Product Description

Review

"Not only does Political Thought in Europe, 1250-1450 fill an important gap, but it does so with grace, clarity and vision." Cary J. Nederman, The Review of Politics

"The two salient qualities of Political Thought in Europe, 1250-1450 are, first, that it is the product of rethinking, as opposed to being one more restatement of received knowledge, and, second, that it is free of any pet interpretations. Antony Black has no place for ascending and descending theories of authority, as a way of categorizing different concepts of sovereignty, or for Aristotle's political doctrines as the basis of the medieval political outlook. Indeed, he recognizes that there was no single medieval outlook. He also rightly rejects such outdated stereotypes as the corporate character of medieval society." Gordon Leff, Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

The thinkers, Aquinas, Marsiglio, Ockham, Wyclif and Cusa, as well as prevalent notions of church and state, empire and local sovereignty, civic and communal self-government, etc. emerge in this introduction to a period of vital importance in the formation of modern world values.

This is first and foremost a text on primary sources.It is well written and an ideal book for researching the middle ages. Antony Black presents the material in a clear and unambiguous manner which makes it a pleasure to use in the study of this period of history.
