John Locke on the Human Soul the Way of Henry More digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
My aim is to highlight how much some controversial aspects of Locke’s views of the human soul may be clarified by confronting them with the thought of the Neoplatonic Henry More. Sound evidence in the Essay and elsewhere suggests that More’s theory of spiritual substances was congenial to Locke, for it represented an attractive alternative both to Cartesian dualism and Hobbes’ materialism. Locke followed More in considering self-motion, not thinking, as the proper attribute of spirits...

He rejects a view of ‘absolute’ freedom, which reflects a radical imposition of one’s will, independently from her/his conditions as natural and social being...

I filosofi finsero e persuasero. Osservazioni sulla funzione civile della religione pagana in Marsilio da Padova digital
format: Article | RIVISTA DI FILOSOFIA NEO-SCOLASTICA | Online First
Year: 2020
The problem of the civil religion has received much attention and commentary from the historians of modern political ideas. Less attention has been given to the medieval frame and tradition on this topic. The article focuses on the civil role of the pagan religion in some medieval authors, and particularly in Marsilius of Padua’s political thought (ch. V, first Dictio of Defensor pacis)...
