Government / Philosophy






For the last month we have been looking at the role of individuals and their responsibility to society. Please post a comment here that not only identifies a "Renaissance" individual but also tells us briefly how that individual lived up to their responsibility to society.

Another great man that was in the Medieval Era was St. Francis of Assisi. he was the son of a very wealth merchant, that gave up his wealth when he was 20 years old. he did this because after he done all this he started to educate the people that couldnt read. so then they can understand what is going on in the town as well as the church.

The life of a renaissance woman was suppression. They were controlled by their parents throughout their childhood and then were directly handled into the hands of a husband. Isabella d’Este was perhaps the most powerful and most intelligent woman of the renaissance. She mastered Greek and Latin and memorized the works of the ancient scholars, all while excelling in the arts of singing, dancing and playing musical instruments. As the noble-woman of Mantua, she exercised a great amount of influence over the politics, social life and economics of the city.

Galileo was an Italian scientist who studied the sciences of nature. He was also an astronomer and a philosopher. His successes were that he made better; the telescope[he was the first to use it], first and second laws of motion, more findings of astronomy, and his maintainment for Copernicanism. His work was known from the writings of Francis Bacon in creating the scienrific method. Also, Galileo had a problem with the Roman Catholic Church and was an example of the problem of authority, freedom of thought, which dealt with science. He also created the mathematical law for acceleration and he was a pioneer in making hard experiments of physics.

In the Renaissance, Italy used city-states as a government. This system was like the Greek government in ancient times. City states were different than being ruled by a king. Each city-state had its own government.

The leader of the Italian city-states was Machiavelli, who lived from 1469 to 1527. He was known as the father of political science. His most famous book, "The Prince," was about politics and government. It was one of the most controversial books of the Renaissance. the website given below shows the image of hiself.

Adding to what Jessica Ashley and Sorybel have written Niccolo Machiavelli was associted with corrupt, totalitarian government. The only reason why he wrote a pamphlet called The Prince was so that he can gain influence with the ruling Medici family in Florence. He was misunderstood because of his views on politics and that damaged his reputation. Machiavelli entered the government as a secretary. His postion quickly rose and then he met many important poltics such as Pope and King of France. But the person who he disliked was Cesare Borgia. Machiavelli didn't like his policies but he thought that with a leader like Borgia, who was cruel and cunning, he can reunite the Florentines with Italy. This was Machiavelli's goal throughout his life. However when Medici came to rule Florence and the Republican was overthrown. Machiavelli was dismissed from office then. Cause he didn't have a job, he was forced to write about politcs instead of being active in it.

John Locke wrote a book called the "Two Treaties of Government" about his thoughts of how government should be. It stated that he thought everyone was basically good. There was another person that lived at a different time but wrote a book on the same thing, how he thought government should be run. Its called "Leviathan". It was about how he thought that people in general, are evil and that they need a King to control them and keep them in order. I agree with both of them because I don't really think that all people are evil but I do feel that society needs a sole ruler to operate efficiently.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 –1778) was a Franco-Swiss philosopher of the Enlightenment whose political ideas influenced the French Revolution, teh development of socialist theory, and the growth of nationalism. He's published many books including "The Social Contract," in which he has his famous line, "Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains."Rousseau saw a basic division between society and human nature. Rousseau belived that man was good by nature, but was corrupted by society.Rousseau was one of the first modern writers to seriously attack the institution of private property. One of the main principles of rousseau's political philosophy is that politics and morality should not be separated.Rousseau's ideas about education have deeply influenced modern educational theory.He placed a special emphasis on learning by experience.The reason rousseau ahd a lot fo fame is because he always argued for the contrary.

Adding to what Kemi, Sam, Christian, and Kyle mentioned Montesquieu helped pave the way for government through his philosophies. Montesquieu was a French born philosopher. Montesquieu contributed to the people by writing books about his views on the government. He wrote and published two books known as the Persian Letters and The Spirit of Laws. His books displayed his political views and gained vast popularity across Europe. But, Montesquieu’s books were seen negatively by the church and banned. Montesquieu strongly believed in separation of powers and in the creation of constitution. He believed it was necessary to have a written contract or document making laws clear for the people to understand. Montesquieu’s wise views were greatly admired and later used as the foundation of our very own constitution and system of government. This shows that Montesquieu thought well beyond his time and fought for what he believed was justice for the people during the Renaissance. ~Shivani

Gutenberg was a skilled craftsman. He built the printing press by applying the printing principle of the press used to crush grapes for wine. His workshop could print about 300 sheets each day. In 1455 Gutenberg produced his furst complete printed book - the Bible. His edition, known as the Gutenberg Bible contained more than 1,200 pages in two volumes. It probably took several years to set and print.
