Oresme's Livre de Politiques and the France of Charles V: Transactions, APS (vol. 75, part 1)
Susan M. Babbitt
Charles V was a scholarly king who commissioned French versions of ancient & medieval treatises for the express purpose of guiding his government. To translate Aristotle’s “Politics” he chose Nicole Oresme, an ingenious philosopher whose aptitude & attitudes made him an effective supporter of the Valois monarchy. Oresme’s task was to take his text out of the language of a small but international community of scholars & adapt it to serve the French people, making it accessible to a new & broad audience. Contents: Oresme & his Version of the “Politics”; Oresme & the Commentary Tradition of the “Politics”; Nat. Sovereignty & the Hierarchy of Communities; The Public State & the Common Good; The “Politics,” the “Livre de Politiques,” & the Church; Aristotle, Oresme, & Gallicanism; Conclusion; & Bibliography.
