ANTONIO GENOVESI: UNA RILETTURA ILLUMINISTA DELLE VIRTÙ COMPAGNE DELLA SAGGEZZA (PRUDENTIA/PHRONESIS)

Giacinta Spinosa

Abstract


The Neapolitan philosopher Antonio Genovesi (1713-1769) offers an Enlightenment re-reading of the doctrine of prudentia (wisdom) and its connected virtues. In this way he retrieves an Aristotelian-Stoic conception and sets it in a new historical, political and philosophical context. Therefore it becomes an attribute of a late-eighteenth-century man of government, who is able to put into practice his knowledge, with a view to achieving his own happiness and that of the citizens of his state.
