Description

Although Vico lived his whole life as an obscure academic in Naples, his New Science is an astonishingly ambitious attempt to provide a comprehensive science of all human society by decoding the hitory, mythology, and law of the ancient world. "My imagination grows every time I read Vico as it doesn't when I read Freud or Jung."—James Joyce.
