In front of the artwork. Forms and otherness This paper aims to reflect on the close relationship between the humanities and ethics that is in the foundations common to both law and literature. I will take my cue from the theme proposed in the third session of the conference dedicated to “transitions”, to introduce the issue of otherness, which is the focus of my intervention. Understood as the “relationship with the other,” otherness is the problem of the ethics that bets on the law, and is also the theme that more deeply involves literary and artistic works, which entertain and require a constant dialogue with the “other.” Can the research approach that we are focusing on, law and literature – or better Law and the Humanities – help us to regain the ability to live this relationship? Can it lead us again towards the paths of human complexity?

Abstract

In front of the artwork. Forms and otherness This paper aims to reflect on the close relationship between the humanities and ethics that is in the foundations common to both law and literature. I will take my cue from the theme proposed in the third session of the conference dedicated to “transitions”, to introduce the issue of otherness, which is the focus of my intervention. Understood as the “relationship with the other,” otherness is the problem of the ethics that bets on the law, and is also the theme that more deeply involves literary and artistic works, which entertain and require a constant dialogue with the “other.” Can the research approach that we are focusing on, law and literature – or better Law and the Humanities – help us to regain the ability to live this relationship? Can it lead us again towards the paths of human complexity?
