Interpretation and Meaning in the Renaissance by Ian Maclean

Book Description

This book investigates theories of interpretation and meaning in Renaissance jurisprudence. How do they relate to the institutions of the law, especially pedagogical institutions? What characterizes the most commonly adopted theories of the legal profession? In what form were they published? How do they relate to modern canons of interpretation found in the trivium of grammar, dilaectics and rhetoric? In what ways, if any, do they mark a departure from medieval approaches? How do they relate to modern canons of interpretation? And how do they relate to similar issues in modern semantics and the philosophy of language, such as speech act theory or the 'logic of the supplement'? An answer to these questions is sought through an investigation of Renaissance problems concerning the authority of interpreters, the questions of signification, definition, verbal propriety and verbal extension, the problem of cavillation, the alternative interpretative strategies of ratio legis and mens legislatoris, the performative functions of language, and custom and equity as means of interpretation.

Books By Author Ian Maclean

Scholarship, Commerce, Religion by Ian Maclean Scholarship, Commerce, Religion, Hardback (March 2012)

This study of the learned book trade of the late Renaissance reveals how many features of today's publishing world were in place even then. Beginning in Frankfurt, Maclean surveys the authors, publishers, censors, and sellers who operated in this fraught religious atmosphere and overheated market, and ends with the market's decline in the 1620s.

Don Juan and Other Plays by Ian Maclean Don Juan and Other Plays, Paperback (June 2008)

Moliere's prose plays demonstrate both his versatility as a playwright and the reasons for his enduring popularity from the France of Louis XIV to the present.

Discourse on the Method by Ian Maclean Discourse on the Method, Paperback (April 2008)

Descartes's A Discourse on the Method of Correctly Conducting One's Reason and Seeking the Truth in the Sciences marks a watershed in European thought; in it, the author provides an informal intellectual autobiography in the vernacular for a non-specialist readership, sweeps away all previous philosophical traditions, and sets out in brief his radical new philosophy.

Logic, Signs and Nature in the Renaissance by Ian Maclean Logic, Signs and Nature in the Renaissance, Paperback (April 2007)

The second in a sequence exploring the foundations of learning in the Renaissance, here focusing on medicine.
