About the Author

Ugo Spirito, born in Arezzo (Tuscany) in 1896, received his BaccalaureateDegrees in Law in 1918 and Philosophy in 1920. In 1932, he was named professor of Corporative Studies at the University of Pisa. In 1935, because of his doctrine of "corporative ownership" which was considered heretic by the fascist regime, he was sent into exile at the University of Messina, where he taught philosophy. He went to teach at the University of Genoa the following year. After World War II he taught philosophy at the University of Rome until retirement. Spirito was the director of the Enciclopedia Italiana (Italian Encyclopedia) for philosophy, economics, and law until 1933. With Arnaldo Volpicelli, he directed the journal Nuovi studi di diritto, economia e politica from 1927 to 1935. After World War II he edited Storia antologica dei problemi filosofici (History Anthology of Philosophical Problems) in eight volumes and I Classici della filosofra (Classics of Philosophy) for the Sansoni Publishing House. He was a honorary member of the Academy of Lincei and president of the Giovanni Gentile Foundation for philosophical studies. Ugo Spirito died in 1979.
