By taking myths literally, fundamentalist religion transforms mythos into logos. Crombie (viewing the Renaissance in the nineteenth-century manner as a chapter in the heroic March of Progress) calls "a backwards-looking admiration for antiquity", in which Platonism stood in opposition to the Aristotelian concentration on the observable properties of the physical world.

Unlike New Age, the Bible declares that truth is found, not by looking inward to self, but by looking upward, not by looking to men, but by looking to God (Jer. 17:5,9). Why are feminists content to let women avoid adult responsibilities that men can never avoid? We cannot achieve greater subjective intuitive experience through greater objective intellectual knowledge alone. This period was called the Middle Ages and it began during the fourteenth century.

He strongly criticized medieval habits of thought as inadequate and elevated ancient ideals and literature as models to emulate. The bibliography is divided into two sections; taken together, they provide a representative sample of existentialist writing. Your very good letter, for which I thank you, establishes a clear link between humanism and environmentalism, between mankind and the Earth as well as making the point that the likes of power companies and agrobusinesses are working in favour of neither.

Machiavelli's advice is not based on a belief that man is constantly seeking the good but that his nature is "fickle, cowardly, covetous." The existentialist, on the contrary, finds it extremely embarrassing that God does not exist, for there disappears with Him all possibility of finding values in an intelligible heaven. Similar rules apply to other minor festivals and fast days. Italians had already gone to Greece to study the language, and since 1396 Manuel Chrysoloras, the first teacher of Greek in the West, was busily engaged at Florence and elsewhere.

But Renaissance society also provided social services for the less fortunate. Confucianist Ruism and Secular Humanism share common ground in that each ideology maintains that the human being is naturally equipped with the capacity to be kind, courteous, caring and compassionate.
