Roberta Guccinelli (Member of the Max Scheler Gesellschaft) has just published the new Italian translation of Formalism in Ethics and Non-formal Ethics of Values: A New Attempt Toward the Foundation of an Ethical Personalism (Bompiani, 2013). Her translation is also accompanied by the original German text and by an extensive analytic index. The Formalism constitutes Max Scheler’s “opus magnum” and a model for thinking about moral and practical issues without leaving life aside. From a holistic perspective of axiological perception, this work presents a solid theory of value, that is antithetic to both relativism and absolutism in ethics. Scheler’s attempt was also that of providing a new foundation for a new personalism.
