"Researches of Gnoseology and Metaphysics" Centre

Immagine Centro
The "Research of Gnoseology and Metaphysics" Centre is an interdisciplinary centre for advanced researches and has research and training as its main purposes: it brings together both professors and researchers who deal with theoretical and historical studies concerning knowledge, ontology, and the issues implied in, with particular attention to the Modern and Contemporary philosophical debate.

The main reference point is the critical method of "pure elemental gnoseology" or "philosophy of immediate, elementary, whole experience" of Giuseppe Zamboni (1875-1950), but the Research Centre focuses also on the contemporary thought and, in particular, on the phenomenological and psychological disciplines.

Priorities of the "Research of Gnoseology and Metaphysics" Centre includes:

1) confirmation of the critical-experimental method as essential for the examination of the whole reality (including social ontology and relative entities);
2) reaffirmation of the central role played by human person, as experimental core of an ontology conceived in a strong sense;
3) encouragement of the investigations concerning the issue of knowledge and metaphysics, paying attention to the international debate about those topics, in a close relationship with European and international similar Research Centres.

The "Research of Gnoseology and Metaphysics" Centre intends to organize seminars, conferences, workshops on the above-mentioned topics and aims to establish relationships in order to share informations, databases, etc. with other Research Centres, Public Institutions and Private Associations operating both in the national and in the international context. It will utilise a dedicate website, in connection to the critical editions of philosophical texts and the publication of papers/essays/articles axed on the topics of the Centre and linked to its areas of interests.
