Hope or despair? – Meeting organized by the ass. circolarmente

On Thursday 27 October 2022 at 8.45 pm at the Daniele Bertotto auditorium, at the Defendente Ferrari middle school in via Cavalieri di Vittorio Veneto, 3 the association Circularly invites you to participate in the meeting entitled Reading our present between the principle of despair and hope principle.
In an era that has made an alternative to the tragedies announced in the present inconceivable – even before it is impracticable – the comparison between Ernst Bloch’s The Hope Principle and Günther Anders’s The Desperation Principle easily runs the risk of appearing as a nostalgic homage to the history of philosophy of the twentieth century, rather than as a destabilizing provocation towards our extraordinary ability to get used to the worst. While claiming opposing philosophical demands, these two philosophical masterpieces can reveal themselves especially today of a heretical outdatedness precisely because of their common and inexhaustible rebellion against any inertial temptation.
