Review quote "This first-ever English-language edition of a once-celebrated work by a contemporary of Jean Bodin is a valuable contribution to the Skinnerian project of filling in the intellectual valleys separating the 'peaks' of Plato and Aristotle, Augustine and Aquinas, Hobbes and Locke, Rousseau and Kant, and Hegel and Marx.
