Bruno e Campanella. L'ambigua Circe e l'umbratile Diana

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Bruno and Campanella. The ambiguous Circe and the shady Diana

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Bruno and Campanella appear here united by a use of the myth as a reference to a doctrine and to a moral, natural or ontological reality. Bruno gives the myth an educational destination in the wider ambit of the ability to reveal the sense of the real that gives it. Within a different metaphysical vision, Campanella theorizes for the myth the same function, making it pass through the reading that the Christian tradition makes of it.
