Discorso breve intorno all'utilità  delle scienze, et arti

Description

The Discorso breve, dedicated to Alfonso Cavazzi, count of Somaglia, opens with a polemical preamble referring to a previous work by Bernardino Baldini (Bernardini Baldini Lusus ad m. Antonium Baldinum fratris filium, Milan: 1586). The short vernacular lecture deals with the division of arts and sciences following Aristotle as its main source. Aristotelian works such as Nicomachean Ethics, Politics, On the Soul, Metaphysics, Rhetoric and Poetics are often quoted and presented as fundamental references relevant to the topic approached. Baldini refers to some commentators of Aristotle as well as to other classical sources (e.g. Cicero, Plato, Galen etc.).
