Cause, principle, and unity by Giordano Bruno( Book )

124 editions published between 1872 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giordano Bruno's notorious public death in 1600, at the hands of the Inquisition in Rome, marked the transition from Renaissance philosophy to the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century. In his philosophical works he addressed such delicate issues as the role of Christ as mediator and the distinction, in human beings, between soul and matter. This volume presents new translations of Cause, Principle and Unity, in which he challenges Aristotelian accounts of causality and spells out the implications of Copernicanism for a new theory of an infinite universe, and of two essays on magic, On Magic and A General Account of Bonding, in which he interprets earlier theories about magical events in the light of the unusual powers of natural phenomena. -- Back cover
The expulsion of the triumphant beast by Giordano Bruno( Book )

101 editions published between 1584 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lo "Spaccio de la bestia trionfante", è apparso a Londra nel 1584. Le sue parole chiave sono: giustizia, legge e giudizio, nella prospettiva di una radicale riforma morale e civile, utile e pragmatica, che implica nel contempo un profondo rinnovamento interiore dell'uomo. La conquista di una rinnovata umanità comporta lo spaccio (l'espulsione) dei vizi/bestie che infestano l'animo umano, rappresentati nell'opera attraverso la personificazione delle costellazioni celesti, tramite cioè quelle figure mitologiche che sin dall'antichità erano assurte a simboli di specifici tratti caratteriali

Giordano Bruno was as modern in this play as in his universe filled with inhabitable worlds. NASA is right now looking for the worlds Bruno predicted. But Bruno is downright funny in his play, as he is "dead serious" in the works for which he died. Here we're more likely to die--laughing. Bony thinks he's bedding his lover, but it's his wife. The scientist Bart spends every moment trying to make gold, until his ignored wife takes a lover. The teacher Manny reads his poems to his boys hoping to attract them as they attract him. How the boys defeat Manny is humorous. Several Naples street hooligans put on security jackets and steal from Manny and others. At least one character above is bisexual. Is this a contemporary play, or Candelaio from nearly 440 years ago? Bruno only wrote one play, the best first play ever written. Printed in Paris in 1582, the play waited four hundred years for the world to catch up to Bruno--not just in astronomy. Many know Giordano Bruno's martyrdom, but nobody thinks him outrageously funny, until they read this play, and this version

The Cabala of Pegasus by Giordano Bruno( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giordano Bruno's Cabala del cavallo pegaseo (The Cabala of Pegasus) grew out of the great Italian philosopher's experiences lecturing and debating at Oxford in early 1584. Having received a cold reception there because of his viewpoints, Bruno went on in the Cabala to attack the narrow-mindedness of the university - and by extension, all universities that resisted his advocacy of intellectual freethinking." "The Cabala of Pegasus consists of vernacular dialogues that turn on the indentification of the noble Pegasus (the spirit of poetry) and the humble ass (the vehicle of divine revelation). In the interplay of these ideas, Bruno explores the nature of poetry, divine authority, secular learning, and Pythagorean metempsychosis, which had great influence on James Joyce and many other writers and artists from the Renaissance to the modern period." "This book, the first English translation of The Cabala of Pegasus, contains both the English and Italian versions as well as helpful annotations. It will have particular appeal to all Renaissance scholars and those interested in the Renaissance cabalistic underpinnings of modern literature."--Jacket
De umbris idearum by Giordano Bruno( Book )

47 editions published between 1582 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo testo vengono raccolti tre importanti saggi in cui l'autore, confrontandosi con tradizioni filosofiche diverse, affronta una serie di temi, in particolare quello della memoria, che ritorneranno, sia pure in forma mutata, nelle sue opere successive. Le ombre delle idee (1582) analizza la memoria dapprima da un punto di vista teorico, soprattutto neoplatonico, per proporre poi delle regole pratiche. Il canto di Circe (1582) affronta lo stesso tema - affiancato a quello della decadenza universale - interessandosi questa volta alle componenti fisiologiche della conoscenza. Il sigillo dei sigilli (1583) studia il valore di alcune immagini-simbolo, utili a fissare i ricordi, fino a modificare la percezione stessa del reale

35 editions published between 1585 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unstrittig war es Brunos zentrales Anliegen, die zeitgenössischen geistigen, kulturellen und religiösen Mißstände der europäischen Gesellschaften in sarkastischen Lobeshymnen auf die Dummheit darzustellen. Gleichzeitig lassen sich dabei auch Konzepte extrapolieren, die der Autor diesen negativen Aspekten positiv entgegenstellt. Hier ist besonders die autonome Tätigkeit des Individuums zu nennen: Sie ist nicht von religiösen oder intellektuellen Autoritäten geleitet, sondern strebt nach authentischer, zeitgemäßer Erkenntnis und setzt sich damit für das politische Gemeinwohl ein

A Oxford, il rédige les deux trilogies de dialogues italiens, ainsi que "L'infini", l'"Univers et les mondes", "L'expulsion de la bête triomphante."
