Abstract

At first glance, Western humanism, Japanese Buddhism and modern science have so little in common that the very idea of seeking common ground through dialogue seems overly idealistic. Only a man the calibre of Daisaku Ikeda could bring such a project to fruition. Firmly setting aside cliché and facile answers, he broaches the grand questions that face today's society: cancer, AIDS, death with dignity, in vitro fertilization, biomedical ethics… The responses offered by René Simard, molecular biologist and geneticist, and Guy Bourgeault, bioethicist, are insightful and compelling. Their discussions cut through linguistic and cultural barriers to present a vision of the potential – an the inherent challenges – of being human.

Abstract

Nella prospettiva che Metzinger difende nelle lezioni raccolte in questo volume, l’io, come scrive nell’introduzione Alfredo Paternoster, «viene a configurarsi come nulla di più di un’utile recita, una sorta di allucinazione, costruita però con materiali genuini». Sullo sfondo dell’eredità di Hume, ripresa oggi da Dennett, Metzinger delinea un ampio programma di ricerca, anche empirica, inteso a mostrare come si pervenga a una rappresentazione del sé; tale rappresentazione tuttavia non attesta l’esistenza di qualcosa come una coscienza.
