"A unified and well-balanced presentation of the philosophical developments of an era that today's textbooks still largely ignore."--Choice

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).
