GUIDELINES FOR PUBLICATION & EDITING
The soul, (if) possessed by animals, has been the issue of a lively gnoseological
and semantic debate during the Renaissance. While in the Middle Age the
attention was rather focused on the opposition between man and beast (the word
animal is not commonly used), the status of the animal as a being provided with
his own ontological and naturalistic domain become, during the Renaissance, the
center of a strong debate, also related to ethical and anthropoloogical questions,
inaugurating a new topic that will follow the development of the classical
metaphysics until the the German idealistic thought of the Nineteenth Century.
The present issue aims at investigating the theoretical consequences of the traits
given to the animal by the philosophical inquiry from the 13th to the 19th Century.
