Aristotele veneziano. Il “De re publica” di Lauro Quirini e la tradizione politica classica
Guido Cappelli
Parole Rubate : Rivista Internazionale di Studi sulla Citazione , 2010,
Abstract: La nozione di fontes si va dimostrando sempre meno adatta a riflettere la ricchezza e la complessità della letteratura umanistica. Nei fontes consegnati a pie’ di pagina si riflette, meccanicamente e quasi materialmente, la concezione di una modernità subalterna e gregaria rispetto al pensiero classico. Questo articolo propone un diverso approccio allo studio del testo umanistico, basato sull’individuazione di genealogie culturali che mettano in luce tutti gli elementi dottrinari che a vario livello conformano un’opera. Il testo preso in esame è il De republica di Lauro Quirini, un trattato politico quattrocentesco in cui coscientemente l’autore innesta su una base aristotelica elementi del pensiero politico di tradizione latina, classica e medievale, adattando l’insieme alle circostanze ideologiche della sua epoca. The concept of fontes has shown its ever decreasing suitability to reflect the richness and complexity of humanistic literature. In the fontes printed as footnotes is reflected, mechanically and almost physically, the idea of a subaltern and gregarious modernity with regard to classical thought. This article presents a different approach to the study of the humanistic text, based on the identification of cultural genealogies which display all the elements of doctrine that make up a written work at various levels. The work examined is the De republica by Lauro Quirini, a fifteenth-century political treatise in which the author consciously inserts elements of the political thought of the Latin, classical and medieval traditions to an Aristotelian base, adapting such an ensemble to the ideological circumstances of his era.
“CHAUCERIAN RENAISSANCE: PERICLES ENCOUNTERS THE TWO NOBLE KINSMEN” FOR “THE WHOLE WORLD IS BECOME A HODGE-PODGE: GENERIC CHANGE IN CONTEXT”
S. HOLLIFIELD
Lucr?ri ?tiin?ifice : Management Agricol , 2009,
Abstract: The genre-blending of Troilus and Cressida, from the Prologue’s Henry V-like presentation of epic history in microcosm to the interventions of comedic romance, romantic satire, tragic romance and neoclassical tragedy, suggests that Shakespeare discovered in Chaucer a kaleidoscopic refraction of the medieval world and the English literary past. Rooted in the histories, refashioned as a touchstone of human interaction in the comedies, revisited as setting and tone in the tragedies, Shakespeare engaged his “memory” of Chaucer most directly in the tragicomedies. Inspired perhaps by Chaucerian juxtapositions of poet-narrators and their tales, Shakespeare explored the potential of generic multiplication and recombination most successfully in The Winter’s Tale and The Tempest, wherein narrator figures appear for narrative expediency (“Time”) or effect. In collaboration with other playwrights on “medieval” material, however—notably Pericles and The Two Noble Kinsmen, their narrators either ubiquitous or conspicuously absent—Shakespeare’s lens on the past tends to fracture.

Peregrinaciones a las fuentes de la medicina clásica A journey to the foundations of classical medicine
Ricardo Cruz-Coke M
Revista médica de Chile , 2007,
Abstract: The author narrates his trips, between 1951 and 2006, to the main historical sites of antique medicine, where physicians of pre-Columbian cultures of Mexico and Peru, Egypt, Greco Latin culture and Islamic civilizations, lived. The trip ends with a visit to medieval European medicine before Renaissance. A description of the main historical sites and the features of these medical and sanitary cultures is made. In antique civilizations, diseases were considered a punishment of pagan deities. Supernatural and magical influences were decisive in medical practice. The Greco Latin culture of Galen and Hippocrates freed manhood from these causes of diseases and gave a rational basis to the practice of medicine. The Islamic civilization allowed the transmission of Greco Latin culture to medieval Europe. This permitted the renaissance of European creativity and the foundation of modern scientific medicine in the sixteenth century. The author highlights the main virtues of classical Greco Latin medicine, that are the foundations of humanistic thoughts that will restrin the technological revolution of modern medicine (RevMéd Chile 2007; 135:1076-81)

Tradition and Imitation in Spenser’s The Faerie Queene
Jonathan Griffin
Journal of Arts and Humanities , 2013,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss Spenser’s use of imitation as a literary device in his allegorical epic poem The Faerie Queene, originally published in 1590. The paper begins with a synopsis of Spenser’s general intent behind the poem, as well as his use of the theoretical models of literary excellence proposed by his contemporary Sir Phillip Sidney. The paper then follows Spenser’s reinterpretation of Ariosto, his treatment of Virgil and Ovid, and chronicles his attempts to parody these imperious influences to create an epic that would give synthesis to the poetic tradition to which he belonged with his religious ethic and fervent nationalism, while paying tribute to his monarch, Elizabeth I.
The Renaissance Conception Regarding Technology
Robert Arn?utu
Journal for Communication and Culture , 2011,
Abstract: The Renaissance creates a clear-cut distinction between mechanical arts, which will come to be considered applied science by Bacon and Descartes, and fine arts. Dealing with the Renaissance approach to technology, this paper will focus, on the one hand, on those domains that combine theoretical and practical skills in order to create artifacts or to transform materials, and, on the other hand, with authors who debate the status of technological practices and knowledge. Thus, we will look at the developments and arguments regarding mechanics, alchemy, natural magic, mining and metallurgy, and at authors such as Georgius Agricola, Paracelsus, Masilio Ficino, Nicholas of Cusa, Galileo Galilei. The aim is to reconstruct the arguments regarding technology that challenged the established Scholastic-Aristotelian framework and made possible the Modern approaches.
Fundamentul sincretic al Atalantei Fugare/ The Syncretic Basis of Atlanta Fugiens
Cristian Ciceu
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2003,
Abstract: This paper aims at emphasizing several elements that give shape to the syncretism of the alchemic work Atalanta Fugiens, which represents one of the classic texts of alchemy and continues the hermetic and theosophical trends of the Renaissance. Atalanta Fugiens is of current interest because of its flavor of multimedia essay avant la lettre, as it gathers a series of emblems, epigrams, and al- chemic comments on the mythological Greek-Ro- man corpus in an attempt to order in an emblem- atic book the entire knowledge of humanity, to reformulate in alchemic terms the totality of the spiritual experience of humanity. The book may be compared both with a palimpsest and with a blending of elements of different natures (visual and auditory). However, what is most important is that the book exits the “Gutenberg galaxy” and enters territories that only today – thanks to computers and the Internet – are we able to explore.
