Gioberti, Vincenzo (L)

giobertiVincenzo Gioberti (1801-1852) was born in Italy and although an ordained priest, he was better known as a philosopher and a politician.

Vidal-Naquet[0580.82] informs us that Gioberti presented “his native land both as the heir to Atlantis and as the fount of ancient wisdom”*[in his 1843 book, Del primato morale e civile degli Italiani[1322].]*

Boulanger, Nicolas-Antoine (L)

BoullangerNicolas-Antoine Boulanger (1722-1759) was a French philosopher who concerned himself greatly with antiquity. He was convinced that prehistory of the globe was a record of a succession of floods, which subsequently led to the appearance of charismatic leaders such as Moses. His ideas followed from a study of the Bible and Plato.

Although Boulanger was thought not to have referred to Atlantis, Vidal-Naquet informs us[0580.91] that a little-known manuscript by Boulanger, now in the Museé de Paris, does contain Atlantis references and was heavily plagiarised by Buffon.
