Abstract:

The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy offers a balanced and comprehensive account of philosophical thought from the middle of the fourteenth century to the emergence of modern philosophy at the turn of the seventeenth century. The Renaissance has, of course, attracted much scholarly attention for over a century, but the philosophy of the period was, to begin with, relatively neglected, and this is the first volume in English to synthesise for a wider readership that substantial and sophisticated research now available. The Renaissance was, in fact, a time of intense, varied and in may ways distinctive philosophical activity which deserves to be at least as well known as the philosophy of the Middle Ages.
