16th-century philosophy is generally regarded as the later part of Renaissance philosophy.

Early 16th-century philosophy is often called the High Renaissance and is considered to succeed the Renaissance philosophy era and precede the Age of Rationalism. Notable philosophers from the time period include Desiderius Erasmus, Niccolò Machiavelli, Martin Luther, Samuel von Pufendorf, Nicolaus Copernicus, and Michel de Montaigne.[1]
