Chapter Summary

Shalva Nutsubidze was a Georgian philosopher, philologist, and scholar of culture. Nutsubidze's scholarly activity is divided into two periods. The first period of activity extended to the publications he devoted to the principles of alethology. The second period of his research activities began in the 1930s, when the hardening of ideological pressures motivated Nutsubidze to move away from the problems of alethology and switch to the study of such historical aspects of philosophy and culture as the Oriental Renaissance, Medieval and Renaissance Neoplatonism, and the history of Georgian philosophy and literature. According to Nutsubidze, in the twelfth century, when medieval Georgia achieved its highest level of economic and cultural growth, a new philosophical outlook and Weltanschauung, a new conception of the duties and possibilities of human beings was formed which can be labeled as Humanism and Renaissance.
