Literature on Suicide 1516-1815, A Bibliographical Essay
|Author: ||Bernardini, Paolo|
This bibliographical essay is intended as a contribution to the history of ideas in the broadest sense and as an aid to new studies on suicide in early modern Europe. It includes items which can be considered as substantial steps, whether in a progressive or conservative direction, in the theoretical debate on suicide in this period. Monographic works make up the majority of the entries, and the author has added some commentary to those items which seemed to merit it, on account of their originality or because they are turning-points in the ideological debate on the subject.
