Political Theory of Christine de Pizan

Overview

"Few medieval or Renaissance political writers, male or female, wrote more works on politics than Christine de Pizan; none of them addressed audiences so varied in class or gender. Yet until now there has been no comprehensive full-length study of Christine de Pizan's political thought. With The Political Theory of Christine de Pizan, Kate Forhan rectifies this oversight, situating de Pizan in the history of political thought while discussing traditional concerns of political theorists, such as justice, obligation, law, equality, and just war.

Overview

"Few medieval or Renaissance political writers, male or female, wrote more works on politics than Christine de Pizan; none of them addressed audiences so varied in class or gender. Yet until now there has been no comprehensive full-length study of Christine de Pizan's political thought. With The Political Theory of Christine de Pizan, Kate Forhan rectifies this oversight, situating de Pizan in the history of political thought while discussing traditional concerns of political theorists, such as justice, obligation, law, equality, and just war. Forhan also addresses the question of whether Pizan's work is original or derivative: whether she is a theorist or 'merely' a political writer." This book will be of interest to political theorists and political scientists: medieval historians: historians of women and gender: and scholars of comparative literature.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Christine de Pizan wrote more than ten books on political theory between 1400 and 1429. Forhan (political science, Siena College) analyzes her theory and situates it within the broader political thinking of medieval Europe. Writing primarily to correct the previous neglect de Pizan's work has suffered in the history of political theory, Forhan addresses the books collectively and thematically, focusing on issues of justice, law, and social class. She argues that the work of de Pizan demonstrates a sustained and consistent theory that is relevant to today's world. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
