This volume comprises a new critical edition of Vico’s original Latin text and a faithful translation of this early work on metaphysics. Robert Miner’s introduction offers valuable guidance in understanding this challenging text and assessing its significance.

Jason Taylor is assistant professor of philosophy, Regis University. He lives in Denver, CO. Robert Miner is associate professor of philosophy in the Honors College, Baylor University. He lives in Waco, TX.

"Without any hesitation, Taylor has provided a superior translation of an important text."--Giuseppe Mazzotta, Yale University

“The linguistic elegance of this English translation conveys the archaicity of the language of the original text. Leaving the original Latin or Italian terms next to the English translation for words that are charged with traditional Vickian philosophical connotation is a great help to both the expert of Vico’s philosophy and to the novice.”—Alessandro Vettori, Rutgers University
