I am deeply grateful to the colleagues who have agreed to participate in this project. They have taken precious time from their busy schedules of research and publication in order to contribute to this volume, and my only hope is that they will consider the final result a satisfactory one. I would like to express my gratitude to the Humanities Initiative at New York University for a grant-in-aid to fund part of the expenses associated with the production of this book. I would also like to thank Deike Benjoya for her assistance with the translation from German of chapters 13, 23, and 26. Me and the other contributors to this volume are very thankful to Wendy Keebler for her excellent copy-editing of the text. I am also particularly grateful to two of my students, who have both significantly contributed to the production of this volume. To Marya Fisher for helping with the editing of all the essays translated from German and Italian and for reviewing most of the bibliographies at the ends of the various chapters. To Andrew Ward for assisting with the editing of my introduction and for compiling the final index. To Marya and Andrew I also owe valuable observations about the contents of this volume. I am very grateful to Francesco de Angelis for his comments on a first draft of the introduction; his criticism has been invaluable for improving my arguments. Finally, I would like to express my great gratitude to my wife, Rosalia Pumo, for her inestimable support throughout the project, and to our newborn son Tommaso for filling our lives with immense joy. This volume is dedicated to Salvatore Settis, great mentor during my graduate studies and a constant source of inspiration ever since.
