Ilaria Brocchini (born 1966 in Italy) is a French philosopher.


Brocchini studied in Italy, Germany and France. She has earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy at Sorbonne Université|Université La Sorbonne with a Dissertation on the philosopher Walter Benjamin.[1]

At the Maison des sciences de l'Homme Paris-Nord she has contributed to the research project Arts, appareils, diffusion.[2] [3][4]

Brocchini lives and works in Geneva.


Brocchini's philosophical interest focuses on the relationship between reason and faith.

The human being is a rational and a believing being and never only one of both.

Brocchini studies how this relation influences the material world. Belief transforms the material world in what Brocchini calls "traces". It gives this world an :de:Aura_(Benjamin)|aura, as the philosopher Walter Benjamin intended it.

This process is never ending because the human being is and remains a rational and a believing being.[5]

A disenchantment, as the sociologue Max Weber intended it, is, according to Brocchini, not possible and probably not suitable.
