Giordano Bruno

Geburtstag: 1548
Todesdatum: 17. Februar 1600

Giordano Bruno war ein italienischer Priester, Dichter, Philosoph und Astronom. Er wurde durch die Inquisition der Ketzerei und Magie für schuldig befunden und vom Gouverneur von Rom zum Tod auf dem Scheiterhaufen verurteilt. Am 12. März 2000 erklärte Papst Johannes Paul II. nach Beratung mit dem päpstlichen Kulturrat und einer theologischen Kommission, die Hinrichtung sei nunmehr auch aus kirchlicher Sicht als Unrecht zu betrachten.

Über die heroischen Leidenschaften (1585)

„Wenn also Geist, Seele, Leben sich in allen Dingen vorfindet und in gewissen Abstufungen die ganze Materie erfüllt, so ist der Geist offenbar die wahre Wirklichkeit und die wahre Form aller Dinge. Die Weltseele ist also das constituierende Formalprincip des Universums und dessen, was es enthält; d. h. wenn das Leben sich in allen Dingen findet, so ist die Seele Form aller Dinge; sie ist überall die ordnende Macht für die Materie und herrscht in dem Zusammengesetzten; sie bewirkt die Zusammensetzung und den Zusammenhalt der Theile.“

"Se dunque il spirto, la anima, la vita si ritrova in tutte le cose e, secondo certi gradi, empie tutta la materia; viene certamente ad essere il vero atto e la vera forma de tutte le cose. L'anima, dunque, del mondo è il principio formale constitutivo de l'universo e di ciò che in quello si contiene. Dico che, se la vita si trova in tutte le cose, l'anima viene ad esser forma di tutte le cose: quella per tutto è presidente alla materia e signoreggia nelli composti, effettua la composizione e consistenzia de le parti." - De la causa, principio et uno (1584) pp. 244-5 modernsource.daphnet.org http://modernsource.daphnet.org/texts/Bruno/BruCausa,244%5B2%5Det245%5B1%5Det246%5B1%5D
Von der Ursache, dem Prinzip und dem Einen (1584)

„Es mag leicht sein, über den Beweisgang in der Wissenschaft Theorien aufzustellen; aber das Beweisen selbst ist schwer.“

Von der Ursache, dem Prinzip und dem Einen (1584)

„Der Schöpfer kann nichts anderes schaffen, als was er schaffen will; er will nichts anderes schaffen, als was er schafft; folglich kann er nichts anderes schaffen, als was er schafft. Wer also die Unendlichkeit der Schöpfung leugnet, leugnet das Unendlichsein des schaffenden Vermögens.“

„If all things are in common among friends, the most precious is Wisdom.“

—  Giordano Bruno

As quoted in Giordano Bruno : His Life and Thought (1950) by Dorothea Waley Singer http://www.positiveatheism.org/hist/bruno03.htm#CH3
Kontext: If all things are in common among friends, the most precious is Wisdom. What can Juno give which thou canst not receive from Wisdom? What mayest thou admire in Venus which thou mayest not also contemplate in Wisdom? Her beauty is not small, for the lord of all things taketh delight in her. Her I have loved and diligently sought from my youth up.

„Everywhere there is incessant relative change in position throughout the universe, and the observer is always at the centre of things.“

—  Giordano Bruno

Cause, Principle, and Unity (1584)
Kontext: This entire globe, this star, not being subject to death, and dissolution and annihilation being impossible anywhere in Nature, from time to time renews itself by changing and altering all its parts. There is no absolute up or down, as Aristotle taught; no absolute position in space; but the position of a body is relative to that of other bodies. Everywhere there is incessant relative change in position throughout the universe, and the observer is always at the centre of things.

„Cause, Principle, and One eternal
From whom being, life, and movement are suspended,
And which extends itself in length, breadth, and depth,
To whatever is in Heaven, on Earth, and Hell“

—  Giordano Bruno

"Of Love" as translated in The Infinite in Giordano Bruno : With a Translation of His Dialogue, Concerning the Cause, Principle, and One (1978) by Sidney Thomas Greenburg, p. 89
Variant translation:
Cause, Principle and One, the Sempiterne,
On whom all being, motion, life, depend.
From whom, in length, breadth, depth, their paths extend
As far as heaven, earth, hell their faces turn :
With sense, with mind, with reason, I discern
That not, rule, reckoning, may not comprehend
That power and bulk and multitude which tend
Beyond all lower, middle, and superne. <p> Blind error, ruthless time, ungentle doom,
Deaf envy, villain madness, zeal unwise,
Hard heart, unholy craft, bold deeds begun,
Shall never fill for one the air with gloom,
Or ever thrust a veil before these eyes,
Or ever hide from me my glorious sun.
As quoted in "Giordano Bruno" by Thomas Davidson, The Index Vol. VI. No. 36 (4 March 1886), p. 429
Cause, Principle, and Unity (1584)
Kontext: Cause, Principle, and One eternal
From whom being, life, and movement are suspended,
And which extends itself in length, breadth, and depth,
To whatever is in Heaven, on Earth, and Hell;
With sense, with reason, with mind, I discern,
That there is no act, measure, nor calculation, which can comprehend
That force, that vastness and that number,
Which exceeds whatever is inferior, middle, and highest;
Blind error, avaricious time, adverse fortune,
Deaf envy, vile madness, jealous iniquity,
Crude heart, perverse spirit, insane audacity,
Will not be sufficient to obscure the air for me,
Will not place the veil before my eyes,
Will never bring it about that I shall not
Contemplate my beautiful Sun.

„Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of his kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.“

—  Giordano Bruno

On the Infinite Universe and Worlds (1584)
Kontext: Make then your forecasts, my lords Astrologers, with your slavish physicians, by means of those astrolabes with which you seek to discern the fantastic nine moving spheres; in these you finally imprison your own minds, so that you appear to me but as parrots in a cage, while I watch you dancing up and down, turning and hopping within those circles. We know that the Supreme Ruler cannot have a seat so narrow, so miserable a throne, so trivial, so scanty a court, so small and feeble a simulacrum that phantasm can bring to birth, a dream shatter, a delusion restore, a calamity diminish, a misdeed abolish and a thought renew it again, so that indeed with a puff of air it were brimful and with a single gulp it were emptied. On the contrary we recognize a noble image, a marvellous conception, a supreme figure, an exalted shadow, an infinite representation of the represented infinity, a spectacle worthy of the excellence and supremacy of Him who transcendeth understanding, comprehension or grasp. Thus is the excellence of God magnified and the greatness of his kingdom made manifest; He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds.

„Her beauty is not small, for the lord of all things taketh delight in her. Her I have loved and diligently sought from my youth up.“

—  Giordano Bruno

„Heroic love is the property of those superior natures who are called insane (insano) not because they do not know (no sanno), but because they over-know (soprasanno).“

—  Giordano Bruno

As quoted in The Tragic Sense of Life (1913), by Miguel de Unamuno, as translated by J. E. Crawford Flitch; Conclusion : Don Quixote in the Contemporary European Tragi-Comedy
The Italian original is from Francesco de Sanctis, Storia della letteratura italiana, 1871/1890, p. 255 http://it.wikisource.org/wiki/Pagina:Storia_della_letteratura_italiana_II.djvu/267: "L'amore eroico è proprio delle nature superiori, dette insane, non perché non sanno, ma perché soprasanno..."

„Our philosophy… reduceth to a single origin and relateth to a single end, and maketh contraries to coincide so that there is one primal foundation both of origin and of end.“

—  Giordano Bruno

As translated by Dorothea Waley Singer (1950) <!-- p. 84 -->
De immenso (1591)
Kontext: Our philosophy… reduceth to a single origin and relateth to a single end, and maketh contraries to coincide so that there is one primal foundation both of origin and of end. From this coincidence of contraries, we deduce that ultimately it is divinely true that contraries are within contraries; wherefore it is not difficult to compass the knowledge that each thing is within every other.

„We find that everything that makes up difference and number is pure accident, pure show, pure constitution.“

—  Giordano Bruno

Cause, Principle, and Unity (1584)
Kontext: We find that everything that makes up difference and number is pure accident, pure show, pure constitution. Every production, of whatever kind, is an alteration, but the substance remains always the same, because it is only one, one divine immortal being.
