JOHANNES ALTHUSIUS POLITICA PDF

Johannes Althusius. Professor Carney's translation, which first appeared in , represents the first attempt to present the basic structure of Althusius's political thought in English. It combines ancient and medieval political philosophy with Reformation theory, and is considered a bridge between the political wisdom of the ancients and the moderns. Friedrich thought Althusius was the most profound political thinker between Bodin and Hobbes. Drawing deeply from Aristotle and Biblical teaching, "Politica" presents a unique vision of the commonwealth as a harmonious ordering of natural associations. According to Althusius, the purpose of the state is to protect and encourage social life.

After philosophic and legal studies in Switzerland, Althusius was a professor at the University of Herborn in Nassau until , when he became syndic of the town of Emden in the German province of East Friesland Ostfriesland. He wrote a noted general treatise on Roman law , as well as other legal essays, but his principal work was Politica methodice digesta atque exemplis sacris et profanis illustrata , enlarged and , a systematized tract on all forms of human association.

Althusius elaborated five principal types of association, each a combination of the preceeding: the family, the voluntary corporation, the local community , the province, and lastly the state.

A series of social contracts sustains the system as new groups are brought into existence. Each of his groups has an independent existence. Through his discussion of the complex relations between levels and the different types of associational arrangements, he developed a comprehensive theory of federalism as the means of achieving national unity, in which sovereignty , resting in the people through their groups, cannot be transferred because it is essential to the being of the political community.

While reflecting Calvinist puritanism, Althusius stressed that each social group is to be justified by providing a full and happy life to its members. For several centuries interest in Althusius was slight until he was rediscovered early in the 20th century by Otto Friedrich von Gierke. Johannes Althusius. Info Print Cite. Submit Feedback.
