Filosofia del Viaggio

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Travel Philosophy

Franco Riva

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Is there anything easier today than travelling? Everything is in the network, moving: life itself is moving on. Travelling is no longer the privilege of few persons and its words seem to stand out as global slogans. Everywhere, even in the political programs, people talk about welcome and hospitality. Yet, within the outward easiness of travel, a lot is damaged: travel often looks like a simple moving or a consumption displacement. Travel seems also to speak willingly the only unsafe language of exchange and money. Therefore it’s no wonder that other words (and this arouses suspicion) are less pronounced: the other and the self-detachment, the uniqueness and the fragility of lives, the responsibility. The freedom still. The book makes three fundamental movements on the side of community and language (Travel, community and tale), of globalisation (Welcome, money and unsafeness) and of the otherness (Travel and uniqueness). The new edition add four chapters unpublished: Eight rules for travelling; Ulysses and Abraham; The new other. Geography of the human; Travelling and logos.
