Synesthesia in music establishes a correspondence between sound and color and has been a constant debate since the 17th century. The complex nature of sound appears from ancient Greece in the school of Pythagoras in which the number becomes the configurator of harmony. Since then, different aesthetic attempts have arisen to relate color and sound that reach today's electronic procedures in contemporary music.</p> 2022-05-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

Her concept of the political eludes the tradition-inherited approach and subtracts the praxis from instrumental reason. Arendt revisits the political experiences of ancient Greek cities, where tragedy and assembly, theater and agora, provide the propitious space for action. She avoids the instrumental approach of <em>homo faber</em>, conceptualizes action as performance and shows its connaturality with the performing arts, to the detriment of the productive ones. In “What is Freedom?” Arendt understands political freedom as a “worldly fact”, and assesses the Machiavellian <em>virtù</em> as public excellence: as <em>performance on stage</em>.</p> 2022-05-17T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

To do this, it shows the original approach to this issue present in the thought of the current Spanish philosopher J. M. Méndez. According to the characteristic thinking of this author, freedom does not represent a value but the gateway or the very possibility of participation in any ethical value, as postulated by his <em>axiological liberalism</em>.</p> <p> </p> 2022-05-18T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.

I show why artworks, thanks to the ontological and material elements that constitute them, are the privileged point to comprehend the factors at play in society. In order to achieve this, I investigate particularly the concept of form. With this, I underline how the character of “open form” of modern art claimed by Adorno, though being a manifestation of a contingent historical moment, is able to deeply reflect the character of “openness” of reason, which thus conjugates with the proper function of philosophy.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 HUMAN REVIEW.
