Giordano Bruno (/dʒɔːrˈdɑːnoʊ ˈbruːnoʊ/, Italian: ; Latin: Iordanus Brunus Nolanus; born Filippo Bruno, 1548 – 17 February 1600) was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet.

Giordano Bruno (/dʒɔːrˈdɑːnoʊ ˈbruːnoʊ/, Italian: ; Latin: Iordanus Brunus Nolanus; born Filippo Bruno, 1548 – 17 February 1600) was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, cosmological theorist, and Hermetic occultist. He is known for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then-novel Copernican model.

This 6-volume collection selects the best 19th-century studies on Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), the most famous Italian philosopher of the Renaissance.

Giordano Bruno (1548–1600) was one of the most adventurous thinkers of the Renaissance. Supremely confident in his intellectual abilities, he ridiculed Aristotelianism, especially its contemporary adherents. Copernicus’s heliocentric theory provided a starting point for his exposition of what he called a new philosophy.

Giordano Bruno was a philosopher in his own right. However, he was famous through the centuries due to his execution as a heretic. His pronouncements against teachings of the Catholic Church, his defence of the cosmology of Nicholas Copernicus, and his provocative personality, all this made him a paradigmatic figure of modernity. Bruno’s way of philosophizing is not looking for outright solutions but rather for the depth of the problems; he knows his predecessors and their strategies as well as their weaknesses, which he exposes satirically.

Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) is famous for being a heretic and for endorsing the Copernican system of the planets. This book identifies his place in the Aristotelian tradition. Occasionally, Bruno taught Aristotle at universities, and great part of his philosophy is engaging in interpreting and correcting Aristotle. In discussing the history of philosophical theories Bruno showed that the thorough study of the history of philosophy generates philosophy. Paul Richard Blum is .

Giordano Bruno was a name I had come across in various histories of Christianity and/or the Renaissance that I've read through the years but I knew very little about him other than that he was considered a heretic and burned at the stake. When I saw this book, I thought it would be a good opportunity to find out a bit more about someone who was little more than a name to me.

Giordano Bruno was burnt at the stake in Rome in 1600, accused of heresy by the Inquisition. His life took him from Italy to Northern Europe and England, and finally to Venice, where he was arrested.

Paul Richard Blum currently works at the Department of Philosophy . Renaissance humanists tended to disregard medieval scholasticism.

Paul Richard Blum currently works at the Department of Philosophy, Loyola University Maryland. Their current project is 'Slavery. Among the many studies on Giordano Bruno's philosophy, only few go into the technicalities of Renaissance astronomy compared with Giordano Bruno's scientific claims. But most of humanist anti-scholasticism was directed against late medieval exaggerations in the areas of conceptualism and nominalism.

This 6-volume collection selects the best 19th-century studies on Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), the most famous Italian philosopher of the Renaissance. It was during that period that the pioneering scholarly work on Bruno was written, much of which continues to be the basis of current Bruno studies. The set includes English, German, Italian and French works, gathering the texts that mark the first thorough modern interpretations of Bruno after the debates of the preceding centuries. Offering a rounded, comprehensive assessment of Bruno, they include accounts of his life, comparison of his thought with Nicholas of Cusa, a full record to his works, a study of his Latin works, and of the unpublished writings, and an examination of the influence upon him of medieval and Renaissance thinkers. Bruno is regarded by many as a forerunner of modern science and philosophy. Admired by Spinoza, Jacobi and Hegel, his metaphysics had a direct influence on classical German idealism, and he anticipated the theory of monism later advocated by Leibniz. His broad-ranging writings, taking in magic and mysticism, astronomy, metaphysics and theology, continue to interest and appeal to modern readers, and his tragic end, burned at the state as a heretic, transformed him into a martyr to free philosophical inquiry. These are previously unreprinted texts of Bruno. With the new editorial introductions by Bruno scholar Professor Dr. Paul Richard Blum, the collection should be of interest for the assessment and interpretation of one of the most influential of the Renaissance thinkers.
