Review of Metaphysics 39 (3):574-576 (1986)

In this, the latest contribution to the large literature on Giambattista Vico, Michael Mooney demonstrates the careful and insightful scholarship that we have come to expect of the students of Paul Oskar Kristeller. Written as a doctoral dissertation, the book is much more than an academic exercise; it is an extremely valuable contribution that sheds new light on this eighteenth century professor of rhetoric who dared to challenge the wisdom of the Father of Modern Philosophy.
