The new science of Giambattista Vico by Giambattista Vico( Book )

72 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first new science by Giambattista Vico( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The First New Science gives a clear account of Vico's mature philosophy: the belief that certain functions which are necessary for the maintenance of human society and culture, including philosophy, also condition them historically. This challenges the traditional view that philosophy can lay claim to an historically independent viewpoint, thus bringing into question the legitimacy of the claims of universal prescriptive political theories as against the de facto political beliefs of particular historical societies. This is the first of Vico's later major books in which he wrote in Italian in order not merely to expound but to demonstrate in practice, his conception of the philosophical importance of etymology. This 2002 Cambridge Texts edition is the first complete English translation of the 1725 text. Accompanied by a glossary, bibliography, chronology of Vico's life and expository introduction, it makes this important work accessible to students for the first time
On the study methods of our time by Giambattista Vico( Book )

102 editions published between 1709 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecrit en 1709, ce texte est en fait un discours prononcé par G. Vico, qui enseigne la rhétorique. Il oppose l'enseignement humaniste à l'enseignement moderne qui s'impose en Europe suite aux thèses de Descartes sur la méthode de connaissances reposant sur la raison déductive. Un parallèle peut être fait avec la culture moderne, la crainte actuelle d'une évolution vers la barbarie de la réflexion

Vico : selected writings by Giambattista Vico( Book )

8 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giambattista Vico is now acknowledged to be one of the most important figures in the history of European philosophy and social thought and increasingly attention is being focused on his writings. These, however have been difficult to obtain in English and many have never been translated. A real need therefore exists and to meet this Professor Pompa has here translated and introduced a selection of the central, representative texts, where the most important and seminal of Vico's ideas are developed. The volume will make a major contribution towards the study of Vico's thought and this period in the history of philosophy. It will be invaluable to students of those subjects and of the social sciences generally
On the most ancient wisdom of the Italians : unearthed from the origins of the Latin language : including the disputation with the Giornale de' letterati d'Italia by Giambattista Vico( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and French and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Robert Flint introduced the thought of Giambattista Vico to the English-speaking world in 1884, the De Antiquissima Italorm Sapientia has been in peculiar position. It has been widely mentioned by Anglo-American philosophers but, unlike Vico's Study Method of Our Time and the New Science, little known in its entirety. Because the De Antiquissima contains Vico's fullest statement of the verum-factum principle, there are many references to the work, but the absence of an English translation until now may explain the lack of full-length monographs devoted to its significance in the development of Vico's philosophy
The new science of Giambattista Vico by Giambattista Vico( Book )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pioneering treatise that aroused great controversy when it was first published in 1725, Vico's New Science is acknowledged today to be one of the few works of authentic genius in the history of social theory. It represents the most ambitious attempt before Comte at comprehensive science of human society and the most profound analysis of the class struggle prior to Marx
Vico : the First New Science by Giambattista Vico( )

2 editions published in 2002 in Undetermined and English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vico's First New Science gives a clear account of the basic theme of his mature philosophy. This Cambridge Texts edition is the first complete English translation of the 1725 text, and is accompanied by a glossary, bibliography, chronology of Vico's life and expository introduction
New science : principles of the new science concerning the common nature of nations by Giambattista Vico( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Vico (1668-1744) lived his whole life as an obscure academic in Naples, his New Science is an astonishingly ambitious attempt to decode the history, mythology and law of the ancient world. It argues that the key to true understanding lies in accepting that the customs and emotional lives of the Greeks and Romans, Egyptians, Jews and Babylonians, were utterly different from our own. In examining these huge themes, Vico offers countless fresh insights into topics ranging from physics to (poetic) politics, money to monsters, and family structures to the Flood. Deeply influential since the dawn of Romanticism, the New Science even inspired the framework for Joyce's Ulysses. This new translation makes it clear why this work marked a turning-point in humanist thinking as significant as Newton's contemporary revolution in physics."--Jacket
Principj di scienza nuova d'intorno alla comune natura delle nazioni by Giambattista Vico( Book )

42 editions published between 1744 and 2005 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die neue Wissenschaft über die gemeinschaftliche Natur der Völker by Giambattista Vico( Book )

42 editions published between 1924 and 2010 in German and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic philosophers before Kant and Hegel. Although Giorgio Vasari had already diagnosed a cycle of rise, blossoming and decline in the history of art, Vico was the first to base this on a philosophical system. Isolated in Naples from direct contact with the philosophical life of his times, he worked at his grand design of the cycles of rise, blossoming, decline and eternal return which he saw in all areas of culture. His points of reference were ancient mythology and Greek and Roman history. To that extent, he is regarded today as the founder of the philosophy of history and the precursor of a tradition which extends to Hegel and Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West."

On the most ancient wisdom of the Italians : drawn out from the origins of the Latin language by Giambattista Vico( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume comprises a new critical edition and translation of Giambattista Vico's challenging and provoking early work On the Most Ancient Wisdom of the Italians. The Latin edition faithfully reproduces Vico's original 1710 text as first printed; it is accompanied by Jason Taylor's complete, accurate, and highly readable English translation." "In an illuminating introduction to the volume, Robert Miner elucidates Vico's short but difficult work; at the same time, he allows the reader to assess the importance of that work, in absolute terms as well as relative to Vico's other writings and the work of his numerous interlocutors in the republic of letters." "Taken as a whole, this volume provides the text and guidance to support a fresh engagement with Vico's thought, especially his earliest philosophical works. It will also serve as a valuable resource for students and scholars with interests in eighteenth-century thought."--Jacket
