Turbulent political situation and no continuity of organized philosophical activity on the territory of the present-day Croatia in the Renaissance period allow only for an overview of individual philosophers who originated from that territory, or conducted their philosophical activities there, between the 15th and the 17th century. A few of these thinkers were influenced by the cultures of Central Europe, but most came from the coastal area which belonged to the Italian cultural and political sphere, especially that of the Republic of Venice. Most philosophers in this entry received their education and pursued their careers abroad, in cities of Italy and other European centres. Biographies, achievements and main works of these thinkers are grouped into four topographic sections: (1) the continental area, (2) the northern coastal area, (3) central Dalmatia and (4) south Dalmatia, in particularly the Republic of Dubrovnik. Within each section, philosophers are listed in chronological order. Philosophers of wider renown are mentioned briefly, mainly to situate them in this context and to refer the reader to the corresponding biographical essays.
