TO BE SOCIALIST, TODAY
They ask for me some reflections on the theme in appendices. Question really rich, because make possible an analysis that is very close of the investigation that I undertook there is more than one decade.
In the subject to be treated have present two orders of problems: 1st to be socialist. 2nd to be socialist, today. But just as in the poem parmenidian the two roads of the investigation are reduced the only one, the road that is. For that is truly in cause is being, to be socialist. Agitate the present time concerning the socialism is not more than a redundancy, best saying, a way to falsify a problem that doesn't have two centuries of existence united effective. The themes that ineluctable belongs to the vital space of the socialism it is the same he wants us we place in 1865 or in 1997. “But”, as in the Poem, “you judge with the reason the proof very answered that spoke.”
Being socialist and the one that that means has a historical dimension that it cannot be pilfered in spite of this statement, to leave the hair in the intellectuals' foot “engage.” It is on that historical dimension that is necessary to weave some considerations. “Of only one road we remain to speak; of what it is;”
There is in the humanity's history, years that don't have lucky. Came too much early or too much late to coincide with great events, wars or revolutions, been born before or after your term, they stay unknown of the future, same if they made all the possible ones in preparing new roads.
TOPICS FOR A PHILOSOPHY OF THE WORK IN PROUDHON
The work, far away from opposing to the progress of the philosophical thought, provokes it and it sustains it. He allows pondering him your focus in total reality of the human life. To clear the nature of a work that enrols simultaneously in a horizontal and vertical perspective, the philosophy should appeal for the modern science as much as for the old wisdom, for the revolutionary technique as for the essential values. Only for this price the philosophy of the work can give bill of the couple dimension of the human work that is at the same time historical devir that ventures spiritual.
For Proudhon the apology of the manual work acquires a felt polemic: labour “Right, writes in L'Avertissement aux propriétaires, dispended more intelligence to iron a horse that certain scribe to write a soap opera ". Feeling the threats that the modern time makes to weigh on the craft to which this cutler son meets linked by all the fibbers of the body and of the spirit, it insists on the facto that the whole handmade activated pawns the whole man and it allows to develop him/her the totality of your capacities. It is the exercise of a profession that constitutes the true union of the thought and of the action, of the intelligence and of the force. Wise person and action man in her if reencountered, in a common and conscious participation in the work.
“The Wise person participates in the execution, because it is only tends in view the execution that he moves forward in the discovery; the action man participates in the science, because, to execute the plan of the Wise person, it is necessary that acquires the intelligence of that ".
