The philosophy that is called the Renaissance was the approval of the continuity of the great ancient culture, the affirmation of humanism ideals. Conductors of a new culture called themselves the humanists. True humanism proclaims the right of man to freedom, happiness, recognizes person`s rights as the benefit of the foundation of the social order, according to the principles of equality, justice and humanity in the relationship between people and it also frees them from religious bondage. Renaissance humanists believed that the possibility of human knowledge are infinite, because the human mind is like a divine mind, and the man himself is a kind of mortal god, and in the end people will enter the territory of the celestial bodies and will settle there and become gods. Enjoyment of earthly existence - this is an indispensable part of the culture of the Renaissance. Renaissance humanists believed that the person is important not by its origin or social status, but by personal qualities, such as intelligence, creative energy, initiative, self-esteem, freedom, education. The "ideal man" is recognized as the strong, talented and comprehensively developed personality, the creator of man himself and his fate. In the Renaissance, the human person acquires an unprecedented value; the most important feature of the humanistic approach to life becomes individualism, which contributes to the spread of liberal ideas and an overall increase in the level of freedom of people in society. It is no accident that the humanists that are generally not opposed to religion and did not dispute the main provisions of Christianity, withdrawn God the role of creator, which led the world in motion and then does not interfere in people's lives.
The Renaissance is reflected very well in the philosophical-aesthetic phenomenon, called humanism. It was of a pronounced secular character, opposed the spiritual supremacy of the Church, opposed the feudal privileges, defending a new, radically different from the medieval, view of man and his place in the world. Humanism is based on the most advanced and progressive outlook of the era, that was performed and supported by craft group.
The Renaissance individualism engendered the main feature of the culture of the Renaissance - anthropocentrism that has penetrated into all aspects of life. Instead of the traditional belittling a person, he is declared as the highest value.
