RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 57501024 LA English T1 Giordano Bruno and the geometry of language A1 Saiber, Arielle., PB Ashgate PP Aldershot, Hampshire, England; Burlington, VT YR 2005 SN 0754633217 9780754633211 AB Giordano Bruno and the Geometry of Language brings to the fore a sixteenth-century philosopher's role in early modern Europe as a bridge between science and literature, or more specifically, between the spatial paradigm of geometry and that of language." "Through analysis of Bruno's work, Saiber shows how Bruno's writing necessitates a crafting of space, and is, in essence, a lexicon of spatial concepts. This study constitutes an original contribution both to scholarship on Bruno and to the fields of early modern scientific and literary studies. It also addresses the broader question of what role geometry has in the formation of any language and literature of any place and time."--Jacket.
