  • Marsilio Ficino e il dibattito antiaverroista sulla provvidenza

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Valentina Zaffino
      Marsilio Ficino and the Anti-Averroist Debate on Providence. This article aims to reconstruct Aristotle’s influence on Marsilio Ficino’s Theologia Platonica, focusing especially on the theme of providence. First, it highlights the "platonization" that Aristotelianism underwent during the 15th century, not least at the hands of Ficino himself. Despite Averroes’ misguided interpretation of various Aristotelian treatises, Ficino nonetheless countenanced the possibility of philosophical harmony between Plato and Aristotle, although the latter had a propaedeutic function with respect to the study of the former. Second, this article focuses on the notion of providence, at least as it was understood by Ficino. Therefore, the research considers how in explicit reference to the pseudo-Aristotelian treatise De mundo, Ficino credited Aristotle with a providentialist theory, accepting a thesis which during the Renaissance was believed to be Aristotelian. Ficino’s acceptance and reinterpretation of this position is here investigated in detail.

  • Henry More against the Lurianic Kabbalah. The Arguments in the Fundamenta

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Giuliana Di Biase
      The Cambridge Platonist Henry More was fiercely averse to the Lurianic Kabbalah, with which he became acquainted through the two tomes of the Kabbala denudata (1677; 1684). More contributed to the first tome substantially and was highly influential in shaping the reception of this work, edited by Christian Knorr von Rosenroth. He denounced the incompatibility of the Christian religion with Luria’s system and in his last contribution, the Fundamenta, he put forward an apagogical argument meant to show the inconsistency of Luria’s teaching. The article aims at exploring the nature of More’s argument so as to highlight the philosophical essence of his criticism, the intention of which was to emphasize the incompatibility of the Kabbalah with any form of rational speculation. Luria’s doctrine appeared to More to be a compromise between materialism and spiritualism, a sort of hybrid theory that was even worse than materialism, given its misleading theistic appearance as well as the lack of internal coherence. This compromise was also morally unacceptable, being symptomatic of weakness of the will.

  • Il dibattito tra Damaris Masham e Mary Astell sull’amore di Dio: una
           congettura storiografica'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Emilio Maria De Tommaso
      Masham-Astell Debate on the Love of God: A Historiographical Conjecture' The purpose of this article is chiefly to challenge the common view that Lady Masham’s Discourse Concerning the Love of God (1696) was composed in response to the Letters Concerning the Love of God (1695) by Mary Astell and John Norris of Bemerton. An unbiased analysis of Masham’s work shows that she did not consider Astell as an adversary when she wrote her Discourse, which was instead an attack on Norris’s view on the love of God. Furthermore, although Astell believed herself to be the target of Masham’s criticisms and, accordingly, replied to them in The Christian Religion (1705), she misattributed Masham’s Discourse Concerning the Love of God to John Locke. The Author thus argues that, rigorously speaking, there was never a Masham-Astell controversy on the love of God and despite both learned ladies making significant contributions to this topic, such a debate was just a historiographical hypothesis grounded on conjecture.

  • Beyond the Boundaries of Representational Thinking: Hegel’s
           interpretation of Jakob Böhme during the Jena Period

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Simone Farinella
      The aim of this article is to investigate Hegel’s reception of Jakob Böhme during the Jena period. In section 1, the Author analyses Fragment 46 and Fragment 49 of The Jena Wastebook, in which Hegel outlines a God’s life-course inspired by Böhmian motives. For Hegel, the Böhmian theory of the wrath of God and fall of Lucifer expresses the opposition and reconciliation between nature (Lucifer) and spirit (God). The relational model here developed is that of an external negativity, which annihilates nature’s being-for-itself. In section 2, the Author shows Hegel’s use of the same relational model in The Jena Logic and Metaphysics, assuming a Kantian and Böhmian terminology. The part on the Highest Essence explains the opposition between the good and evil principles and their necessary unity. The introjection of the evil principle into the good principle is exactly what leads Hegel to investigate philosophically the myth of the fall. In sections 3 and 4, the emphasis is on the connection of this myth with the ideas of the wrath of God and fall of Lucifer: The Jena Logic and Metaphysics and The Phenomenology of Spirit consider Böhme’s thought as a prefiguration of that self-relational negativity which discloses the development of the thing itself.

  • Mondo e democrazia. Colonie e imperi nelle filosofie di Tocqueville e Mill

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Marco Zolli
      World and Democracy: Colonies and Empires in the Philosophies of Tocqueville and Mill. This article investigates Mill’s and Tocqueville’s political philosophies in light of their support and approval of the colonial practices of their times. Considering a large set of texts - articles, essays, and different kinds of contributions - specifically dedicated to the colonial problem, this article aims to offer a clearer interpretation and understanding of some of the most unexplored features of Tocqueville’s and Mill’s philosophies, from their notion of human nature and social development to their account of historical progress and global political thought. What emerges, despite their canonical belonging to a common liberal family, are constitutive and radical differences between the two. Mill’s notion of human nature, grounded on a firm distinction between the civilized man and the "barbarian", distinguished by their ability to cooperate or not, allows an account of history and progress as a consequence of the revolutionary actions of few and exceptional individuals over time. Political societies themselves are, in their fundamental structures, the consequences of the wit and action of those individuals. On the other hand, Tocqueville’s notion of human nature, grounded on the idea of natural sociability, allows a spontaneous and cooperative notion of historical development and conceives progress as the unintentional consequence of human action through times. These profound differences in the field of human nature and historical progress can help to explain the two radically different perspectives on the global politics of Tocqueville and Mill. While Mill, in order to grant the global realization of a universal process of civilization, hopes for a federal and global form of democracy, Tocqueville cannot conceive a united world, but a planet of growing empires in fight with one another to gain total hegemony. Keywords: Alexis de Tocqueville, John Stuart Mill, Democracy, Colonialism, Empire
