Gioberti, Vincenzo

 

Born Apr. 5, 1801, in Turin; died Oct. 26, 1852, in Paris. Italian politician and philosopher.

In his book On the Moral and Civil Primacy of the Italian Race (1843), Gioberti proposed the unification of Italian states within a confederation headed by the pope. This illusory and basically conservative idea (neo-Guelphism) was enthusiastically received by the moderate liberals among the Italian bourgeoisie. Giobertïs book exerted a great influence on public opinion in Italy and served as the banner of the liberal Catholic wing of the national movement that supported the unification of Italy from above. From December 1848 to February 1849, Gioberti headed the government of Piedmont.

Nonostante la feroce campagna discriminatoria condotta contro di lei, la direttrice della Gazzetta ribadisce la sua adesione a una Realpolitik riformista, nella piena consapevolezza dei meccanismi di delegittimazione operati dalla stampa, specialmente nei confronti di una donna.
His philosophy evolved from Cousin's eclectic system, to Pierre Leroux' objective idealism, and up to Vincenzo Gioberti's ontologism, in his attempt to discover a Christian philosophy by agency of which knowledge should be established on objective grounds, so that a post-Enlightenment defense of Christian revelation should become possible.
