The ethical commitment which animates fyinpaper is practice, amidst the facts of social life, of the critical approach typical of culture, starting with the ground of creativity.
The combination of society and culture is the key to understanding the general views of the medium and long term, as well as the most significant current events, whether small or large. It is a goal to be reached through articles, dossiers, essays without neglecting the value that culture itself has for the mind and the senses.
In this way, in an era of hybridism and complexity, fyinpaper experiences the synergy between, on the one hand, communication and journalism; on the other hand, university and specialization (hence the presence of a Scientific Committee in progress).
for your interest (fyin). Whose? Of the people. We all are people now, with the sole exception of the whiteflies. They, directly or indirectly, manage the world without a strong contradiction, which used to be the “middle class”, now fragmented, scattered and oscillating. So, there is a substantial silence, also from the intellectual figure, who has been dormant or commodified for some time, and perhaps even without motivation, given that the West is no longer the center of the world.
Meanwhile, the figure of the daily thinker comes forward, bearer of a responsible common sense and of the true and living feelings on society. We all are daily thinkers, in continuous dialogue with those who do it by profession and who do not always express truth and life. A way to stimulate people to think always with new stimuli.
At a time in which free voices are dwindling, or perhaps close to disappearing, we feel the need to be there, together with our followers, with a commitment: to do our best. Particularly on these issues: the peripheries of the world, the suburbs of cities, quality, the principle of values, environmental emergencies, inequalities and, last but not least, poverty and hunger.
