Uno dei motivi di fondo del dibattito filosofico degli ultimi anni ha nell’incontro-scontro tra analitici e continentali il proprio tema portante. Si è spesso detto che le tradizioni non comunicano e che i contenuti, oltre che gli stili filosofici, divergono in maniera significativa.
Ora si può forse indicare nella storia delle ermeneutiche applicate al pensiero di Nietzsche l. a. vicenda di un percorso alternativo, in cui due tradizioni in line with moti versi antitetiche convergono, sostenute da un duplice obiettivo: comprendere certo il pensiero nietzschiano, ma anche reinterpretare se stesse, in una direzione che è a un pace ricapitolazione genealogica del passato, e anticipazione teleologica del futuro. Questo studio traccia le linee essenziali di un lato di questo rapporto (Nietzsche e l. a. tradizione filosofica anglo-americana), concludendo come il dialogo tra opposti (non solo filosofia analitica efilosofia continentale, ma anche Nietzsche e tradizione analitica), o presunti tali sia non solo possibile, ma anche, di fatto, assolutamente proficuo.

With the assistance of practitioners in the project team, a strategy should be designed to ‘package’ and disseminate knowledge in such a way that it adds value to society. Academics may become involved in implementation in practice, but only up to a point. Once an initiative becomes self-sustainable, academics should withdraw. They should not become the practitioners, even though they should seek to maintain the relationship, be involved in monitoring, and seek opportunities for a new cycle of knowledge generating engagement with practice.

It takes the academic process beyond the unstructured milieu of traditional science into a more structured process that utilises features of project management practice in order to plan and implement a knowledge generation process. It is from this process that the notion of scoping derives. 30 Section 1 • Social Sciences 25/7/03 9:04 am Page 31 Social Engagement and the Creation of Knowledge Scoping is the exercise, at the beginning of a project, whereby project managers anticipate the key features of their project in a brainstorm-like fashion.
