“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” —
Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600) was one of the most original and complete philosophers of his time. The author of numerous treatises, dialogues and miscellaneous works, such as The Heroic Frenzies and The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast (1584), Giordano Bruno travelled throughout Europe and its royal courts. In 1600 he was burnt at the stake for heresy by the Inquisition on the Campo dei Fiori, Rome. His ferocious tirades against all forms of dogmatism, his cosmological reflections tending towards the infinity of worlds and his passionate research into mastering the mechanics of the imagination were the fertile seeds of a work which represents the culmination of Renaissance Humanism.
Every year, on UNESCO's World Philosophy Day, we offer a series of interesting lectures. For this year, we have chosen these particular themes. Join us for interesting conversations and free cakes.
