Medieval and Renaissance Speculations

(p.103) 5 The Ascent of Infinite Space
The Fate of Place

Edward S. Casey

University of California Press

This chapter examines medieval and Renaissance theories of place and space. It argues that the critical turning point in the debate between space and place occurred during the sixteenth century. A powerful sense of something genuinely new emerged in the uninhibited speculations of Cusa and Bruno, as well as in the more cautious ruminations of Patrizi and the imaginative ideas of Campanella, who held that space is capable of feeling and sensing.

Keywords:   place, space, Cusa, Bruno, Patrizi, Campanella
