Humanism and New Ways of Thinking

Although in terms of philosophy the Renaissance did not really contribute new insights and still shared the medieval worldview in many aspects, the achievements were mostly in arts and politics by Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli.

Nonetheless, despite the lack of philosophical unity, these new movements in different disciplines and areas gradually influenced and changed the perspective of the people. One of its most profound impacts was on education and turning away from previously established scholastic disciplines of logic and law, astronomy and philosophy to the studia humanitatis, the liberal arts of grammar, rhetoric, poetry and moral philosophy, all more closely related to humanistic values.
