Abstract

Michel Foucault characterizes philosophy as an attitude which consists in asking following questions: Who are we? What is this present we are in and which we are? Philosophy, he says, is ontology of the present. This definition might generate two further questions: Who are this “we”? What are the relations between this present and the current actuality which is communicated to us?
