Malinconia erotica : trattato sul mal d'amore by Jacques Ferrand( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in Italian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La malattia d'amore, chiamata anche malinconia erotica, o erotomania, è un'affezione sia dell'anima che del corpo: essa è quindi provacata sia da cause morali, cioè dal desiderio autonomo e dalle passioni eccessive dell'anima, sia da cause fisiologiche, come l'alterazione degli "umori" corporei. Tra i due tipi di cause vi è gioco reciproco e interazione continua. Ispirato a una simile impostazione, il trattato del medico francese Jacques Ferrand ... viene dato alle stampe, per la prima volta, nel 1610. Ed è subito scandalo. La scabrosità del tema spinge il tribunale eclesiastico e il parlamento di Tolosa a condannare, nel 1620, questa prima edizione... Sullo sfondo di un tentativo, condiviso da molti intellettuali e filosofi dell'epoca, di conciliare l'etica con la medicina, ritroviamo oggi in questo testo godibile ed erudito, non pochi elementi di modernità. Punto centrale dell'argomentazione di Ferrand ... è la sottile distinzione tra sintomi soggettivi e sintomi obiettivi della malattia: quei segni che permettono al medico di diagnosticarla precocemente, anche senza la "confessione" del paziente. Ma accanto all'intenzione didattico-scientifica, il testo di ferrand suggerisce alcune rilevanti istanze di carattere padagogico-morale: il disciplinamento delle condotte, la medicalizzazione della sessualità femminile, la moralizzazione e l'interdetto nei confronti dei comportamenti erotici e amorosi non finalizzati alla riproduzione della specie.

On the causes of the greatness and magnificence of cities, 1588 by Giovanni Botero( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first treatise ever written on the sociology of cities, Giovanni Botero's On the Causes of the Greatness and Magnificence of Cities (1588) marked a radical departure from previous literature on urban centres. It provided a revolutionary analysis of how cities function, and of the political, economic, demographic, and geographic factors that cause their growth and decline. Noteworthy too is Botero's original use of sources in his analysis: moving beyond familiar classical and biblical references, he drew remarkable insights from reports by travelers and missionaries about cities in the non-European world, especially in China. Though seminal in the history of urban studies, On the Causes of the Greatness and Magnificence of Cities has not been available in a modern English translation until now. This edition--which includes an introduction by Geoffrey Symcox on the intellectual context within which Botero's treatise was conceived--is a must-read for anyone interested in urban life and the development of cities."--Jacket
