I am co-organizing a one day workshop on Renaissance Philosophy with Michael Engel (Cambridge) that will take place on the 14th June at Senate House in London. Here is the blurb we wrote for it:
Renaissance philosophy is a fascinating yet neglected period in the history of philosophy. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries the rise of Humanism and the rediscovery of ancient texts led to new ways of doing philosophy. At the same time the period saw the culmination of the medieval scholastic tradition, with the works of Aristotle and his commentators printed for the first time and an unprecedented number of new commentaries being written. These contrasting tendencies of continuity and change mark the period that bridges the gap between Medieval and Early Modern philosophy. The aim of this workshop is to explore and assess the place of Renaissance philosophy within the Western philosophical tradition.
