Résumé
The first volume of this book explores the idea of legitimate property since ancient times. Beginning with the work of Plato and Aristotle, it traces the evolution of thinking about the origins and the grounding of (private) property in the Latin West. It shows the cumulative impact of the ancient Greeks and the Stoics, the Roman Law, the early Christian Fathers and the belief in natural law. It traces the development of these ideas through the medieval period (from Augustine to Wycliffe). In the early modern period, it assesses the impact of thinking in the Reformation and the Counter-reformation. It evaluates the work of Grotius, Hobbes and Pufendorf, (as well as Harrington and Winstanley), closing with a re-assessment of Locke. The conclusion is that the commonsense claims made for a private property regime in the modern period would be recognisable but unacceptable to most thinkers before (and perhaps including) Locke.
