              Of the Law of Nature and Nations: Volume 4 Cloth (Hardback)

              In Of the Law of Nature and Nations, Pufendorf provided a comprehensive system of society, law, and government based on a theory of human nature. Eschewing contemporary theological ideas of human perfection and other-worldly beatitude, he founded his natural law on the need for s...ociability in this world. While paying great respect to Grotius as the founder of a modern, enlightened natural law, Pufendorf criticized his remaining scholasticism. Similarly, he learned from Hobbes but rejected the reduction of natural law to individual self-interest. Pufendorf wanted to transform natural law by getting rid of its metaphysical foundations, but he retained its function as a moral basis for civil law and the state. Of the Law of Nature and Nations was Pufendorf's magnum opus. Despite its enormous size, the work was translated into nine languages. Together with the shorter textbook version, The Whole Duty of Man--published in thirteen languages--Pufendorf's work influenced generations of students across Europe and America. Samuel Pufendorf (1632-1694) was one of the most important figures in early-modern political thought. An exact contemporary of Locke and Spinoza, he transformed the natural law theories of Grotius and Hobbes, developed striking ideas of toleration and of the relationship between church and state, and wrote extensive political histories and analyses of the constitution of the German empire. Basil Kennett (1674-1715) was an antiquary, translator, and Anglican clergyman who led a team effort in translating Pufendorf's great work. Knud Haakonssen is Professor of Intellectual History at the University of Sussex, England.

              This text was first published in 1975, after the resignation of President Nixon. It argues that the political community in the West had broken down and that the West had entered a twilight age , characterized by political and cultural crises similar to those that preceded the fal...l of Rome.

              Economic Sense and Nonsense comprises a collection of sixty essays written by Anthony de Jasay for his monthly column Reflections from Europe, on Liberty Funds Library of Economics and Liberty website. The articles span the years 2008 to 2012 and focus on economic issues of topic...al concern in Europe. In this collection Jasay continues his explorations of a number of themes that he developed in his earlier articles, such as the importance of property rights, the role of contracts in economic activity, the proper limitations of the state, and the attitude of intellectuals concerning the regulation of the free market. With the outbreak of the economic crisis of mid-2008, Jasay spends considerable time discussing its origins, the reactions of governments in both Europe and the United States, and the ensuing euro crisis, thus adding another dimension to his analysis of the economic woes of the industrialized world. Jasays analysis demonstrates that the postWorld War II experiment in building welfare states in Europe has reached a crisis point that will require deep and radical changes in thinking both by intellectuals about the nature of free markets and by policy makers about the intended and unintended impact of the regulations they adopt.

              On Religion: Considered in Its Source, Its Forms, and Its Developments
               

              On Religion: Considered in Its Source, Its Forms, and Its Developments (Hardback)

              This is the first full-length English translation of Benjamin Constants massive study of humanitys religious forms and development, published in five volumes between 1824 and 1831. Constant (17671830) regarded On Religion, worked on over the course of many years, as perhaps his m...ost important philosophical work. He called it the only interest, the only consolation of my life, and the book that I was destined by nature to write. While the recent revival of interest in Constants thought has been welcome and fruitful, it has been incomplete, tending to leave out of account his writings on religion. In this connection, On Religion is essential reading and of interest for many reasons. As an analysis of humanitys religious experience, the work is notable for its methodology. Unlike previous writers with dogmatic commitments, whether theological or philosophical, Constant aimed to work with well-established facts and to relate religious forms to their historical contexts and civilizational developments. In this way, he was a precursor of the scientific study of religion. This objectivity, however, was not tantamount to moral-political neutrality. In the aftermath of the French Revolution, he wanted partisans of the new order to recognize that the religious impulse was natural to the human heart: to extirpate religion was therefore a fools errand and worse. Likewise, he instructed religious reactionaries that history had left them behind: now the natural state of the religious sentiment was an unfettered spirituality left free to find new forms of expression. His counsel to contemporaries has proven prescient concerning subsequent religious developments in democratic and totalitarian societies. In his day, Constant was a consistent liberal, a life-long advocate of representative government, as well as of the central liberal arrangement concerning religion: separation of church and state. But On Religion demonstrates that principled liberalism can turn a sympathetic as well
