Natural law and civil sovereignty moral right and state authority in early modern political thought by Ian Hunter( )
15 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Early modern natural law theorists were confronted by a single crucial problem: how to provide a new, secular legitimacy for civil authority under circumstances in which confessional conflict had rendered the standard religious justifications inoperable or suspect. In Natural Law and Civil Sovereignty fifteen leading historians of political thought provide fresh accounts of how early modern writers rose to this challenge. In addition to offering novel treatments of figures well known to English readers (Grotius, Hobbes, Locke, Cumberland), the chapters also reveal the crucial role played by lesser-known writers (Althusius, Pufendorf, Thomasius, Barbeyrac, Burlarnaqui), paying particular attention to the circumstance their doctrines were intended to address and to the milieux in which they were disseminated, in the context of today's fears and hopes for the demise of the sovereign state, this book provides a series of timely insights into the early modern struggle that gave birth to the modern concept of sovereignty - the struggle to legitimate a desacralised political order."--BOOK JACKET.

The whole duty of man according to the law of nature by Samuel Pufendorf( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The Whole Duty of Man (1691), first published in Latin in 1673 as De officio hominis et civis, Pufendorf elaborates his conception of ethics, which separates civil duties from religious hopes. Unlike many Christian political theologians of the seventeenth century, Pufendorf refused to ground his natural law ethics in the ideal of human perfection or holiness; rather, he grounded them in the need for sociability, which he regarded as simply a means to an end - that is, human self-preservation and civil peace. Like Grotius and Hobbes, Pufendorf was responding to the religious wars that wracked early modern Europe by constructing a version of natural law capable of defending the civil state against the religious and moral delegitimation wielded by international Catholicism and Protestant zealots."--BOOK JACKET
