This is a monographic volume dedicated to the topics of liberty, fraternity, equality the three core words of the French revolution, which have been influencing the politics, society, culture and self-image of the Western World (and not only, as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 shows) with a multitude of nuances over the time. In the three sections of the volume (left out the afterword at the end) a plurality of perspectives consider such ideal “triad”. The values beared by those principles will also be analysed from the perspective of a globalised world marked by a pandemic. The analysis also tries to account the complexity of the constantly changing relationships between the three values (let’s bear in mind that fraternity seems to be elusive, but it is instead very current) that have been characterising our contemporary “time of complexity”.
