Author: Eugenio Colorni

Eugenio Colorni (1909-1944) was born in Milan to a well-to- do Jewish family steeped in the tradition of the Risorgimento. A philosopher and a student of G. A. Borgese (aesthetics) and P. Martinetti (metaphysics), he graduated in 1930 with a thesis on Leibnizian individualism supervised by Martinetti. After joining the Resistance, he was assassinated in May 1944 on the eve of the liberation of the capital. He is the author of THE DISCOVERY OF THE POSSIBLE: EXCERPTS FROM POLITICAL WRITINGS AND CORRESPONDENCE II (Bordighera Press, 2019) and CRITICAL THINKING IN ACTION: EXCERPTS FROM POLITICAL WRITINGS AND CORRESPONDENCE (Bordighera Press, 2019), edited by Luca Meldolesi and Nicoletta Stame.
