Piergiacomo Severini, Being Is Doing With, Freedom and Existence in Jeanne Hersch

Piergiacomo Severini's book on Jeanne Hersch is now out in the Schwabe Verlag.

Piergiacomo Severini’s book, published at Schwabe Verlag, Switzerland, aims at introducing Jeanne Hersch, holding together her biography and her philosophy and showing in which sense her whole path can be seen as a continuous endeavour to guarantee better conditions for the exercise of freedom to more and more people. Thanks to the investigation of Hersch’s reflection on freedom throughout all her life, the reader should gain a tool to orient in the heterogeneous Herschian path. In addition, reconstructing the evolution of Hersch’s reflection on freedom also highlights the coherence among her varied engagements and texts, shedding new light on some of her minor contributions, which are still quite unknown. Thus, Jeanne Hersch’s philosophy turns out to be a consistent contribution to Existentialism and contemporary issues.

Piergiacomo Severini graduated in Philosophical Sciences at the University of Macerata. He was a visiting PhD student at the University of Zurich and earned his PhD title in Human Sciences at the University G. d’Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara in 2021, with the additional title of Doctor Europaeus.
