HIST 241 Late-Medieval to Renaissance European Ideas (1)

This lecture course surveys Late-Medieval to Renaissance European Intellectual Thought by focusing on four major figures each of whom advances a distinctive way of being in the world: Aquinas, Machiavelli, More and Montaigne—obey, force, share, and essay, respectively. These figures and forms of life will be understood in relation to their immediate and unfolding aesthetic, cultural, social and political historical contexts, as well as in terms of their subsequent influences and contemporary relevance.
