In spite of the importance of Giovanni Battista Vico - the Italian philosopher whose reflections on history, metaphysics, rhetoric, law and other subjects were influential in the shaping of modernity - scholars have debated whether he presented a coherent philosophy or simply a set of provocative random ideas. In this study, James Goetsch argues that Vico's major work, the New Science, is a sustained, controlled poetic-philosophical meditation on the human world and that it is a philosophy in its own right.
