Since ancient times the great thinkers have had a special place in the consciences of individuals by inspiring their behavior and actions both public or private. We often try to find the right words to say something, and we wish we could say that something using the words of these greatest masters. These 106 tweets have been written to help you to find the exact words you are looking for. 106 master tweets is a collection of elegant quotes from influential thinkers and writers about the concepts of culture, existence, thought (meaning the activity of thinking), politics (i.e. the political behavior of man as social being) and society. As these texts are synthetic and decontextualized, they are often complex; in this e-book each one is presented with explanatory comment for better understanding and, above all, to keep you reflecting on them. In this way reading becomes an activity that is both pleasurable and profound, which touches upon the reasons why we believe and act in this world. “Reading makes a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man.” This is the first tweet of this e-book and it was written by the English philosopher and scientist Francis Bacon in the 17th century. It could be engraved on the stones of every school.
Francìsco Barros was born in La Spezia. Today, he lives in Florence, but he also feels Brazilian, the language of his name. He holds a BA from the University of Florence, where he graduated from the College of Liberal Arts. He then carried on with his studies of philosophical matters linked to existential topics, to philosophy of politics and to the connections between philosophy and psychoanalysis. Thus, he turned his attention to the pragmatic problems originating from the idealistic and complex tensions related to human existence by suggesting questions and answers to enrich the subjective nature of experience, the personal point of view relating it dialectically with the objective – intimate and external – reality.

Philosophy Digest and more), Florence, 2012.
