  Renaissance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Renaissance is usually considered to have originated in the 14th century in northern Italy and begun in the late 15th century in northern Europe.
The traditional view is that the Renaissance of the 15th century in Italy, spreading through the rest of Europe, represented a reconnection of the west with classical antiquity, the absorption of knowledge—particularly mathematics—from Arabic, the return of experimentalism, the focus on the importance of living well in the present (e.g.
Marxist historians view the Renaissance as a pseudo-revolution with the changes in art, literature, and philosophy affecting only a tiny minority of the very wealthy and powerful while life for the great mass of the European population was unchanged from the Middle Ages.

 Renaissance [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Renaissance is the name of the great intellectual and cultural movement of the revival of interest in classical culture that occurred in the fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries -- a period which saw the transition from the Middle Ages to modern times.
The second period of the Renaissance is marked by a continued zeal for classical study, and by the developmental of a broad learning and the new view of the intellectual life which is now known as Humanism.
In philosophy it gradually replaced the purely formal methods of thought that scholasticism had fostered.

 Medieval Philosophy
Medieval philosophy is conventionally construed as the philosophy of Western Europe between the decline of classical pagan culture and the Renaissance.
Still, it is perhaps most useful not to think of medieval philosophy as defined by the chronological boundaries of its adjacent philosophical periods, but as beginning when thinkers first started to measure their philosophical speculations against the requirements of Christian doctrine and as ending when this was no longer the predominant practice.
While the influence of classical pagan philosophy was crucial for the development of medieval philosophy, it is likewise crucial that until the twelfth and thirteenth centuries almost all the original Greek texts were lost to the Latin West, so that they exerted their influence only indirectly.

Accordingly, his portrait depicts the Renaissance as the proximate historical matrix of the modern era insofar as it characterizes the period in terms of a radical rejection of medieval religiosity, other-worldliness, ascetic morality, and ecclesiastical authority.

Even though Islamic philosophy is of great diversity and richness, it is characterized by certain features that are of special significance for both an understanding of it and for an appraisal of its impact on the world at large.
The impact of Islamic philosophy on the Renaissance was enormous.
The mere fact that Islamic philosophy was able to operate in such a fundamentalist environment greatly effected the Renaissance for it served as an example the thinkers of that time - how to present new, radical ideas without angering religious fundamentalists, who were the church at that time.

 Medieval philosophy : Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online
The way in which medieval philosophy develops in dialogue with the texts of ancient philosophy and the early Christian tradition (including patristic philosophy) is displayed in its two distinctive pedagogical and literary forms, the textual commentary and the disputation.
The general character of medieval philosophy in the West is determined to a significant extent by historical events associated with the collapse of Roman civilization.
For these reasons, scholarship in medieval philosophy is still in its early stages and remains a considerable distance from attaining the sort of authoritative and comprehensive view of its field now possessed by philosophical scholars of other historical periods with respect to their fields.

Most studies on Renaissance philosophy either appropriate it into a Neoplatonist interpretation of philosophy or wrestle with the concepts, methods and terminologies that are not very consistent even within the same philosopher and not in comparison with his contemporaries.
All Renaissance philosophies of nature tend to give universal, all encompassing theories of what there is. They never put up with regional ontologies (even though Cardano sometimes looks like that), with partial explanations and, of course, never with working hypotheses.

 Renaissance Philosophy
Late medieval and Renaissance philosophers were frequently in a dialogue with their contemporaries and with a tradition that included not just such luminaries as Saint Albert the Great, Saint Thomas Aquinas and Blessed John Duns Scotus, but also the likes of Siger of Brabant and John of Jandun.
The Renaissance has, of course, attracted much scholarly attention for over this century, but the philosophy of the period was, to begin with, relatively neglected and this is the first volume in English to synthesize for a wider readership the substantial and sophisticated research now available.
