  2. Amos Edelheit (2009). Francesco Patrizi's Two Books on Space: Geometry, Mathematics, and Dialectic Beyond Aristotelian Science. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 40 (3):243-257.
    Francesco Patrizi was a competent Greek scholar, a mathematician, and a Neoplatonic thinker, well known for his sharp critique of Aristotle and the Aristotelian tradition. In this article I shall present, in the first part, the importance of the concept of a three-dimensional space which is regarded as a body, as opposed to the Aristotelian two-dimensional space or interval, in Patrizi’s discussion of physical space. This point, I shall argue, is an essential part of Patrizi’s overall critique of Aristotelian science, (...)

  3. Amos Edelheit (2008). Human Will, Human Dignity, and Freedom: A Study of Giorgio Benigno Salviati's Early Discussion of the Will, Urbino 1474-1482. Vivarium 46 (1):82-114.

  5. Amos Edelheit (2007). The 'Scholastic' Theology of Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola. Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 74 (2):523-570.
    This article examines Giovanni Pico della Mirandola’s detailed reaction against the condemnation of some of his famous Theses by a papal commission, through a careful reading of his Apology of 1487. This text, which was never studied in detail and still waits for a critical edition, reflects Pico’s remarkable familiarity with the scholastic thinkers up to his own times. As part of his self-defense, Pico deals with the relation between opinions and faith, probable knowledge and certain truth, philosophy and theology, (...)
