Om författaren

Giordano Bruno was a truly cosmopolitan figure of the late Italian Renaissance. Often called the Nolan after his birthplace near Naples, Bruno wandered restlessly across Europe preaching his doctrine of cosmic consciousness and publishing it in dialogues and poetry that read today like volcanic visa mer spiritual upheavals. With Tommaso Campanella, author of the utopian City of the Sun and a controversial Defense of Galileo, Bruno represents the traumatic decline of humanistic philosophy, heralding the birth of modern natural science at the hands of Galileo and Francis Bacon. His major writings, attacking the Roman Catholic Church and celebrating the poetic frenzy of creative geniuses, have inspired writers of a similar temperament down to the days of James Joyce, who drew on Bruno, as well as Giambattista Vico, for Finnegans Wake. Bruno died in 1600. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Cosmos and Giordano Bruno i Let's Talk Religion (april 2014)


What an experience!
The play itself is actually revolutionary in structure and contents, even for our standards: the threefold prolog untangled by the intervention of a janitor, the threefold language twist, the consciousness displayed somewhere by characters about their being on stage, more than bisexuality and homosexuality displayed, which seem to me more consistent with the spirit of farcical overthrowing of social rules common in comedy during Middle Age and Renaissance. Of course, Bruno was not as cynical as, say, Machiavelli in "La Mandragola".

Translation must have been a Titan's work. Most of all, I appreciated the Jamaican version of the necromancer and the conciseness: I'll wait until I have read the original (available here "Candelaio" presso Archivi di Teatro Napoli ) to comment deeper into the matter. It sounds like there are lots of interesting solutions!

> Publié pour la première fois en 1584, L’Infini, l’univers et les mondes est l’œuvre maîtresse de Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), celle dans laquelle il inaugure véritablement le débat sur l’infinité des mondes, ouvrant ainsi la voie à Kepler, Newton, voire à toute la science moderne.
Défenseur acharné du divin, il se devait d’aller plus loin que Copernic dont il est un fervent lecteur mais qui se limitait à des considérations astronomiques.
Posant l’un et le multiple, Dieu et la matière, sa création, comme indissociablement liés, éternels et sans limites, unis par le même désir de susciter la vie, il conçoit un univers sans bornes, peuplé d’innombrables mondes.
Il fait ainsi voler en éclats le géocentrisme ptoléméen et la cosmogonie d’Aristote que l’Église avait faite sienne. Cela ne lui fut pas pardonné. Livré à l’Inquisition il sera brûlé publiquement après huit années d’emprisonnement.
Écrit sous la forme d’un monologue et de dialogues truculents avec ses élèves et ses détracteurs, ce livre témoigne de toute la fraîcheur d’esprit et de toute la fougue d’un grand penseur qui pourrait être défini comme un « hérétique de la raison » et qui fut excommunié par les catholiques, les calvinistes et les luthériens.

Joop-le-philosophe | Feb 1, 2024 |
Nolano's passionate choler inspired by muses hypophetically pursues a Socratic irony of the necessity to write down through his mind and Intellect what had to be written down. The Pythagorean ass confirms the universal migrations and metempsychosis. The art of original is in flames of splendor, translation splendid the introduction and appenda well informative. Instead of a robust review, I'll share my side-thought. Great insight into the world doesn't change your fates. Knowing how and why the enemy works doesn't prevent him from destroying us or turning into samelike wretches. Stillness of high nature despite Gigantomachy is gold, moderation in thought, action and speech is silver along with eloquence and restraint. Acquire only things, skills, knowledge, experience that you may handle in a grand confrontation. For all the great, excellent things may be turned against you. Beware of superficial speech, be profound and grave in decisions, may wisdom possessed be invested proportionally to your position in the worldly theater. A man who is able must distribute his virtue in proportion to his position, wealth, status, power, influence, fame or the lack of thereof, whether in good or bad fortune, duration is the mark of character. Low of status, he still moves the impressions of Gods if he has a mind of imperial command.… (mer)
