Italian Hacking ed eredità

In this paper, I discuss the peculiarity of the Italian philosophy of the “impure reason” by highlighting the connection between the ideas of a “classic” Italian philosopher and the works of a contemporary Italian philosopher: Giambattista Vico and Luciano Floridi. With this aim, I present a defence of “constructionism” from an epistemological and conceptual point of view (§ 2), and then I claim that, in an anthropological and philosophical perspective, to inherit means constructing or reconstructing, that is, hacking (§ 3).
