Abstract

When commenting on a paper of mine, “Political Correctness between Wise Stoicism and Violent Hypocrisy”, published in 2016 in the journal Philosophies (Magnani [2016]), the logician and philosopher John Woods has introduced the neologism “stancing”, he derived from the subtitle of my book of 2011 Understanding Violence. The Intertwining of Morality, Religion and Violence: A Philosophical Stance. Woods was referring to a specific practice of philosophy that characterizes my philosophical research: I especially like this neologism. To the aim of depicting my thoughts regarding the practice of philosophy I prefer, some biographical remarks have to be submitted to the attention of the reader, that will be of help in delineating the general idea of philosophizing as “stancing”.
