Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Dust Jacket Included
Cloth, 8vo, 22 cm, 306 pp. From the blurb: "Burnt as a heretic in Rome, in 1589, Giordano Bruno remained until recently a heroic, but shadowy figure. Even today his philosophical system is rarely explored; indeed his confused discourses confront the reader with difficulties scarcely paralleled in the works of any other philosopher. Paul-Henri Michel here outlines Bruno's cosmology. It is his fundamental thesis that Bruno's effusions do embody a systematic philosophy of Nature; and after sketching his career and sources and discussing the textual problems, he takes in order the recurring motifs of the dialogues and poems. 'Students have long felt the need for an orderly survey such as the patient scholar-ship of M. Michel has now provided . The book is thoroughly documented, the chapters being supplemented by notes and illustrative quotations.' - Annals of Science." A translation of "La cosmologie de Giordano Bruno". Contents: Introduction; I. Bruno’s Cosmology; II. Bruno's Theory of Knowledge; III. Bruno's Theory of Virtue; Appendix: A. Toland-Leibniz Letters about Bruno’s Philosophy; B.
