"La percezione e i problemi della vulnerabilità"
In this paper I discuss some ideas expressed in Zanetti’s Filosofia della vulnerabilità, and make a remark on the approach of this book to vulnerabilities. The ideas I take into account are the following: it would be better, from a moral point of view, not to construe a definitions and a typology of vulnerable groups and, in any case, such a definition or typology should be based on the self-comprehension of these groups; discriminations of the elderly, as every other discrimination, are economically costly; becoming a migrant is not a process involving a deliberate choice. Concerning the approach of the book to vulnerabilities, I notice that it can cause a misunderstanding about the possibility of justifying a position against any rule aimed at protecting vulnerable people.
