The statesman's book of John of Salisbury, being the fourth, fifth, and sixth books, and selections from the seventh and eighth books, of the Policraticus by John( Book )

127 editions published between 1452 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John of Salisbury (c. 1115-1180) was the foremost political theorist of his age. He was trained in scholastic theology and philosophy at Paris, and his writings are invaluable for summarizing many of the metaphysical speculations of his time. The Policraticus is his main work, and is regarded as the first complete work of political theory to be written in the Latin Middle Ages. Cary Nederman's new edition and translation, currently the only version available in English, is primarily aimed at undergraduate students of the history of political thought and medieval history. His new translation shows how important this text is in understanding the mores, forms of conduct and beliefs of the most powerful and learned segments of twelfth century Western Europe

"John of Salisbury has long been celebrated as one of the foremost humanists of the twelfth-century renaissance, an erudite correspondent, legal expert, historian, poet, diplomat and political thinker, and clerk to two successive archbishops of Canterbury, Theobald and Thomas Becket. His 'Metalogicon', ostensibly a defence of the role of logic and of Aristotle's 'Organon' in the educational syllabus of the day, makes a powerful argument for an educational system of real practical utility for society, one whose intellectual coherence and rigour should underpin political morality and rational governance. As such, it has been seen to stand alongside the more famous 'Policraticus' as an integral part of the intellectual contribution of one of Europe's great political theorists. Based on John's own experiences as a student and a teacher, the treatise offers unique evidence of the educational system of twelfth-century Paris at a critical stage in the early development of the schools, and of the earliest reception of the Aristotelian texts of the 'new logic'."--Back cover
