These works are organized to reveal the influence of Cicero's writings upon the history of legal thought including St. Thomas, the Renaissance, Montesquieu and the U.S. Founding fathers. Finally, the articles include discussions of Cicero's influence upon central themes in modern legal thought, including legal skepticism, republicanism, mixed government, private property, natural law, conservatism and rhetoric. The editor offers an extensive introduction, placing these articles in the context of an overall view of Cicero's contribution to modern legal thinking.
