Über diesen Titel


Tommaso Campanella (1568-1639) est, a beaucoup d'egards, un frere de Giordano Bruno: meridional, de basse extraction, il entre dans l'ordre dominicain a Naples (1583) et connait bien vite des difficultes avec l'Inquisition (1591, 1593, 1596) et doit meme participer a une seance d'Auto-da-fe a Rome. Pris par les Espagnols a l'occasion d'un soulevement, il est horriblement torture par l'Inquisition de Naples, mais s'en tire en feignant la folie (1600). Commence alors un emprisonnement qui durera vingt-sept ans, dans des conditions souvent epouvantables. Au cours de ces annees, Campanella reussit a garder le contact avec le monde exterieur, il lit, donne des cours, recoit des visites et surtout ecrit sans cesse en puisant dans les ressources d'une memoire prodigieuse. Sa liberation des prisons de l'Inquisition en 1627 marque le debut d'une phase inattendue dans sa vie: il devient le theologien du pape, avant de devoir quitter Rome, a la suite d'un nouveau scandale. Sa vie s'acheve a Paris, non sans qu'il se soit cree, par son activite ininterrompue, un nouveau milieu d'amis - et d'ennemis. Depuis toujours, Campanella cherche a promouvoir un aggiornamento de la philosophie catholique, un mariage entre la theologie catholique et la philosophie platonicienne et la science contemporaine. D'ou son projet d'une sorte d'encyclopedie philosophique ou toutes les sciences definitivement reconciliees avec la theologie viendraient trouver leur place. Le livre de Germana Ernst retrace cette existence extraordinaire, tout en mettant en relief les aspects les plus importants de cette pensee jamais en repos.

From the Back Cover:

A friend of Galileo and author of the renowned utopia The City of the Sun, Tommaso Campanella (Stilo, Calabria,1568- Paris, 1639) is one of the most significant and original thinkers of the early modern period. His philosophical project centred upon the idea of reconciling Renaissance philosophy with a radical reform of science and society. He produced a complex and articulate synthesis of all fields of knowledge including magic and astrology. During his early formative years as a Dominican friar, he manifested a restless impatience towards Aristotelian philosophy and its followers. As a reaction, he enthusiastically embraced Bernardino Telesio s view that knowledge could only be acquired through the observation of things themselves, investigated through the senses and based on a correct understanding of the link between words and objects. Campanella s new natural philosophy rested on the principle that the books written by men needed to be compared with God s infinite book of nature, allowing them to correct the mistakes scattered throughout the human copies which were always imperfect, partial and liable to revisions. It is in the light of these principles that he defended Galileo s right to read the book of nature while denouncing the mistake of those be they Aristotelian philosophers or theologians who wanted to stop him from carrying on his natural investigations. However, Campanella maintained that the book of nature, far from being written in mathematical characters, was a living organism in which each natural being was endowed with life and a degree of sensibility that was appropriate for its preservation and propagation. Nature as a whole was an organism in which each single part was directed towards the common good. This is the reason why Campanella thought that nature had to be regarded as an ideal model for any political organisation. Political structures were often ruled by injustice and violence precisely because they had departed from that natural model. This book charts Campanella s intellectual life by showing the origin, development and persistence of some of the fundamental tenets of his thought.
