Life[ edit ] Nicola Abbagnano was born in Salerno on 15 July He studied in Naples , and in November obtained a degree in philosophy , his thesis that became the subject of his first book Le sorgenti irrazionali del pensiero His mentor was Antonio Aliotta. At the same time he actively contributed as secretary of editorial staff to the review Logos , edited by his mentor Aliotta.

From to he was a full professor of History of Philosophy, and then in he was appointed to a full-time professorship at the Faculty of Letters and philosophy at the University of Turin. With his student, Franco Ferrarotti , Abbagnano founded in the Quaderni di sociologia, and in he was joint editor with Norberto Bobbio of the Rivista di filosofia.

Then from to he inspired a group of scholars for a "New Enlightenment," and organized a series of conventions attended by the philosophers who were engaged in the construction of a "lay" philosophy and who were interested in the main trends of the foreign philosophical thought.

In he began his contributions to the Turin newspaper La Stampa. He died on 9 September , and was buried in the cemetery of Santa Margherita Ligure , the Riviera town where he had spent his vacations for many years. Equally influential was the anti-idealist controversy that is particularly evident in his volume on art. After moving to Turin, Abbagnano turned to the study of existentialism , which by this time was also the interest of the general Italian philosophical culture.

In he played a very important part in the debate on existentialism that appeared in Primato, the review of the fascist opposition led by Giuseppe Bottai. The development of this idea in the fifties was precisely characterized both by his interest in science, in particular, sociology, and by an attempt to define the program of a philosophy, that he first called a "New Enlightenment" and later a "methodological empirism".

Besides the volumes and the essays on theoretical character, Nicola Abbagnano, since his youth he has published many historical monographs, including; Il nuovo idealismo inglese e americano , La filosofia di E. His major historiographic work is found in the Storia della filosofia published by UTET — , which was preceded by the Compendio di storia della filosofia — , which was closer to a textbook. A few years later the latter was followed by a collection entitled Storia delle scienze, which he coordinated for UTET His "philosophy of possible" condemned other existentialists for either denying human possibility or exaggerating it.

In his later work he tended to adopt a more naturalistic and scientific approach to philosophy. Some of his writings were translated into English in Critical Existentialism ed.

His last book, written a few months before his death, is the autobiographical text Ricordi di un filosofo I problemi della nostra vita, Milano, Dizionario di filosofia, Torino, Ricordi di un filosofo, Milano, Scritti neoilluministici, Torino,
