Giordano Bruno and the History of Philosophy: Sources, Context and Legacy

Posted By Paolo Rossini, Thursday, April 20, 2017

Bruno can claim to be the first thinker since antiquity to integrate a metaphysics, physics, psychology and ethics into an original, if unsystematically presented, philosophy, one that aspired to go beyond the reelaborations of Platonism, Aristotelianism or Scepticism within a Christian context that had hitherto prevailed. The outcome was a radical alternative to medieval and Renaissance interpretations of human nature, the cosmos and God. The panel invites proposals for papers that discuss Bruno's philosophy from this historical viewpoint, relating it to medieval and Renaissance currents of thought or to its reception in subsequent centuries or both.

The session will be organized by Paolo Rossini (Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore) and Dilwyn Knox (UCL); and will be sponsored by the RSA Philosophy Group, of which David Lines (Warwick University) is the discipline representative.

Proposals should include:

·      Title of the paper (15-words maximum)

·      Abstract (150-words maximum)

·      Keywords

·      Short CV (300-words maximum, including affiliation and contact information). Prose bios will not be consulted. CV guidelines and models

Proposals should be sent to Paolo Rossini ( and Dilwyn Knox ( by Wednesday, 31 May, 2017.
