The crisis of the objects. Starting from a piece by Platone dedicated to the manufacture of things and the imitation of things, where in La Repubblica Socrate speaks to Glaucone, the author traces his own conceptual path concerning the construction of the object and its re-production. He touches the relationship between object and subject, the crisis of the object and the loss of identity of the subject in the twentieth century and then underline the rebirth of objects in a rationalistic key. He considers the cyclical crises of the object and its duration.
