The Companion to Renaissance Philosophy


This is a fine, informative, and engaging treatment of a fascinating subject, and one of the best of the "Cambridge Companion" series that the present reviewer has had the pleasure of perusing...In summary, this treatment of Renaissance philosophy is a fine and engaging one and one that anyone interested in the wide range of subjects it covers will surely welcome. All of the chapters are of quite a high quality, accessible while still being scholarly, and extremely informative."
(Sixteenth Century Journal, Jon Balserak, University of Bristol- England)
