Sample text

The Declamatio de vero philosopho et philosophiae origine ac partitione, by Johannes Reusch (Reuschius: d. 1543), a physician and humanist, with connections to Reuchlin and the more militant German tendencies within the humanist movement), was published in Leipzig in 151S. It appears to have greater awareness and a surer sense of orientation at both a critical and theoretical level. It is an apologia for the 'humanistic' mission of the philosopher, and attempts to link the history of art and literatuIe to the history of learning and rational intellectual research.

But at this point it becomes clear that the idea of such a function for philosophy has been deduced, at least in part, from the efforts made by Marsilio Ficino and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, through the activity of the so-called Platonic Academy of Florence, to give a unified philosophical vision to the different tendencies of human thought. Introduction 2. 'PRISCA THEOLOGIA' AND 'PERENNIS PHILOSOPHIA' The contribution of Italian humanism to philosophical historiography that is, the 'historicization' of earlier periods of philosophical activity - was assimilated into many philosophical currents and cultural trends between the end of the fifteenth century and the beginning of the sixteenth.

Here, then, is the regular scheme followed in every chapter (coming in each case after the Introduction) : I. Number corresponding to the position of each author within the chapter I. I. 2. 3. I. 2. 3. 5. 6. Bibliography of works on the author Stanley and Hornius represent two fixed points towards the middle of the seventeenth century, two points of arrival, of maturity and consolidation of the historia philosophica. Stanley acknowledges his affinity to Bacon and Montaigne, to the encyclopaedic vision and to the ethical humanist vision.
