L’eredità filosofica di Vico in Niccola Nicolini giureconsulto napoletano
Abstract: The Philosophical Legacy of Vico in Niccola Nicolini, Neapolitan Jurist.
Philosophers and scholars of Criminal Law have almost forgotten the great jurist Niccola Nicolini, famous exponent of legal science in Naples during the Restoration period. His scientific industriousness was extraordinary both in Criminal Law and in Procedure Law, and also in the judicial system theories. He stood out for his studies about history and philosophy of law. This paper presents his theory about punishment which deepens the admirable intuitions of Gianbattista Vico.
