Dal tramonto della «politica» all’emergere della «grande politica»
di Gianpiero Magnani
Abstract: the concepts of technique and politics, at the center of Severino’s analysis, in reality they each have a double meaning: there is the technique and the Technique, and above all there is politics and Politics. The latter, in particular, is Great Politics, and we will focus our attention on it, to outline a theory of politics as extraordinary administration, opposed to the common idea of good politics as the ordinary administration of public affairs. Great Politics is the ability to change the rules of the collective behavior of a human community, that is the ability to change game’s rules, formal and informal, norms and values. And Technique becomes Politics when scientists become subjects of political action.
Keywords: Great Politics – game’s rules – political action – extraordinary administration – state of exception
