Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The dramatic repetition of the war-peace relationship directly affects the very nature of western identity and forces us to rethink some traditional philosophical-juridical categories. More precisely, it involves three closely intertwined profiles: the binomial order-disorder as a dimension that was originally constitutive of the western conscience (the Greek polis); the theme of the "conflict", whose phenomenal cogency intertwines with the complexity of its philosophical-juridical reading; the horizon of modern rationality, whose ultimate goal was the removal of conflict. This postulates, in the final analysis, a new reflection on the connection between the binomial "order-disorder" and the concept of "rationality" capable of keeping open the theoretical and anthropological possibility of the conflict as a tension between the "is" of the given historical and the horizon of "being able-to-be".
