Topic areas

Details

The soul, (if) possessed by animals, has been the issue of a lively gnoseological and semantic debate during the Renaissance. While in the Middle Age the attention was rather focused on the opposition between man and beast (the word “animal” is not commonly used), the status of the animal as a being provided with his own ontological and naturalistic domain become, during the Renaissance, the center of a strong debate, also related to ethical and anthropoloogical questions, inaugurating a new topic that will follow the development of the classical metaphysics until the the German idealistic thought of the Nineteenth Century. The present issue aims at investigating the theoretical consequences of the traits given to the animal by the philosophical inquiry from the 13th to the 19th Century.
