Recentemente pubblicato il volume degli Atti del Convegno internazionale "The exercise of Power 500 Years after the 'The Prince' Was Written" svoltosi presso l'Università Lumina di Bucarest un paio di anni fa (in occasione del cinqucentenario della stesura dell'opera) e al quale ho avuto il piacere di partecipare con la relazione "A Possible Role in the Contemporary Society for the Machiavellian Main Concepts".
Il mio contributo pubblicato ora negli Atti (editi dall'Università di Bucarest) si intitola: "Per una permanenza nella società contemporanea de 'Il Principe' di Machiavelli: né obsolescenza, né attualità; né per condanna, né per assoluzione". Di seguito, l'abstract.
Abstract
'The Prince' by Niccolò Machiavelli (composed in 1513-4 and posthumously published in 1532) has by now half a millennium.
This work is one of the most read and debated all over the world, so a 'classic', therefore often approached as it were timeless (a classic is eternal for definition) insistently underlining its alleged topicality. Whether this work is a classic, it is because of its persistence in the course of history, but this fact has neither to inhibit us to understand the specific ways of its reception from context to context nor, and especially, its original traits.
For all of this, five hundred years after, rather than speak about the topicality and/or the obsolescence of this work, so as using terms that flatten it on our time losing its original sense, what I would like to propose here is to begin from its contextualization, looking after for the file rouge that binds us to it in a legacy, therefore not in a topicality, a legacy about which it is our responsibility what we will make with it.
Keywords
Niccolò Machiavelli, Il Principe, “verità effettuale”, power.
The International Conference “The Exercise of Power. 500 Years after The Prince Was Written”, organized by Lumina – The University of South-East Europe and The University of Bucharest, took place in the spring of 2014, between 10 to 11th of April, in Bucharest and Sinaia, under the patronage of the Italian Embassy in Bucharest. 386 total views, 40 views today

Introduction

EDITORIAL  POLICY

 While preserving its identity shaped ever since the publication of its first volume in 1996, beginning with the year 2011 the journal Philobiblon, edited by the Research Department of the Lucian Blaga Central University Library, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, has decided to define its new profile, focusing on multidisciplinary relations in the Humanities. Consequently, as of now, it will refer to itself as Transylvanian Journal of Multidisciplinary Research in Humanities.

The orientation followed by the journal in its approaches and multidisciplinary interest in Humanities is mainly, ifselectively, based on the meanings of Humanities as defined by the Ohio Humanities Council, but also the Humanities, Multidisciplinary Thomson Reuters category in Arts and Humanities Citation Index – 2011 and European Reference Index for the Humanities - ERIH.

Philobiblon becomes thus a particular forum of fathoming the senses of our human worlds and lives, debated in multidisciplinary researches of history, philosophy, anthropology, ethics, human communication, linguistics, literary theory and criticism, art theory and criticism, as well as investigations of various aspects of sciences which imply perspectives equally philosophical, historical, anthropological, and cultural. Including those which have recently been called “Medical Humanities”. These perspectives are taken up by the journal together with investigations on the records, documents, etc. of various library and archival collections. The studies launched by the journal have therefore the role of not only studying historical-documentary collections in a multidisciplinary way, but also to problematize and reformulate the – historical and timely! – senses and missions of library institutions and professions.

It is again an aim of the journal to offer a multidisciplinary framework of international representation and communication for scholars of the universities of Cluj, and also Transylvania, Romania, and the neighbouring countries in the multidisciplinary fields of the Humanities, as a declaration and development of the multiethnicity and multiculturality of both the university and the region, now in full process of international self-assessment.

Consequently, the journal comprises three permanent sections, meant to operate its concepts and intentions. Thefirst bears the title Editorial Argument, and has the role of revealing the sub-textual connections and fundamental interrelatedness of the studies and essays published in the issue in question, while the issues themselves are not necessarily explicitly thematic in each case. The second, main section is entitled: MAN – BOOK – KNOWLEDGE – SOCIETY, and includes on the one hand substantial original studies (of 15-25-36 p.), and on the other handoriginal essays connected to the disciplines and subjects contained in the orientations of the horizon of the Humanities, as detailed above. The third permanent section, MISCELLANEA, offers various information about regional, national, or international publications, treating them as “humanistic”, scientific, and cultural events.

In parallel with the reformulation of the journal, its periodicity also changes. Thus, as of 2011, the periodical will be published in two volumes per year, the first in June, and the second in December.
