[Autom. eng. transl.] The volume The words of public life: crises and transformations of a common horizon, curated by Paolo Monti and Stefano Stortone, intertwines their research contribution in an original way with that of three important international authors - Giampaolo Azzoni, Dario Castiglione, Paul J Weithman - each of whom addresses, from his own point of view, the theme of the crisis of politics and democracy, with particular attention to the erosion of the concepts and thought patterns typical of modernity: the liberal public reason, the positive law, social spheres and actors, representation and democratic institutions, the meaning and role of politics in relation to religion, science and the economy. These are elements with respect to which the consolidated structures are now in strong crisis or are going through complex processes of identity transformation which in any case highlight a need for a reformulation of the ways of imagining and describing them. This drive towards a renewal of the paradigmatic ways of representing and conceiving social reality and its forms is common in all the authors and in each of them it is possible to trace elements of originality of analysis that open up perspectives for further research and reflection.
