Simone Redaelli

Drifted somewhere in Germany under an eager soul, Simone is a bleeding scientist and writer. In his childhood, he gained few rudimentals about biology and poetry, blending the beauty of observation to the inner eye of literature. For the entire life, he has been suffering from a rare and unpleasant disease, which rocks down his bones and constantly ignites his flesh: the desire of truth.

Why all news carries a dose of fakeness

Anytime we read a newspaper or watch the news on television, we often do not realize that every news story is structurally a mystification. In this article we will try to unravel the fictitious component that any published report inevitably contains.

The emergence of infant identity

What is the first sign of human consciousness during childhood? Philosopher Günther Anders pictures the emergence of infant consciousness as a primordial struggle between a child’s identity and the surrounding reality, resulting in manifestations of shame. Anders’ enlightening explanation of this feeling contributes to understanding the inescapable tendency of humans to conform with others.

A long-term viable way to store poetry

What would happen to our culture, if humanity met a global extinction? Experimental Canadian poet Christian Bök opens new horizons for making DNA a durable storage system for our knowledge.

The cultural fluidity: is history static or dynamic?

We usually consider the past as an untouchable dimension, where fixed facts are continuously added to build a growing collection of chronological events. The intellectual and poet J. L. Borges challenges this scenario asking his character Pierre Menard to re-write a verbally coincident novel to Cervantes´ Chisciotte. This trivial task – however – turns out to be impossible: can we reproduce the meaning of an original opus considering that the act of its rewriting is inevitably invested by a different historical truth?

The cultural role of individuals in the new millennium

At the beginning of our history, culture arose as an instrument to face the wildness of nature: every single human used to be a fair representative of our primordial knowledge. Nowadays, because humanity is safe, this original meaning becomes useless. While our civilization is growing so fast, how can we – as individuals – still actively embrace it?
