The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy, published in 1988, offers a balanced and comprehensive account of philosophical thought from the middle of the fourteenth century to the emergence of modern philosophy. This was the first volume in English to synthesise for a wider audience the substantial and sophisticated research now available. The volume is organised by branch of philosophy rather than by individual philosopher or school, and the intention has been to present the internal development of different aspects of the subject in their own historical context. The structure also naturally emphasises the international nature of philosophy in the Renaissance.

"The appearance of the present volume will be warmly welcomed not only by historians of philosophy, but by all those engaged in any branch of Renaissance intellectual history, including the history of science and religion. Doubtless, it will serve as a standard work of reference for many years to come. It is a fitting monument to a fine and generous scholar." Nancy G. Siraisi, English Historical Review
"...one must gratefully acknowledge the massive achievement of the enterprise and of the editorial vision that has supplied us with an intricately detailed and capacious volume that in many signal ways goes well beyond the existing histories of Renaissance philosophy and will undoubtedly serve as a stimulus and a resource for years to come." M.J.B. Allen, Renaissance Quarterly
"It is clearly the most comprehensive survey in English of Renaissance philosophy and easily rivals the best surveys in other languages on this topic. It is a first-rate piece of historical and philosophical scholarship--philosophically insightful, biographically detailed and highly thought-provoking in its historical observations..." Donald A. Cress, International Studies in Philosophy
"A valuable reference-book, this volume includes the most up-to-date scholarship on Renaissance thought and a number of reappraisals of the intellectual features of this crucial period in the history of Western thinking." Adriana McCrea, Dalhousie Review
