New Intellectual History Books from Brill’s HEPCT Series

Brill’s History of European Political and Constitutional Thought Series is delighted to announce the publication of two new exciting volumes in intellectual history.

Crisis and Renewal in the History of European Political Thought (2021), edited by Cesare Cuttica and László Kontler advances a better, more historical and contextual, manner to consider not only the present, but also the future of ‘crisis’ and ‘renewal’ as key concepts of our political language as well as fundamental categories of interpretation. This volume provides a historically informed analysis of what it means to reflect on and theorise about crisis.

Contributors are: Erica Benner, Niall Bond, Nathaniel Boyd, Andrea Catanzaro, Patricia Chiantera-Stutte, Alberto Clerici, Cesare Cuttica, Annalisa Furia, George Gallwey, Kai Gräf, Ferenc Hörcher, Paschalis M. Kitromilides, László Kontler, Adriana Luna-Fabritius, Clara Maier, Janine Murphy, Adrian O’Connor, and Mark Somos.

The Diplomatic Enlightenment: Spain, Europe, and the Age of Speculation (2021), by Edward Jones Corredera, reconfigures the study of the origins of the Enlightenment in the Spanish Empire. Challenging dominant interpretations of the period, this book shows that early eighteenth-century Spanish authors turned to Enlightenment ideas to reinvent Spain’s role in the European balance of power.
