This essay analyses the political element in Pantaleo Carabellese’s thought, starting from his main work on the topic titled The Political Idea of Italy. In his very huge work the political aspect can be considered both as timely – certainly because of the emergence of the great crisis after the second world war and the consequent reconstruction – and, at the same time, as something untimely because of the constant reference to an originary metaphysical dimension which, even if fully referred to the historic phenomenon, radically detaches from it, showing how politics is deeply embedded in metaphysics. Thus Carabellese, by rediscovering the peculiar elements of the Italian political idea, in its theoretical meaning, gets in touch, through Mazzini and St. Francis of Assisi, with that potential which lies inside our nation as the possibility of self-realization of human person in an horizon of concrete and universal peace.

Abstract

This essay analyses the political element in Pantaleo Carabellese’s thought, starting from his main work on the topic titled The Political Idea of Italy. In his very huge work the political aspect can be considered both as timely – certainly because of the emergence of the great crisis after the second world war and the consequent reconstruction – and, at the same time, as something untimely because of the constant reference to an originary metaphysical dimension which, even if fully referred to the historic phenomenon, radically detaches from it, showing how politics is deeply embedded in metaphysics. Thus Carabellese, by rediscovering the peculiar elements of the Italian political idea, in its theoretical meaning, gets in touch, through Mazzini and St. Francis of Assisi, with that potential which lies inside our nation as the possibility of self-realization of human person in an horizon of concrete and universal peace.
