Cabale du cheval pégaséen by Giordano Bruno( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in French and German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unstrittig war es Brunos zentrales Anliegen, die zeitgenössischen geistigen, kulturellen und religiösen Mißstände der europäischen Gesellschaften in sarkastischen Lobeshymnen auf die Dummheit darzustellen. Gleichzeitig lassen sich dabei auch Konzepte extrapolieren, die der Autor diesen negativen Aspekten positiv entgegenstellt. Hier ist besonders die autonome Tätigkeit des Individuums zu nennen: Sie ist nicht von religiösen oder intellektuellen Autoritäten geleitet, sondern strebt nach authentischer, zeitgemäßer Erkenntnis und setzt sich damit für das politische Gemeinwohl ein

Dino Compagni's chronicle of Florence by Dino Compagni( Book )

11 editions published in 1979 in Italian and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dino Campagni's classic chronicle gives a detailed account of a crucial period in the history of Florence, beginning about 1280 and ending in the first decade of the fourteenth century. During that time Florence was one of the largest cities in Europe and a center of commerce and culture. Its gold florin was the standard international currency; Giotto was revolutionizing the art of painting; Dante Alighieri and Guido Cavalcanti were transforming the vernacular love lyric. The era was marked as well by political turmoil and factional strife. The inexorable escalation of violence, as insult and reprisal led to arson and murder, provides the bitter content of Compagni's story. Dino Compagni was perfectly placed to observe the political turmoil. A successful merchant, a prominent member of the silk guild, an active member of the government. Gompagni-like Dante-sided with the Whites and, after their defeat in 1301, was barred from public office. He lived the rest of his life as an exile in his own city, mulling over the events that had led to the defeat of his party. This chronicle, the fruit of his observation and reflection, studies the damage wrought by uncontrolled factional strife, the causes of conflict, the connections between events, and the motives of the participants. Compagni judges passionately and harshly. Daniel Bornstein supplements his lucid translation with and extensive historical introduction and explanatory notes

Cause, principle, and unity by Giordano Bruno( Book )

12 editions published in 1973 in 3 languages and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giordano Bruno's notorious public death in 1600, at the hands of the Inquisition in Rome, marked the transition from Renaissance philosophy to the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century. In his philosophical works he addressed such delicate issues as the role of Christ as mediator and the distinction, in human beings, between soul and matter. This volume presents new translations of Cause, Principle and Unity, in which he challenges Aristotelian accounts of causality and spells out the implications of Copernicanism for a new theory of an infinite universe, and of two essays on magic, On Magic and A General Account of Bonding, in which he interprets earlier theories about magical events in the light of the unusual powers of natural phenomena. -- Back cover

The expulsion of the triumphant beast by Giordano Bruno( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in Italian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lo "Spaccio de la bestia trionfante", è apparso a Londra nel 1584. Le sue parole chiave sono: giustizia, legge e giudizio, nella prospettiva di una radicale riforma morale e civile, utile e pragmatica, che implica nel contempo un profondo rinnovamento interiore dell'uomo. La conquista di una rinnovata umanità comporta lo spaccio (l'espulsione) dei vizi/bestie che infestano l'animo umano, rappresentati nell'opera attraverso la personificazione delle costellazioni celesti, tramite cioè quelle figure mitologiche che sin dall'antichità erano assurte a simboli di specifici tratti caratteriali
