Utopia and reform in the Enlightenment by Franco Venturi( Book )

54 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this detailed study of the republican tradition in the development of the Enlightenment, the central problem of utopia and reform is crystallized in a discussion of the right to punish. Describing the political situation in Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the author shows how the old republics in Italy, Poland and Holland stagnated and were unable to survive in the age of absolutism. The Philosophes discussed the ideal of republicanism against this background. They were particularly influenced by the political and religious radicalism of John Toland, which had survived the English Restoration and was then reaching Europe. Professor Venturi traces the debate on the penal laws and the attempt to relate utopian ideas of society to the practical problem of dealing with man in society, which culminated in the assertion by many Philosophes that an unjust social system necessitated harsh penal laws, thereby rejecting the possibility of reform

16 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Franco Venturi, premier European interpreter of the Enlightenment, is still completing his acclaimed multivolume work Settecento Riformatore, a grand synthesis of Western history before the French Revolution as seen through the perceptive eyes of Italian observers. R. Burr Litchfield now makes available in English translation the third volume of Settecento Riformatore and first part of The End of the Old Regime in Europe. Here the reader will discover the lively world of Italian journalists, polemicists, chroniclers, and commentators, who followed with intelligence and growing awareness the great developments of their age, from the Greek uprising of 1770, the Pugachev revolt in Russia and unrest of peasants in Bohemia, through the first partition of Poland, the reactions of Struensee in Denmark and Gustavus III in Sweden, constitutional troubles in Geneva, the crisis of reform in France with the dismissal of Turgot, and events in England and America at the outbreak of the American Revolution. Thus began the outer circle of revolutions that after another two decades would find their epicenter in Paris in 1789"--Publishers description

On crimes and punishments by Cesare Beccaria( Book )

78 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Beccaria's On Crimes and Punishments and other writings presents a radically new interpretation of his thought. Drawing on recent Italian scholarship, Richard Bellamy shows how Beccaria wove together the various political languages of the Enlightenment into a novel synthesis, and argues that his political philosophy, often regarded as no more than a precursor of Bentham's, combines republican, contractarian, romantic and liberal as well as utilitarian themes. The result is a complex theory of punishment that derives from a sophisticated analysis of the role of the state and the nature of human motivation in commercial society. The translation used in this edition is based on the fifth Italian edition, and provides english-speaking readers with Beccaria's own order of his text for the first time. A number of pieces from his writings on political economy and the history of civilisation which were not previously available in English are also included. -- Back cover
