Giambattista Vico in early twentieth-century radical thought

The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact of Giambattista Vico’s New Science on the works of selected left-wing radical thinkers of the first half of the 20th century. The author reconstructs how Vico’s primarily epistemological notion of a human-made history underwenta transformation into an ethical principle in the writings of Kazimierz Kelles-Krauz, Georges Sorel, Stanisław Brzozowski and Edward Abramowski. The main premise of the paper is that the aforementioned thinkers — all of whom were influenced, although differently, by the philosophy of Karl Marx — tried to apply Vico’s thought to a specific practical philosophy.
