Inside This Book

First Sentence
During the Renaissance, people taught and learned philosophy with a reverence for authority that the modern reader may find misplaced or alien, but not because philosophers simply aped their predecessors or put no premium at all on original thought or novel solutions to old problems. Read the first page

Comprehensive and interesting 3 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
What could I say more than what is said by the great Paul Kristeller in his flattering preface to this work? This is what, in my sense, seems specially remarkable: the authors (whose names deservs no comments)produced a very comprehensive introduction to philosophy of Renaissance, particularly sensible to the huge differences among the trends that people what covers this historical period. Avoiding the trap of encompassing all the philosophical productions homogeneously, they arrive serveral times to point to particular topics of real philosophical interest (as, for example, when pointing to the skeptical context created by the conflict of authorities rediscovered from antiquity, or when commenting about contemporary relevance of Renaissance philosophy, in the last chapter, the only one I think could may still be allonged).
