Bruno e il problema dell'affetto: L'Interpretazione della figura tricipite negli Eroici Furori

Translated title of the contribution: Bruno and the problem of affection: The interpretation of the triceps figure in the Eroici furori

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Giordano Bruno holds that we always have conficting emotions such as love and hate at the same time. Bruno advances this claim by arguing that the confict is the principle of human perfection. The purpose of this paper is to reconstruct and examine the Brunian theory of emotion, by focusing on his interpretation of the triple-headed beast (wolf, lion, dog), traditional allegory of time, as described in the Eroici furori. I shall also try to reveal why the Frenzied, not the Sage, is regarded as the ideal model for the human being in the Nolan philosophy.
