Abstract

The present French translation, edited by André Tiran and his collaborators, is published by Garnier in the collection Écrits sur l’économie, which “attempts to re-actualise the major texts of economic science from the 14th to the 20th century. The publication consists of scientific editions, bilingual where necessary, alongside a system of notes and introductions essential for their contextualisation”. The task has been brilliantly accomplished. Indeed, we have here not just a translation, but a fascinating journey in the Italian history and culture of the xviii century. The French edition of the Meditazioni is a very fine piece of work,not to miss by scholars, but also by people interested in history of (not only economic) ideas. A difficult challenge has been won: to provide a fundamental tool for scientific research; and,at the same time,to create a lively book,which can fascinate also cultivated, non- specialist readers. The merit must be shared between the great Pietro Verri and the research group who, with courage and passion, have edited the text.
