(p.87) 3 Renaissance Natural Philosophies
The Emergence of a Scientific Culture

Stephen Gaukroger (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

There were three competing movements in 16th-century natural philosophy. Platonism was revived in the 15th century and Ficino and Patrizi attempted, unsuccessfully, to provide an alternative to Aristotelianism. The renaissance naturalism of the 16th century aimed to secure autonomy for natural philosophy by presenting an increasingly radicalized naturalistic picture of the natural realm. Late scholastic textbook writers, from the late 16th to the early 17th centuries, attempted, unsuccessfully, to reform and systematize Christianized Aristotelianism to meet the new demands placed on it by developments in natural philosophy.

Keywords:   Christianized Aristotelianism, Marsilio Ficino, late scholastic textbook, Francesco Patrizi, Platonism, renaissance naturalism
