Preparing mentally for the conference at the University of Pavia, where we will discuss tomorrow and Friday
Such topic surely has to acknowlegde the complexity of existence, and its contradiciton – something we as intellectuals easily forget. Seneca’s words may be taken as reminder:
Teniamo sempre questo verso sul cuore e sulle labbra: sono un uomo, e non guidico a me estraneo nulla di ciò che è umano.
Let this verse be in your heart and on your lips: I am a man; and nothing in man’s lot do I deem foreign to me.
Will then have the pleasure to work with Nadia on Saturday on a new publication on the topic. The challenge is to look for ways – gaps and bridges – between capability approach and social quality approach.
