Pressestimmen This is a brilliant study of one of the most versatile minds that the humanist culture of Renaissance Italy has produced. Written in a superb style Roick presents for the first time a comprehensive interpretation of Pontano as a political actor diplomat and philosopher whose work can be seen as a creative rewriting of Aristotelian virtue ethics. To understand the world of Pontano Roick has crossed different fields of inquiry including philosophy history literature poetry and astrology and his book is an excellent guide through this neglected but important territory of intellectual history. It is thereby not only the first book on Pontano as a thinker in his own right. It also makes a convincing case for the inclusion of Renaissance humanism in the study of moral and political philosophy in early-modern Europe. (Lodi Nauta Professor in the History of Philosophy University of Groningen The Netherlands 2016-10-17)The subject of this interesting and innovative study by Matthias Roick is the moral and political thought of the prolific Neapolitan diplomat and humanist Giovanni Pontano (1426-1503). It is based on the range of Pontano's various treatises and tracts as well as on his better known dialogues and poems; and it approaches his thought not only in terms of individual doctrines and theses but more comprehensively in terms of its re-envisioning of Aristotelian moral and political thought 'in a humanist key.' Centered as it is on the complex notion of virtue Pontano's Aristotelianism emerges not just as an academic or 'strained' Aristotelianism but rather as a powerful guide to knowledge and to human action in the turbulent world of fifteenth century Italian politics. (Michael Allen FBA Distinguished Professor Emeritus UCLA USA 2016-11-08)As it follows the theme of virtue throughout Giovanni Pontano's philosophical production Roick's book is an important contribution to current scholarship on Early Modern Aristotelianism as well as an exemplary work in intellectual history. In Roick's hands the 'great Pontano' his relationship with Aristotle and Medieval scholasticism his role in the Aragonese Kindgom of Naples and the history of Quattrocento Italy are not merely erudite topics but parts of a thoughtful reflection on how historical contexts shape philosophical ideas as well as our own way to look at Renaissance culture. (Matteo Soranzo Associate Professor of Italian Studies at McGill University McGill University Canada 2016-11-09) Werbetext This book explores the moral and political thought of Giovanni Pontano one of the key Aristotelian figures of Italian Renaissance humanism.
