    A political ontology for Europe: Roberto Esposito’s instituent paradigm
    Continental Philosophy Review 54 (3): 367-386. 2021.
    The aim of my article is to relate Roberto Esposito’s reflections on Europe to his more recent proposal of instituent thought. I will try to do so by focusing on three theoretical cornerstones of Esposito’s thought: the first concerns the evidence of a link between Europe, philosophy and politics. The second is deconstructive: it highlights the inadequacy of the answers of the most important contemporary ontological-political paradigms to the European crisis, as well as the impossibility of inte…Read more

    Conflitto e profezia. Mario Tronti e Sergio Quinzio
    Giornale Critico di Storia Delle Idee 1 171-180. 2019.
    This essay aims to demonstrate that the concepts of conflict and prophecy play a key role in the thought of Mario Tronti and Sergio Quinzio – even though they are interpreted in a different way.

On the one hand, the horizon of politics and institutions, the horizon of practice; on the other, that relative to the definition of the ‘humanity of the human’, the theoretical horizon. To talk about the ‘politics of vulnerability’, we need to understand what is meant by vulnerability and the dimensions it implies. In this particular case, I want t…Read more

    Politics and ‘spiritual education’ in Simone Weil’s last writings
    Logos. Anales Del Seminario de Metafísica [Universidad Complutense de Madrid, España] 56 (2): 223-234. 2023.
    The aim of this article is to relate the concept of 'force' to that of 'spiritual education'. Starting from it, we can better understand the link, fundamental for Simone Weil also in the political sphere, between immanence and transcendence. The predominance of force over immanence seems, indeed, to decree the impossibility of a 'just' politics. Weil shows that awareness of the predominance of force in this world is a first and indispensable step towards justice. This explains the centrality tha…Read more
