The Subject We Present

We can say that focus the attention of philosophy: knowing. acting. waiting. We will ask ourselves about the human condition in the s. XXI. for what we can – or believe we can – know. for the conditions and limits of this knowledge. for how what we know or believe we know conditions or justifies our moral and political actions and. therefore. social life.
