The Greek Tradition in Republican Thought (Ideas in Context)

Eric Nelson


pdf: vector, totally searchable, bookmarked

Tracing the impression of historic Greek resources at the improvement of republican idea in Europe and the USA, this booklet argues that a massive culture of republican notion, derived from the principal texts of Greek ethical and political philosophy, emerged in 16th century England. It contributed considerably to the ideological framework of the English Civil Wars and the yankee Revolution. Eric Nelson deals major reinterpretations of a number of primary texts of ecu political conception, in addition to a thorough reappraisal of old Roman historiography.
