Book by Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola

Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463 - 1494) was an Italian Renaissance .

Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463 - 1494) was an Italian Renaissance philosopher who embodied the Renaissance enthusiasm for classical antiquity, zeal for the discovery of unnoticed ancient source material, and development of the problems present by the ancient masters. The second treatise "On Being and the One" is an attempt to harmonize the supposed dichotomous understandings of God, as being, as described through the Platonist and perennial Aristotelian schools. It's also a good read for a general understanding of God and the metaphysics of esse.

Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) in his youth visited the chief Italian and French universities. In 1486 he issued a challenge to all comers to debate on any of nine hundred theses at Rome, but the debate was forbidden by the pope on the score of the heretical tendency of some of these theses, and Pico suffered persecution until Alexander VI in 1493 absolved him from heresy. His philosophical writings include Heptaplus and De Hominis Dignitate, from which the following selection is taken.
