A CONTRIBUTION TO THE COSMOPOLITIC DEBATE

by Franco Astengo

The phenomena that determine the change in the political phase can be summarized as follows:

a) The crisis (in the classical sense of “krisis”) of the “State – Nation” (the German philosopher Teubeuer writes of “open system of the new world”);

b) The new quality of the global economic and financial situation and its specific European aspects, of which some key points must be revealed (public debt / private debt, etc.)

c) The highlighting of a real paradigm shift in “political action” with the emergence of a sort of ideology of “technical politics”, which finds in an “Italian case” a sign quite different from what we were historically accustomed to considering, a relevant welding point. A paradigm shift that finds in the cultural homologation between the various subjects present in the Italian political system substantially in agreement in the construction of a regime “with a single thought”. Our perspective must be that of the construction of a large field of opposition for the alternative to intervene in politics, society, cultural debate, institutions.
