9780691148397: Essays on Giordano Bruno

This book gathers wide-ranging essays on the Italian Renaissance philosopher and cosmologist Giordano Bruno by one of the world's leading authorities on his work and life. Many of these essays were originally written in Italian and appear here in English for the first time. Bruno (1548-1600) is principally famous as a proponent of heliocentrism, the infinity of the universe, and the plurality of worlds. But his work spanned the sciences and humanities, sometimes touching the borders of the occult, and Hilary Gatti's essays richly reflect this diversity.

The book is divided into sections that address three broad subjects: the relationship between Bruno and the new science, the history of his reception in English culture, and the principal characteristics of his natural philosophy. A final essay examines why this advocate of a "tranquil universal philosophy" ended up being burned at the stake as a heretic by the Roman Inquisition. While the essays take many different approaches, they are united by a number of assumptions: that, although well versed in magic, Bruno cannot be defined primarily as a Renaissance Magus; that his aim was to articulate a new philosophy of nature; and that his thought, while based on ancient and medieval sources, represented a radical rupture with the philosophical schools of the past, helping forge a path toward a new modernity.

From the Inside Flap:

"Hilary Gatti's work on Giordano Bruno is among the most important and innovative of the past few decades. These essays will interest not only Bruno scholars and readers, but also scholars of English and Italian Renaissance literature, history, philosophy, religion, and the history of science. The contributions Gatti has made to Bruno studies have given direction and depth to research and dialogue, and will continue to do so for a long time to come."--Arielle Saiber, Bowdoin College

"Hilary Gatti is a noted specialist on Giordano Bruno, and this book makes available a wide range of her studies about this complex figure. It makes an important contribution to the intellectual history of early modern Europe."--David Marsh, Rutgers University

About the Author:

Hilary Gatti taught for many years at the University of Rome, La Sapienza. Her books include "Giordano Bruno and Renaissance Science" and "The Renaissance Drama of Knowledge: Giordano Bruno in England". She is also the editor of "Giordano Bruno: Philosopher of the Renaissance".
