Republicanism, Sinophilia, and historical writing : Thomas Gordon (c. 1691-1750) and his "History of England" by Giovanni Tarantino( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Gordon (c.1691-1750) was a prolific Scottish journalist and pamphleteer working in eighteenth-century London. His works circulated in a variety of forms and for many years in Europe and the British North American colonies. Gordon's conception of 'republicanism' was essentially that of a secular and tolerant society free from providential designs; his works reflected a lifelong commitment to defending the rule of law, the balance of powers, and the rotation of representative bodies. This study sets out to produce a fuller profile of Gordon, to investigate his specific and controversial contribution as a political theorist, and finally to present for the first time an annotated edition of his unfinished and unpublished (mainly medieval) History of England: a highly readable text whose main metanarrative theme is the struggle between 'the Government of Will' and 'the Government of Laws'- with the struggle between 'God's Will' and 'the Will of the Clergy' as an essential rhetorical subtheme. The book also deals with a hitherto unexplored aspect of Gordon's thinking, his Sinophilia. Gordon's 'sensible Chinese' is drawn in as a rhetorical tool to voice bitter judgements on both Catholic and Protestant inconsistencies. By resorting to the utopian model of a distant Orient, Gordon aimed to expose the severe impact on Western societies of clerical interference in State affairs, concluding that 'men who are oppressed, or who foresee inevitable oppression, will be naturally thinking of the means of security and escape', or possibly dreaming about distant civilizations."--Publisher's website

Through your eyes : religious alterity and the early modern western imagination( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The focus of Through Your Eyes: Religious Alterity and the Early Modern Western Imaginations is the (mostly Western) understanding, representation and self-critical appropriation of the "religious other" between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. Mutually constitutive processes of selfing/othering are observed through the lenses of creedal Jews, a bhakti Brahmin, a widely translated Morisco historian, a collector of Western and Eastern singularia, Christian missionaries in Asia, critical converts, toleration theorists, and freethinkers: in other words, people dwelling in an 'in-between' space which undermines any binary conception of the Self and the Other. The genesis of the volume was in exchanges between eight international scholars and the two editors, intellectual historian Giovanni Tarantino and anthropologist Paola von Wyss-Giacosa, who share an interest in comparatism, debates over toleration, and history of emotions"--
