Beyond Nihilism

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

One of the effects of the current pandemic has been the calling into question of a general silence on the “ultimate questions.” The nihilistic vision of life, which was made famous by Nietzsche’s philosophy and has frequently returned in updated versions, considers such questions definitively outdated and meaningless.

The Israel-Gaza Strip Conflict

By: David Neuhaus, SJ

Laylat al-Qadr (Night of Power) is one of the holiest times in the life of Muslim Jerusalem.

‘Anthropocene: The Human Era’

By: Mauro Bossi, SJ

Anthropocene – The Human Era is a documentary film released in 2018 and directed by Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky and Nicholas de Pencier.

As of 2009 the International Commission on Stratigraphy established the Anthropocene Work Group to study this hypothesis. It should be noted that this scenario is disputed, both on...
