Polemics on the State in the Political Culture of France in the Second Half of the XVIth Century
This qualification thesis proposes an approach to describe political culture of XVIth century France via ‘Six books of a Commonweale’ by Jean Bodin in russian language. In Russian-speaking context this Bodin’s treatise is underexplored: ‘Six books of a Commonweale’ has never been translated into Russian. Making a panoramic overview on previous research tradition, we would show the place of ‘Six books of a Commonweale’ in the context mentioned above. On the one hand, by translating and contextualizing the first book out of six in Russian-speaking tradition. On the other hand, by tracing of the history of the concept ‘république’ in XVI century we suggest rethinking the polemics on the State of XVI century France.
