  • Leonardo, Descartes, Max Weber (Routledge Revivals)by Karl Jaspers

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 44.93

    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...

  • On Real Relationby Francis Suarez; John P Doyle

    Marquette University Press 2006; US$ 45.00

    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...

  • Suárezby José Pereira

    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...

  • Pietro Pomponazzi entre traditions et innovationsby Joel Biard; Thierry Gontier

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 158.00

    Ce volume se propose d’évaluer la place de Pomponazzi dans la philosophie de la Renaissance, à la fois son ancrage dans des traditions médiévales et sa force d’innovation. A côté de contributions sur le De immortalitate animae (1516), ses antécédents, les débats qu’il a suscités, le volume comprend aussi des interventions sur d’autres questions de... more...

  • Gedanken als Wirkursachenby Michael Renemann

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2010; US$ 158.00

    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...

  • Tommaso Campanellaby Germana Ernst

    Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 137.04

    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...

  • Suárez’s Metaphysics in Its Historical and Systematic Contextby Lukáš Novák

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 168.00

    The series provides a forum for the growing community of philosophers who are interested in applying insights drawn from the Aristotelian and Scholastic traditions to current philosophical debates. more...

  • Renaissance Humanismby Margaret L. King

    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...

  • On the Dignity of Manby Pico della Mirandola; Charles Glenn Wallis; Paul J. W. Miller; Douglas Carmichael

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1998; US$ 10.95

    Reflecting the broad range of interests of a major Renaissance philosopher and his distinctive brand of syncretism, this anthology offers in their entirety three central works of Pico's. On the Dignity of Man , the quintessential expression of Renaissance humanism, appears in the context of two lesser known but equally representative mature works:... more...

  • Montaignes Erschließung der Grundlagen des Rechtsby Jens Petersen

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 98.00

    Indem Montaigne die Jurisprudenz von Grund auf anzweifelte, hat er ihr zugleich die Grundlagen des Rechts in einer spezifisch neuzeitlichen Weise erschlossen. Das Buch versucht zu zeigen, dass Montaignes Zweifel am Naturrecht und der juristischen Methode nicht nur zu einem neuen Verständnis der Rechtsphilosophie führte, sondern auch die... more...
