<history of philosophy, biography> Italian thinker (1463-1494) who studied in Florence with Marsillio Ficino. Pico's De hominis dignitate (Oration on the Dignity of Man) (1486) is an excellent statement of the principles of Renaissance humanism. He supposed it possible for an individual human being, as a microcosm of nature, to reconcile all philosophical positions in a single grand system of thought. Recommended Reading: Pico Della Mirandola, A Platonic Discourse on Love (Holmes, 1994) and S. A. Farmer, Syncretism in the West: Pico's 900 Theses (Medieval & Renaissance, 1998).
