Chapter Summary

The publication of the De anima et vita in Basel in 1538 seems to mark the philosophical highpoint of an intellectual life that was on the whole rather brief in duration but at the same time immensely productive. The De anima et vita is composed of three books, each of which is divided into chapters or paragraphs distinguished by a title. At the beginning of each of these three books a chapter or paragraph without title serves as a proemium to each book. The whole work is preceded by a preface, a dedication to Francisco, Duke of Béjar, which offers some suggestions and a possible interpretive approach to the text. The prologue to the first book of the De anima et vita acts as a synthetic point of departure of the discourse.
