Title: Traditie en individueel talent
Subtitle: Een filosofisch portret van Dante
Author(s): ROBIGLIO, Andrea Aldo
Journal: Tijdschrift voor Filosofie
Volume: 75 Issue: 2 Date: 2013
This article has a twofold aim. On the one hand, it will serve as an introduction to the three essays by Johannes Bartuschat, Luca Bianchi and Paolo Falzone. In this sense, it provides an updated survey of the educational milieu in thirteenth century Tuscany and presents a sketch of Dante’s broader intellectual climate, quickly touching on a few instances of philosophical learning that Dante elaborated on: the hierarchy of knowledge and his conception of Christian Skepticism. On the other hand, these pages try to draw a more individual profile of Dante as a thinker and involve the existential relevance of issues like that of ‘recognized dignity’ (nobility). Here, I will also suggest an unusual approach to look at Dante’s original philosophical project: i.e., a robust effort to draw the last implications from a radical understanding of Love.
