From fictionalism to realism by Carola Barbero( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,129 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
Manifesto of new realism by Maurizio Ferraris( )

43 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retraces the history of postmodern philosophy and proposes solutions to overcome its impasses. 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.--publisher
Where are you? : an ontology of the cell phone by Maurizio Ferraris( )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sheds light on the most philosophically interesting of contemporary objects: the cell phone. "Where are you?"--a question asked over cell phones myriad times each day--is arguably the most philosophical question of our age, given the transformation of presence the cell phone has wrought in contemporary social life and public space.Throughout all public spaces, cell phones are now a ubiquitous prosthesis of what Descartes and Hegel once considered the absolute tool: the hand. Their power comes in part from their ability to move about with us--they are like a computer, but we can carry them with us at all times--in part from what they attach to us (and how), as all that computational and connective power becomes both handy and hand-sized.Quite surprisingly, despite their name, one might argue, as Ferraris does, that cell phones are not really all that good for sound and speaking. Instead, the main philosophical point of this book is that mobile phones have come into their own as writing machines--they function best for text messages, e-mail, and archives of allkinds. Their philosophical urgency lies in the manner in which they carry us from the effects of voice over into reliance upon the written traces that are, Ferraris argues, the basic stuff of human culture.Ontology is the study of what there is, and what there is in our age is a huge network of documents, papers, and texts of all kinds. Social reality is not constructed by collective intentionality; rather, it is made up of inscribed acts. As Derrida already prophesized, our world revolves around writing. Cell phones have attached writing to our fingers and dragged it into public spaces in a new way. This is why, with their power to obliterate or morph presence and replace voice with writing, the cell phone is such a philosophically interesting object

Goodbye, Kant! : what still stands of the critique of pure reason by Maurizio Ferraris( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Goodbye, Kant! delivers a nontechnical, entertaining, and occasionally irreverent overview of Immanuel Kant's Critique of pure reason"--Cover
A taste for the secret by Jacques Derrida( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History of hermeneutics by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

37 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 280 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
Documentality : why it is necessary to leave traces by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in Italian and English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Develops an ontology of social objects on the basis of the claim that registration or inscription--the leaving of a trace to be called up later--is what is most fundamental to these social phenomena
Manifiesto del nuevo realismo by Maurizio Ferraris( )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 230 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
Anima e iPad by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 226 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
Money, social ontology and law by Angela Condello( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting legal and philosophical essays on money, this book explores the conditions according to which an object like a piece of paper, or an electronic signal, has come to be seen as having a value. Money plays a crucial role in the regulation of social relationships and their normative determination. It is thus integral to the very nature of the "social", and the question of how society is kept together by a network of agreements, conventions, exchanges, and codes. All of which must be traced down. The technologies of money discussed here by Searle, Ferraris, and Condello show how we conceive the category of the social at the intersection of individual and collective intentionality, documentality, and materiality. All of these dimensions, as the introduction to this volume demonstrates, are of vital importance for legal theory and for a whole set of legal concepts that are crucial in reflections on the relationship between law, philosophy, and society
Nature and realism in Schelling's philosophy by Emilio Carlo Corriero( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years the international philosophical debate around the so-called 'new' realism has undoubtedly aroused renewed interest in the philosophical positions of Schelling, an author who right in the midst of the philosophical project of German Idealism, forcefully insinuated the natural-realistic objection, leading to a breakaway towards contemporary thinking. In this book Iain Hamilton Grant, Alistair Welchman, Emilio Carlo Corriero, Manfred Frank, Andrea Dezi, Olaf Müller, Maurizio Ferraris display their perspectives on the topic
Mobilisation totale by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 109 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]
Manifest des neuen Realismus by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch, das in Italien bereits mehrere Auflagen erlebt hat, ist ein Manifest, das sich gegen zwei Bewegungen wendet: gegen das postmoderne Denken und seinen Kult der Ironisierung, der das Denken insgesamt unter den Universalverdacht der Fälschung setzt und den Wert der Wirklichkeit bzw. eines Wissens von Wirklichkeit diskreditiert - und gegen einen Konstruktivismus, der die Welt in der Begriffsarbeit seiner Beobachter hervorbringt. Dem postmodernen Angriff auf die Wirklichkeit im Medium der Entdifferenzierung von Sein und Wissen, Feststellen und Akzeptieren, Wissen und Macht wird eine Wie
Postvérité et autres énigmes by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2021 in Italian and French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combien de vérités y a-t-il dans la postvérité? Même s'il est tentant de dire que les fake news ont toujours existé, que le mensonge est un ingrédient constitutif de la politique et de la vie et qu'il n'y a donc rien de nouveau sous le soeil ; même si l'on a envie de couper court en disant qu'il s'agit tout au plus de faire attention à ce que l'on lit comme on fait attention à ce que l'on mange et à ce que l'on boit, la postvérité est devenue un concept philosophique incontournable. Son émergence souligne une caractéristique essentielle du monde contemporain : l'alliance entre le pouvoir extraordinairement moderne d'internet et la plus ancienne des pulsions humaines, celle d'avoir raison à tout prix."--Page 4 de la couverture

Learning to live: six essays on Marcel Proust by Maurizio Ferraris( )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of essays, Maurizio Ferraris explores the world portrayed in Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time. He ponders how memory is tied to self-identification and knowledge; how the passage of time is only perceptible after it has passed; and how life, ultimately, is accurately portrayed in literature in ways that were seen as inconceivable in our youth. Running throughout the book is the sense that memory is all we are; we are what we remember or what others remember of us"--
From Fountain to Moleskine : the work of art in the age of its technological producibility by Maurizio Ferraris( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why should a box of soap pads or an urinal be a cause for reflection? Avant-garde art knows how to answer better than classical and romantic art. What makes art prophetic is not a mysterious inspiration, but the creative answer to emergencies coming from technology and incorporated into objects. What are the pen and the pen drive for? They are there to make plans and renegotiate contracts. Technology does not disappear: we are not dealing with the dematerialization or sublimation of an artwork that becomes pure spirit. Technology is transformed, bringing to the fore the link between artwork and reproducibility as well as between artwork and contract. Contemporary art highlights a character proper to the artworks of all times and types: a document dimension. Indeed, this dimension is not a break with the essence of traditional art: the latter postulates cooperation (and therefore an implicit contract) between author and user
