Modernity within the past due eighteenth century reworked all domain names of eu existence -intellectual, business, and social. now not least affected used to be the event of time itself: ever-accelerating swap left individuals with briefer periods of time within which to collect new stories and adapt. during this provocative and erudite booklet Reinhart Koselleck, a extraordinary thinker of historical past, explores the concept that of ancient time by means of posing the query: what sort of adventure is unfolded via the emergence of modernity?

The grants of modernity -freedom, development, limitless human development -produced a global accelerating towards an unknown and unknowable destiny in which awaited the potential of reaching utopian success. background, Koselleck asserts, emerged during this the most important second as a brand new temporality delivering incredibly new methods of assimilating adventure. within the current context of globalization and its ensuing crises, the trendy international once more faces a problem in aligning the event of previous and current.

53 Biondo adduce una prova numismatica per dimostrare che l’avvento dei Goti non causò alcuna rottura. Teoderico e i suoi successori, infatti, per nulla interessati a farsi rappresentare sulle monete, avrebbero adottato l’antico signum dei Romani: E contra vero Ostrogothi aeque ac cives Romani Latinis delectati litteris nullam in illis barbariem effuderunt. Nam Theodericus rex primus Latine et Graece doctus, Amalasiuntha eius filia doctior et Theodatus rex tertius et primi nepos doctissimus fuere; quod Longobardorum vel regum vel principum virorum nemini contigit.

Scipionem; aetatis illius ista fuit laus tamquam innocentiae sic Latine loquendi (nec omnium tamen, nam illorum aequales Caecilium et Pacuvium male locutos videmus); sed omnes tum fere, qui nec extra urbem hanc vixerant neque eos aliqua barbaries domestica infuscaverat, recte loquebantur. Sed hanc certe rem deteriorem vetustas fecit et Romae et in Graecia. Confluxerunt enim et Athenas et in hanc urbem multi inquinate loquentes ex diversis locis. 41 Sarà quindi chiaro a questo punto che proprio da tale passo del Brutus, citato nel De verbis solo in maniera parziale, Biondo ricava l’informazione che nell’Antichità il trasferimento di un certo numero di inquinate loquentes causò un imbarbarimento linguistico.
