What Does Thinking Mean?

By David Bidussa*

To think does not mean to tweet compulsively. To think with others means to re-establish and redesign a vision of goals that are worthy of being pursued through the means of reason and critical thinking. This is true at least if we don’t want to give up the will, desire and passion to create, and not be subjected to a better future” (Salvatore Veca, “Qualcosa di sinistra” – Something left-wing – Feltrinelli 2019, p.14). In the same way, the mouth was not created to shout, and the head is not on the neck to shake, but in order to think, in order to give purpose to the future. Thank you Salvatore Veca.
