Francesco Patrizi, filosofo del Rinascimento


Facciamo nostra l’interessante segnalazione di Klaus Graf comparsa sul blog Archivalia riguardo alla pubblicazione online degli atti di un convegno di studi dedicato al filosofo rinascimentale Francesco Patrizi.

Dalla Prefazione del volume:

«From the 24th through the 26th of April, 2014, the Center for Renaissance Texts at the Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, organized the international conference Francesco Patrizi: Philosopher of the Renaissance.
The conference was supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Czech Government within the framework of the Center for Renaissance Texts (CRT).
The aim of the conference was to support reasearch on the philosophy of Francesco Patrizi (Frane Petrić, born in Cres / Cherso 1529, died in Rome, 1597), one of the leading thinkers of the late Renaissance period and who achieved renown for his deep knowledge of Classical literary and philosophical texts and as a radical opponent of Aristotelianism and a defender of Platonic philosophy. His writing was not only on philosophy, but dealt also with the methodology of sciences, literature, history, musicology and political thinking. About twenty scholars from Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, USA and Czech Republic discussed this variety of topics in Patrizi´s thought and its influence at the conference “Francesco Patrizi: Philosopher of the Renaissance” in Olomouc. This volume contains the majority of the contributions».
