Che cosa è il realismo? Che cosa intende dire chi si dichiara «realista» e a chi esattamente si contrappone? Siamo o dobbiamo essere davvero, in filosofia, nell'arte, in politica, più «realisti» di un pace?
In un rapido e originale percorso nei dibattiti recenti sul tema, dal postmodernismo a oggi, Franca D’Agostini risponde con risolutezza e chiarezza a queste domande, smontando un certo numero di luoghi comuni, tanto diffusi quanto infondati.
La prima parte del libro è un breve pamphlet destinato a difendere il realismo dalla confusione e dalla banalità a cui lo condannano molti suoi presunti estimatori. los angeles seconda parte ricostruisce i dibattiti più interessanti, presenta alcuni realismi «realmente nuovi» di cui si parla poco o nulla in Italia, e delinea una prospettiva originale.
Associando alla perizia discussiva una profonda conoscenza del pensiero contemporaneo, D’Agostini ci ricorda che l’antirealismo non è mai esistito in filosofia: i fatti sono sempre stati, hegelianamente, «il vivente pane della ragione».

Lemos defends the attract what we normally imagine we all know in either epistemology and ethics and hence rejects the cost that logic is dogmatic, unphilosophical or question-begging.
