LA SFIDA DELL’ALTRO
SULLA NATURA FILOSOFICA DELL’AZIONE TERAPEUTICA
This article analyses the therapeutic action from the perspective of an anthropological philosophy capable to set a right distance for a point of view of empathy and epistemology, based on the author’s daily work practice. The therapeutic setting is therefore analysed in its possible being context structured as intimately private space at the same time as public space, through the lived of sense of belonging or social interest/feeling – Gemeinschaftsgefühl – that the role of therapist symbolically embodies. A framework characterized by constitutive and dynamic oxymorons that the author makes to speak starting with the Epistemology of Dilthey, the Logical Hermeneutic of Misch, up to the Hermeneutic Ethic of Levinas. Central assumption is to formulate the hypothesis of an implicit curative epistemology in the therapeutic action that supports the philosophical nature as utopian, to accept and to welcome the other in its essential challenge.
