It could be referred to as the leading intellectual movement of the time, called humanism, which developed a human-centric outlook on the world, valuing  individuals intellect and achievement. From this philosophy arose the Renaissance, an individual who embodies the humanism’s principals in their ceaseless courtship of affairs. One of the most well-known and immensely recognized examples showed in the art of the creation of  Leonardo da Vinci.
