They are the classics that, freeing us from the saturation and the coils of the present, reconnect us to the memory of the deceased and question us about responsibility towards the unborn, making us participants in that great community – res publica maior called it Seneca – which precedes us and exceeds us. The invitation that Max Weber, echoing classical wisdom, addressed to young people who, in the days marked by the rubble of the First World War, asked what they should do is current again. He simply replied: >.
On Friday 6 November, the economist Stefano Zamagni will reflect on what for Plato was the queen of the cardinal virtues, now devoid of meaning and associated with figures of little charm: Prudence. The idea of prudence that the classics have transmitted to us is that of the ability to govern passions and direct action to the pursuit of a universal common good, an attitude that we need more than ever today. Dominant economic thinking mistakenly conceives prudence only as risk aversion, while in reality the problem is to see beyond the short-term benefits and act on a long-term view. Here, then, is that the real challenge is to transfer the principle of prudence to the collective sphere and make it live within the design of institutions and corporate governance systems.
On Tuesday 10 November the historian Franco Cardini will bring the word Honor to the fore. What about honor? A word with a demanding history, which has its high moments in antiquity and in the feudal age where in the heart of the chivalrous world it becomes an indispensable intangible value, differentiating itself into complex hierarchies and subtle variables of caste, socioeconomic condition, age, sex. Today’s society smiles at those meanings, but far from constituting an archaic residue, definitively replaced by the more democratic concept of dignity, today honor can still speak to our imagination, and re-propose its never exhausted political value.
On Friday 13 November, the reflection of the anthropologist Marco Aime will focus on the word Community. A welcoming environment, with a slow pace, a whole made up of close and warm ties: the word “community” brings us back with nostalgia to a world that seems inevitably consigned to the past. How and when did we lose the ability to keep the community alive? Urban-industrial society marked the first profound change, weakening relationships and rituals to which a shared memory was also entrusted. But the decisive blow came from the Net, where communities mediate relationships through a screen, without shared physical spaces, without empathy, without encounters. Speed replaces quality, tweets for conversation, emoticons for feelings. But in the era of non-places, of the eternal present and of friendship reduced to like, the need for community remains. What to do to try to reconstruct an “we” founded on authentic bonds of proximity?
Finally, on Friday 20 November the Nuccio Order review will close with the word Solidarity, a value that seems forgotten in the brutality of the current social situation. The selfish insular vision of human beings, which has favored the electoral successes of many racist and homophobic parties in the world, is denied by some beautiful pages of great classics: it is not true that every man is a separate island; on the contrary, humanity is a single continent in which all its inhabitants are united by bonds of brotherhood and solidarity. From Seneca to Virginia Woolf, from John Donne to Walt Whitman, from Montaigne to Tolstoy, from Francis Bacon to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry the classics teach us, as Albert Einstein recalled, that “only a life lived for others is a life that it deserves to be lived ».
