“Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.”

― Montesquieu, The Spirit of the Laws

 

Charles-Louis de Montesquieu was a French political philosopher who is known for his works on political theory.

 

His most famous work was ‘Spirit of the Laws’ – a work so influential that world leaders such as Catherine the Great and the United States founding fathers applied the methods taught in this book to their culture’s future. This famed work found itself on the infamous ‘Prohibited Book Index’ in 1751 even though it was well-respected and well-read around the world.

 

Montesquieu lists a few major points in his work; points that have resonated with government for centuries. These include:

  • Separation of power
  • Liberty and democracy are one in the same
  • The point of civil and criminal law is to ensure personal security
  • Qualities and flaws of governmental types

 

‘Spirit of the Laws’ along with other works of Montesquieu were published as collection in 1765 by Arkstee and Merkus in Amsterdam. This six-volume set is notable for the inclusion of impressive, folding maps – world map and Europe.
