La doppia natura della verità

This comment focuses on the notion of alethic rights, showing the difficulty to formalize their normative and juridical role. As emphasized such a difficulty depends on what Franca D’Agostini rightly defines as “the double nature” of truth, both an unwaivable and unenforceable claim.

La verità come interesse collettivo

Assuming the truthfulness in political and institutional relations as a collective interest, this comment focuses on some implications, from the perspective of legal theory, of the statement of a general right to the truth. The author considers the conditions of its assumption as a fundamental right and discusses several aspects of the alethic rights proposed by Franca D’Agostini.

L'anima aletica della democrazia liberale

In agreement with D’Agostini’s argument, this note subscribes to the idea that political sphere must protect truth. Especially in democracy, truth must act as the constitutive rule of public discourse and the political process. The discussion on alethic rights helps to grasp and emphasize the importance of both points. However, the note raises some perplexity about the feasibility and effectiveness of this new class of rights and suggests to widen the reflection on other possible solutions. More specifically, these strategies could also be considered: 1) to strengthen the alethic dimension of certain existing citizenship rights; 2) to strengthen or create exogenous alethic institutions, intended as structures for the production of politically relevant knowledge inspired by "V function" as a conceptual norm (rejection of false assertions and false beliefs) and epistemological norm (search for truth as an institutional purpose); 3) create incentives that systematically link the alethic institutions to the political ones, encouraging the latter to being receptive and responsive to the former.

La difficile convivenza di verità e inganno

The author acknowledges the importance of truth for individual and social life; however she doubts that a) the concept of truth that D’Agostini proposes is the right one to support the aletic rights; b) that the aletic rights are the right tool for the defense of truth. She thinks that in some cases truth is best defended by the duty of truthful information, while in other cases, the aletic right is redundant. Finally, she argues that the social and political value
of truth is better understood as a regulative ideal than as a collective right.
