He was a profoundly admired figure in his time but has subsequently been somewhat undervalued by historians. Garin seeks to redress this evaluation because he sees in the difference between Salutati’s attitude to the humane studies and to science, one of the most important influences that led to the later divorce between naturalism, as favored by Pico, Bruno, Telesio and others, and the emphasis on the study of rhetoric, as promoted by whole schools of scholars, and, much later, by Vico. Their emphasis on the polis led this group of humanists to oppose any form of asceticism and hence rendered them hostile to monasticism, though not to religion itself, but in this hostility they were not joined by Petrarch, for whom the monastic life simply paralleled the problems of the individual in a communal setting.

The celebration of philosophy and science from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries until the time of Galileo underlined the moment of hegemony of Italian culture in Europe. It was the moment in which the economic and political situation of the Italian states went into crisis, but after a period of flourishing that allowed the maturation of a great “national” thought. ” Its recurring themes, not by chance, were the trials of Bruno, Galileo, and Campanella (and perhaps even of Savonarola), which were almost taken as the symbols of the split between culture and the Church of Rome.

The Italian philosophy of the past is regrettably often absent from Spaventa’s pages, which are all enlightened by genial insights, and though unfaithful, they are all beautiful. With all his excesses, Spaventa provoked many researches. We should mention an erudite thinker as Fiorentino, who could arrive to pedantic details, and was a faithful editor of texts. At the same time, he was an acute inquirer, whose studies on the fifteenth century, on Pomponazzi, Telesio, and the Telesian School, and its influences constitute an essential point of departure.
