Giuliano Gozzelino, Why power, rather than nothing? The modern democracy as anthropology method


This essay analyses the modern connection between democracy and school: what is the anthropological twist that makes man a State citizen? Within modern rights and duties, such anthropology is here critically examined from the point of view of two important historical moments. The first one was made between the seventeenth and eighteenth century, starting from theodicy and arriving to the idea of sovereign law. The second one, peculiar to the partisans of Ossola, is given by school as “constitutional act” within the weights and counterbalances of democracy.
