Renaissance Essays II

Edited by William Connell and William J. Connell

  • Description
A second collection of essays on renaissance themes from JHI.
In the twenty-five years that have elapsed since the first publication of Kristeller and Wiener's classic Renaissance Essays (now reissued as LHI IX), different approaches to renaissance philosophy and ideas have been adopted. This newvolume presents a broadly-based selection of material concerned with the renaissance, collected from contributions to the Journal of the History of Ideasover the past twenty-five years. Contributors examine the work of contemporary writers and philosophers for their special contributions to renaissance ideas, and Machiavelli, absent from the first collection, features directly in three studies. A definition of `humanism' is attempted, and other disciplines of painting, music, science, medical narrative and historiography are explored. Contributors: ROBERT BLACK, MARCIA L. COLISH, STILLMAN DRAKE, MARTIN FLEISHER, VITO R. GIUSTINIANI, SARAH STEVER GRAVELLE, ROBERT HARIMAN, JOHN M. HEADLEY, DONALD R. KELLEY, JOHN B. MONFASANI, MARKPHILLIPS, ZACHARY S. SCHIFFMAN, CHARLES B. SCHMITT, JERROLD SEIGAL, NANCY G. SIRAISI, RICHARD WASWO, CARROLL W. WESTFALL.
