Nonino Prize "Un Maestro del nostro tempo" 1993

Hans Jonas

In a period like the one we are living, in which the post-modern habit of proclaiming the inaccuracy of history, Hans Jonas, with his work, shows how to find out its objective meaning.

In this anti-dogmatic defense of the meaning of life and history – and, therefore, in spite of all, of progress – we can find Jonas’s teaching, which the jury of the Nonino Prize unanimously acknowledges as a fundamental lesson of life, culture and defense of the relation among the generations of our time.
