Three volumes. 8vo. 338; 300; 396 pp. Frontispieces, index. Original printed wrappers. Fine set. Ficin, of Florence, is one of the most influential humanist philosophers of the early Italian Renaissance. He headed the Platonic Academy of Florence, founded by Cosimo de Medici in 1459, and had for disciples and colleagues Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, Angelo Poliziano and Jerome Benivieni. Familiar with the writings of Aristotle, he also translated or commented the works of Plato. His writings of philosophy, metaphysics, religion and aesthetics, became influential in his time. The translator, Marcel Raymond, was a Swiss literary critic who specialized in French literature (especially an-Jacques Rousseau). He is generally grouped with the so-called 'Geneva School'. "In all of his work on French poetry and on . . .Rousseau, the fundamental principle of Raymond's approach was a focus on the ways literature comes out of a contemplative discovery of the self within the world."
