Dasein e Humanitas. La critica heideggeriana all'umanesimo tra Cura dell'esistenza e custodia dell'ente

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The critique of humanistic interpretations as a "person", as "being composed of spirit, soul and body", is aimed at claiming a level of discourse that “allows the event of the truth of being to happen” placing the 'humanitas on a higher level capable of restoring a new dignity to man. The invitation to overcome any anthropologism and subjectivism inaugurates a perspective for the contemporary world in which, by virtue of such decentralization, man is not master of other entities. Although many posthumanisms start from the critique of humanism, the very difference - albeit in the proximity - between the essence of action and that of the technique resolutely affirmed by Heidegger represents a barrier to that posthumanism which believes that man can and it must be redesigned by technology, which ultimately thinks that technology can produce man
