Tyranny and Law in Thomas More's declamation in reply to Lucian's tyrannicide

Resultado de la investigación: Contribución a una conferenciaArtículo

Resumen

The analysis of More's declamation in response to Lucian's Tyrannicide, despite its rhetorical and literary character, may be useful for deducing the importance that More attributes to Law, since its existence and healthy efficacy are the exact opposite of tyranny, as laws are captive to tyranny and are substituted by terror. Tyrannicide, which More accepts as implied in the case, as well as the exiling and overthrowing of the tyrant, are meritorious only when they allow the city's recovery of freedom and the Rule of Law.
