What is philosophy?

Wikipedia defines it as a “field of study that questions and reflects upon the world and on the human being, investigates the sense of being and human existence, tries to define nature and analyzes the possibilities and the limits of knowledge”. (from https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filosophia)

The definition seems ok. However, we will try to overcome this wikipedian presentation to try to show its further and more subtle aspects. The purpose of this site is in fact to awaken questions that lie in each of us and are ready to be asked.

However, to avoid misunderstandings, it should be clear that there is no guarantee that there will be certain and satisfactory answers. In fact, often and willingly, the answers will be additional questions ready to stimulate our curiosity and desire to investigate going beyond the visible and known.

Symbol of our path will be the owl of Minerva, the goddess born of the head of Jupiter. Goddess of justice and wisdom, Minerva is the Roman version of Athena, the goddess who accompanied Ulysses, the symbol of excellence in the ratio and knowledge.

Everyone will have the opportunity to  ask questions and express opinions and ideas.

In fact, the articles will be accompanied by an English version in order to help everyone to understand. I would conclude with an invitation to visit the sections that, I hope, will soon be enriched by articles and reflections.

Good philosophy!
