    Incidenza di Hume nell’empirismo trascendentale di Deleuze
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2013-12)
    Treppiedi, Fabio
    Following the relationship between subjectivity and knowledge from Empirisme et subjectivité (1953) to Differénce et repetition (1968), this article gives an account of Hume’s influence on the «transcendental empiricism» which is, according to the most part of recent deleuzian studies, the fundamental theoretical spectrum of Deleuze’s thought. The author shows, in this way, how Deleuze methodically reads Hume to create an «heretical» version of Kant’s transcendental philosophy.

    Per un coraggio di verità della diagnosi psichiatrica
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2013-12)
    D'Autilia, Silvia
    The text would relate Friedrich Nietzsche’s life and work to the italian psychiatric process of reform, carried out in person by Franco Basaglia. From the analysis of Nietzsche’s psychophysical disease and the different medical and psychiatric diagnoses on his person, or even to his thought, this article want to deny the causal link between his disease and its philosophy, saving his thought from the label of delirium: otherwise, it’s important to demonstrate that his philosophy was also his madness and vice versa. As a matter of fact, Foucault explain us that every will of truth on the subjects, such as the same psychiatric diagnosis, is an expression of the power that organizes and administers the bodies: the normalization is the anesthesia of the specific and individual needs. The will of truth of the psychiatric power is immediately connected to the orthopedic domestication of diversity. Thank to Basaglia, instead, psychiatry reached a point of no-return: he put in brackets the disease to focus on the person; made as prior the person and his existence on the institution; fought asylum as an element of chronicity and he is completely disinterested to the pursuit of diagnosis, as factor of exclusion of the subject from the social body. On the basis of these reflections, he dedicated his entire life to the total destruction of the asylum.

    Speech Acts and Normativity: A Plea For Inferentialism
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2013-12)
    Berdini, Federica
    This paper deals with the normative dimension of the states of affairs produced by the performance of speech acts (i.e., states of affairs such as commitments, obligations, rights, licenses), and has a twofold aim. First, it points out the inadequacy of Searle’s conventionalist account of both the performance of speech acts and the normativity associated with it, and advocates as an alternative an inferentialist approach along with Bach and Harnish. Second, it suggests that we can account for the normative dimension engendered by speech acts within the inferentialist framework by making the presumption about the interlocutor’s rationality (a notion derived from Grice’s work) fully explicit, and by attending to the set of expectations and constraints that result from it.
