléphone mobile, nous avons l'absolu dans notre poche. Mais avoir le monde en main signifie aussi, automatiquement, être aux mains du monde. Toutes les cinq secondes en moyenne, votre portable se manifeste à vous. Cet ouvrage se penche sur ce phénomène de société et montre comment cette sollicitation permanente se transforme en dispositif de mobilisation. Qui dit mobilisation dit militarisation. Ainsi le mobile nous transforme en militaires, abolissant la distinction entre public et privé, entre jour et nuit, entre travail et repos, en nous mobilisant en permanence : nous voilà sommés d'être sans cesse responsables, de ne rien oublier ni pardonner. Le portable aurait-il contribué à l'émergence d'un nouvel état de guerre?" [Source : site de l'éditeur]
Anima e iPad by Maurizio Ferraris( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Che cosa c'entra l'anima con i'iPad? In apparenza, niente. La prima è quella fitta di rimorso che ci avvisa che siamo vivi e coscienti, il secondo è l'assoluto tecnologico del momento. Tuttavia, questa strana coppia ha un'affinità profonda, e la tecnica, come in un corteo, porta alla ribalta una moltitudine di cose antichissime. Quali? Anzitutto la scrittura. Tanto l'anima quanto l'iPad hanno memoria da vendere e sono blocchi su cui leggere, scrivere, archiviare. Questa scrittura, dentro e fuori della mente, è l'origine della coscienza e del mondo sociale. Perché la scrittura è insieme la base della realtà sociale e la base della nostra coscienza e del nostro pensiero, il cui spettro peggiore è proprio l'Alzheimer, la perdita della memoria vissuta come perdita del pensiero. Ecco perché la grande svolta tecnologica che ha caratterizzato gli ultimi trent'anni ha riguardato proprio la scrittura, e il suo emblema è oggi l'iPad. Anima e iPad sono dunque gemelli. E l'iPad, che quando è spento, con il suo schermo lucido, può servire come specchio per pettinarsi o rifarsi il trucco, quando è acceso, con la sua memoria attivata, diviene letteralmente lo specchio dell'anima. In questo libro parlare di iPad diviene parlare non di un dispositivo tecnologico, ma di noi stessi, della nostra vita, del nostro pensiero, del nostro mondo

Manifiesto del nuevo realismo by Maurizio Ferraris( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El "nuevo realismo" es la toma de conciencia de un cambio de época. La experiencia histórica de los populismos ligados a los medios de comunicación de masas, de las guerras tras el 11 de septiembre y de la crisis económica, ha acabado por desvelar el mentís de dos dogmas del posmodernismo: el de la realidad socialmente construida y manipulable y el de inutilidad de las nociones de verdad y objetividad. El autor intenta distinguir entre lo natural y lo cultural, entre lo construido y lo no construido, diseñando un nuevo espacio para la filosofía y la cultura en general
