An overview of the crucial period of 1480-1700 in European intellectual development, including the roles of Erasmus, Copernicus, Descartes, Newton, Leibnitz, Bayle and Locke. It examines Renaissance humanism, the new churches, Jansenism in France and the development of the scientific method and ranges from Poland and Hungary to Spain, from Sweden to Italy. Robert Mandrou (1921-84) was a French historian of the Annales School. Published in France in 1973, the English translation was first published by Penguin in 1978 as Vol. 3 of the Pelican History of European Thought series.
