Abstract

Towards a history of categories: from the historical texts to the theoretical problems. The ongoing philosophical debate on categories needs a history of the problem as a methodological premise. Such a history needs a method as well, which can be found in the recent volume edited by Giuseppe D´Anna and Lorenzo Fossati, Categories. Histories and Perspectives (Georg Olms Verlag, 2017). Accordingly, the paper shows a possible fil rouge shared by all the papers of the volume. In so doing, the paper highlights the prominence of Aristotelian and Kantian paradigms in the discussions on the categorial problem. However, the volume also draws attention to the most recent developments of the debate that go beyond the traditional horizon. The possibility of a comparison between past and future of the categorial problem demonstrates the vitality of this issue.
