Item description for Vico's Cultural History: The Production and Transmission of Ideas in Naples, 1685-1750 (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by Harold Samuel Stone...

A study of the cultural world of Giambattista Vico, one of the most creative social theorists of the eighteenth century. Based on extensive manuscript as well as printed materials, and relying on the methods of book and publishing history, this volume describes Vico's intellectual community. Special attention is paid to the interaction between scholars and Naples' vibrant operatic and artistic community. The first part of the book investigates a controversy concerning an inquisitorial investigation, Neapolitan travel literature, the papers of a scientific academy, and the patronage system for book publication. The second part describes the cultural context of Vico's writings and especially the three editions of The New Science. This work explains the accomplishments that made Naples one of the great cultural centers of the early Enlightenment.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vico's Cultural History: The Production and Transmission of Ideas in Naples, 1685-1750 (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History)?

brilliant and readable  Jun 19, 1999
Stone's book is full of completely relevant detail, documenting with his knowledge of personality and history, those revolutionary and disturbing times in Naples. Exploring book reading habits, printing, attitudes on the ground toward the Inquisition, local thinkers and their place in the larger intellectual world of the times, it makes captivating reading. He is doing what Vico might have directed him to do: get under the skins of the people of the time. His presentation of Vico as a seminal political thinker also opened my eyes to other aspects of the philosopher - my focus has been too "one-sided" - since I am focussing on a Jungian analysis of Vico (Mr Stone may cringe when he hears someone is attempting that). In any case, Mr Stone has helped me in my quest to discover what "type" Vico was. He makes tantalising hints at possible Masonic research Vico was involved with - I am based in London and is has proven hard to read it here; but I did locate it in the New York Public Library - I have not been able to complete reading as yet, but it was a thrilling experience to read the 80% I did manage sitting in that hot room in New York.
