About the Authors
  • This account of the basic theme of Vico's mature philosophy explores the question of whether philosophical theories can ever be more than an intellectual expression of the underlying beliefs of an age. The first complete English translation of the 1725 text, Vico's The First New Science ia now accessible to a broad, new readership. It is accompanied by a glossary, bibliography, chronology of Vico's life and expository introduction.

    • Only English translation of the first of Vico's mature works to be written in Italian
    • The clearest expression of some of Vico's notoriously difficult doctrines
    • Full textual apparatus including glossary, bibliography and chronology of Vico's life
