Political Writings of Samuel Pufendorf by Samuel Pufendorf
Book DescriptionThe seventeenth-century philosopher Samuel Pufendorf was one of the most widely read natural lawyers of the pre-Kantian era. This volume presents the basic arguments and fundamental themes of his political and moral thought. Selections from the texts of Pufendorf's two major works, Elements of Universal Jurisprudence and The Law of Nature and Nations, have been brought together to make Pufendorf's moral and political thought more accessible. The selections appear here in a new English translation which far exceeds what is currently available. The translator has constructed a rendering of the Latin that is sophisticated but clear, and the volume has been prepared with an emphasis on continuity and readability. The editor has included a substantive introduction intended to acquaint readers with Pufendorf and his political thought and to indicate why his work has relevance for contemporary political discourse.

Introduction to the History of the Principal Kingdoms and States of Europe, Paperback (November 2011)
Samuel Pufendorf was, along with Grotius, a great renewer of natural law theory. First translated in 1695, this title exhibits the core notions of his natural law theory by recounting the development and reciprocal relations of individual states as collective social agents engaged in securing their own and, thus, their members' interests.
Present State of Germany, Paperback (February 2007)
First made available in English over three centuries ago, this book comes from an author who was well known in England as a staunch defender of the Protestant cause and as one of the renovators of natural law. His writings were familiar to such luminaries as Locke and figured prominently in James Tyrell's "Patriarcha non Monarcha" (1681).
Whole Duty of Man According to the Law of Nature, Hardback (January 2002)
This scholarly edition of Samuel Pufendorf's seminal work suggests a purely conventional basis for natural law. It outlines a new understanding of ethics and politics, one suited to states that were emerging from the aftermath of religious civil war.
Of the Nature and Qualification of Religion in Reference to Civil Society, Hardback (January 2002)» View all books by Samuel Pufendorf
Written in response to the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by the French king, Louis XIV, Pufendorf's work on toleration contests the right of the sovereign to control the religion of his subjects, because state and religion pursue wholly different ends.
