Liberalism, nationalism, and post-Brexit Europe

This paper links the recent Brexit vote to Faragism, a political ideology that equates national sovereignty with effective political control – control over immigration, in particular. The paper exposes the incoherence of the Faragist claim that a sovereign Britain would have more control over its affairs than Britain now has as a member of the EU. The paper further argues that the form of Brexit that Faragists advocate – so-called “Hard Brexit” – is not only undesirable but unjust. The paper concludes with a defense of European Citizenship, which should be extended to all British
nationals as a means of reconnecting them to the European project of integration.

L'ordoliberalismo e la ricerca della sacralità

Ordoliberalism has been identified as an important ideational force during the European sovereign debt crisis. A vivid scholarly and public debate has erupted on how much influence the ideology had on the German position during the

Ordoliberalism adopted the myth of

Democrazia o tecnocrazia? Considerazioni cognitive e sperimentali sulla praticabilità dei regimi politici

Current experimental cognitive science is presenting new topics related to the feasibility of the different forms of government. In this paper we aim at analyzing the practical viability of democratic and technocratic paradigms. Whereas
technocracy is undemocratic and turns out to be ineffective in keeping its promise (which is the achievement of fully rational policies), typical democratic proceedings – albeit in an imperfect way – encourage the dialogue between
different judgments and ideas, able to improve the decision-making process in the public sphere.
