500 Quotations from the Great Philosophers of the 16th Century

Known as the High Renaissance period, the philosophy of the 1500s leaned towards establishing the relationship between the human body and the human soul. Logic was waning as a philosophical ideal and, instead, the focus fell on human nature.

‘500 Quotations from the Great Philosophers of the 16th Century’ cherry-picks some of the most profound and insightful observations from some of the finest minds of that era.

A superb gift for history buffs and philosophy fans alike.

Miguel de Cervantes (1547 – 1616) was born in Spain and went on to become one of the most important figures in Spanish literature. His use of colloquialism and ordinary speech challenged the overblown structures of traditional literature of the time. Michel de Montaigne (1533 – 1592) was a French philosopher who pioneered the use of essays as a literary device.

Niccolò Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) was an Italian diplomat and philosopher who condoned the use of unscrupulous means in politics. Born in Italy, Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) was an artist, inventor, scientist, and sculptor, who is best known for painting the ‘Mona Lisa,’ while Francis Bacon (1909 – 1992) is best known as an existential artist.
