The paper proposes a critical reflection on Remo Cantoni’s philosophical thought, with particularregards to his anthropological point of view that addresses concepts such as “critical humanism” and“horizontal connection”. The strict relationship between anthropology and participation are his maintopics on which he has made outstanding remarks in the second decade of XXth century in the Italiancultural panorama.Since his early works, Cantoni points out the need to develop a different way of analysing thepluridimensionality of human beings and widely debates contemporary European cultural context afterthe end of World War II. The paper tries to put in evidence how Cantoni’s anthropological thoughtoriginally tends to a knowledgical intentionality dimension which should be taken into account forethnographic investigation. In order to apply his point view, he suggests to consider an epistemologicalapproach which could connect all the social-scientific sciences through a “horizontal connection”,whose aim is to gain a vital relationship of culture with the existing variety and alterity.
