Remigio dei Girolami—The Order of Love

(p.293) 11 Remigio dei Girolami—The Order of Love
The Common Good in Late Medieval Political Thought


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Remigio dei Girolami's political thought through his political writings which provide some indication of the wider impact of the scholastic reception of Aristotle's Ethics and Politics in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. It notes that Remigio's political writings can also serve as an index to the scholastic understanding of the relationship between the individual and the common good. It observes however, that Remigio's references to the common good as a metaphysical principle of goodness are noticeably sparse and when he does discuss the good which all things seek, it is for its connection with hierarchical order of love. It reports that Remigio states that all things have a natural love for the good in common.

Keywords:   Remigio dei Girolami, political thought, Aristotle, common good, goodness, love, natural love
