Rezension:

Sir Robert Filmer (d. 1653) was a major English political theorist of the early modern period. John Locke singled out Filmer's ideas for criticism in his Two Treatises of Government, a foundational text of modern liberal and democratic thinking. Filmer argued that the government in every state must hold unlimited sovereign power, and not be accountable to the people. He contended that the state at first developed from the family - not from popular election - and claimed that governments still wield power that is essentially patriarchal. Cesare Cuttica's excellent book is easily the best and fullest modern account of Filmer, his patriarchalist ideas, and his historical context. Well researched and engagingly written, it deserves a wide readership among people interested in English history and in the history of political thought. -- Professor Johann Sommerville. Cuttica's book offers an accessible guide to Filmer's thought useful for students of intellectual history. -- Jacqueline Rose. Intellectual History Review, 23:2 Cuttica's book is a very good case study, which hopefully will change the perception of Filmer's theory, which until now has been seen through the lenses of its critic, John Locke. -- Endre Sashalmi. European Review of History: Revue In this splendid study, Cesare Cuttica uses contextual and biographical methods to enhance our understanding of Sir Robert Filmer's intellectual life and his contribution to political debates in seventeenth-century England. This book can be highly recommended and deserves to be widely read. -- David L. Smith. The Journal of the Historical Association Cesare Cuttica's work is the most comprehensive and convincing criticism of such an interpretation. This is undoubtedly a brilliant study of Filmer's political thought. -- Takuya Furuta. Monarch and Patriot Volume 37, Page 8 This extremely rich book is a major contribution to our knowledge of Filmer , and more broadly of patriarchy in the seventeenth century , primarily in England. [Pierre Lurbe; RSEAA XVII-XVIII 70 (2013)] -- Pierre Lurbe. RSEAA XVII-XVIII 70 Cuttica succeeds in presenting his reader with innovative, clear and well-argued information based on his contextualisation and biographical methods. In this way, he provides the reader with new insights and contributes significantly to our understanding of seventeenth-century English intellectual and political history. It is a major contribution to current studies of political thought. -- C.A. (Annemieke) Romein. The Seventeenth Century ...Cuttica has given us a Filmer with a new significance, and that itself is an unexpected and most welcomed contribution. -- GORDON SCHOCHET. American Historical Review. Feb2015, Vol. 120 Issue 1, p323-324. 2p.
