Editorial Reviews


"...the broad cultural and institutional context in which Hochstrasser places the major and minor intellectual figures brings a welcome sense of realism and sociopolitical engagement to ideas and texts that are all too frequently interpreted wholly out of context." Journal of Modern History

"The sheer range of this book and its ability to fold such a variety of intellectual developments into a coherent account are its chief recommendations... It is well written and carefully produced, and it will become an important toll in the field." Michael J. Seidler, American Political Science Review

Book Description

This study examines the development of natural law theories in the early stages of the Enlightenment in Germany and France. T. J. Hochstrasser investigates the influence of theories of natural law from Grotius to Kant, with a comparative analysis of important intellectual innovations in ethics and political philosophy. This book assesses the first histories of political thought, giving insights into eighteenth-century natural jurisprudence. Ambitious in range and conceptually sophisticated, it will be of great interest to scholars in history, political thought, law and philosophy.
