Studies in Historico-Political culture of Antiquity and Humanism

Part One of this book firstly stresses the need for radical rethinking and in-depth reinterpretation of history. The author then concisely features the core of his theory. In a special chapter, he analyses some intriguing experiences of the Athenian-Spartan relation at their historical height where the birth of new doctrines concerning the international law and their later recurrencies in modern political practice are unfolded. Also a paradigmatic case of international economic law in a quaint Athenian arrangement appears as traceable to modern-day experience. The author finishes Part One by reasoning on "perpetual historical merits" as this notion was comprehended for Greek and Roman patterns. In Part Two, a stunning range and peculiar characteristics of continental European historico-political culture are revealed in a manifold and unique panorama of Renaissance-humanistic and early Enlightenment publications. The array of title-page-texts with annotations and the special excursuses provide a wide and splendid horizon of Latin and German - mostly unknown - works. They offer an exceptional scientific and cultural experience for every reader (not only for scholars or connoisseurs) also by the pure review of this "exhibition" till now unprecedented.
