In this paper I intend to deepen some aspects of Enzo Paci’s relationalism. In particular, I will explore Paci’s thought in the 1950s, coinciding with the start of the journal «aut aut» in 1951. I will therefore not discuss the subsequent «phenomenological-marxian» phase, nor the previous, existentialist one. The aim of my paper is to explain the idea of the relation as a principle, its specific features and the way in which Paci makes this principle interact with contemporary reflection. Paci’s theoretical proposal, which we still have to consider today, is the need to transform philosophy itself into something relational: the need to exhibit philosophizing itself as a practice of relation.
