La Società degli Individui
ISSN (printed): 1590-7031. ISSN (electronic): 1972-5752.
In 2002 La Società degli individui (Society of Individuals) won the "Viaggio a Siracusa" prize for philosophical journals. The journal was born out of the long research experience of a group of Italian and foreign scholars from a range of disciplines (philosophy, history, sociology, psychology) and their more recent experience in courses and university seminars, an experience which led to the creation, in Parma, of the 'Centre of Research into Individualism and Community'. The history, exponents and phenomenology of individualism, the relationship between individualism and modernity, the meaning of an individualistic ethic, the moments of conflict and convergence between traditions of solidary thought and individualistic thought, the means of possible mediation between self-affirmative needs and those of a community - these are subjects that La società degli individui addresses through contributions based on different methodologies. The section Essays (Saggi) hosts contributions of a theoretical or historical nature, emphasising issues relevant not just to specialist debate; in the Archive (Archivio), considerable space is given to papers, previously unpublished in Italian, which address a theme (different in each issue) from a long-term historical perspective; the Interval (Intermezzo) proposes brief literary or poetical suggestions, experimenting possible communication between different languages; the Two Voices (A due voci) section solicits discussion on relevant cultural and social events, while the Notes (Note) section provides information to help the reader build up a small specialist library.
