About the Authors
  • The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy, published in 1988, offers a balanced and comprehensive account of philosophical thought from the middle of the fourteenth century to the emergence of modern philosophy. This was the first volume in English to synthesise for a wider audience the substantial and sophisticated research now available. The volume is organised by branch of philosophy rather than by individual philosopher or school, and the intention has been to present the internal development of different aspects of the subject in their own historical context. The structure also naturally emphasises the international nature of philosophy in the Renaissance.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The appearance of the present volume will be warmly welcomed not only by historians of philosophy, but by all those engaged in any branch of Renaissance intellectual history, including the history of science and of religion. Doubtless, it will serve as a standard work of reference for many years to come.' English Historical Review

    'On the basis of the soundness of the general editors' overall plan and the strength of his main contributors the Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy is an outstanding success.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
