Body to Body with the Pain. A Short Reflexion on Pain and Global Society (By Riccardo Prandini)
Apparently, our society is marker by a paradox. On one side, through technical systems we are transforming nature in order to prevent risks, dangers and therefore pain – Artificialization of Nature. Pain, according to our philosophical tradition is something that is unfair and must be avoided. On the other side, many scientifical efforts tries to transform “metanatural” phenomena in natural ones – for instance the “biologization” of cognitions, emotions and of the “social”. On these basis, Prandini develop a set of reflections that concern the opportunity of avoiding the pain if this imply to erase the “human” that is the premise of the pain.
