Abstract

Moving from the analysis of M. Beretta's La rivoluzione culturale di Lucrezio (Roma 2015), the author emphasizes some recurrent flaws in the philosophical historiography on classical texts, both scientific and for a wider audience. He points out some problems which are long since affecting scholarship, such as a scanty attention to the text, a compliant use of unverified information, and (from an academic standpoint) the habit to expand one's bibliography with multiple versions of the same material. AU these bad practices have been constantly increasing over the last years due to the established link between the scientific writing and the Academia promotion procedures. The inflation of this phenomenon is not unrelated to the quantitative criteria applied to the research evaluation and control systems adopted by the Italian government during these last twenty years; among them, one may count the VQR, the journal ranking, the peer-review practice and so on.
