?Quando dico ?ti amo? che cosa sto dicendo di preciso? E soprattutto chi parla? Il mio desiderio, los angeles mia idealizzazione, l. a. mia dipendenza, il mio eccesso, los angeles mia follia? E come si trasforma questa parola quando il desiderio si satura, l?idealizzazione delude, los angeles dipendenza si emancipa, l?eccesso si riduce, los angeles follia si estingue? Non c?è parola più equivoca di ?amore? e più intrecciata a tutte quelle altre parole che, in line with los angeles logica, sono los angeles sua negazione. Tutti, chi più chi meno, abbiamo fatto esperienza che l?amore si nutre di novità, mistero e pericolo e ha come suoi nemici il pace, los angeles quotidianità e los angeles familiarità. Nasce dall?idealizzazione della personality amata di cui ci innamoriamo according to un incantesimo della fantasia, ma poi il pace, che gioca a favore della realtà, produce il disincanto e tramuta l?amore in un affetto privo di passione o nell?amarezza della disillusione. Qui Freud ci pone una domanda: ?Quanta felicità barattiamo in cambio della sicurezza??.?Umberto Galimberti ci consegna un quantity (che in parte raccoglie suoi articoli pubblicati dal quotidiano ?la Repubblica?) in cui l?acutezza del pensiero penetra i meandri del sentimento e del desiderio e il lettore morale registra i mutamenti intervenuti nella modalità di vivere (e patire) le dinamiche dell?attrazione, il patto con l?amato/a, l. a. trama di autenticità e menzogna del rapporto amoroso, i percorsi del piacere (dall?onanismo alla perversione). Sullo sfondo si muove, come un fantasma, continuamente evocato e rimosso, quello che propriamente o impropriamente gli uomini non smettono di chiamare amore.

By Michel Onfray
Un siècle après los angeles mort de Nietzsche, notre époque n’a toujours pas examiné en quoi sa philosophie était porteuse d’immenses révolutions. Entre lui et nous, en effet, s’intercalent plusieurs varieties de parasites : une sœur qui dénatura son héritage, deux guerres et des idéologies qui brandirent son nom pour servir des motives qu’il aurait, à coup sûr, récusées, et, plus gravement, une impressionnante série de lectures de mauvaise foi et d’interprètes mal intentionnés… Tout ceci contribue à produire de Nietzsche une picture fausse, floue, dangereuse – qu’il était pressing, à tous égards, de rectifier. C’est à cette tâche que s’emploie Michel Onfray dans ce texte inédit, qui date de 1988. Pour l’auteur hédoniste du Traité d’athéologie – qui a toujours revendiqué ce que sa réflexion devait au Gai savoir –, il s’agit là d’un ambitious exposé du nietzschéisme originel et d’une émouvante « reconnaissance de dette » à l’endroit d’un philosophe majeur. D’où cette « advent à Nietzsche » dont le ton se veut, à los angeles fois, pédagogique et empreint de gratitude.

By Jean Baudrillard
In 1976, Jean Baudrillard despatched this essay to the French journal Critique, the place Michel Foucault was once an editor. Foucault used to be requested to answer, yet remained silent. Forget Foucault (1977) made Baudrillard immediately notorious in France. It was once a devastating revisitation of Foucault's contemporary History of Sexuality—and of his complete oeuvre—and additionally an assault on these philosophers, like Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, who believed that hope may be innovative. In Baudrillard's eyes, hope and gear have been interchangeable, so hope had no position in Foucault's paintings. there is not any greater advent to Baudrillard's polemical method of tradition than those pages, within which Baudrillard dares Foucault to satisfy the problem of his personal concept. This Semiotext(e) version of Forget Foucault is observed through a discussion with Sylvère Lotringer, "Forget Baudrillard," a reevaluation by means of Baudrillard of his lesser-known early works as a post-Marxian philosopher. Lotringer presses Baudrillard to provide an explanation for how he arrived at his notorious extrapolationist theories from his roots within the 19th and early 20th century social and anthropological works of Karl Marx, Marcel Mauss, and Emil Durkheim.

Simplicius' maximum contribution in his remark on Aristotle on Physics 1.5-9 lies in his remedy of subject. The sixth-century thinker starts off with a necessary elucidation of what Aristotle ability through 'principle' and 'element' in Physics.
