|Author: ||Schaeffer, John D.|
This work, a new translation of Giambattista Vico’s preliminary version The New Science (La Scienza Nuova) gives the reader a complete picture of Vico as a forerunner of constructivist epistemology and a critic of the enlightenment, a significant humanist and culture theorist who influenced, among others, Karl Marx and James Joyce.
“to have this first version of Vico’s New Science available in this new translation gives the English reader acess to the full range of Vico’s originality and to his unique philosophy of Roman law.”-Prof. Donald Phillip Verene, Emory University
