Manifesto of new realism by Maurizio Ferraris( )

52 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction to New Realism provides an overview of the movement of contemporary thought named New Realism, by its creator and most celebrated practitioner, Maurizio Ferraris. Sharing significant concerns and features with Speculative Realism and Object Oriented Ontology, New Realism can be said to be one of the most prescient philosophical positions today. Its desire to overcome the postmodern antirealism of Kantian origin, and to reassert the importance of truth and objectivity in the name of a new Enlightenment, has had an enormous resonance both in Europe and in the US. Introduction to New Realism is the first volume dedicated to exposing this continental movement to an anglophone audience. Featuring a foreword by the eminent contemporary philosopher and leading exponent of Speculative Realism, Iain Hamilton Grant, the book begins by tracing the genesis of New Realism, and outlining its central theoretical tenets, before opening onto three distinct sections. The first, 'Negativity', is a critique of the postmodern idea that the world is constructed by our conceptual schemas, all the more so as we have entered the age of digitality and virtuality. The second thesis, 'positivity', proposes the fundamental ontological assertion of New Realism, namely that not only are there parts of reality that are independent of thought, but these parts are also able to act causally over thought and the human world. The third thesis, 'normativity, ' applies New Realism to the sphere of the social world. Finally, an afterword written by two young scholars explains in more detail the relationship between New Realism and other forms of contemporary realism"

From fictionalism to realism by Carola Barbero( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 898 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

Âme et iPad by Maurizio Ferraris( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 150 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

Mobilisation totale by Maurizio Ferraris( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Italian and French and held by 82 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]
