PHILOSOPHY

Updated edition.

This work presents to students, teachers, and, more generally, to everyone who wishes to get acquainted with political concepts, a complete study of the foundational works of political philosophy.

By analyzing more than forty titles — antique, medieval, and, merely, modern and contemporary, from Protagoras to Foucault and Habermas but also Aristote, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Hegel — the author shows how political thought has developed around the major idea of sovereignty, which our time, especially in Europe, is about to transform radically.

This work is a extensively referenced way to undertand the political problems of our time.
