Metafisica e diritto in Vico prima delle Scienze Nuove

In the Antiquissima (1710) Metaphysics isn’t a speculation on the first being, but a philosophy which pursued the double aim of humiliating and exalting human thought, imitating divine science with that poetical freedom of ingenious doing. But Vico’s facere is a construction of fictiones which was full of truth but empty of moral “certainties”. Than in the De Uno (1720) the metaphysical interest was related to the reality of law and auctoritas as the world of action and certainty, as a part of truth. Scire-conscire was the nexus that joined together (in De constantia, 1722) the «verum conformatio» with the modern ethics.
