Partorire con il corpo e con la mente (Italian Edition) by Francesca Rigotti

By Francesca Rigotti

Se ha ragione C. S. Peirce a sostenere che siamo spinti a produrre pensiero soprattutto quando qualcosa ci frastorna, e lo facciamo according to ritrovare l’equilibrio perduto, le incombenze di una madre dovrebbero risultare le più congeniali alla creatività della mente. Ma consistent with los angeles tradizione filosofica occidentale «cuore di mamma» non si concilia affatto con «testa di mamma», anzi sembra precluderne addirittura l. a. possibilità. Dove si muovono le viscere, non c’è posto consistent with l’astrazione. Maneggiando con sapiente garbo e al pace stesso con giudizio saettante dottrine, mitologie, teologhemi, Francesca Rigotti capovolge story luogo comune: le remedy domestiche attivano un sensorio estetico e morale che, lungi dall’ostacolare los angeles riflessione, offre un prezioso vantaggio speculativo. Una prospettiva «praticalista» che ha radici nell’esperienza di Rigotti filosofa e madre di quattro figli, arruola determine esemplari – come los angeles prolificissima G. E. M. Anscombe, studiosa di Wittgenstein – e rifà all’inverso il cammino di una delle metafore più comuni, quella della concezione e del parto intellettuali. Esclusi dalla procreazione carnale, i filosofi se ne sono appropriati in modo traslato, e ne hanno coniato una versione eroica e spiritualizzata che ha finito in step with obliterare l. a. figura della madre. È venuto il momento di restituirle los angeles centralità all’interno delle «cose prime».

Francesca Rigotti insegna Concetti e metafore della politica presso l. a. Facoltà di Scienze della comunicazione dell’Università della Svizzera italiana di Lugano. Collabora all’«Unità» e al «Sole 24 ore». Tra i suoi saggi, tradotti in otto lingue: Il potere e le sue metafore (1992), Il filo del pensiero.
