Our great depression of post-capitalism and not or capitalism
Tonči Kuzmanić, 2012, other component parts

Abstract: The aim of the paper is to reopen the problem of Capitalism from two perspectives. Firstly - and only formally - the aim is to tackle the problem from the perspective of "language games". Within this kind of Wittgensteinian argumentation the connection between the "name" (capitalism) and the "thing" (to pragma) is of paramount importance. Emphasis of the paper at that level is twofold: firstly, to show that capitalism is not a "thing". The-real-thing one should try to think and grasp is the endless quantity of language games about Capitalism. More precisely, the emphasis is not to be put on a "thing" but on something which is not at all "ordinary", let alone "natural language". Quite the contrary: the language which is the problem is the language of today's (post-modern) social sciences itself. If today we speak about Capitalism (as The-thing) and of "its crisis" from that perspective, we are not able to tackle the enormous existing problems at all. Rather, we just collect endless quantity of empty statements (including the responsibility for the existing mess). Second and in a way "more concrete" perspective is the historical one. The paper will reopen the problem of the "Big depression" and try to show that the capitalism, as we usually understand it, already evaporated in the thirties and forties of the 20th century. The aim of this part of the paper is to show that the post-capitalism ("managerial revolution" not only in the sense of Burnham, but above all in that of F. D. Roosevelt) has actually already defeated capitalism (but not its language games!) in two various ways. Firstly, from within (USA, Great Britain ...) and simultaneously from the outside (soviet Russia, fascist Italy, Nazi Germany ...). In this part of the paper I strongly emphasise the revolutionary and irreversible "self-change" within the field of property relations, the role of the government (not the state!), and the management of entire society ("Big-society"). The central thesis of the paper is that without serious re-thinking of the irreversible revolutionary (!) changes from the thirties and forties we cannot understand today's "globalisation" and "global crisis" and are literary doomed to failure in thinking of todayʼs "global society".

Mediterranei e mitteleuropei
Giulio Mellinato, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: In the 1860s in Trieste, the imminent opening of the Suez Canal created the conditions for reflection upon the possible advantages of the transformation of the Mediterranean Sea from a closed basin into a transit sea and what this transformation could bring to the local economy. In general, two perspectives emerged among the local intellectual elite: one that was substantially conservative and "legitimist" and tied to the valorisation of institutional continuity based on the Habsburg nexus, advocated by Pietro Kandler. The second view, more progressivist and "Mediterranean", advocated by Pasquale Revoltella, aimed at taking advantage of all the liberties of movement and autonomies enjoyed by the Triestine commercial class. Since then, the dichotomy between the "continental" and "Mediterranean" visions of the path that commerce in Trieste should undertake has become recurrent in reflections of the economy and politics in the town, hiding much more concrete interests and aspirations interwoven in the town's intricate social tissue
