L’ultima rivoluzione spaziale globale
Il mondo nell’epoca delle imprese cosmonautiche
Keywords:Spatial Revolution, Nomos, Cosmonautics, Planetary thinking, Earth
The article explores the concept of the “Global Spatial Revolution” introduced by Schmitt in his Land and Sea (1942) and extends its meaning to a historical and philosophical dimension that looks back to the first space enterprises. Following the cosmological implications of the first and especially of the second space revolution (the one that has air as an element, and no longer the sea), a possible way, alternative to the usual ones, to think about the persistence of modernity in the so-called 'post-modern' age will be discussed.
Finally, in dialogue with authors such as Blumenberg, Axelos and Fuller, the genesis of a new worldview will be shown, which I propose to call “planetary thinking”, in order to distinguish it from our recent ecologism.
