Opis produktu

George Buchanan (150682) was one of the most distinguished humanists of the Northern European Renaissance. Hailed by his contemporaries as the greatest Latin poet of his age he is chiefly remembered today as a radical political theorist whose Dialogus first published in Edinburgh in 1579 justified the deposition of Mary Queen of Scots in 1567 on the basis of a theory of popular sovereignty which vested in the people the right to resist depose and kill tyrannical monarchs. Dedicated to his pupil James VI whose violent reaction against his tutors ideas led him to develop his own views on the divine right of kings Buchanans work nevertheless proved immensely influential both in Britain and on the Continent making a notable contribution to the debates over the nature and location of sovereignty which would finally bear fruit in the writings of John Locke. This new edition featuring facingpage Latin text and English translation is accompanied by extensive notes and commentary on Buchanans classical and contemporary sources and a detailed introduction that examines the development of Buchanans political thought the context in which the Dialogus was written and published and an extended analysis of the text itself.Contents: Preface: Introduction: George Buchanan 150682: De Iure Regni apud Scotos Dialogus: an analysis: A note on the text and translation: De Iure Regni apud Scotos DIalogus: A dialogue on the Law of Kingship among the Scots: Notes and commentary: Bibliography: Index.
