- Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2014; US$ 16.95
By far the best collection of sources to introduce readers to Renaissance humanism in all its many guises. What distinguishes this stimulating and useful anthology is the vision behind it: King shows that Renaissance thinkers had a lot to say, not only about the ancient world--one of their habitual passions--but also about the self, how civic experience... more...

First published in 1965, this collection of three essays by influential German philosopher Karl Jaspers deals with the response of the philosophical mind to the world of reality, with the search for truth. In Leonardo, this search is shown in the thinking and the works of a supreme artist whose means of apperception are the senses. The essay on Max... more...

Relation is at the heart of any philosophy but especially of Aristotelian philosophy. It is also at the heart of theological understanding of the central Christian doctrine of the Trinity of Persons in God. Arguably the greatest, and certainly the most influential, Jesuit philosopher-theologian of all time, Francisco Suarez (1548-1617), would by any... more...
- Marquette University Press 2007; US$ 37.00
Francisco Suarez (1548-1617) is one of the great anomalies in the history of thought: one thinker functioning in two contrary roles, each reversing the other. The role of being, on the one hand, the consummator of one phase of philosophical speculation, the realist and Scholastic; and, on the other, the initiator (though an unwitting one) of another... more...

Francisco Suárez (1548?1617) sieht es als Problem an, dass nach dem traditionellen Modell der Kunstproduktion der Gedanke immer nur als Vorkonzeption und damit auf sehr vermittelte Weise in das Kunstwerk eingeht. Entsprechend wäre auch die Analyse von geistigen Hervorbringungen immer ein Prozess, bei dem die Gedanken als etwas hinter dem Gesagten Liegendes... more...

The articles in this anthology examine cultures of competition in visual-art and literary depictions and in socio-cultural practices in the period from 1450 to 1620. The main focus is on aspects that transcend the humanistic ?core area? of Latin text production and the paragon discussions in the visual arts. By taking this perspective,... more...

A friend of Galileo and author of the renowned utopia The City of the Sun, Tommaso Campanella is one of the most thinkers of the early modern period. Here is a comprehensive intellectual biography of this important and complex philosopher of the Renaissance. more...

Although the importance of Francisco Suárez has been generally recognized, the wider context of his thought remains largely unexplored. This collection of papers, aimed at putting his philosophy into context, will be of value not just to Suárez scholars, but to anyone interested in the intricacies of metaphysical thought at the verge of... more...
