Most widely held works by Cary J Nederman
Policraticus : of the frivolities of courtiers and the footprints of philosophers by John( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 620 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

Beyond the persecuting society : religious toleration before the Enlightenment by John Christian Laursen( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a Myth - easily shattered - that Western societies since the Enlightenment have been dedicated to the ideal of protecting the differences between individuals and groups, and another - too readily accepted - that before the rise of secularism in the modern period, intolerance and persecution held sway throughout Europe. In Beyond the Persecuting Society John Christian Laursen, Cary J. Nederman, and nine other scholars dismantle this second generalization. If intolerance and religious persecution have been at the root of some of the greatest suffering in human history, it is nevertheless the case that toleration was practiced and theorized in medieval and early modern Europe on a scale few have realized."--BOOK JACKET. "Beyond the Persecuting Society constructs a mosaic of pieces of the history of toleration in the Middle Ages, the long sixteenth century, and the seventeenth century. Christians and Jews, the English, French, Germans, Dutch, Swiss, Italians, and Spanish had their proponents of and experiments with tolerance well before John Locke penned his famous Letter Concerning Toleration, the authors demonstrate. Moving from Abelard to Aphra Behn, from the apology for the gentiles of the fourteenth-century Talmudic scholar Menahem ben Solomon Ha-Me'iri to the rejection of intolerance in the "New Israel" of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Beyond the Persecuting Society offers a detailed and decisive correction to a vision of the past as any less complex in its embrace and abhorrence of diversity than the present."--Jacket

Talking democracy : historical perspectives on rhetoric and democracy( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In their efforts to uncover the principles of a robust conception of democracy, theorists of deliberative democracy place a premium on the role of political expression - public speech and reasoned debate - as the key to democratic processes. They also frequently hark back to historical antecedents (as in the Habermasian invocation of the "public sphere" of eighteenth-century bourgeois society and the Arendtian valorization of the classical Athenian polis) in their quest to establish that deliberative procedures are more than "merely theoretical" and instead have a practical application

John of Salisbury by Cary J Nederman( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John of Salisbury (1115/20-1180) has earned a considerable and well-deserved reputation as an original philosopher as well as a prominent commentator on the vast intellectual and cultural changes experienced by twelfth-century Europe. The first comprehensive examination of John's life and career in over fifty years, this study draws on the wealth of new texts and scholarship that have emerged during that period. Although introductory in nature, the study will also appeal to specialists in twelfth-century history and philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

Annotation
Speculum sermonis : interdisciplinary reflections on the medieval sermon( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speculum Sermonis is an anthology of essays about medieval sermons in the Christian East and West. It aims to reveal precisely how sermons inform different disciplines (for instance, social and Church history, literature, musicology) and how the methodologies of different disciplines inform sermons. Sermons can, for instance, provide evidence for a reconstruction of medieval liturgy; reciprocally, the field of liturgiology investigates sermons as one aspect of Church performance. The volume's title image of the mirror and the reference to medieval specula convey the idea of multiple reflections: the sermons' on culture and the disciplines' on sermons. Because the contributors to Speculum Sermonis come from a variety of fields, the essays here collectively provide a rich historical and contemporary academic context for reading the medieval sermon."--BOOK JACKET
Princely virtues in the Middle Ages, 1200-1500( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western political thought in dialogue with Asia by Takashi Shōgimen( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the rise of globalization and coinciding increase in cultural clashes among diverse nations, it has become eminently clear to scholars of political thought that there exists a critical gap in the knowledge of non-Western philosophies and how Western thought has been influenced by them. This gap has led to a severely diminished capacity of both state and nonstate actors to communicate effectively on a global scale. The political theorists, area scholars, and intellectual historians gathered here by Takashi Shogimen and Cary J. Nederman examine the exchange of political ideas between Europe and Asia from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century. They establish the need for comparative political thought, showing that in order to fully grasp the origins and achievements of the West, historians of political thought must incorporate Asian political discourse and ideas into their understanding. By engaging in comparative studies, this volume proves the necessity of a cross-disciplinary approach in guiding the study of the global history of political thought
