The Truth of Being between Unconditional and Conditional


  • Francesco Totaro Pensamultimedia



The essay starts from the distinction between the being that is unconditional and the being that happens in a conditional way, that is within the limits of our experience and our existence. The synthesis of unconditional and what is conditional implies overcoming the features of being that are deficient and distressing and do not deserve to remain. This is the issue of the ontology that has to be completed by an axiology. According to the Author, the negative can be present in the “Glory” only as taken away within a dimension of transcendence. And so philosophy, at the peak of the supreme care for the sense of being, opens itself to a promise of salvation. Furthermore, because we do not have now the full manifestation of truth, the latter, unlike what Severino thought, needs a faith as keeping its perspective.
