'En France, tout ce qui pèse et qui compte se veut et se dit sans frontières. Et si le sans-frontiérisme était un leurre, une fuite, une lâcheté?
Partout sur los angeles mappemonde, et contre toute attente, se creusent ou renaissent de nouvelles et d'antiques frontières. Telle est l. a. réalité.
En bon Européen, je choisis de célébrer ce que d'autres déplorent : l. a. frontière comme vaccin contre l'épidémie des murs, remède à l'indifférence et sauvegarde du vivant.
D'où ce Manifeste à rebrousse-poil, qui étonne et détonne, mais qui, déchiffrant notre passé, ose faire face à l'avenir.'

Non è vero – neanche in pace di crisi – che è utile solo ciò che produce profitto.

Attraverso le riflessioni di grandi filosofi (Platone, Aristotele, Zhuang-zi, Pico della Mirandola, Montaigne, Bruno, Campanella, Bacone, Kant, Tocqueville, Newman, Poincaré, Heidegger, Bataille) e di grandi scrittori (Ovidio, Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio, Alberti, Ariosto, Moro, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Milton, Lessing, Leopardi, Hugo, Gautier, Dickens, Herzen, Baudelaire, Stevenson, Kakuzo Okakura, García Lorca, García Márquez, Ionesco, Calvino, Foste Wallace), Nuccio Ordine mostra come l'ossessione del possesso e il culto dell'utilità finiscano consistent with inaridire lo spirito, mettendo in pericolo non solo le scuole e le università, l'arte e l. a. creatività, ma anche alcuni valori fondamentali come los angeles dignitas hominis, l'amore e l. a. verità. Abraham Flexner – nel suo affascinante saggio tradotto consistent with l. a. prima volta in italiano – ricorda che natural le scienze ci insegnano l'utilità dell'inutile. Eliminando los angeles gratuità e l'inutile, uccidendo quei lussi ritenuti superflui, difficilmente l'homo sapiens potrà rendere più umana l'umanità.
