  2. Cosa Mostra la Dialettica? Contraddizione, Negazione E Non-Identità in Hegel E Adorno.Filippo Costantini - 2016 - Discipline filosofiche. 26 (2):167-186.
    The aim of this paper is to understand the meaning of dialectical contradiction. I shall argue that dialectics is mainly a linguistic phenomenon that shows the coimplication of concepts. Through a deep analysis of the notions of “contradiction” and “negation”, which lie behind Hegel’s and Adorno’s work, I shall explain the logical structure of the contradiction which Hegel and Adorno work with ; I shall show why Hegel and Adorno give two radically different interpretations of contradiction ; why Adorno’s idea (...)

    Extending Everything with Nothing.Filippo Costantini - 2020 - Philosophia 48 (4):1413-1436.
    In this paper we offer a new solution to the old paradox of nothingness. This new solution develops in two steps. The first step consists in showing how to resolve the contradiction generated by the notion of nothingness by claiming that the contradiction shows the indefinite extensibility of the concept of object. The second step consists in showing that, having accepted the idea of indefinite extensibility, we can have absolute generality without the emergence of the contradiction connected to the absolute (...)

    Leibniz’s Argument Against Infinite Number.Filippo Costantini - 2019 - History of Philosophy & Logical Analysis 22 (1):203-218.
    This paper deals with Leibniz’s well-known reductio argument against the infinite number. I will show that while the argument is in itself valid, the assumption that Leibniz reduces to absurdity does not play a relevant role. The last paragraph of the paper reformulates the whole Leibnizian argument in plural terms to show that it is possible to derive the contradiction that Leibniz uses in his argument even in the absence of the premise that he refutes.

    The Inexpressibility Objection.Filippo Costantini - 2018 - Kriterion - Journal of Philosophy 32 (2):25-46.
    In this paper, we offer a contribution to the discussion of one of the most important objections against a relativist position in the absolute generality debate. The inexpressibility objection accuses the generality-relativist of not being able to coherently express her own position. First, we examine Glanzberg’s attempt to reply to this objection and we show that it fails. Second, we study the prospects of generalizing the relativist position. In particular, we analyze Fine’s and Linnebo’s modal approaches and we argue that, (...)
