Download E-books Tutti i trattati peripatetici: Testo latino a fronte PDF

By Pietro Pomponazzi

I Tractatus mere peripatetici, editi tra il 1514 e il 1521, appartengono al periodo dell'insegnamento bolognese di Pomponazzi e rappresentano il tentativo di ricondurre al testo aristotelico tanto le problematiche suscitate dai fisici oxoniensi intorno alla quantizzazione delle qualità, quanto quelle relative alla mortalità dell'anima. Al primo ambito si iscrivono i primi tre trattati (il De intensione del 1514, il De reactione e l. a. Quaestio del 1515), in cui Pomponazzi polemizza con i fisici mertoniani e, dimostrando l'inconsistenza delle loro dottrine, spegne gli entusiasmi suscitati in Italia dalla logica calculatoria. Al secondo ambito si iscrivono il De immortalitate animae del 1516, il più fortunato dei trattati perettiani, l'Apologia del 1518 e il Defensorium del 1519, tutti centrati sul tema della mortalità dell'anima. l. a. radicalità della tesi non mancò di provocare l. a. reazione degli ambienti cattolici, soprattutto veneti, che accusarono l'autore di eresia. Defensorium costituisce los angeles risposta al De immortalitate di Nifo. Chiude l. a. raccolta il De nutritione del 1521, che esplora i temi della nutrizione e dell'accrescimento, dando un ulteriore supporto teorico alla tesi della materialità, e quindi della mortalità, dell'anima.
