Grafton explores the intellectual life of the Renaissance humanists, arguing that they did not work in a vacuum but rather interacted with one another and with the architects, sculptors, painters, and political theorists of their day. The result was a real intellectual community that belies the myth of the humanist scholar as a solitary figure ensconced in a study surrounded by classical texts. (Robert J.
