Book I; 2.9-2.18 on Book II; 2.19 on Book III; 2.20 on Book IV; 2.21-2.22 on

The consecutive Book discussion allows for consideration of the connec-
tion and relationship between successive Books, and thus helps to shed light
on Vico’s movement of thought that is usually not made explicit by him, as
well as providing opportunities of indirectly showing connections between
certain Books by cross-references.
The present book thus means to add another heuristic approach by find-
ing or bringing to the fore, correspondences and complementarities between
distantly located material in the work.
