Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Conference on "Philosophy and Mysticism", of which this volume presents the proceedings, offered a group of teachers from the Department of Philosophy of the USCS the opportunity to implement a project that they had been considering for some time, to resume at to investigate, in a common and organic work, to be extended to those interested in the Department or outside it, the relationships between philosophical knowledge and the field of faith and religious experience. This is the genesis of the "Philosophy and religious experience" Project, which aims to (1) resume with renewed vigor the metaphysical and anthropological tradition that animated the studies and teachings of the Catholic University, (2) reflect philosophically, on value theoretical and historical weight that religious experience has in absolute terms and in relation to our time, (3) weaving around this theme a network of relationships and collaboration with professors from other research institutes, including foreign ones (universities, pontifical universities, Theological faculties). The promoters of the Project follow a theoretical line that proposes and defends some great theses, in which the identity and life of the individual and the community are at stake. At the same time, however, they also practice openness without prejudice that desires and seeks close confrontation with other traditions of thought, in the conviction that the dialectic, the more it is intelligent and passionate, the more it leads to seeing the truth.
