About the journal

«Rivista di Estetica» aims to build a bridge between aesthetic and ontology, by discussing fundamental issues of aesthetic, ontology and philosophy of contemporary art. The journal is addressed to intellectuals from a range of formations and cultures, and its main topics are aesthetic, ontology and analytic philosophy.

One of the oldest philosophical journals in Italy, founded by Luigi Pareyson in 1960 as a quarterly journal about aesthetics and more general philosophical themes, it is now directed by Tiziana Andina, professor of Philosophy at the University of Torino.

Each issue is composed by three different sections: a monographic part focused on a particular theme; a second part called Varia, hosting essays dealing with a variety of topics; and a final part reserved to reviews.

Ontology of Finance

Edited by Gloria Sansò and Barry Smith

Although, in social ontology, the nature of money has been extensively studied, little has been said about the nature of other entities populating the financial world, such as debts, economic exchanges, and price drops. This special issue of Rivista di Estetica gathers novel research papers dealing precisely with some ontological problems pertaining to the finance landscape. While these papers do not exhaust the issues associated with the ontology of finance, they certainly improve our comprehension of the financial world, which is crucial for both theoretical and practical reasons.
