Description

As the author affirms in the dedication letter, the Discorsi, to which Pona refers as Lezioni morali, were given at the Accademia Filarmonica in Verona. After a preamble and a commentary on the title, the commentator quotes passages from Nicomachean Ethics, book I, in the Latin translation by Argyropoulos and comments on them. In the preamble Pona outlines an overview of philosophy and its different sections following a pattern which is not different from the division of philosophy in filosofia speculativa (physics, mathematics and metaphysics) and filosofia attiva (ethics, economics and politics) widely diffused in the 16th c. reflection on the topic.
