    Grotius

    Edited by John Dunn, Ian Harris
    Hugo Grotius (1583–1645), the Dutch jurist and philosopher, is a key theorist of the post-mediaeval state.

  4. Machiavelli

    Machiavelli

    Edited by John Dunn, Ian Harris
    The work of Niccolo Machiavelli (1469–1527) has a variety of meanings for different interpreters. Some attribute to him a new 'scientific method' of drawing conclusions from practical or historical experience in order to form rules for successful political behaviour, with its emphasis on man's behavioural patterns rather than on moral precepts as a basis for politics. Others attribute to him a belief in the autonomy of the state - that the state is a structure governed by its own laws of development and that it finds its justification only in terms of its success. Others again emphasise his republicanism and see him as a theorist of the modern state. [Some believe his first name is the proper basis of an appellation of the Devil.] Learn More

  5. Hobbes

    Hobbes

    Edited by John Dunn, Ian Harris
    Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) is best known for his development of the concept of sovereignty, which was treated most clearly in his great work, Leviathan. Whilst Hobbes was not the first theorist of sovereignty, he remains perhaps the most thorough exponent of the concept. His accounts of morality and religion, as well as of government, are set out in a way that precludes legitimate challenge to the sovereign's authority: and the soovereign, whether monarchical or republican or parliamentary, was taken by Hobbes to be fundamental to civil life.

  6. Hume

    Hume

    Edited by John Dunn, Ian Harris
    The work of David Hume (1711–76), the Scottish historian and philosopher, constitutes a break with the assumptions of his predecessors who ssuggested that our ideas and practices answered to a rational design, whether divine or human. Instead Hume emphasized the origins of our ideas in sensation, suggested that reason was properly the slave of the passions, and located the origins of social and political institutions in utility and sentiment.

    Edited by John Dunn, Ian Harris

In the history of political thought More is remembered as the author of Utopia, a little book which gave rise to a genre of literature and a name for a mode of theorising, which explicitly criticises existing political and social arrangements from a radical perspective and also offers new ideals and illustrates how these might be realised in an imaginery society.

  15. THE INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL ECONOMY AND INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

    THE INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL ECONOMY AND INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

    Edited by Oran R. Young
    Starting with a selection of classical articles on international institutions, this book traces the evolution of regime analysis over the last two decades as a new perspective on international governance. In the process it provides a full account of the major schools of thought that have arisen to account for the demand for international governance, the formation of international regimes, and the effectiveness of international governance systems. By drawing a clear distinction between institutions and organizations and then analysing the relationship between the two, the book clarifies the concept of ‘governance without government’. A number of essays explore the probable impact of the proliferation of international regimes on the character of international society. The book’s concluding section takes stock of the current status of regime and analyses and assesses emerging challenges in this vibrant field of study. Learn More
