History of Humanism

Linda Mabry traces the Renaissance origins of humanism. Meet the scholars who searched for ancient Greek and Roman texts to try to understand humans as more than passive vessels of an unseen god. It is in Renaissance Italy that humanism first arose, challenging the medieval view of purpose and causality in the world, and of the place of humans in it. Ms. Mabry is professor of educational psychology at Washington State University’s campus in Vancouver. Several years ago, she developed a fascination with Renaissance Italy and she has traveled to its famous, and to its lesser-known, sites.
