Vico and the «Sublime» Poetry in the «Age of the Developed Reason»

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Giambattista Vico; Pseudo-Longinus; Sublime Poetry; Age of the Developed Reason.

The essay proposes an analysis of the concept of sublime poetry in Vico and of the manner of its manifestation in the age of the so-called developed reason. For Vico this age can show the characters of a new barbarism, the barbarity of the subtleties of logic and of the imperialism of technical procedures. Now, sublime poetry is the real way in which the first men express themselves, and it can also be the way in which men of the third age, men of the age of men, men of the age of developed reason can rediscover an authentic sense of existence and establish a dialogue-like relationship with the world.
