OSPFLOR 47: Faith, Science, and the Classical Tradition in Renaissance Florence

The Renaissance was a pivotal period in the history of European thought when the Christian religious worldview was challenged by the recovery of classical secular philosophy. In particular, Stephen Greenblatt's Pulitzer-prize-winning The Swerve argues that the rediscovery of Lucretius' On the Nature of Things reoriented European intellectual history toward modern scientific materialism.Readings from Renaissance philosophers and site visits to see the magnificent works of Florentine art will suggest a more complex interaction between religious experiences and secular thought. This course will aim to develop students' capacity for historical criticism, to enhance students' knowledge and appreciation of the philosophy and art of Renaissance Florence, and to illustrate how contemporary social science can be used to deepen our understanding of historical change.
