  • Liberality as a Fiscal Problem in Medieval and Renaissance Thought: A
           Genealogy from Aristotle's Tyrant to Machiavelli's Prince

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When the rulers of Ferrara, the brothers Borso and Leonello d'Este, wrote to advise Alfonso V of Aragon on how to maintain control over the recently conquered Kingdom of Naples in 1444, their first concern was the state's financial organization. That concern raised the thorny issue of the relationship between the king's virtue and the preservation of his regime. The brothers' missive warned that Alfonso's liberality, in particular his penchant for gifting, was depleting the resources he needed both to rule and to earn future honor.1 Their economic advice considered the virtue and the practice of liberality, the institution of new taxes, the rationalization of accounts, management of fiscal surpluses, and the public ...

  • Debating Drama in the Early Modern University: John Case, Aristotle's
           Politics, and a Previously Unknown Oxford Disputation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The question of the morality of theatrical performance reverberated throughout early modern Europe. It was addressed by humanists and theologians, pamphleteers and players, echoing across a wide variety of polemical contexts. Yet despite the range of these discussions, the participants held in common their reliance upon, and reference to, the authors of the classical world, where theatrical performance had likewise been a controversial issue. The purpose and propriety of drama had been discussed at length by Plato and Aristotle, both of whom were invoked in the early modern debates; the rediscovery of Aristotle rendered him a particularly frequent referent. His position within these debates was variable, however. ... Read More

  • Charles Francis Sheridan on the Feudal Origins and Political Science of
           the 1772 Revolution in Sweden

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a memorable anecdote, James Boswell described how Samuel Johnson seized upon a book and "seemed to read it ravenously as if he devoured it" before a dinner party. He then "kept [the book] wrapt up in the tablecloth in his lap during the time for dinner … resembling … a dog who holds a bone in his paws in reserve, while he eats something else which has been thrown to him."1 The book in question was the now forgotten History of the Late Revolution in Sweden (1778), written by the Irishman Charles Francis Sheridan (1750–1806), older brother of the more famous man of letters-cum-politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan. This article demonstrates why Johnson and others in the British Isles were so interested in this ... Read More

  • The Neapolitan Enlightenment and the Conceptual Challenges of Antislavery
           Legislation in Colombia

      Abstract: For Carly & JulietaEighteenth-century Naples was a remarkable center of Enlightenment thought and practice. Because the region was a former realm of the crowns of Aragon and Castile and remained within the sphere of influence of the Spanish Bourbons, Neapolitan publicists imagined the power of foreign magistrates and laws as obstacles standing in the way of liberty, justice, happiness, and wealth.1 Some Italian thinkers stood out for their inquiry into the legal and colonial challenges faced by the project for the betterment of humankind. As British and Spanish overseas territories struggled for independence, this inquiry resonated in the Americas, from Philadelphia to Buenos Aires. Revolution in the Americas, in ... Read More

  • From Status Politics to the Paranoid Style: Richard Hofstadter and the
           Pitfalls of Psychologizing History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On the evening of November 22, 1963, Richard Hofstadter, the DeWitt Clinton Professor of American History at Columbia University, attended a small dinner party in Cambridge, the English university town that he knew well from a one-year tenure as the visiting Pitt Professor of American History and Institutions in 1958–59. Writing some weeks later after his return to New York, Hofstadter thanked the evening's hosts, the historian Jack Pole and his wife Marilyn, and remarked that the evening "would have been perfect if we hadn't been deluged by bad news."1 The "bad news" in question was the assassination of President Kennedy, whose time of death, at 1:00 p.m. Central Standard Time, corresponded to 7:00 p.m. in ...

  • Identity, Immigration, and Islam: Neo-reactionary and New-Right
           Perceptions and Prescriptions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: France has seen over a century of debate about the influence of ideas, the responsibility of the intellectual, and rights to free speech. One of the more recent debates concerns writers who are using the language of French neorepublicanism—particularly laïcité, gender equality, and French cultural heritage—to challenge immigration and Islamization as a threat to French identity. These authors are emerging from across the political spectrum and their ideas are propagated in both right-wing and mainstream circles. Historians and political scientists, at a loss for an all-encompassing label, have utilized the term neo-reactionary, popularized by Daniel Lindenberg in his controversial Le Rappel à l'ordre (2002), to ...

  • The Many Lives of René Descartes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Every biographer of the seventeenth-century philosopher and mathematician René Descartes—and their number has increased dramatically over the past two decades—has his or her own Descartes. There may be no tinker or tailor, but there is indeed Descartes the soldier and Descartes the spy. There is Descartes the devout Catholic and Descartes the Protestant sympathizer. He is an atheist, a libertine, a skeptic, a Socinian, and a Rosicrucian. As a philosopher he was the first of the moderns—so often celebrated as "the father of modern philosophy"—and the last of the medievals, unable to shed vestiges of his Scholastic education.The contours of his life are relatively well established. Descartes was born in 1596, almost ... Read More
