Giovanni Gentile e la lingua della modernità

Rosella Faraone


This article focuses on the relatedness between modernity and philosophical language, as set up by Giovanni Gentile. Gentile brings the origins of modern Italian philosophy back to Dante’s and Petrarca’s use of language. In his view, modernity begins when individuality started to mark the philosophical idiom and asserted its rights against any transcendent authority. Paradoxically, this happened through the Latin used by the Humanists.

Parole chiave
