Chapter Summary

It is very likely that Joseph de Maistre would not have been very much interested in the subject of the reception of his own thought in Italy. Maistre was and always remained quite sceptical about the efficacy, solidity, and durability of the restoration plan conceived at the Congress of Vienna; in this respect he was always of a divided and contradictory inner disposition. Maistres name recurs in Croces writings. The question of whether elements of Maistres thought could have influenced Italian historicism has been legitimately raised. This question has been particularly discussed by Fisichella, in his 1993 volume mentioned above, with arguments that can be hardly disputed. In his very precise analysis, Fisichella basically distinguishes three interpretative lines regarding the problem of the alleged relation between Maistre and historicism.
