Today in the class of Social Sciences we have copied a scheme that Paqui has written before on the blackboard, the scheme was about Science and Thinking in the 15th 16th and 17th centuries. The scheme includes the main features of Humanism and factors which contributed to its development. And also it includes Empiricism and Rationalism.
Later Paqui has explained us the scheme with a presentation of Humanism, in the presentation Paqui explained us the main features of Humanism (Anthropocentrism, the revival of Antiquity, the curiosity and knowledge through reason and experience) the Factors that contributed to its development (Printing Press, Sponsors and Patrons, Universities and Academies and the arrival of many Byzantine wisemen to Italy) and some examples of writers, poet, philologists, philosophers and pedagogues (Dante Alighieri, Petrarch, Lorenzo Valla, Erasmus of Rotterdam, Luis Vives...)
Then Paqui has written on the blackboard a model scheme including the main features, the chronology and the main types of art (Architecture, Sculpture and Painting). In this model Paqui has written the Renaissance art (page 83) , and Paqui has told us to do the Baroque (page 106-107-108) scheme for homework following this model.
And for more information the new words that we have learned today were:
- - Research: investigación.
- - Wisemen: hombre sabio.
Bye, bye people, I hope you like it.
