Read e-book online Neuroetica. La nuova sfida delle neuroscienze PDF

L. a. neuroetica è l'ultima frontiera delle neuroscienze: un campo d'indagine legato agli attuali progressi delle conoscenze neuropsicobiologiche e al complesso delle loro implicazioni etiche, legali e sociali. Il termine racchiude in sé due significati: da un lato, 'etica delle neuroscienze', cioè l. a. riflessione filosofica che riguarda il trattamento, il potenziamento e l. a. manipolazione del cervello umano; dall'altro, 'neuroscienze dell'etica', vale a dire l. a. possibilità di analizzare come il cervello prende decisioni, qual è l. a. neurobiologia, ossia i fenomeni biologici del sistema nervoso che attengono alla 'credenza' e in cosa consiste il substrato neuronale della rappresentazione dei valori e della fede stessa.

Example text

Lodovico Domenichi, Rime diverse d’alcune nobilissime et virtuosissime donne (Lucca: Busdraghi, 1559). 4. Not on June 14, 1514. See Giovanna Rabitti, “Linee per il ritratto di Chiara Matraini,” Studi e problemi di critica testuale 22 (1981): 155. 3 4 Vo l u m e I n t r o d u c t i o n lic life. Based on archival material, some events in which they participated can be reconstructed, but nothing has been found that sheds light on the family environment or on the personalities of the individual members.

L. celebre col nome di Gherardo Diceo (Life of Prof. Gherardo Sergiusti famous under the name of Gherardo Diceo),9 is preserved in the library of Lucca. Although it is quite biased, it contains some verifiable facts. 10 Because of Sergiusti’s fame, the affair of the two lovers, who openly lived together, was severely condemned in 1547, but not everyone shared such an opinion, as Pietro Pera states in his Miscellanea lucchese: 7. These ties were reciprocal, for both her brother and her mother (in 1551) named her as their main heir.

29 The text is followed by “Annotations” written by Giuseppe Mozzagrugno, the rectory priest of the Church of the Salvatore, in Lucca. This work was Matraini’s most popular, and rightly so, given its fine combination of a sincere profession of faith and of a familiarity with the Scriptures, accompanied by a few conscious borrowings from the apocryphal texts, sources for Mary’s childhood. It was republished in the seventeenth century. The possibility of returning to secular literature, forty years after the first publication of her poems, came with the reappearance of her canzoniere in 1595, but she could not hide the signs of her long activity dedicated to other literary genres, mainly religious and meditative.
