Vol 41, No 2 (2021): The body and its surplus

Issue Description

At a historical moment in which a large part of the world’s population, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, found itself – a situation practically unprecedented – severely limited in their freedom of movement, the question about the body, both individual and social arises again urgently.
Within this problematic framework, «Teoria» devotes two issues to this discussion. The first issue contained essays that dealt with the theme of the body along historical and conceptual lines. The present issue considers this topic mainly from the point of view of contemporary philosophy, favoring a perspective that especially considers the political dimension of corporeality.
