The return of Lucretius to Renaissance Florence

Brown demonstrates how Florentine thinkers used Lucretius-earlier and more widely than has been supposed-to provide a radical critique of prevailing orthodoxies. She enhances our understanding of the "revolution" in sixteenth-century political thinking and our definition of the Renaissance within newly discovered worlds and new social networks.
