Nuevo número de Aisthesis y nueva organización del Comité Editorial

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to inform you that the new issue of Aisthesis, Vol. 10(1),
2017 is now available online at the usual URL: .
This volume pays tribute to the memorable International Conference “Ways of
Imitation” held in Florence in November 12-14, 2015, gathering notable
contributions from Christoph Wulf, Andrew Benjamin, Vittorio Gallese, Ferenc
Hörcher, Andrea Borsari, Lidia Gasperoni, Andrea Capra, Stephen Kidd, Maria
Ortega Mañez, Claudio Rozzoni and Alessandro Cecchi. The issue is introduced
and edited by Fabrizio Desideri and Carole Talon-Hugon, and is further
extended by two additional papers provided by Ricardo Ibarlucia and Luca

We’d also like to take the opportunity to announce a partial rearrangement
of Aisthesis’ editorial board. First, we are delighted to welcome Andrea
Mecacci as our new Co-editor in place of Giovanni Matteucci to whom we
tribute our deepest thanks for his pristine work and dedication and our very
best wishes for his  important role as editor in chief of the historical
Journal, “Studi di Estetica”
( ). The hope
is that there will be a growing cooperation and synergy between the two
However, while Andrea Mecacci will team up with Filippo Fimiani, Giovanni
Matteucci, co-founder of Aisthesis together with Fabrizio Desideri,  will
still be part of Aisthesis’ editorial board as coordinator of the Direction
Committee to which we are flattered to welcome four new members: Andrew
Benjamin, Ricardo Ibarlucia, Maddalena Mazzocut-Mis and Carole Talon-Hugon.
With this new issue of Aisthesis, the work of Lorenzo Bartalesi and
Mariagrazia Portera in the Aisthesis workshop is recognized: both become
Associate Editors of the Journal, while Chiara Cantelli assumes the role of
Editorial Assistant and Pietro Conte that of Editorial Board’s coordinator.
It is also with great pleasure that we welcome Giacomo Fronzi and Valeria
Maggiore as new members of the editorial board and the new commitment of
three old members (Gianluca Consoli, Fausto Fraisopi and Thomas Vercruysse)
in order to monitor new publications in their respective fields: cognitive
sciences (Consoli), epistemology and ontology (Fraisopi) and Poetics

Prof. Fabrizio Desideri
