A cegueira elegante: Mino Bergamo intérprete de Fénelon

Translated title of the contribution: The elegant blindness: Mino Bergamo interpreter of Fenelon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



In the early nineties of the twentieth century, Mino Bergamo formulated a set of, elegant but inadequate, comments about Francois Fenelon's opinions regarding the structure of the human soul and how, through this same soul, the human being is united with God. This present study, wishing to be a rectification of those remarks, begins with the presentation of Fenelon's thought about the human soul, entering, afterwards, in the assessment of what truly this greatest author of "pur amour" adduces about those themes.
