ⓘ Humanist Generation (Strauss-Howe Theory)

The Humanist Generation is the name given by sociologists to describe the generation of people, born 1461–1482. It is an identified cohort within the Strauss–Howe generational theory, which classified it under the Artist type.

This generation reached adulthood at the height of the middle Ages shortly before the reformation and the Renaissance. For the educated classes, life was pretty static, the Renaissance humanist learning and clear career path through the Church or the state bureaucracy is becoming more affordable for the educated middle class. Humanist influences have taken root throughout Europe, and in many ways prepared the intellectual terrain for the coming of the reformation. Their youth coincided with the development of the European printing press, allowing wider dissemination of knowledge.

According to Strauss and Howe, those who represent this generation had a comfortable childhood during a bloody civil war and educated abroad, becoming Greek-teachers, scientists, poets, prelates, and literate merchants and yeoman. Education produced by the humanist generation has been described as focused on the qualitative and subjective rather than quantitative and objective.
