Example text

No se mueve con relación a su lugar, porque no hay fuera de él nada adonde pueda trasladarse, ya que es el todo. No se crea [a sí mismo] porque no hay otro ser que él pueda desear ni querer, teniendo en cuenta que él posee todo el ser. No se corrompe, porque no hay ninguna otra cosa en que pueda transmutarse, puesto que él es todas las cosas. No puede aumentar ni disminuir, ya que es infinito, y así como no cabe agregarle [nada], así tampoco puede sustraérsele [nada], porque el infinito no tiene partes proporcionales.

Ernesto Schettino • 41 primeras hasta sus últimas obras (desde el De umbris hasta los textos póstumos como el De magia y el De vinculis in genere, pero especialmente presente en las obras centrales, tanto metafísicas como de filosofía de la naturaleza, como las ya mencionadas anteriormente), y se trata de una cuestión fundamental para entender su monismo, su dialéctica y su panteísmo. Aun aquellos intérpretes que han destacado la importancia de la dialéctica bruniana (como sería el caso de Tocco,19 Atanasievij,20 Cassirer,21 Namer,22 Védrine,23 Badaloni,24 Horowitz,25 Ciliberto26 y otros más) no han concedido suficiente importancia a las tesis sobre la escala, relacionándola adecuadamente con aquélla, salvo, en cierta medida y parcialmente, Arthur Lovejoy en su The Great Chain of Being,27 ya que el tema del libro se vincula directamente con el asunto, pero el tratamiento del caso Bruno resulta bastante limitado.

Per diversas enim ipsarum in materiae gremio figurationes contrahuntur, diviniore substantia in densam obscuramque corpoream commigrante, seque quodammodo finibus eiusdem adstringente. Sic enim per concretionem intelligibile unum et verum ad nos descendit, quemadmodum necessarium est nos ad ipsum per abstractíonem ascendere. II, p. 213). Ernesto Schettino • 47 queda radical y no de respuestas definitivas. El problema también subyace en que las limitaciones no son sólo las de su propia capacidad creadora, enfrentada a una serie de expresiones del infinito en sus objetos de conocimiento, los cuales concibe finalmente como lo Uno o en unidad absoluta inalcanzable aunque de algún modo concebible racionalmente a través de su vestigio —igualmente infinito y uno— que es la naturaleza expresada como universo.
