It is difficult to find decent secondary sources that are survey expositions of renaissance philosophy, which are not merely historical; this book, however, is an excellent combination of intellectual history with history of philosophy. Copenhaver (now in the philosophy dept. at UCLA) picks up where Charles Schmitt left off at his death. The result is an excellent resource that should be read in conjunction with Copleston.
