$52.99

Paperback
This text on Renaissance thought covers topics including* the soul; the cosmos; Renaissance humanism; Platonism; magic and occult philosophy; Erasmus; Renaissance ideas of education; anthropology; scepticism; methods; and mechanical philosophy.

- Publisher Renaissance Thought* An Introduction outlines the continuities and innovations in Western European thought from c. 1350-1600. The characteristic currents of Renaissance thought, notably humanism, Platonism and scepticism, aspired to remedy the shortcomings of scholastic ethics and theology and the Aristotelian principles they enshrined. Their success in these respects was limited, indeed they sometimes exacerbated the difficulties they were meant to resolve. Nevertheless the new ideas and approaches that they encouraged proved decisive for the development of natural philosophy and European thought generally. The book draws on well-known sources - Petrarch, Leonardo Bruni, Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, Erasmus, Machiavelli, Copernicus, Montaigne, Bruno, Kepler, Galileo, among others - as well as many lesser known ones.
