Pufendorf: On the Duty of Man and Citizen according to Natural Law by Samuel Pufendorf
Book DescriptionOn the Duty of Man and Citizen (1673) is Pufendorf's succinct and condensed presentation of the natural law political theory he developed in his monumental classic On the Law of Nature and Nations (1672). His theory was the most influential natural law philosophy of the seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries. He advanced a compelling reply to Grotius and Hobbes, and in doing so, set the intellectual problems for theorists such as Locke, Hutcheson, Hume, Rousseau, and Smith. In the aftermath of the Thirty Years' War, Pufendorf sets forth a classic justification of the early modern enlightened state and of the proper relations of moral and political subjection to it. This lucid and historically sensitive translation by Michael Silverthorne, (a classicist and a specialist in Roman Law and early modern political thought) is the first since the early twentieth century. James Tully's introduction sets the text in its seventeenth-century context, summarises the main arguments, surveys recent literature on Pufendorf, and shows how Pufendorf transformed natural law theory into an independent discipline of juristic political philosophy which dominated reflection on politics until Kant.

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).
Of the Nature and Qualification of Religion in Reference to Civil Society, Paperback (January 2002)
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.
