Distacchi e altri addii
Author: Gianna Schelotto
Publisher: Edizioni Mondadori
Ogni distacco ha due facce: una che resiste e punta i piedi e una rivolta verso il futuro. Il saggio di Gianna Schelotto è una guida a quell'arte del "buon distacco" che è poi semplicemente l'arte di vivere e di "riuscire", per quanto a ognuno di noi è possibile.

The Ciano Diaries are one of the most important documents recording the events taking place in Europe leading up to the Second World War and how they effected the rest of the world. Galezzo Ciano was in the forefront of those momentous events, not only because he happened to be Mussolini's son in law, but most important because at the age of 35 he was also Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs and one of the major proponents of the Axis Alliance with Nazi Germany.
A Farewell to Truth
Author: Gianni Vattimo
Publisher: Columbia University Press
With Western cultures becoming more pluralistic, the question of "truth" in politics has become a game of interpretations. Today, we face the demise of the very idea of truth as an objective description of facts, though many have yet to acknowledge that this is changing. Gianni Vattimo explicitly engages with the important consequences for democracy of our changing conception of politics and truth, such as a growing reluctance to ground politics in science, economics, and technology. Yet in Vattimo's conception, a farewell to truth can benefit democracy, exposing the unspoken issues that underlie all objective claims. The end of absolute truth challenges the legitimacy of policies based on perceived objective necessities protecting the free market, for example, even if it devastates certain groups or classes. Vattimo calls for a truth that is constructed with consensus and a respect for the liberty of all. By taking into account the cultural paradigms of others, a more "truthful" society freer and more democratic becomes possible. In this book, Vattimo continues his reinterpretation of Christianity as a religion of charity and hope, freeing society from authoritarian, metaphysical dogmatism. He also extends Nietzsche's "death of God" to the death of an authoritarian God, ushering in a new, postreligious Christianity. He connects the thought of Martin Heidegger, Karl Marx, and Karl Popper with surprising results and accommodates modern science more than in his previous work, reconciling its validity with an insistence that knowledge is interpretive. Vattimo's philosophy justifies Western nihilism in its capacity to dispense with absolute truths. Ranging over politics, ethics, religion, and the history of philosophy, his reflections contribute deeply to a modern reconception of God, metaphysics, and the purpose of reality.
