  5. 5.  Humanists focused on the study of classical works – known as the “New Learning”  New learning then brought revival of interest in classical letters and the value of individuals to the Renaissance  Humanists reject transcendental or beyond the ordinary justifications such as dependence on faith  Humanists did not find conflict with the Catholic Church or Christianity, and many Humanists belonged to clergy of Catholic Church  Philosophy led to the criticizing of the Catholic Clergy and the realization that the Church was flawed  Because of Humanism, people challenged the church and the philosophy laid the foundations for the remarkable growth of natural science during the Renaissance
  6. 6.  2nd Renaissance/Pre- Renaissance Philosophy was Neo-Platonism  Took definite shape under philosophers Plato and Plotonius  Philosophical school created by Plato which taught pupils from all over Greek world about Neo- Platonism  The school was most famously known as the Academy  Neo-Platonism emphasized mystical elements of Platonism  Viewed as a form of mysticism that had theoretical and practical parts stemming from the belief in a divine or supernatural entity such as God
  7. 7.  Christian thinkers found powerful aid in spiritualism of Neo-Platonism  Helped defend and maintain a conception of the human soul  Christian writers also took advantage of support from Neo-Platonism  Support came from doctrine that stated a spiritual world more real than the world of matter exists  Provided major influence in European cultural life
  8. 8.  Humanism and Neo-Platonism contributed to the development of several modern day philosophies – including Atheism and Kabbalah  Commonality between all Atheists is a lack in belief of Gods  Main similarity between Humanists and Atheists – daunting belief that a supernatural power or powers do not existed in universe
  9. 9.  Kabbalah, the 2nd modern philosophy – influence by Neo- Platonism  Term comes from Hebrew root L’Kabel , which means “to receive”  Purpose of philosophy is to bring clarity, understanding, and freedom to one’s life  Ultimately erasing death itself  Both Kabbalah and Neo-Platonism are similar based on the teachings of separating one’s self from material world to gain purity and to have the soul return to God
