Afferenze. Plessner, Weizsäcker e il canone minore
Rocco Ronchi’s book Il canone minore talks about some lines, operative in Western thought, that are in contrast with the mainly followed theoretical canon, especially by mention to Bergson, Whitehead, Gentile, Deleuze. This essay aims to support this proposal showing how other authors, also in the German area, can be affiliated to the “minor canon”; in particular, I refer to the philosopher Helmuth Plessner, with his “positional theory” and the idea of living subject; and to the scientist Viktor von Weizsäcker, for his idea of Gestaltkreis and the concept of “biological act”.
