Shall we not travel where the light is not bright and focus not precise? The disciplines of the modern university have a pragmatic base but also correspond to the rooms where the bright light is on, where light travels in straight lines Opere. si forte ponatur in medio. vol. fol , source: Cities were growing larger and people were no longer defining themselves by their family or occupation into which they were born, rather they were thinking of themselves as individuals with the God-given power to shape their destiny.... [tags: European Renaissance Essays] The European Renaissance - After the great advances of what is now ancient Greece and Rome, also known as the “classics”; Europe fell into a period of darkness Renaissance Humanists promoted human worth and individual dignity, and believed in the practice of the liberal arts for all classes. Such Renaissance thinkers as the Italian poet Francesco Petrarch (1304 - 1374), the Dutch theologian Erasmus, the English philosopher Sir Thomas More, the French writer Francois Rabelais (c. 1494 - 1553), and the Italian scholar Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463 -1 494) can all be considered early Humanists The Renaissance is also a period of unparalleled European contacts with non-European civilizations – from the powerful Islamic world of the Near East and North Africa to the great pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas, from the uncharted forests of equatorial Africa to the exotic lands of the Indian subcontinent and the Far East nothing seemed too distant or too inaccessible for the European mind or merchant ref.: Natural law, he argues, is on the same level as truths of mathematics insofar as the denial of the laws of nature would be contradictory. In the same way that the statement 1=1=3 is inherently contradictory, so too would be a claim that �stealing is morally acceptable.� Reason itself, he argues, contains a clear standard of moral rightness, and certain actions are unquestionably evil when �compared with the nature of a reasonable being� (ibid) , cited:

In transalpine Europe the humanistic movement became blended with other tendencies. In Italy it had been an almost exclusive devotion to Greek and Latin letters and learning; but in the North there was added to this enthusiasm for classical culture an equal and indeed supreme interest in Hebrew and Christian antiquity. Hence here the literary and intellectual revival became, in the profoundest sense, the moving cause of the great religious revolution known as the Reformation, and it is in connection with the beginnings of that movement that we shall find a place to speak of the humanists of Germany and the other northern lands What Voltaire had fought and won such as culture, freedom of spirit, the dignity of humanity and justice have become some of the essential elements of our natural everyday life today." The award for the prizewinning essay is $10,000. Winning essays will be published in Oxford Studies in Early Modern Philosophy. Submitted essays must present original research in the history of early modern philosophy, interpreted broadly as the period that begins roughly with Descartes and his contemporaries and ends with Kant It is the latter gates (of which Michelangelo said they were so beautiful that they will do well for the Gates of Paradise) that show the triumphal progress of the Renaissance art during these years. The masters of this period were Ghiberti, Brunelleschi, and Donatello, with the other artists of the epoch being guided more or less by their work. Ghiberti, like so many of the Renaissance artists, had been trained as a goldsmith, a fact reflected by the high finish of his art, and his great attention to detail , source: Metaphysics, in making this illegitimate application, falls into error and illusion which as distinguished from ordinary sensory illusion, Kant calls transcendental illusion. Principles applied within the confines of ordinary experience are immanent: those which transcend these limits are transcendent principles or concepts of reason, or ideas , source:

H., ed., with the assistance of Mark Goldie While modern art is based on elegance and simplicity, post-modern art is considered elaborate and decorative. When modern philosophy is based on effect and cause, post-modern philosophy is based on chance only ref.: Modern scientific knowledge differs from that of antiquity and the Middle Ages in three important respects: the multiplication of sciences; their independent value; the divergence between common knowledge and scientific knowledge. In the Middle Ages astronomy was closely akin to astrology, chemistry to alchemy, physics to divination; modern science has severely excluded all these fantastic connections Failing that, one surrenders to folly--historically determined constraints and personal circumstances. For most folks, the fallability of human knowledge requires accepting social conventions, common beliefs, as the necessary delusions for collective life. For others, at exceptional times, awareness of this fallibility leads to rejection of conventional wisdom in favor of a quest for spiritual transcendence , source: Denied a much prized chair in ethics by the Aristotelians in Heidelberg and a teaching position at the Geneva Academy by Beza on account of his antipathy to Aristotle.
