LIVING WELL IN RENAISSANCE ITALY: The Virtues of Humanism and the Irony of Leon Battista Alberti
To understand not only the allure of Renaissance humanism, but also its shortcomings, this study evaluates the way Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) assessed humanist moral philosophy in Renaissance Italy. His skeptical, ironic viewpoint adapts the perspectives of fourteenth-century humanists, Francesco Petrarch and Giovanni Boccaccio.
