“Identità culturale e violenza”

Date: Thursday, March 12, 2020|18:00 -19:30

Franco Fabbro

Session Description: Oggi parlare di identità culturale significa addentrarsi in una zona di pericolo, perché in suo nome si sono perpetrati crimini che sfidano l’idea stessa di umanità, e nel suo cono d’ombra ancora si annidano le pulsioni più aggressive. Ma l’ambivalenza dei processi identitari, in cui spesso vanno a incagliarsi i tentativi di riflessione sul tema, per Franco Fabbro non ostacola la comprensione, anzi ne è il presupposto. E, se indagata con strumenti conoscitivi adeguati, che integrano le osservazioni paleoantropologiche e le analisi storico-religiose, può suggerire strategie di disinnesco dei potenziali dannosi.

Session Summary:

La propostaneuropedagogica di Fabbro è di esporre precocemente i bambini a quella pluralità di religioni e di lingueche, secondo ricerche ormai consolidate, favorirebbe una più efficace regolazione del comportamento e una maggiore autoconsapevolezza. Proprio là dove adesso c’è pericolo crescerebbe «ciò che salva».
