Vico and the World of Metaphor

Thanks to all who joined our intimate group for a look at the thoughts and ideas of Italian philosopher, Giambattista Vico.

Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was born in Naples. Largely self-taught, he spent most of his professional career as Professor of Rhetoric at the University of Naples. He developed important theories on education and language that he detailed in his mature work, La Scienza Nuova (The New Science,) published in 1725.

Neapolitan Express was a wonderful venue, and our authentic pizza was a delicious toast to our topic.
