I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History

World

A must-read for people working on the histories of philosophy, medicine, or science in Renaissance Italy. In this important book, Hasse challenges a reigning paradigm in Renaissance studies, documenting the continuing centrality of the Arabic tradition in Italy and the complex interactions of humanism and Arabism in scientific and philosophical teaching and debates.—Katharine Park, Harvard University

Success and Suppression is rich not only in its coverage of topics, but also in the variety of sources consulted and implications pursued. No matter which approach one takes or what background one brings to this book, the very exercise of reading it will bring unmitigated pleasure, if for no other reason than the vast tour d’horizon Hasse offers to the reader.—George Saliba, Columbia University
