Nicolas Oresme: violence, langage et raison politique


  • Piron, S.


Il y a, pense Nicolas Oresme, comme une fatalite de la guerre et de la violence. C'est elle qui justifie la division irreductible de l'espace politique en entites souveraines. Seule une royaute juste aux pouvoirs moderes, aux appetits mesures, peut y porter remede. Mais il convient aussi, pour eviter les risques de troubles interieurs, qu'elle soit successorale, et la conitnuite dynastique instantanee. En verite, une tres large part de sa pensee politique se devoile a partir de cette thematique. C'est ce que l'on voudrait tenter d'exposer dans les pages qui viennent.
