    Is Aesthetic Mind a Plastic Mind? Reflections on Goethe and Catherine Malabou.Valeria Maggiore - 2019 - Aisthesis. Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 12 (1):55-60.
    What is the relationship between thinking and seeing a form? In his morphological writings Goethe answers this question by saying that seeing is not pure passivity, but a thoughtful look because it invokes the mobility and plasticity of our thinking. For this reason this kind of aesthetic gaze is useful to understand the world of life, equally mobile and plastic. In this article, I will try to find out whether Goethe’s considerations about aesthetic idea and plasticity can find a new-look (...)

    L’estetica del camuffamento animale. Riflessioni sul mimetismo biologico.Valeria Maggiore - 2016 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 9 (2):17-30.

    Lo Stato cellulare e i suoi cittadini: metafore bio-politiche sulla questione dell’individualità cellulare.Valeria Maggiore - 2014 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 7 (2):161-176.
    The concept of cell, more than any other biological concept, has been modelled on three powerful metaphors: in a morphological perspective, the cell has been defined Baustein, the brick or elementary unit of the body; from the physiological point of view, it has been associated to a chemical laboratory and finally, in a systemic view, it has been compared to the citizen of the cellular state. The pathologist Rudolf Virchow and the zoologist Ernst Haeckel showed the philosophical and aesthetic potential (...)
