"Fede e giustizia: la lezione di Rosario Livatino"

Abstract: The news that the process of beatification of Rosario Livatino has begun provides us with an excuse to learn more about this young judge killed in 1990. He was a good example of how religious belief and strong convictions regarding the law and the pursuit of justice can come together. Regarding justice, Livatino underlined two important ideas: the clarity and […]

"Votare non basta. Il patto eletto-elettore nella crisi democratica"

Abstract: Democracy requires its elected leaders to account for their actions, especially when it comes to voting time. For a growing number of electors, however, participation in the life of the polis has to be more that simply putting a mark on the ballot paper. One of the crucial unanswered questions of modern democratic systems is how citizens can be involved […]

"La nascita della sociologia e la relazione sociale"

Abstract: Se si dovesse individuare un elemento che accomuna tanto i “precursori” quanto i “fondatori” del pensiero sociologico, esso va individuato nella relazione sociale. E’ grazie a questa categoria che storicamente la sociologia si è differenziata dai saperi che l’hanno preceduta, in primo luogo la filosofia politica e l’economia. Nell’800 la necessità di una nuova prospettiva era imposta dal mutamento sociale, […]

"Educazione liberale e indebolimento della democrazia. Una risposta dal principio di fraternità"

Abstract: In spite of the effort of educators to transmit the culture and values of democracy, we are witnessing their decline. This analysis of the decline examines rst of all the model of liberal education. Liberal or humanistic education (as opposed to “professional formation”) is an approach that is better suited to the transmission and formation of those values and basic […]

"L’oggi del diritto: tramonto o ‘nuovi’ albori?"

Abstract: The deep crisis in law, to the point of “juridical nihilism”, requires us to look beyond the apparent absence of light on the horizon. Starting from the assumption that law is at the service of human beings, we trace the relational implications of this, and reconsider “juridical relationships” as relationships “ad alterum”. In this perspective, the idea of relationship emphasises […]

"Comunione: ‘spazio condiviso’ per un dialogo possibile tra economia e diritto"

Abstract: Practitioners of jurisprudence examining the relationship between law and economics, find themselves involved today in a debate that emphasises the differences between the two. The Economy of Communion (EoC), which has already been studied by economists is, instead, an opportunity for finding common ground between them. An example is the concept of communion which, while present in law and legislative […]

"La dignità umana tra relazione e responsabilità"

Abstract: In the field of law, human dignity is not a new subject for study and enquiry, for it lies at the heart of every culture, dealing as it does with what it means to be human. There are new challenges today, however, in science and in teaching, regarding the understanding of the “identity” and “dignity” of human beings. Some cultural […]

"Alle ‘fonti’ del diritto tra norma e vita"

Abstract: The author compares the way human relations are dealt with by the legal professions with the ideas of Chiara Lubich, and the way she looks at humanity with all its contrasts, divisions, wounds and separation. After this introduction, the author develops an approachto research on the law that goes back to the “sources”, in order to broaden its horizons rather […]

"Grida di piazza e ‘silenzi’ in cerca di ascolto"

Abstract: Certain words stand the test of time and their novelty never wears off. Such is the word “pact”, which when used in Pope Francis’s Evangelii Gaudium, means “a social and cultural pact”, an accord about life in society. It concerns the progress of peoples and their cultures. This essay deals with the contemporary search for new insights, on the part […]
