This book explores the parallels between the Renaissance during the 14th to 16th centuries and the upheavals in human and physical sciences in the 21st Century that herald an insurgent entrepreneurial renaissance.The first Renaissance, conceived and
When does Renaissance philosophy end, and Early Modern philosophy begin? Do Renaissance philosophers have something in common, which distinguishes them from Early Modern philosophers? And ultimately, what defines the modernity of the Early Modern period, and what role did the Renaissance play in shaping it? The answers to these questions are not just chronological. This book challenges traditional constructions of these periods, which partly reflect the prejudice that the Renaissance was a literary and artistic phenomenon, rather than a philosophical phase. The essays in this book investigate how the legacy of Renaissance philosophers persisted in the following centuries through the direct encounters of subsequent generations with Renaissance philosophical texts. This volume treats Early Modern philosophers as joining their predecessors as conversation partners: the conversations in this book feature, among others, Girolamo Cardano and Henry More, Thomas Hobbes and Lorenzo Valla, Bernardino Telesio and Francis Bacon, René Descartes and Tommaso Campanella, Giulio Cesare Vanini and the anonymous Theophrastus redivivus. Cecilia Muratori received her PhD in the History of Philosophy from the universities of Jena and Urbino. Her revised dissertation was published in 2012 with the title Il primo filosofo tedesco. Il misticismo di Jakob Böhme nellinterpretazione hegeliana (to be published in English for Springer). From 2009 to 2013 she was Research Fellow at LMU Munich, working on a project entitled The Debate on the Soul of Animals in Renaissance Philosophy. In addition to several articles, two edited collections stem from this research: Ethical Perspectives on Animals in the Renaissance and Early Modern Period (ed. with Burkhard Dohm, Micrologus Library 2013) and The Animal Soul and the Human Mind: Renaissance Debates (Bruniana & Campanelliana 2013). She is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Italian Department at the University of Warwick. Gianni Paganini is Full Professor of History of Philosophy at the Università del Piemonte Orientale Amedeo Avogadro. He has won the prestigious Prize of the Accademia dei Lincei for Philosophy (awarded every ten years for the whole of the scholarly production over the past decade). For his most recent monograph, entitled Skepsis. Le débat des modernes sur le scepticisme, he was awarded the PRIX La Bruyère 2009 pour la littérature et la philosophie, médaille dargent, de lAcadémie Française. His monographs and studies in the history of modern philosophy, with particular focus on the sceptical tradition and libertine culture, have been accompanied by the publication of several editions of texts (notably of the anonymous Theophrastus redivivus, of Hobbes De motu, loco et tempore, and of Humes Dialogues, with Italian translation). He is a member of international advisory boards (such as International Archives of the History of Ideas, Bruniana&Campanelliana and La Lettre Clandestine).
The effects of the Italian Renaissance are still with us today, from the incomparable paintings of Leonardo da Vinci to the immortal writings of Petrarch and Machiavelli. But why was there such an artistic, cultural, and intellectual explosion in Italy at the start of the 14th century? Why did it occur in Italy? And why in certain Italian city-states such as Florence? Professor Bartlett probes these questions and more in 36 dynamic lectures. This is your opportunity to appreciate the results of the Italian Renaissance and gain an understanding of the underlying social, political, and economic forces that made such exceptional art and culture possible. At the heart of Renaissance Italy were the city-states, home to the money, intellect, and talent needed for the growth of Renaissance culture. You´ll look at the Republic of Florence, as well as other city-states that, thanks to geographical and historical circumstances, had much different political and social structures. This course contains a wealth of details that will give you a feel and appreciation for the Italian Renaissance - its contributions to history, the ways it was similar and dissimilar to our times, and how the people of the time, both famous and ordinary, experienced it. You´ll come away surprised by how much of our modern life was made possible by the Renaissance. Our concept of participatory government, our belief in the value of competition, our philosophy of the content and purpose of education, even our notions of love all have roots in the Renaissance period. Its loftiest ideals - the importance of the individual, the value of human dignity and potential, and the promotion of freedom - are ones we embrace as our own.

In all of human history there has never been an era as richly endowed with human creativity as the Italian Renaissance. When the economic boom of the Late Middle Ages had allowed a flourishing and wealthy merchant class to emerge, a plethora of artists, sculptors, architects, and thinkers followed in their wake. In an astonishingly short period of time, Italy was transformed mentally, physically, and spiritually. Powerful commercial centers like Florence, Venice, and Milan became independent. Artists like Michaelangelo and Cellini threw off the customs of the past and forged new symbols of Man, while others, like the gentle aristocrat Baldassare Castiglione, were attempting to civilize the behavior of society with gentlemanly manners. From north to south, Italian cities were literally reborn with an energy and enthusiasm that has never repeated itself anywhere.This great historical essay tells you why this extraordinary event occurred and why it finally died out, though its effects lasted hundreds of years. Ironically, all the great pomp and splendor of the Italian Renaissance was accompanied by some of the worst violence and mayhem that Italy has ever experienced. In the midst of splendor unheard of, men murdered, stole, raped, lied, and cuckolded friend and foe. Horrible torture, brutal war, and poisonous political intrigue went hand in hand with the most sumptuous artistic and literary output in European history. Follow this incredible story to understand the Italian Renaissance in ways you never conceived. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.
