Abstract

Johann Gottfried Herder owned a copy of Versuche über den bürgerlichen Lauf der Nationen (Essays on the Civil History of the Nations) by the Neapolitan advocat and revolutionary Francesco Mario Pagano. Pagano transforms the evolutionary model of history of Giambattista Vico into a series of natural and historical disasters that eventually lead to radically new cultures and a primitive egalitarian society. Pagano's new myth of a primitive egalitarian society processes both the traumatic experience of disaster and epistemic ruptures. At the same time, that myth ignores the longue durie of mentalities, resulting in a dialectic of enlightenment. Had Herder taken notice of Pagano's Essays he could have confronted Pagano's systematic approach with an historical geography of European societies, starting from the "model of Renaissance Italy." while Pagano does not figure in Herder's writings, this article stages a fictitious discursive encounter that highlights the extent to which both authors' concerns and approaches could have provided a productive supplement and counter-perspective to Herder's philosophy of history.
