I am looking for Humanist philosophers that worked on the philosophy of mind after 1200 AD but before 1750?

Any help is appreciated.

    Taking a vague definition of "worked on the philosophy of mind" and "humanist philosophers":

    Rene Descartes;

    Nicolas Malebranche;

    Gottfried Leibniz;

    Baruch Spinoza;

    Thomas Hobbes;

    Bishop George Berkeley;

    John Locke;

    and others such as:


    Saint John of the Cross;

    Henry of Navarre;



    Nicolas Cusanus;

    William of Ockham;


    Duns Scotus;

    Henry of Ghent;

    Saint Thomas Aquinas;

    Albert Magnus...and so on :-)

    Descartes. The first humanists were textual analysts and Europeans weren't aware the brain was more than a cooling device... It wasn't until Vesalius (16th) that they got an inkling about brain/mind. Then you get Descartes using his work to invent dualism (which is false, but still wildly believed today).

    Well, historical & modern philsophies are essentially the same. Your best bet is to pick a moral issue which you are passionate about, pick the policital party which is best suited to support you in that issue, and campaign on what is best for the people you represent.
