Vico and Naples: The Urban Origins of Modern Social Theory

Barbara Ann Naddeo

Vico and the Transformation of Rhetoric in Early Modern Europe[From the Publisher] "With its attention to Vico’s historical, rhetorical, and jurisprudential texts, this book recovers a Vico who was keenly attuned to the social changes transforming the political culture of his native city. He understood the crisis of the city’s corporate social order and described the new social groupings that would shape its future. In Naddeo’s pages, Vico comes alive as a prescient judge of his city and the political conundrum of Europe’s burgeoning metropolises."
