Gur'yanov I.G. Essay on the History of Research of Marsilio Ficino's Philosophy in the Anglo-Saxon Intellectual Context During the XX Century

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2015-4 in rubric "The dialogue of cultures", pages 553-562.

Resume: Studies in intellectual and cultural history deal with the ideas of the Renaissance Neo-Platonism in a much different way during the late 19th century and 20th century. One of the main figures of these researches is Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) who is well-known for the historiosophic conception of prisca theologia and also for his translations of all Plato’s and Plotin’s works and writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus as well as commentaries on them. Interpretations of Ficino’s thought change dramatically the complex epistemological attitudes to the Renaissance. The article focuses on the works devoted to the philosophy of Marsilio Ficino and analyses the immanent theoretical and contextual (social, institutional) background for the emergence of the Renaissance studies in Anglo-Saxon intellectual world in the middle of XX century as a separate and self-consistent field of research. It is shown that the crucial point in this process is the appearance of German immigrant scientists in the Anglo-Saxon intellectual context  and the successful institutionalization of their research projects and programs. Thus the history of humanities manifests itself through continuity and interaction between intellectual influences and social expectations which could not be reduced mechanically to the constellation of the ideas of autonomic disciplines established in the national scientific contexts.

Keywords: Neo-Platonism, Renaissance, history of knowledge, knowledge transfer, Marsilio Ficino, German emigration, Renaissance studies, history of Ideas, Ernst Cassirer, Paul Oscar Kristeller
