Il potere, la scienza, la legge. La politica moderna fra virtù e ragione

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The author discusses Merio Scattola's thesis ('Dalla virtù alla scienza', 2003) according to which 'modern' politics, rationalized by the thought of the natural law tradition, has been separated from the unitary system of virtues (typical of practical philosophy) according to a parallel process of moralization of the State. Modernity is then the result of an inner contradiction between the right of the State, understood as perfect claimable right, and the politics of the State (its 'reason'), which repeats the imperfect 'positivity' of Pufendorf's moral ontology.
