  1. Object-Oriented Ontology’s View of Relations: a Phenomenological Critique.Floriana Ferro - 2019 - Open Philosophy 2 (1):566-581.
    This paper is focused on the possibility of a dialogue between Object-Oriented Ontology (OOO) and phenomenology, a dialogue concerning the problem of objects and relations. In the first part, the author shows what is interesting in OOO from a phenomenological perspective and why it should be considered as a challenge for contemporary philosophy. The second part develops the phenomenological perspective of the author, a perspective based on Merleau-Ponty’s “carnal” phenomenology, as well as some suggestions coming from the Italian school of (...)

  2. Merleau-Ponty and the Digital Era: Flesh, Hybridization, and Posthuman.Floriana Ferro - 2021 - Scenari 15:189-205.
    The paper discusses a posthuman reading of Merleau-Ponty’s later works and an application of the concept of flesh to the digital dimension. Whereas, in the Phenomenology of Perception, the world and other beings are seen from an egological and human perspective, in The Visible and the Invisible this perspective is reshaped. Human body is made of the same stuff of other bodies, and they constitute a common being, the flesh of the world. Merleau-Ponty sets out a path through flat ontology (...)

  3. La relazione percettiva nella fenomenologia sperimentale.Floriana Ferro - 2021 - Aesthetica Preprint 117:57-71.
    The paper is focused on the concept of perceptual relation according to experimental phenomenology, belonging to Gestaltist and ecological traditions. First of all, it will be shown the meaning of “relation” in the perceptual domain, including a specific definition of object and subject. For this purpose, the paper will present the difference with the representationalist perspective, which challenges immediate experience and the perception of unified objects. Secondly, the concept of “perceptual relation” will be compared to the idea of Gestalttheorie’s “intrinsic (...)

  5. Beyond Subjectivity. Levinas, Kierkegaard and the Absolute Other.Floriana Ferro - 2012 - Nordicum-Mediterraneum 7 (1).
    Kierkegaard and Levinas are both philosophers of singularity. The latter, in Difficult Freedom and Proper Names, strongly criticizes the former, accusing him of subjectivism, violence and underestimation of ethics. However, the distance separating the two is very short, especially if one reads carefully Kierkegaard’s Concluding Unscientific Postscript. In this article it is argued that both thinkers refuse impersonal totality, conceive Infinity as irreducible, ethics as directed towards the other person and suffering as necessary during lifetime. Above all, both Kierkegaard and (...)

    Virtuality and immanence in Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty.Andrea Colombo & Floriana Ferro - 2023 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 16 (1):7-16.
    In this paper we aim to find a definition of virtual which fits the latest developments of digital technology, but also applies to the analog world. We consider the virtual as related to immanence, taking inspiration from Deleuze’s reading of Bergson and Merleau-Ponty’s last work. We first analyze Deleuze’s idea of immanence, from which virtuality emerges, then we focus on Merleau-Ponty’s concept of flesh and its virtual center. We argue that both philosophers see immanence as a dynamic medium of virtuality, (...)

    Meeting the Gaze of the Robot: A Phenomenological Analysis on Human-Robot Empathy.Floriana Ferro - 2022 - Scenari 17:215-229.
    This paper discusses the possibility of the phenomenon of empathy between humans and robots, starting from what happens during their eye contact. First, it is shown, through the most relevant results of HRI studies on this matter, what are the most important effects of the robot gaze on human emotions and behaviour. Secondly, these effects are compared to what happens during the phenomenon of empathy between humans, taking inspiration from the studies of Edmund Husserl and Edith Stein. Finally, similarities and (...)

    Responsibility and Capitalism. A Phenomenological Way to Approach the Economic Crisis.Floriana Ferro - 2013 - Nordicum-Mediterraneum 8 (1).
    In this paper, a phenomenological perspective on capitalism is given: it is considered as the economic expression of onto-theology. Capitalism is based on egotism, whose principles are private ownership (correlative of intentionality) and free market (correlative of liberty). The current crisis is the symptom of a disease, that is a lack of ethics, an indiscriminate pursuit of egotism. A moral revolution is here proposed as a remedy. The aim is not to destroy capitalism, but to save it with the introduction (...)

    The Undoing of the Subject: Levinas’ Thought on Ipseity.Floriana Ferro - 2019 - Scenari 10:165-180.
    This paper focuses on Levinas’ concept of ipseity and on its change between the 1960’s and the 1970’s, arguing that this change implies the undoing of the subject. In Totality and Infinity (1961), ipseity is considered as the deep core of the I, whereas, in Otherwise Than Being (1974), it is the other person inside the self. Levinas also theorizes another kind of other-in-the-same, which is illeity, the trace of God inside the human soul. It is shown that illeity is (...)

  11. Beauty and Possession. Reversible Eros.Floriana Ferro - 2022 - Philosophy Kitchen 16:167-178.
    The paper aims at connecting the concepts of beauty and possession, traditionally coupled with the male gaze, with eros as felt by women, by homosexuals, and by those who do not identify with a defined gender. First, I will outline the concepts of beauty and possession according to “male thinking”, well formulated by Freud, Plato, Levinas, and Sartre. I will show that, in Western tradition, beauty is seen from a masculine perspective, as a set of charms arousing the subject and (...)

    Pure Experience and Nomadism in James and Deleuze.Floriana Ferro - 2020 - Scenari 13:119-128.
    From the Introduction: "William James and Gilles Deleuze gave two specific definitions of their own ways of thinking: James used the expression “radical empiricism”, whereas Deleuze wrote about “transcendental empiricism”. In both cases, empiricism is brought out as the main feature of their perspective on reality. I will show that both authors share an empiricist background, regarding especially the concept of “pure experience”. [...] Furthermore, I will bring out that Deleuze, even if he shares the same starting point of James’s (...)

    Oggetto, soggetto e destinatario dell'insegnamento filosofico: una riflessione teoretica.Floriana Ferro - 2015 - Forum. Supplement to Acta Philosophica 1:379-390.
    Nel presente scritto, l’attività di insegnamento filosofico viene sottoposta ad interrogativi riguardanti gli elementi che la caratterizzano, ovvero ciò che viene insegnato, chi insegna e a chi si insegna. Nasce così una riflessione teoretica su tre concetti basilari, ovvero la filosofia, il soggetto e l’altro. Attraverso le suggestioni di grandi pensatori, in primis l’Heidegger di Essere e Tempo, ma anche Platone, Aristotele, Cartesio, Deleuze e Levinas, vengono proposte possibili definizioni dei concetti suddetti. La filosofia viene così considerata in senso statico, (...)

    Fenomenologia della carne e tecnontologia digitale.Floriana Ferro - 2022 - la Filosofia Futura 18:49-64.
    In questo testo si affronta, a livello ontologico, la questione della tecnica in relazione allo sviluppo del digitale. Parlare di “tecnontologia digitale” implica che il digitale porta alla luce l’homo technicus in maniera peculiare rispetto alla dimensione analogica. Non avviene un processo di smaterializzazione, bensì di ridefinizione della materia e di pervasività della dimensione digitale nei confronti della nostra corporeità e della nostra esistenza quotidiana. Viene proposta una lettura della relazione con la tecnologia digitale basata sulla fenomenologia della carne, traendo (...)

  19. Dal corpo allo spirito. L’estetica empatica di Edith Stein.Floriana Ferro - 2021 - Mistica e Filosofia (II):23-42.
    Il presente studio si pone l’obiettivo di analizzare l’antropologia trinitaria di Edith Stein, caratterizzata dall’interazione tra corpo, anima e spirito. A questo scopo, viene effettuata una lettura estetica di tale antropologia, a partire dalla dimensione sensibile ed espressiva. Ciò è possibile grazie a un’apertura originaria dell’individuo all’alterità, apertura che si verifica attraverso modalità empatiche. La prima parte dell’articolo è dedicata a Il problema dell’empatia, in cui viene esplicitato come avviene la costituzione dell’io tramite l’incontro con l’altro. L’aisthesis del Leib e (...)

    La filosofia a scuola e le relazioni con gli altri.Floriana Ferro - 2023 - Torino: L'Harmattan Italia.
    La ricerca sulla quale si basa il volume ha coinvolto cinque istituti superiori di Udine e si è svolta attraverso interviste agli studenti e ai loro docenti del triennio. Agli intervistati è stato chiesto se la filosofia insegnata a scuola riuscisse a stimolare un processo di mutamento, o perlomeno di chiarificazione, della visione del mondo e, soprattutto, se avesse un impatto sulle relazioni con gli altri. Si è inteso così operare un rivolgimento della filosofia su se stessa e sul suo (...)

    Perceptual Relations in Digital Environments.Floriana Ferro - 2023 - Foundations of Science 28 (4):1071-1084.
    The aim of the paper is to develop the concept of perceptual relation and to apply it to digital environments. First, the meaning of perceptual relation is phenomenologically analyzed and defined as the interaction between the whole and its parts, which is theorized by the founders of Gestalt psychology. However, this relation is not considered as an intrinsic, but as an extended one, implying also the relation with the surrounding world (Umwelt). Subsequently, this concept of extended relation is applied to (...)
