Keywords: Giambattista Vico, Modern philosophy, Aesthetics, Political philosophy, Philosophy of law.

After an introductory section concerning the controversial issue of Vico’s place in the history of philosophy, the article aims at describing the current state of the inquiries on Vico’s thought. Some recurrent themes emerge from the studies of the last decade: scholars have focused on the comparison with the seventeenth-century philosophers, concentrating on the political and juridical perspective of Vico’s thought. Another major reason for interest is the role of imagination and memory in cognitive processes, no longer seen as antithetical to reason, but as the basis of an original theory of the image.
