Indugiare sulla soglia dell’ontologia: per un’etica della lettura

Published December 31, 2020


The contribution presents a reflection on the application of a semantic ontology in the didactic field aiming at promoting a critical awareness of the process of interpreting a cultural product that involves at least writing. First of all, the essay will take into consideration methodological approaches focusing the concept of ontology from the semantic (A. Greimas, R. Romano), philosophical (U. Eco) and anthropological (G. Bateson schismogenesis) points of view: then it will analyse two experiences in two college courses, in which has been successfully applied semantically oriented ontological analysis. Finally the essay will close with a reflection on the meaning that the proposal would have as regards some traits of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophical research.
