Antonio Bernardi was a leading figure of the multifaceted community of the Renaissance Aristotelian humanists. Having entered the court of Pope Paul III Farnese, he enjoyed substantial freedom of expression, which he used to full effect in expounding publicly his distinctive interpretations of Aristotle’s texts. Although he was the first Italian writer to mention Peter Ramus, he tenaciously advocated the excellence of Aristotelian doctrines, though rejecting at the same time the entire history of the interpretation of the Stagirite’s thought.
