Abstract

Over the last sixty years several studies have highlighted the prominent place that Aristotelianism still occupied in the 15th and the 16th century, not only in university curricula and in the schools of religious orders, but also in humanist milieus. The diffusion of Aristotle's thought through vernacular translations, compendia, paraphrases and commentaries has been instead largely neglected, as shown by the absence of any catalogues. Yet this is undoubtedly a major intellectual phenomenon, which ought to be recognized with a view to better understanding Aristotle's impact on Renaissance philosophical culture and his success among a broad public. This article offers a survey of the phenomenon, shows that Italy there played an outstanding role, and calls attention to the Somma della filosofia d'Aristotele published around 1565 by Lodovico Dolce: a rather mediocre compendium, which nevertheless provides good examples of how Italian vernacularizations might intermingle Aristotelianism with materials issuing from different philosophical traditions.
