Description - Defenders of the Text by Anthony Grafton

In this presentation of the world of scholarship from the Renaissance to the modern period, Anthony Grafton examines the relation between humanism and science and sets before us such seminal figures as Poliziano, Scaliger, Kepler and Wolf. Grafton demonstrates that humanism was neither a simple nor an impractical enterprise, but worked hand-in-hand with science in developing modern learning.
