Renaissance Thought by Robert Black

Book Description

Renaissance Thought is a fascinating collection of essays on the Renaissance, focusing on humanism and thought. The concept of the Renaissance has always been challenging to define and this book enables a deeper understanding of the essential features of the Renaissance and humanism. Knowledge of Renaissance thought illuminates other key aspects of Renaissance culture such as philology, political thought and scholastic and platonic philosophy. Renaissance Thought explores all the important themes and influential figures including: * humanism and scholasticism * the scholarship of Politician * printers and readers in Italy * Ptolemy of Lucca * Petrarch * Florentine constitutionalism and Medici ascendancy * the humanist challenge to medieval German culture. This collection of articles is essential reading for students of the Renaissance. The book will allow readers to contribute to the debate on the Renaissance, a theme which has never ceased to stimulate intellectual interest since the earliest days of the Renaissance itself.
