Language: Italian

Sullo sfondo del recente dibattito storiografico relativo al problematico rapporto tra testi e immagini in Linneo, il volume analizza l’origine, la funzione e il significato dei nomi mitologici greci utilizzati nel Systema Naturae per designare zoofiti (animali-piante) e litofiti (pietre-piante). Un aspetto rilevante e poco noto della fortuna del mito greco, ultimo capitolo di una visione antropocentrica della natura che, nel secolo successivo, Darwin e altri naturalisti hanno definitivamente messo in crisi. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… On the background of the recent historiographical debate concerning the problematic relationship between texts and images in Linnaeus, the volume analyzes the origin, function and meaning of the Greek mythological names used in the "Systema Naturae" to designate zoophytes (animal-plants) and lithophytes (stone-plants). A relevant and little-known aspect of the fortune of the Greek myth, the last chapter of an anthropocentric vision of nature which, in the following century, Darwin and other naturalists definitively put in crisis.]
