- Not available
In the first examination of the Defensor Pacis in almost fifty years, Cary J. Nederman demonstrates Marsiglio of Padua's continuing relevance, connecting his philosophy to contemporary debates about community, identity, difference, and political participation. Community and Consent describes Marsiglio's attempt to resolve the tension in medieval Christian political thought created by the apparently competing standards of reason (thought to be the province of a few) and volition (the realm of every individual). Marsiglio argued for a harmonization of reason and will, regarding neither as sufficient to authorize political conduct. The book includes historical and biographical information not previously available in English, as well as a survey and critique of the current state of Marsiglio scholarship in all languages.
