  • Title: Retorica amorosa e verità in Dante: il "De Causis" e l'idea della donna nel "Convivio" [Dante's loves, especially Beatrice, have been interpreted as representing philosophy; use of female abstractions is clearest in the "Convivio," which was influenced by the Pseudo-Aristotelian "Liber de Causis" with its Neoplatonic themes; the superior intelligences mentioned in the book were feminine, as was the world soul, giving Dante a philosophical context for his feelings of love; despite these feminine abstractions, actual women were conceded no such dignity].
