Eight Philosophers of the Italian Renaissance (häftad)

Eight Philosophers of the Italian Renaissance

Häftad Engelska, 1964-06-01

Slutsåld

Italian Renaissance thought has been gaining ever-increasing recognition as seminal to the thought of the whole Renaissance period, affecting in many subtle ways the development and understanding of artistic, literary, scientific, and religious movements. The importance, then, of this detailed and careful survey of Italy's leading Renaissance philosophers and the intricate philosophical problems of the time can scarcely be exaggerated.Based upon the 1961 Arensberg Lectures, given at Stanford University, this collection of essays offers a genuinely unified interpretation of Italian Renaissance thought by describing and evaluating the philosophies of eight pivotal figures: Petrarch, Valla, Ficino, Pico, Pomponazzi, Telesio, Patrizi, and Bruno. The essays not only discuss the life, writings, and main ideas of these eight thinkers, but also establish through a connective text, the place each of them occupies in the general intellectual development of the Italian Renaissance.

"The excellent, and, I believe, quite original plan of starting a book on Renaissance philosophy with Petrarch and Valla enables Professor Kristeller to expound with admirable lucidity that interpretation of the meaning of the much abused term 'Renaissance humanism' of which he himself has laid the foundations by brilliant research... the selection of the eight philosophers brings out admirably the complexity of the Renaissance with its many different strands... A very useful and lucid book which is sure to be popular both with students and with the general reader." -Frances Yates ,The New York Review of Books "Thought admittedly restricted in character, this volume is a superb example of Professor Kristeller's great scholarship and learning. He clearly delineates each of his subjects, and at the same time conveys a sense of continuity, which unites such men as Petrarch and Bruno who are historically separated by some two hundred years... Will be an attractive and useful addition to the library of the student as well as the scholar of the Renaissance." Cithara "A lucid treatment of the writings of eight Italian philosophers from the fourteenth through the sixteenth century." The American Historical Review
