HUME E LA BELLEZZA DEL SISTEMA COPERNICANO
Parole chiave:Hume, Copernicus, Feeling, Beauty, Aesthetics.
In critical studies, Hume's relationship with Copernicus has rarely been examined and little space has been given to an analysis of the function that Hume assigns to the problem of moral feeling, moral beauty, and taste and to Milton's poetry. The purpose of the following pages will be precisely to investigate this relationship. The thesis that will emerge will be that the judgment on Copernicus is not pronounced only from a purely logical point of view but is also based on elements of Hume's moral and aesthetic theory of sentiment, taste and beauty.
