Summary/Abstract: Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600) is regarded as the principal representative of the infinite and homogenous universe. Bruno has a modern rational mind by no means. However, his doctrine has so deeply influenced the reconstruction of a modern understanding of the material of universe and human body. His process of rebuilding the cosmology and humanity consists in learning the individual’s psychical condition and the relations between society and man. The links between the components of the brunian organic universe can be generated spontaneously from “love-Eros” for the mundane life of its infinite expansion. And in his organic universe, Bruno considers and desires all beings to be alive, all to be animated.And from this doctrine, his predilection for the magic is derived, which is based precisely on the presupposition of a universal “panpsychism” aiming to take possession of the natural world with artifices.
