Vico e la «temperatura»: sull’idea di Stato misto nel Diritto Universale
Keywords:Vico, Political Philosophy, History, Mixed State, Reason, Strength, Conflict
AbstractA scholar of Vico for years, the author analyses an issue which has not been very much dealt with in secondary Vichian literature: the issue of forms of Government in Universal Right. His thesis is that, although Vico cannot be considered as a theorist of “mixed” State, in Universal Right he elaborates a complex version of the “temperature” (the “mixtura”) which is functional to the general ethical-metaphysical system of the work, a system whose aim is that of proving the founding superiority of virtue upon strength, reason upon violence. Such system will then be replaced by a more purely anthropological point of view, in the various versions of Scienza Nuova.
