FriedrichFröbel(Resumo) Giordano Bruno (1548-1600)
Born in 1548 in Rome He had doubts about the Dogma of the Trinity Defender of humanism, current philosophy of the Renaissance (whose main representative was Erasmus) He argued that the Universe is infinite Also advocates Pantheism * He wroteDe linfinito universo e mondi, in 1584. (On Infinite, Universe and worlds) He questioned the teaching methods of his time. His forename was Filippo, adopting the name of Giordano when he joined the Dominican Order (at the convent of Naples in 1566). There he studied Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. He became Doctor in theology.
the universe is infinite, populated by thousands of solar systems, linking many other planets with intelligent life. Invited by the venetian noble Giovanni Mocenigo in 1590 was trapped and surrendered to the Inquisition in 1592; He advocated the heliocentric system The most controversial aspect of the thought of Bruno is his Cosmology, influenced by Nicholas of Cusa and Copernicus, stating that But it is likely that more important that this, to the Inquisition
Was his critical spirit, the refusal of the acceptance of dogmas and something in its time, disturbing: Man was considered as having been created from the image of God; Sustaining the possibility of numerous planets with intelligent life was strange, in that context.
He was sentenced by the Inquisition, and lived his last eight years under torture. Nevertheless he did not change his ideas. He was sentenced to death and executed in 1600, having been burned. It is possible that what happened to Bruno contributed to a more cautious position taken by Galileo.
