On the Dignity of Man, Paperback


Reflecting the broad range of interests of a major Renaissance philosopher and his distinctive brand of syncretism, this anthology offers in their entirety three central works of Pico's.

On the Dignity of Man , the quintessential expression of Renaissance humanism, appears in the context of two lesser known but equally representative mature works: On Being and the One , a treatise defending what Pico held to be the agreement between Aristotle and Plato on the relation between unity and being, and Heptaplus , an interpretation, influenced by a blend of cabalism and Christian doctrine, of the first verses of Genesis.
