Abstract:In my review-essay I focus on some questions left open in Ferraris' book Documentalità. Its limits are the same as those of a descriptive metaphysics of the social world that does not investigate, but rather assumes as its starting points, problematic basic relations such as those between individual and intelligibility, the givenness of essences and our access to them, the difference between objects and objectification. Finally, Ferraris' conflation of production and practice brings me eventually to the link conspicuously missing in Ferraris' analysis: the subjects who produce and hand down the documents we decided to turn our exclusive attention to.
