About the Author

Alexander U. Bertland is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Niagara University.


"This is an exceptionally erudite and quite original historical-philosophical reconsideration of the original context and pith of Vico's thought. It strives to understand Vico's famed theory of poetic imagination as first and foremost a political critique of the entrenched interests of the Neapolitan aristocracy and to carve open space for juridical reform that widened the scope of interests that its economic and political structures served." — Jason M. Wirth, Seattle University
