Abstract

The arts and sciences evolve by specialisation and broadening of their scopes. Much innovation results from unusual combinations of views and techniques originating in widely different domains. However, stepping outside an established discipline entails the danger of 'shallowness', even if the primary challenge was a 'deep' integration problem. Acceptance of new departures requires recognition and understanding of what is involved, and this depends, among other things, on the adopted nomenclature of the insiders and the resulting perception by outsiders.Thus, current ways of referring to varieties of research and study - say, 'sciences' vs 'humanities' - often form obstacles to the appreciation of novel approaches. New views are necessary. But which angles must be considered?

Abstract

The book, which is a redrafting of the doctoral thesis, represents a retrospective on modern philosophical anthropology through two of its major exponents. More specifically, it shows how mythology, the history of philosophy and language and Vico’s conception of man have had as a constant yardstick the Cartesian approach of the psychology of Malebranche.
