unapi

In this paper we give a detailed account of Boscovich's geometrical principle of continuity. We also compare his ideas with those of his forerunners and successors, in order to cast some light on his possible sources of inspiration and to underline the elements of novelty in his approach to the subject. Sommario In questo lavoro si presenta in modo dettagliato il principio di continuità geometrica di Boscovich.
