    Passioni folli e illusioni scientifiche in The Expression of the Emotions di Charles Darwin.Monica Riccio - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16 (11).
    [Deranged passions and scientific illusions in Charles Darwin’s “The Expression of the Emotions”]. Charles Darwin used, in his “science” of the expression of the emotions, various means and sources, chasing above all, in the research on the human expressions, spontaneity and lack of conditioning. Therefore, he opted for publishing photographs of the human expressions instead of drawings: in them the emotional conditioning of observer could more probably be transferred. Among the means which could help in seizing the spontaneity of expression, (...)

    Rete, democrazia e complessità.Silvia Caianiello - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [Network, Democracy and Complexity]. The paper analyzes the different causal factors – technological, economic, political and sociological – that led to the actual centralization of the network architecture, and discusses the current debate on the future of the network as polarized between a “technological solutionism” approach, which aims at a technology-driven decentralization of the network, and a more “constitutionally-minded” one, which deems decentralization as such as insufficient and promotes a new regulatory and anti-monopolistic framework for endorsing pluralism and democratic reshaping (...)

    Storia di un botanico napoletano. Gaetano Nicodemi tra scienza e rivoluzione.Maria Laura Castellano & Massimo Ricciardi - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [The story of a Napolitan botanist. Gaetano Nicodemi between science and revolution]. Gaetano Nicodemi, student of the Neapolitan scientist Domenico Cirillo, spent most of his life collecting natural history specimens and taking care of his master’s famous collections. After taking part, with Cirillo, at the Neapolitan Republic of 1799, Nicodemi was exiled in France and became director of the Jardin des Plantes in Lyon, founded by the physician-botanist Emmanuel Gilibert, greatly contributing to its growth. He died in 1804 in unclear (...)

    Digital persona, big data e sfera pubblica. Quali sfide per la democrazia che verrà.Rosanna De Rosa - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [Digital persona, Big Data and public sphere. What challenges for the democracy to come]. The datification of the society has opened up unthinkable possibilities to improve the quality of our life, but it also poses new challenges. How to ensure that data is not used to enforce invasive control of our lives? How to avoid that the algorithms decide for us even when we don’t want it? How to defend our freedom from cyber-elites as much powerful as they are obscure? (...)

    La rappresentanza politica e degli interessi fra dis-intermediazione e re-intermediazione: un primo bilancio.Luciano M. Fasano - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [Political representation and interests representation between dis-intermediation and re-intermediation: an initial assessment]. The impact of the digital revolution on democratic systems and on interests representation has been so significant to produce long-term consequences on our understanding and functioning of democratic institutions. On the one hand, in the political system, personalization, leaderization and the revival of so-called “direct democracy” are suggesting new ways to renew the fundamental promise of the democracy. On the other hand, in the interests representation system, the crisis (...)

    «Fifty thousand years is not very long»: The Tribal and the Information Age in the Beat Movement.Richard Kidder - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    This paper claims, in the first part, that the arguments put forth by the Beat Movement, personified by writers such as Gary Snyder, William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, have much in common with the positions of Internet pioneers, such as Vannevar Bush, especially in the text of 1945, As We May Think, and with Ted Nelson, with his never quite completed project, “Xanadu”. The second part of the paper explores oral and tribal experiences of contemporary critics such as Walter J. (...)

    Note su Internet e democrazia.Roberto Mazzola - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [Notes on Internet and Democracy]. During the Nineties the prophets of the end of history were quickly denied; only in the last decade, the illusions of those who considered the Internet a powerful tool for renewing and expanding democracy in the economic and political sphere have been shattered. In fact, the massive use of Big Data and AI has transformed the new ICT into a powerful tool for conditioning and controlling citizens’ choices and purchases. This article traces some moments and (...)

    La parte di Tersite. Verità e democrazia dopo la democrazia.Valeria Pinto - 2019 - Laboratorio dell’ISPF 16.
    [The Part of Thersitis. Truth and Democracy after Democracy]. This article presents the crisis of governability due to an “excess of democracy” diagnosed by the 1975 report The Crisis of Democracy as a crisis of control and shows how its corrective in the neoliberal transformation of the State coincides with a “revolution of control”. The passage from the traditional bureaucratic control of legitimacy to the automation of control generates what Foucault called the “society of the norm”, marked by the invisibility (...)
