Un “mistero incomprensibile”: il problema mente-corpo nella filosofia dello spirito di Hegel
The essay aims to analyze the relationship between mind and body in the Hegel’s philosophy of subjective spirit. Through a rapid reconstruction of the influences of emerging empirical sciences, such as biology with his vitalist positions, physiognomy and phrenology, the essay aims to highlight not only the role that in the structure of Hegel’s view assumes the teleological vision derived from Aristotle, mediated by third Kantian critique, but also the epistemological significance of the Hegelian methodological attitude. Hegel rejects the attempts to bring back the relationship mind-body to a dualistic view, and proposes a dialectic solution that goes beyond the rigidity of an attitude which is crushed both from a naturalist perspective as well as from an anti-naturalist one. This methodological approach may still offer an interesting contribution to the contemporary debate.
