Giovanni Pico, Gersonides, Yohanan Alemanno, ultimate felicitas, mors osculi, věčná blaženost, polibek smrti
The paper deals with G. Pico della Mirandolaʼs concept of felicitas (mors osculi), which is expressed especially in his works Commento (1486), Conclusiones (1486) and Heptaplus (1489). The analysis of these texts is compared to the ultimate felicitas of two Jewish thinkers, Gersonides (1288–1344), a representative of Medieval philosophical tradition, contemplating conjunction with God himself in his Commentary on the Song of Songs, and Yohanan Alemanno (1435 — died after 1504). This Italian Jewish humanist philosopher presented a similar concept of approach to God like Pico in his works (e.g. Cheshek Shlomo and Hay ha-ʽOlamin).
