The World We Know

by Maurizio Bisogno We experience the world through our body, although we are not passive recorders of it. The ancient Greek word pathos refers to the wrong response to the external impressions. The correspondent verb is pathein, to suffer: we do not just suffer what happens in the world. In other words, we are not solely a receiver of what happens “out there”. We are a constituent of what we experience. Our responsibility in the making of our world starts at the most basic phase of our ability to perceive through our body. In fact, we interpret constantly and selectively

Dialectics of thinking and dialectics of reality.

Dialectics of thinking and dialectics of reality. Thinking and reality or real thinking. Life’s sense and suffering. Is the real, the thinking? Or thinking is real – but what is reality? When I spot a conflict in the thinking, then will it be possible to discover the same conflict as a reality outside the thinking? It is like a role game, mixture of arguments for the practice of an accomplished discourse. Man asks to understand beyond just acting.

Some Observations about Reality

by Maurizio Bisogno My first line, then, will be a question about reality and sense perception. Without making any erudite reference, I should phrase it as it follows: is what I call reality given to me by my perception? (I do not mean only external perception, but internal perception as well). What I see, what I hear, what I touch, what I smell, what I taste, what I feel, what I remember, what I know: all those aspects contributes to my idea of what is real. And in this sense, the idea of reality can be subjective or relative to
