Vailati, Giovanni 1863-1909
The author of over books and papers, he was a founder of mathematical logic and set theory, to which he contributed much notation. Giuseppe Peano and his wife Carola Crosio in Portrait of Berkeley by John Smybert , George Edward Moore was an English philosopher. He was, with Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Gottlob Frege, one of the founders of the analytic tradition in philosophy.
Gravestone of philosopher G. Moore and wife Dorothy Moore. Stanford University has many centers and institutes dedicated to the study of various specific topics. Vailati's very individual position within that process helps to account for the long silence about his work, some other reasons being the scattered nature of his publications, the fact that he was in advance of his time, and the intervention of World War I and Italian fascism.
As a historian Vailati dealt chiefly with mechanics, logic, and geometry. He made important contributions to the study of post-Aristotelian Greek mechanics, of Galileo Galilei's forerunners, of definition in Plato and Euclid, of the influence of mathematics on logic and epistemology, and of Gerolamo Saccheri's work in logic and in non-Euclidean geometry. He gave a remarkable representation much more than a translation of Book A of Aristotle's Metaphysics. He was particularly interested in the dialectic of continuity and change, in how "the same" problems are faced and solved in different ways in different periods; which, owing to his constant interest in language, meant that he traced the history of the relations between concepts and terms.
Vailati's work as a historian and as an analytical philosopher were closely interwoven; they are two applications of the same attitudes and methods. He saw the difference between theoretical and historical research not so much in their subject matters as in their approach to their subject matters. Philosophers and scientists, he held, should cooperate in historical research and remember that no history is complete unless the social background of ideas is taken into account.
In science, past results are not "destroyed" by new ones, for new results make old ones even more important in the very process of superseding them. By his awareness of the importance and his command of the methodology of historical research, Vailati avoided the abstract ahistorical atmosphere and the scientifically biased attitude of many logical positivists.
Vailati wrote some early papers in symbolic logic , but he was chiefly interested in the function of logic within philosophy. He attacked confusions between logic and psychology and between logic and epistemology. Vailati's thought cannot be completely evaluated until the hundreds of letters he wrote to Mach, Brentano, Peano, Croce, Volterra, Giovanni Papini, Prezzolini, Giovanni Vacca, and many others, are published. Many concern topics not dealt with in the Scritti. These letters constitute one of the last large scientific correspondences of the eighteenth-century kind.
They will throw new light on the intellectual history of Europe around and possibly establish connections hitherto unnoticed or only suspected. Vailati's manuscripts some still unpublished and many of the letters he received are in the Institute for the History of Philosophy of the State University of Milan. The only almost-complete edition of his papers is the Scritti Florence, , which was followed by two anthologies: Gli strumenti della conoscenza, edited by Mario Calderoni Lanciano, , and Il pragmatismo, edited by Giovanni Papini Lanciano, Il pragmatismo includes a completion of Vailati's notes for a book on pragmatism.
Some of his best essays were first reprinted in Il metodo della filosofia, edited by Ferruccio Rossi-Landi Bari, , and in Scritti di metodologia scientifica e di analisi del linguaggio, edited by M. Sciacca Milan, Complete collections of the philosophical papers and of the correspondence are in preparation. The first contemporary scholar to point out Vailati's importance was Eugenio Garin, in ; see his Cronache di filosofia italiana Bari: Laterza, , Ch.
