Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] To disprove the theory, proposed by Gentile, Sicily in the last century has been open to cultural influences from Italy and Europe. At the beginning of '900, a renewed interest in the thought of Rosmini gave rise to numerous and detailed studies about this whole philosophical production of the Abbot from Rovereto. John Pullara, Sicilian Catholic involved in politics, it can definitely be considered among those who studied Antonio Rosmini, or at least had the opportunity to read many of his works. The work of Pullara, we are dealing with in this paper, was conducted mainly on youth manuscripts of Rosmini, now published as First Policy. The aim of the work reported Pullara is the disclosure of the youth political thought of the great Catholic philosopher and, in particular, the fragments related to Rosmini's conception of the prince. Throughout the report, Pullara after referring to the principles on which the origin of the state, focuses on the figure of the prince in his relations with his subjects, operating a continuous comparison with the prince described by Machiavelli. For this reason and for the period in which the publication is likely to Pullara, given its known visceral aversion to fascism, wanted to contrast the figure of a Christian prince to that of the leader.
