L’idea: “Una selezione di argomenti scelti tra i più attuali invita lo studente e futuro elettore ad affrontare i temi della democrazia e della cittadinanza attraverso una lettura critica del nuovo scenario mediale in cui vive. I riferimenti puntuali al manuale GALASSIA FILOSOFIA curato da Sergio Givone e Francesco Firrao raccordano le problematiche affrontate alla storia del pensiero filosofico”

Abstract. The contemporary evolution of digital Information and Communication Technologies (ITCs) has generated a new field of constraints and opportunities for our freedom of expression, while causing the emergence of a new dimension of human interactions, the infosphere, which can be conceived as the global environment of information we live in.
This article suggests considering how and why the quantitative increase of the free flow of information in the infosphere does not necessarily coincide with the increase of political freedom, nor with the reduction of anti-democratic power asymmetries. Taking into account both recent case studies and classic philosophical questions about the freedom of the press, the author invites the reader to rethink and retheorize the evolving relationship of politics, power, democracy, educational innovation, and freedom in our increasingly technologized and re-ontologized world.

ABSTRACT

Distinct philosophical traditions have associated democracy and market order with magnificent promises of satisfaction for human existential needs and relationships: nevertheless, neither representative democracy, nor the market have been up to the promises, and there seems to be no way to close the gap between their idealized images and the historically given reality. Questions of relationship (complementarity, mutual exclusion?) between capitalism and democracy have been of central concern to political thinkers for a long time: taking into account some aspects of this debate, this paper focuses on the actual overlap among political and financial institutions. The analysis of the contemporary debate on the consequent change both in political decision-making, and in practices of social regulation, is combined with a re-reading of two crucial points in the evolution of liberal tradition: Mandeville’s planning of inequality and Hayek’s celebration of the miracle of the market (catallaxy). In order to give a perspicuous representation of the possibile distortions of democratic decision-making by the financial and economic power of non-elected bodies, the paper suggests the introduction of a third capital formula, beyond the general formula for the industrial capitalism (D-M-D’) and the more formula of financial capitalism (D-D’).
