Traditional methods such as concordance lists are not able to provide us with a real access to the semantic space of a philosophical text and to its dynamics. In this paper, we will argue that new insights on these points can come from the application of more sophisticated mathematical and computational methods of meaning representation, based on the automatic construction of text-driven word similarity spaces out of the way word distribute and co-occur in texts. More specifically, we report on a current research in which semantic spaces are dynamically built by applying a variation of Latent Semantic Analysis to the Eroici furori by Giordano Bruno, the XVI century Italian philosopher.
