Did modernity begin with the Renaissance and end with post-modernity? In this book a distinguished scholar challenges both these assumptions, discussing the roots, development, and impact of modern thought, tracing the fundamental principles of modernity to the late fourteenth century, and affirming that modernity is still an influential force in contemporary culture.

Publishers Description
Did modernity begin with the Renaissance and end with post-modernity? In this book a distinguished scholar challenges both these assumptions. Louis Dupre discusses the roots, development, and impact of modern thought, tracing the fundamental principles of modernity to the late fourteenth century and affirming that modernity is still an influential force in contemporary culture. The combination of late medieval theology and early Italian humanism shattered the traditional synthesis that had united cosmic, human, and transcendent components in a comprehensive idea of nature. Early Italian humanism transformed the traditional worldview by its unprecedented emphasis on human creativity. The person emerged as the sole source of meaning while nature was reduced to an object and transcendence withdrew into a "supernatural" realm. Dupre analyzes this fragmentation as well as the writings of those who reacted against it-philosophers like Cusanus and Bruno, humanists like Ficino and Erasmus, theologians like Baius and Jansenius, mystics like Ignatius Loyola and Francis de Sales, and theosophists like Weigel and Boehme. Baroque culture briefly reunited the human, cosmic, and transcendent components, but since that time the disintegrating forces have increased in strength. Despite post-modern criticism, the principles of early modernity continue to dominate the climate of our time. Passage to Modernity is not so much a critique as a search for the philosophical meaning of the epochal change achieved by those principles.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Amazing and Essential Book  Sep 24, 2004
Louis Dupre follows the established line of questioning set forth by Heidegger, Gadamer, and Ricoeur in his hermeneutical analysis of the history of thinking since the Greeks.

His insights are concisely set forth, and they are so subtle in their impact. He shows convincingly that the scientific methodlogies currently used today arose from theological concerns. The epistemological rift that so many schools of thinking hold to be an irreversible one is cast in a completely new light as Dupre traces the very life and essence of a single and central line of questioning over the ages.

For those interested in any of the hermeneutical thinkers, this book is essential. For those not interested in them, Dupre's work is still pertinent as it addresses the central theme of methodological conflicts afflicting every field of science--natural or human.
