In this lucid and probing study, Robert C. Miner argues that Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was the architect of a subversive, genealogical approach to modernity. Miner documents the genesis of Vico's stance toward modernity in the first phase of his thought. Through close examination of his early writings, centering on Vico's critique of Descartes and his elaboration of the 'verum-factum' principle, Vico, Genealogist of Modernity reveals that Vico strives to acknowledge the technical advances of modernity while unmasking its origins in human pride.

Can painting transform philosophy? In Inventing Falsehood, Making Truth, Malcolm Bull looks at Neapolitan art around 1700 through the eyes of the philosopher Giambattista Vico. Surrounded by extravagant examples of late Baroque painting by artists like Luca Giordano and Francesco Solimena, Vico concluded that human truth was a product of the imagination. Truth was not something that could be observed: instead, it was something made in the way that paintings were made--through the exercise of fantasy. Juxtaposing paintings and texts, Bull presents the masterpieces of late Baroque painting in early eighteenth-century Naples from an entirely new perspective. Revealing the close connections between the arguments of the philosophers and the arguments of the painters, he shows how Vico drew on both in his influential philosophy of history, The New Science. Bull suggests that painting can serve not just as an illustration for philosophical arguments, but also as the model for them--that painting itself has sometimes been a form of epistemological experiment, and that, perhaps surprisingly, the Neapolitan Baroque may have been one of the routes through which modern consciousness was formed.

What is the point of history? Why has the study of the past been so important for so long? Why History? A History contemplates two and a half thousand years of historianship to establish how very different thinkers in diverse contexts have conceived their activities, and to illustrate thepurposes that their historical investigations have served. Whether considering Herodotus, medieval religious exegesis, or twentieth-century cultural history, at the core of this work is the way that the present has been conceived to relate to the past. Alongside many changes in technique andphilosophy, Donald Bloxham's book reveals striking long-term continuities in justifications for the discipline.

Postliberal Theological Method

Postliberal Theological Method is a fresh, critical analysis of one of today's most influential theological movements. Drawing on recent thinking in analytic philosophy, particularly Donald Davidson's work on truth and meaning, Vidu raises questions about the linguistic turn in the theology of Hans Frei, George Lindbeck, John Milbank and others. 'Postliberal Theological Method is a book by a young scholar of considerable ability. Adonis Vidu is not afraid to ask disquieting questions about the semantic rules that govern much postliberal discourse, pointing, for instance, to the illegitimacy of incommensurability prior to the testing of dialogue. This book appeals throughout to a way of thinking which conscientiously tests the fine canons of its abstractive reasoning against practice and the particular. Thus over time it will free itself from the constraining limits of its own theological horizons, and from the undiminished latency of violence which lingers there. This is a serious study, in a field characterized by play, and we should take it seriously.' - Oliver Davies, Professor of Christian Doctrine, King's College London 'Vidu has written an exemplary critical engagement with postliberal theological method. This book analyses and clarifies the directions open to theology today.' - Philip Goodchild, Department of Theology, University of Nottingham 'In this valuable study, Adonis Vidu offers a searching analysis of the central tenets of recent post-liberal theological writing. These are subjected to rigorous scrutiny, thus producing an important discussion of some of the most significant influences upon contemporary theology.' - David Fergusson, Professor and Head of the School of Divinity, New College, University of Edinburgh, Scotland 'This is a perceptive, incisive, and judicious evaluation of precisely what the title describes. Dr Vidu values postliberal concerns with narrative, but looks for more on ontology. I warmly commend this excellent study, which is based on very wide reading and on careful, meticulous, research.' - Anthony C. Thiselton, Emeritus Professor of Christian Theology in the University of Nottingham and Research Professor in Christian Theology, the University of Chester, UK Adonis Vidu (PhD, University of Nottingham) is Lecturer in Theology at Emmanuel University, Oradea, Romania.
