Summary/Abstract: The paper calls for redefinition of the relationship between humanities and science. Author analyzes the concept of studia humanitatis in the Renaissance philosophy, more precisely in two main streams of the Renaissance thought, humanism and neoplatonism, represented in this text by thesis of Francesco Petrarca, Marsilio Ficino and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. Their arguments concerning the importance and validity of humanities, which focus on dignity of man, human freedom, free will and power of creation are more relevant and vital than ever.
