The essay outlines the features of "thirdness", which its interpreters always place in the middle between opposite and factious positions, considering it akin to the moderate thought. In this essay I stress the differences between thirdness and moderate thought, which envisages the possibility to line up, considering the equidistance impossible in certain historical phases (just think about Croce and Montanelli). The interpreter of thirdness (illustrated by Prezzolini and his "apoti" - those who don’t swallow anything), instead, identifies his political identity with the need to be always third. This behavior removes a priori the tragic or simply risky dimension of history, and so the history itself, by forcing itself to a gnoseologic and ethical myopia, which is necessary to justify the perpetual neutrality.
Keywords: Thirdness, moderate thought, end of history, Montanelli, Prezzolini, "Corriere della Sera"
