“Philosophy as a science of life” to understand changes in history and politics

Sunday 10 December At 4:30 pm at the “Enrico Pucci” Theater in Tuscany, there will be a meeting promoted by the “Enrico Pucci” Cultural Club with the philosopher Luciano Dottarelli, who will talk about “philosophy as a science of life” to understand changes in history and politics, conveying to each other what he has researched. He wrote about the character of Musoni, a Roman philosopher born in Volsini and who lived in first-century Rome during the reign of Nero’s empire.

Regarding the character of Musonio, who is known for his uprightness and austerity of thought, the author Luciano Dottarelli wrote the book “Musonio l’Etrusco”, which was published by Annulli Editori. Gaius Musonius Rufus, known as the Etruscan because he was born and raised in Volcini, enjoyed great fame and moral standing among his contemporaries and throughout Late Antiquity. For the uprightness of his life’s conduct and the courage with which he faced Nero’s persecution and exile, he was identified as the “Roman Socrates” and considered a “model of the ideal life.”

Today, two thousand years later, some features of his thought (such as the conception of women, or considerations of vegetarian nutrition) still seem very vital and not at all outdated. Luciano Dottarelli demonstrates this by retracing the philosopher’s life through a detailed historical, documentary and bibliographical investigation, which highlights one of the most original and interesting thinkers of antiquity.

In an age of crises, that is, a moment of historical transition that calls into question all the models and categories that have supported us in living and planning, it may be particularly interesting to reflect on some passages from the history of philosophy.

Luciano Dottarelli, Professor of Philosophical Disciplines, has always combined teaching and research activities with a strong civic commitment and a real passion for the land. He promoted the establishment of the “UNESCO Viterbo Toccia Club”, of which he is president. His philosophical interests are epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, and philosophical practice.

The Enrico Bucci Cultural Club has been promoting discussions and conferences on current affairs and artistic topics for over thirty years, organizing visits to museums and places of historical interest, supporting theater courses for young people and cooperating in welcoming Tuscany’s resident communities.
