Accepted languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, German
Deadline for submission: December 10th, 2012
The eleventh number of Lo Sguardo will focus on the relationship between autobiography, self-narrative and hermeneutics of the subject. The number will have two major conceptual pillars. On the one hand, a section focused on theoretical contributions. In this section, we aim at emphasizing the dynamic and dialectical relationship that links the subject (narrating himself) to the same tools of the narrative: material and language. More precisely, this section highlights the link between the narrative and the hermeneutic constitution and articulation of the inner self. On the other hand, another section of historical interventions aiming at investigating the philosophical and linguistic categories through which many philosophers represented themselves in the history of thought.
