Abstract

In his work Dialogo sopra la sfera del mondo, Nikola Nalješković understands mathematics in the Aristotelian tradition, whereas Miho Monaldi accepts Plato’s point of view in the work Irene overo della
belleza. Platonic interpretation of mathematics in late-sixteenth-century Dubrovnik indicates a tendency toward new mathematical and natural philosophies.
