The seigneurial repression unleashed against the peasants increased in
intensity throughout the 16th century. The political result, in Prussia and Russia,
was an Absolutism of the East, coeval with that of the West yet basically different
in lineage. The Absolutist State in the West was the redeployed political
apparatus of a feudal class which had accepted the commutation of dues. It was
a compensation for the disappearance of serfdom, in .the context of an
increasingly urban economy ...

It also tended to be catholic political authorities who then adopted an absolutist
position in order to undermine a protestant constitutionalist position.1 The
opposite, however, was the case in Ireland, where the catholic community of the
Pale held to a mixed polity position and was opposed by the absolutist
pretensions of a reformed protestant administration. As both Ciaran Brady and
James Murray have noted, the Dublin community was to combine a defence of its
customary rights with ...

CHAPTER 1 The Absolutist State, Raison d'Etat and the Emergence of the
Apolitical Sphere (Barclay, D'Aubigne) Two epochal events mark the beginning
and the end of classical Absolutism. Its point of departure was the religious civil
war. The modern State had laboriously fought its way out of the religious
disorders; not until these had been overcome did it achieve its full form and
delineation. A second civil war — the French Revolution — brought the Absolutist
State to an abrupt ...

Absolutist. System. of. Rule. IN THE LAST CHAPTER, I suggested that the rise of
towns in the medieval West sharply differentiated the social, economic, and
cultural context of the emerging Standestaat from that of the preceding feudal
system of rule. No equally dramatic contextual change suggests itself as having

between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in such countries as France,
Spain, ...

At the boundaries of pertinent reference frames, where grounds for evaluation
unique to those frames exhaust themselves, we have no absolutist way to
adjudicate between contending frames. For the relativist, where standards of
evaluation areexhausted atthe bounds ofreference frames, the searchfor
pertinentabsolute standards makes nosense. Global relativists urgethatfor all
reference frames, no absolute standardsfor adjudicationexist. Local relativists
urgethatfor only some ...

complex implications of the absolutist's distinction in detail but merely point out
one of them: the absolutist cannot accept that there is a context C3 (which is "
more general" than C2) in which some logical truth of C1 is not a logical truth. If
he were to accept this, he would admit that his choice of C2 to distinguish
between logical truths and factual truths in C1, is plainly arbitrary; hence his
criterion would break down. It follows that the absolutist must believe that there is
some context, ...
