My intervention concerns the problems inherent in the dynamic of increasing specialisation and sectoralisation that currently dominates the development of the scientific apparatus.
I graduated on the problem of the systematic nature of knowledge in the philosophy of Kant and Hegel. I have translated into Italian some of their works and I have published several articles and essays in collective volumes about their epistemological view, particularly with regard to Critique of Pure Reason, Critique of Judgement and to the Science of Logic.
Over the years, I have studied Nietzsche’s philosophy, with particular reference to his epistemology and his conception of science.
I have written essays and translated some of Musil’s works, particularly related to the problem of the system of science and the European culture with reference to the 1920s. I have lectured on these topics in several Italian and European universities
