Description

This volume, the second of two, treats all versions of the "Scienza Nuova", together with Vico's writings on jurisprudence. It is argued here that Vico's account of The Hebrews is crucial for his entire theoretical outlook, and that he fuses a cyclical account of social decline with a reworking of Augustines' "two cities" employment of history. With its companion volume, the book has implications for current theoretical debates, and should be of interest to philosophers, theologians, cultural theorists, literary critics, and historians of ideas.
