Classical Traditions in Renaissance Philosophy
Ashgate Variorum, 2002 - Philosophy - 340 pages
Considering the impact of classical thought on Renaissance philosophy, in the first part of this volume Dr Kraye addresses the interpretations of ancient philosophy put forward by various thinkers of the Italian Renaissance, including the humanist Angelo Poliziano and the Platonist Marsilio Ficino. In the second, she examines the central role of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics within Renaissance moral philosophy and considers the influence of other classical treatises on ethics, especially the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. The final section explores controversies concerning the authenticity of works in the Aristotelian canon, together with the early printing history of Aristotle. All the articles locate philosophical questions within the historical and cultural context of the Renaissance. Particular attention is paid to the importance of philological scholarship within philosophical debates. The collection includes an essay on Philipp Melanchthon's ethical commentaries and textbooks, previously only available in German translation.
