Giordano Bruno's Imagination: Art of Memory between magic and Science

By a study of Giordano Bruno's art of memory, influenced by his magic, the prominent position of Bruno's imagination is exposed. After the brunian imagination is discussed throughout his memotechnical, magical and philosophical work, it will be placed in a broader context of history of science, to enlarge our vision of the transition period between aristotelian physics and modern science.
