This volume, edited and translated by Leon Pompa, provides the first complete English translation of Vico's 1725 text, in which he expresses his theory that the functions necessary for the maintenance of human society and culture are historically conditioning. The translation is supplemented by a critical introduction, glossary, bibliography, and chronology of Vico's life. Intended as a textbook for students in political theory. Annotation c.
