The writings of Pre-Socratic philosophers were lost to obscurity until Renaissance scholars rediscovered and translated them into modern language. Thus the term "humanist" can mean humanities scholar (who may be hostile to Secular Humanism and The Enlightenment), Renaissance intellectuals, and those who have agreement with the Pre-Socratics. To make matters worse, some use the term as a synonym for "humanitarian".
