DE TRINA HOMINIS PERFECTIONE BY MICHELE PRIOLI

(The Threefold Perfection of Man)

Publication Date: 1589

Very Rare. First Edition of this Renaissance book on the nature of man and his "threefold perfection", in three books. The pursuit of human perfection was the dominant humanist ideal of the Renaissance. Man's true fulfilment lays in the pursuit of all knowledge, both through the initial receipt of and education encompassing all aspects of the arts, sciences, and physical dexterity, and through the continuous acquisition of new skills and knowledge. The essential philosophical issue here is to establish that the potential from natural, rational, and spiritual fulfilment is inscribed in human fabric since conception. #0980
