Dante’s Deadly Sins is a unique study of the moral philosophy behind Dante’s master work that considers the Commedia as he intended, namely, as a practical guide to moral betterment. Focusing on Inferno and Purgatorio, Belliotti examines the puzzles and paradoxes of Dante’s moral assumptions, his treatment of the 7 deadly sins, and how 10 of his most powerful moral lessons anticipate modern existentialism.

  • Analyzes the moral philosophy underpinning one of the greatest works of world culture
  • Summarizes the Inferno and Purgatorio, while underscoring their moral implications
  • Explains and evaluates Dante’s understanding of the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ and the ultimate role they play as the basis of human transgression.
  • Provides a detailed discussion of the philosophical concepts of moral desert and the law of contrapasso, using character case studies within Dante’s work
  • Connects the poem’s moral themes to our own contemporary condition

Recensione:

"Belliotti demonstrates remarkable parallels between Dante′s moral vision and modern Existentialist philosophy. He skillfully elucidates moral possibilities that we too confront when challenged by evildoing, punishment, freedom, and love."

Robert Ginsberg, Director, The International Center for the Arts, Humanities, and Value Inquiry

"Most engaging about this work is the author′s distinctive vision and voice, his capacity to bring together unexpected combinations of thought and style in ways that are insightful and productive. This is a work informed by broad learning, yet comfortable with personal anecdotes and pop culture references. As an exploration of classic literature as the source of philosophical engagement, it is original and thought–provoking."

Jeffrey Nesteruk, Franklin & Marshall College
