Vico, Genealogist of Modernity, Paperback / softback Book

Vico, Genealogist of Modernity Paperback / softback


In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity.

Miner documents the genesis of Vico's stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought.

Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico's critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the 'verum-factum' principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride.
