A two-volume study of political thought from the late thirteenth to the end of the sixteenth century. Overall, Skinner's work has left me very unsatisfied. While his reputation might justify the price tag of his books, the quality of his thinking does not. Skinner is a good historian, but his achievement in this book falls short of his aspirations and he has left way too many obvious questions unanswered.

The Foundations of Modern Political Thought is a two-volume work of intellectual history by Quentin Skinner, published in 1978. The work traces the conceptual origins of modern politics by investigating the history of political thought in the West at the turn of the medieval and early modern periods, from the 13th to the 16th centuries. It represents the culmination of the contextualist approach to the history of ideas which Skinner and his colleagues in the Cambridge School had pioneered in the 1960s.

We begin with the two thinkers who laid the foundation for modern social contract theory, Hobbes and Locke. In the second part of the course we turn to Hume and Rousseau-the former who rejected the idea of a social contract and the latter who radicalized the concept.

Modern Political Thought, in which distinguished contributors examined its. impact, almost thirty years later.

A two-volume study of political thought from the late thirteenth to the end of the sixteenth century, the decisive period of transition from medieval to modern political theory. The work is intended to be both an introduction to the period for students, and a presentation and justification of a particular approach to the interpretation of historical texts. He thus presents the history not as a procession of 'classic texts' but are more readily intelligible.
