Hermeneutics in the Philosophy of Giambattista Vico a Revolutionary Humanistic Vision for the New Age
1993 0-7734-1939-X
This book was conceived as a "Vichian hermeneutical conversation" with its readers, to explore the origins and horizon of our common humanity. A corollary purpose is to acquaint the educated non-specialist with Vico's relevancy for a post-modern cultural paradigm which best preserves humanistic modes of thought. It adopts a straightforward, demystifying, colloquial language able to demonstrate how Vico helps to answer crucial questions such as: What does it meant to be human, or How do we live humanely in a rationalistic technocratic society?
