Humanism has constantly proclaimed the belief that the only way to improve man's life on earth is to make man himself wiser and better. Unfortunately, the voice of the humanists has always been challenged by the loud and cheap promises of scientists, by the inflammatory tirades of politicians, and by the apocalyptic visions of false prophets. Material greed, nonsensical chauvinism, racial prejudice, and religious antagonism have progressively defiled the inner beauty of man. Today's bankruptcy of man's dignity in the midst of an unparalleled material abundance calls for an urgent revival of humanistic ideals and values. This book was planned from its very start as a modest step in that direction. It is not my intention, however, to attempt, once again, a global interpretation of Humanism in general, or of Renaissance Humanism in particular. I have been dissuaded from such a purpose by the failure of contemporary scholars to agree on such basic issues as whether the Renaissance was a total break with or a continuation of medieval culture, whether it was basically a Christian or a pagan movement, whether it was the effect or the cause of the classical revival. Instead, then, of discussing the significance of sixteenth century humanism, this book concentrates upon the life and the thought of a single humanist

Joan Lluís Vives (Valencia, 6 de marzo de 1492-Brujas, 6 de mayo de 1540). España. Nació en Valencia en una relevante familia de la comunidad judía que se convirtió al cristianismo para proteger su integridad y sus propiedades. Sin embargo, los Vives practicaban el judaísmo en una sinagoga que tenían en su casa hasta que fueron descubiertos en pleno oficio religioso y fueron condenados por la Inquisición. A los quince años, Juan Luis Vives empezó a estudiar en la Universidad de Valencia. El proceso contra su familia continuó y en 1509, su padre decidió enviarlo a París, donde estudió en la Sorbona y se graduó 1512 con el grado de doctor. Por entonces se fue a Brujas y allí recibió la noticia de que su padre había sido ejecutado en la hoguera. Deprimido, marchó a Inglaterra tras rechazar una oferta para enseñar en la Universidad de Alcalá de Henares. En el verano de 1523, fue elegido lector del Colegio de Corpus Christi por el cardenal Wosley en Inglaterra. Allí se hizo amigo de Tomás Moro y la reina Catalina de Aragón. Desde mayo de 1526 hasta abril de 1527 residió de nuevo en Brujas, donde supo de la condena a muerte de su amigo Tomás Moro por oponerse al divorcio del rey. Allí escribió su Tratado del socorro de los pobres, que propone por primera vez un servicio organizado de asistencia social. Vives dedicó sus últimos años a perfeccionar la cultura humanística de los duques de Mencia. En 1529 su salud era precaria: sufría dolores de cabeza y una úlcera estomacal. Murió el 6 de mayo de 1540 en su casa de Brujas de un cálculo biliar. Edición en la 1940, Buenos Aires, Espasa Calpe
