Apparent First Edition (NAP). From Emory Vico Studies, Donald Phillip Verene General Editor, Volume 3. This very rare book is in near perfect condition. As you can see from the photographs, despite being 26 years old, it looks just about new. No conspicuous wear to call out. The book is very solidly bound, absolutely no issues in that regard. The pages are very, very clean. No soiling anywhere. Nor are there any creases. And nobody has written anything or underlined anything in the book. There is one marking, a small stamp of the previous owner (Rabbi, scholar and psychoanalyst Alan W. Miller) at the top corner of the front free end paper. Despite the excellent condition of the book, it will be the least expensive copy for sale on the Internet. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: These essays discuss Vico's conception of metaphor and the imagination as unique elements in the history of Western philosophy that allow Vico to formulate a new relationship between rhetoric and philosophy. On this basis, rhetorical forms of thought and senses of language are shown to be at the basis of philosophical thought. Philosophy is understood as an enterprise that cannot overlook its traditional roots in poetic and rhetorical senses of the word. Connections between this point of view and Heidegger's analysis of language and Being are shown.
«...il volume di Grassi raccoglie una serie di saggi riguardanti le riflessioni del noto pensatore sulla retorica ... e l'umanesimo... Tali saggi, che coprono almeno due decadi della riflessione filosofica di Grassi, dal 1969 ad oggi, offrono l'opportunità di seguire da vicino i temi e i termini principali del suo pensiero, che si focalizza soprattutto intorno alla interconnessione tra l'umanesimo (gli studi di Grassi sulla cultura dell'umanesimo e del Rinascimento sono ben noti in tutto il mondo), il pensiero di Giambattista Vico, la retorica, da lui intesa come forma peculiare di conoscenza filosofica, e la riflessione di Heidegger.» (Giuseppe Patella, Bolletino della Società Filosofica Italiana)
