Some Renaissance/Early Modern Topoi in the Twenty First Century

    Opis produktu

    Some Renaissance/Early Modern Topoi in the Twenty First Century is a unique publication on the sixteenth-seventeenth European  culture, politics and societal studies. Although the book is primarily addressed to scholars and academics who study the Renaissance/Early Modern episteme, it can also attract the attention of  many other circles of readers interested in an interdisciplinary discourse devoted to e.g. governance, theology, religion, politics, diplomacy and literature. Since the essays focus on facts, processes, texts and state formations, which do not  generally belong  to the general discourse, they pose a challenge to the conventional perception of the period under discussion
