Spinoza mistico nell’attualismo di Giovanni Gentile

This paper explores Giovanni Gentile’s reception of Spinoza and the influence played on it by the 18th and 19th century controversy over pantheism. In this respect, I argue that the metaphysics of the substance is an important route through which to understand the ontology of the subject in the frame of the ‘Attualismo’. My statement, which is supported by Gentile’s most famous works and passages of still unpublished lessons, intends to open up new perspectives for both Spinozistic study and research on italian idealism.
