Colloquia 29, edited by Luca Bianchi, Simon Gilson and Jill Kraye. Published 2017. ISBN: 978–1–908590–52–7.


Detailed Description

This volume is based on an international colloquium held at the Warburg Institute,

London, on 21–2 June 2013, and entitled ‘Philosophy and Knowledge in the Renaissance: Interpreting Aristotle in the Vernacular’. It situates and explores vernacular Aristotelianism in a broad chronological context, with a geographical focus on Italy. The disciplines covered include political thought, ethics, poetics, rhetoric, logic, natural philosophy, cosmology, meteorology and metaphysics; and among the genres considered are translations, popularizing commentaries, dialogues and works targeted at women. The wide-ranging and rich material presented in the volume is intended to stimulate scholars to develop this promising area of research still further.
