Un altro mondo? [Another world? - in Italian]

Abstract : Alexandre Koyré wrote that Newton and the science that followed led to a splitting of the world: on the one hand is the "world of qualities and of sensible perceptions", on the other is the "world of quantities and of reified geometry". A comparison between facts held true by common sense and false by the scientific image of the world (or vice versa) seems to confirm this view. But is the dichotomy a real one? Is the world of common sense really "another world" relative to the world of the natural sciences? In this paper we argue in support of a negative answer.
