Pufendorf, Samuel, The Present State of Germany (The Works of Samuel Pufendorf; Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics), Edited and with an Introduction by Michael J. Seidler; Translated from the German by Edmund Bohun, 1696 (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2007) (From the book jacket: "The Present State of Germany, one of Samuel Pufendorf's earliest and most important works, was first published in 1667 under the pseudonym Severinus de Monambano. Its blunt, colorful, and unapologetic challenge to mainstream German constitutional law made it enormously controversial as soon as it appeared, and its author was both vilified and exalted in the acrimonious debate that followed. It became one of the most reprinted books of the late seventeenth century.).
Pufendorf, Samuel, Two Books of the Elements of Universal Jurisprudence (The Works of Samuel Pufendorf; Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics), Edited and with an Introduction by Thomas Behme; Translated from the German by William Abbott Oldfather, 1931 (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2009) (From the book jacket: "The appearance of Samuel Pufendorf's earliest work, Two Books of the Elements of Universal Jurisprudence, inaugurated the modern natural-law movement in the German-speaking world. It also established Pufendorf as a major figure in natural law and laid the foundation for his later works, which were to sweep across Europe and North America.").
Pufendorf, Samuel, The Whole Duty of Man, According to the Law of Nature (The Works of Samuel Pufendorf; Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics), Edited and with an Introduction by Ian Hunter & David Saunders; Two Discourse and a Commentary by Jean Barbeyrac; Translated from the German by David Saunders, 1691 (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2007) ("Man is a Creature not only most sollicitious for the Preservation of Himself; but has Himself also so nice an Estimation and Value, that to diminish any thing thereof does frequently move him as great Indignation, as if a Mischief were done to his Body or Estate, Nay, there seems to him to be somewhat of Dignity in the Appellation of Man: so that the last and most efficacious Argument to curb the Arrogance of insulting Men, is usually, I am not a Dog, but a Man as well as your self. Since then Human Nature is the same in us all, and since no Man will or can cheerfully join a Society with any, by whom he is not at least to be esteemed equally as a Man and as a Partaker of the same Common Nature: It follows that, among those Duties which Men owe to each other, this obtains the second Place, That every man esteem and treat another as naturally equal to himself, or as one who is a Man as well as he." Id. at 100.).
