The greatest example of Humanism was an individual - Erasmus of Rotterdam (c. 1466-1536). Humanism influenced the growth of learning by "abandoning medieval pieties in favour of a rich new vision of the individual's potential."

Humanism encouraged the ability of human beings to determine for themselves truth and falsehood.
