Emanuele IULA, “La crisi della parresia. Il problema delle eredità difficili in una prospettiva foucaultiana”, Ho theológos, 2022 (1), pp. 73-92).

Abstract in English
The article aims to offer a deconstruction of the foucauldian notion of parresia. The problem of sexual abuse in the Church and the ecological crisis create an attitude of mistrust vis-à-vis past generations and their legacy. In order to provide both a theoretical and ethical solution to this problem, the article will delineate a second generation parrhesia in which two new elements find a place: a critic of the transmissions happening between different generations and an ethic of the sacrifice for those who receive difficult heritages.

Keywords: parresia, transmission, truth, margins, sacrifice.
