Italian Renaissance thought has been gaining ever-increasing recognition as seminal to the thought of the whole Renaissance period, affecting in many subtle ways the development and understanding of artistic, literary, scientific, and religious movements. The importance, then, of this detailed and careful survey of Italy's leading Renaissance philosophers and the intricate philosophical problems of the time can scarcely be exaggerated.Based upon the 1961 Arensberg Lectures, given at Stanford University, this collection of essays offers a genuinely unified interpretation of Italian Renaissance thought by describing and evaluating the philosophies of eight pivotal figures: Petrarch, Valla, Ficino, Pico, Pomponazzi, Telesio, Patrizi, and Bruno. The essays not only discuss the life, writings, and main ideas of these eight thinkers, but also establish through a connective text, the place each of them occupies in the general intellectual development of the Italian Renaissance.… (more)

OCHO FILÓSOFOS DEL RENACIMIENTO ITALIANO

Nunca se ha puesto en duda la influencia total del
Renacimiento sobre la cultura occidental. No obstante,
en el aspecto puramente filosófico existen
confusiones y faltas de atención. Hay razones para ello:
faltan la unidad y la densidad que impresionan en las
grandes estructuras del pensamiento
medieval o en los sistemas del siglo XVII. Sin
embargo, el tránsito de aquéllas a éstos es incom-
prensible sin el periodo de fermentación en que se
desplegó la filosofía renacentista, asimilando recursos
nuevos, adelantando nuevas ideas y ensayando
combinaciones nuevas de ideas antiguas. En lo
tocante a fuentes y estilo, terminología y proble-
mas, si no métodos o soluciones, el Renacimiento
preludia la filosofía moderna.

En este Breviario, P. O. Kristeller analiza el
pensamiento filosófico de ocho figuras renacentistas
de Petrarca a Giordano Bruno, pasando por el influyente
platonismo de Ficino, la gran aventura
trunca de Pico, el interesante sistema natural de
Telesio, es posible seguir el cauce de los nuevos modos
de reflexión, en su continuidad y en sus limitaciones.
Un apéndice acerca de los antecedentes
del humanismo complementa con oportunidad el
conjunto.
