This volume collects the contributions offered in Palermo during the conference "Leonardo Sciascia (1921-1989). Literature, criticism, civil militancy", held on 18 and 19 November 2019 at the University of Studies and carried out by the Department of Humanities in collaboration with the Sicilian Center for Philological and Linguistic Studies. The analysis that emerges in the collection of essays introduced here is not attested as a nostalgic celebration of a closed chapter, but as a stimulus to the inauguration of a phase of definitive focus on the work and thought of an author whose dimension it goes beyond the purely scientific sphere. the contributions were placed within five macro thematic areas: Thought and method, Works, Comparisons, Language, Tradition. The desired transdisciplinary partition, which is also the methodological structure of the proposed analysis offered with this volume, tries to respond to the attempt of the curators to return the Sciascian feeling in terms of overcoming the thresholds of knowledge of reality: the writer's work is undisputed evidence of a desire to make distant space-time dimensions communicable yet always united by the same subject, that is man, who becomes the protagonist of the distortions of reality and the games of power, against himself.
