Politica By Johannes Althusius
Translated, Abridged, and with an Introduction by Frederick S. Carney
Foreword by Daniel J. Elazar

Political Thought

Drawing deeply from Aristotle and biblical teaching, Politica presents a unique vision of the commonwealth as a harmonious ordering of natural associations. According to Althusius, the purpose of the state is to protect and encourage social life. The family is the most natural of human associations, and all other unions derive from it. Power and authority properly grow from more local to more general associations.
