Giambattista Vico's discreta domanda: between Cartesian hypothesis, biblical demonstration, and mathesis politica

P. 67-78.

 

This article is focused on the epistemological status of the New Science XLI Element, situated at an intersection of Biblical hermeneutics, civil science, and Cartesian «hypothetical cosmology». Our study seeks to disentangle the web of polemical contexts coming together in the «diluvian postulate» and to explain the peculiarity of this hybrid political–physical argument within the economy of Vichian opus magnum.
