9780268034689: Vico Genealogist Of Modernity

In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity. Miner documents the genesis of Vico's stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought. Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico's critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the 'verum-factum' principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride.

About the Author:

Robert C. Miner is professor of philosophy at Boston College.

From Library Journal:

Miner (philosophy, Boston Coll.) contends that Vico sought to undermine Descartes's philosophy, and the break in European thought it inaugurated, by means of a historical critique of reason. In this respect, Vico was a precursor of 19th-century historicism. Challenging Croce and Isaiah Berlin, Miner does not think that this critique made Vico into an essentially modern thinker. Instead, he contends that Vico used philology and historical investigation to undermine the pretensions of modern thought. Like St. Augustine, whom he followed, Vico contended that secular thought stems from human pride and is in essence sinful. Miner contrasts Vico with Nietzsche, who likewise pursued a genealogical method to criticize philosophy. Unlike Nietzsche, however, Vico aimed to defend Christianity. Miner's book rests on a thorough knowledge of Vico's work, especially stressing the early Universal Law. Though his interpretation has been heavily influenced by John Milbank's two-volume The Religious Dimension in the Thought of Giambattista Vico, it offers original insight and understanding into a seminal, if occasionally neglected, figure and is therefore highly recommended for larger public as well as academic libraries.

Descrizione libro University of Notre Dame Press, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity. Miner documents the genesis of Vico s stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought. Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico s critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the verum-factum principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride. Miner s careful analysis of the often neglected Universal Law shows how Vico uses Augustine to articulate a new conception of natural law that mediates between the idealism of Plato and Aristotle and the realism of Tacitus and Machiavelli. Vico emerges as a penetrating reader of traditional philosophy and philology, as well as a radical pioneer of modern historical consciousness. Miner also traces important connections between Vico s magnum opus, the New Science, and his earlier writings, arguing that the New Science is not merely a work of scientific history. Miner contends that this work is more fundamentally a genealogy that enacts Nietzsche s desire to treat etymology and language as signposts for understanding the development of moral concepts. Miner shows how Vico s genealogy attempts to disclose hidden continuities between the culture of secular modernity and the pagan institutions of idolatry, divination, and sacrifice. Throughout this engaging work, Miner portrays Vico s genealogy as expressly Augustinian and Catholic, yet sufficiently complex to resist assimilation to reactionary anti-modernism. According to Miner, the goal of Vico s genealogy is to encompass the best of ancient and medieval traditions within an encyclopedic fusion of history and philosophy that is both modern and Christian. Although Vico sees the age of man as moving toward the barbarism of reflection, his trust in divine providence saves him from nihilistic despair. Miner concludes that Vico s thought not only anticipates later efforts to infuse philosophy with historical consciousness, but also contains the seeds of a coherent alternative to the program of postmodern genealogy.
