Histoire du lexique politique français: émergence des corpus aristotélicien et augustinien à la fin du moyen âge

Autore: Olivier Bertrand
In: I libri di Viella. 128

A part of the French vocabulary of political science was born during the reign of Charles V (1364-1380), thanks to the major translation projects of the philosophical and religious works ordered by the king of France. Translated into French for the first time, too, were Aristotle’s Politics and Ethics as well as The City of God by Saint Augustine. This essay analyzes especially the emergence of a specific lexicon for politics through the work of the translators Nicole Oresme and Raoul de Presles.
