Leonardo Amoroso
Leonardo Amoroso is Professor of Aesthetics at the University of Pisa. He has made a special study of various key moments in aesthetics between the 18th and 19th century, always gauging its status in its context, and not merely as a discipline divorced from other fields of philosophical enquiry. He has edited numerous classic texts in aesthetics including studies of Hölderlin, Kant and Vico. More recently he has written on the birth of modern aesthetics and the contribution of Jewish thinkers. His main publications are: Nastri vichiani (Pisa 1997); Lettura della «Scienza nuova» di Vico (Torino 1998); Ratio & aesthetica. La nascita dell'estetica e la filosofia moderna (Pisa 2000); Scintille ebraiche. Spinoza, Vico e Benamozegh (Pisa 2004).
