GIORDANO BRUNO THE EXPULSION OF THE TRIUMPHANT BEAST PDF

The author of more than sixty works on mathematics, science, ethics, philosophy, metaphysics, the art of memory, and esoteric mysticism, Bruno had a profound impact on Western thought. In my translation, I have endeavored to convey to the reader not only the literal meaning of Spaccio de la bestia trionfante but also its style. With this aim in mind, I have made every effort to preserve the flavor of Bruno's poetical prose, without violating the spirit of the English language. When necessary, however, I changed the word order, modified the punctuation, paragraphed passages that ran on for several pages, and broke up involved sentences especially after clauses ending with a colon or semicolon, where a change of subject was indicated. Wherever I felt that the antecedents in Bruno's involved sentence structure were ambiguous, I inserted them either in the text itself or in bracketed inter-.

Arthur D. Imerti Introduction. He might have been referring to the sixteenth-century Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno, who was tried by two Inquisitions and burned at the stake in Rome in Bruno's most representative work, Spaccio de la bestia trionfante The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast , published in an atmosphere of secrecy in and never referred to as anything but blasphemous for more than a century, was singled out by the church tribunal at the summation of his final trial.

That is hardly surprising because the book is a daring indictment of the corruption of the social and religious institutions of his day. The "triumphant beast" signifies the reign of multifarious vices. Cast in the form of allegorical dialogues, Bruno's work presents the deliberations of the Greek gods who have assembled to banish from the heavens the constellations that remind them of their evil deeds. The crisis facing Jove, the aging father of the gods, is symbolic of the crisis in a Renaissance world profoundly disturbed by new religious, philosophical, and scientific ideas.

Imerti, former head of the Department of Foreign Languages at the New School for Social Research in New York City, provides a brilliant introduction to the philosopher who dared to voice his audacious theories of nature, religion, and history.

It was too esoteric in a particular way for me to successfully enter into it. View 2 comments. Feb 06, Peter J. This was an excellent, though difficult to source, work. Bruno is brilliant. He echoes a lot of Platonic and Pythagorean thought. This makes sense to those well versed in Plato, as the former is merely a refinement of the latter. What is tantalizing about Bruno is the possibility that he had access to additional Pythagoric materials, which are no longer extant today.

This man had the courage of a lion. Sep 24, Melinda rated it it was ok. It's hard to give only two stars to something that someone was burned alive at the stake for writing.

There are components where the beauty of the language, the subtle use of humor, and the presentation of the thought resulted in a discourse as profound as any I've read, but for the most part I felt I was wandering aimlessly through a diatribe that I can best describe tongue in cheek as 'the ravings of a heretic'.

There are five stars within, but you have to want them. Mar 23, Thomas rated it liked it. Jan 27, Paul rated it really liked it Shelves: philosophy , non-art-photo , reviewed. Wonderfully batshit insane -- the Deleuze of the sixteenth century. Apr 03, Stereo rated it really liked it. Brilliant but a bit too unusual for me to get into fully. Oct 16, John rated it liked it Shelves: philosophy.

I have to admit I skimmed parts of the book. The book contains a fascinating introduction that discusses the career and ideas of Bruno. The work itself is a dialogue where the Gods Olympian decide to clean up their act. Contains some funny and heretical "set pieces" such as when Mercury must carry out every mundane act ordained by Jove in a small Italian village.

His cosmological theories went beyond the Copernican model in identifying the Sun as just one of an infinite number of independently moving heavenly bodies: he is the first European man to have conceptualized the universe as a continuum where the stars we see at night are identical in nature to the Sun. He was burned at the stake by authorities in after the Roman Inquisition found him guilty of heresy.

After his death he gained considerable fame; in the 19th and early 20th centuries, commentators focusing on his astronomical beliefs regarded him as a martyr for free thought and modern scientific ideas. Recent assessments suggest that his ideas about the universe played a smaller role in his trial than his pantheist beliefs, which differed from the interpretations and scope of God held by Catholicism. More recent assessments, beginning with the pioneering work of Frances Yates, suggest that Bruno was deeply influenced by the astronomical facts of the universe inherited from Arab astrology, Neoplatonism and Renaissance Hermeticism.
