Author: Ingrid D. Rowland Full Title: Giordano Bruno: Philosopher / Heretic Publisher: University Of Chicago Press; First Edition edition Year: 2016 ISBN: 978-0226730240 Pages: 352 Language: English Genre: Philosophers File type: EPUB Quality: Price: $15.63 Giordano Bruno (1548–1600) is one of the great figures of early modern Europe, and one of the least understood. Ingrid D. Rowland’s biography establishes him once and for all as a peer of Erasmus, Shakespeare, and Galileo—a thinker whose vision of the world prefigures ours. Writing with great verve and erudition, Rowland traces Bruno’s wanderings through a sixteenth-century Europe where every certainty of religion and philosophy has been called into question, and reveals how he valiantly defended his ideas to the very end, when he was burned at the stake as a heretic on Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori. ------------- Our members see more.
