Gino Secondo Zaccaria
My field of research is theoretical philosophy, according to the phenomenological approach. Currently, I am Professor of Philosophy and Aesthetics. I was Professor of Introduction to Philosophy (2001-2007); Philosophical Hermeneutics (1995-2004); Methodology of Human Sciences (1994-95); Logic and Philosophy of Science (1983-1995). I am scientific director of the international journal “eudia — Yearbook for Philosophy, Poetry and Art” (www.eudia.org), and of the international research project "ScienzaNuova" (www.scienzanuova.org)
I am also member of Società Italiana di Filosofia Teoretica , of Societé Française de Philosophie, of Akademie Deutsch-Italienischer Studien, Meran, and of Martin-Heidegger-Gesellschaft.
My research interests lie in the areas of Epistemology, Metaphysics and Ontology; Greek philosophy; Logic; Philosophy of Time, Philosophy of Art; Italian and English Philosophical Lexicon.
In particular, I am interested in the dialogue between phenomenological philosophy and theoretical physics on the question of time and space. In this context, the problem of the difference between space-time understood in a strictly physical sense and space and time understood in artistic creation is relevant. This also raises the question of the meaning of truth: how can the relationship between 'physical truth' and 'artistic truth' be understood? And what are the consequences for the philosophy of art and artistic ethics?
