NOBRE, Marcos. O filósofo municipal, a Setzung e uma nova coalizão lógico-ontológica. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2011, n.90, pp. 35-55. ISSN 0101-3300. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002011000200004.
The article offers a critical overview of Brazilian philosopher José Arthur Giannotti's intellectual trajectory up to Lições de filosofia primeira (Lessons on First Philosophy, 2011), and attempts to show that, by giving up on the logic of Setzung and on the project of formulating a theory of "socially necessary illusions", Giannotti cannot find any longer the grounds for critique, a result of the abandonment of a theoretical force field built around Kant and Hegel for a different one, centered around Wittgenstein and Heidegger.
Keywords : Contemporary Brazilian Philosophy; José Arthur Giannotti; Setzung; Kant and Hegel; Heidegger and Wittgenstein.
