Abstract

I would like to recall the concepts of wonder and astonishment. The Latin expression Stupor Mundi, “world’s amazement” was generally used in history in its hyperbolic meaning or rather to point at the prominence and importance of personalities. In its essay, The etaphysics, Aristotle states that: “Thanks to the wonder of those, men at first and even now started to philosophize…”. Therefore the start and the cause of philosophy is this original wonder, transformed during time in the most various ways.
