A propos de ce titre
This book is a treasure house of Italian philosophy. Narrating and explaining the history of Italian philosophers from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, the author identifies the specificity, peculiarity, originality, and novelty of Italian philosophical thought in the men and women of the Renaissance. The vast intellectual output of the Renaissance can be traced back to a single philosophical stream beginning in Florence and fed by numerous converging human factors. This work offers historians and philosophers a vast survey and penetrating analysis of an intellectual tradition which has heretofore remained virtually unknown to the Anglophonic world of scholarship.
Italy's greatest historian of Renaissance culture, and at the same time its foremost living philosopher...

... Garin reinvented Humanism. Armando Torno in Corriere Della Sera, 30 December 2004
With his studies on the Renaissance, against the too many immanentist and antireligious oversimplifications that considered the Age of the Renaissance as a pure and simple reversed manifestation of the medieval religiosity, Garin saw and taught the continuity between the origin of the Modern Age, and of Science itself, and the inheritance of the late Middle Ages. Gianna Vattimo in La Stampa, 30 December 2004
In opposition to Paul Oskar Kristeller, Garin did not see in Humanism a mere literary and philological event, but a movement endowed with a true and peculiar philosophy, different from the one based on summulae and logic of the Schools, and characterized instead by its new interest in the historical. Moral, and scientific disciplines.
Il Tempo, 30 December 2004
Eugenio Garin (9 May 1909 - 29 December 2004) was born in Rieti in the region of Lazio from a family, Savoyard in origin, which moved to Florence after the Unification of Italy. In Florence, Eugenio studied and graduated with a degree in moral philosophy in 1929. From his first teaching experiences in various public schools, he passed to the University of Cagliari for a short period and return to Florence in 1949 as professor of history of philosophy, in which function he continued until 1974. Before retiring in 1984, he taught at the Scuola Normale of Pisa. Garin s output of books and articles was prodigious and much of it is still in print. Works translated into English include Italian Humanism, Philosophy and Civic Life in the Renaissance (1965), Science and Civic Life in the Italian Renaissance (1969), Portraits from the Quattrocento (1972), and Astrology in the Renaissance (1983). Garin s fame as scholar was both national and international and brought him many honors that included the Renaissance Society of America s Paul Oskar Kristeller Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 and, in 2003, the National Award of the President of the Italian Republic awarded by the Academy of Lincei, to which he had been elected in 1965. He was also a corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, whose Serena medal he was awarded in 1975, and of the Royal Historical Society. On 30 December 2004, all major Italian news dailies honored Garin: The humanist of the 20th century.... One of the greatest scholars of the century (Vittorio Mathieu, Il Giornale); He reinvented Humanism.
