The Law of Nations 1758 – Read By Vox Una

The Law of Nations 1758 Chapter 1: 1-12

The Law of Nations 1758 by Emer de Vattel is possibly the most meaningful legal treaties on nationhood that we can possibly bring into the modern discourse. This video contains the 12 points in chapter 1 of the treaties and follows the preliminaries which you can find also on my channel. I highly recommend anyone download the pdf of the full work as I have not included the expansive passages provided by the notation on the paragraphs read. – Vox Una


“THE merits and increasing utility of this admirable work have not
as yet been sufficiently known, or justly appreciated. It has been generally supposed that it is only adapted for the study of sovereigns and statesmen, and in that view certainly the author’s excellent preface points out its pre-eminent importance. But it is of infinitely more extended utility. It contains a practical collection of ethics, principles, and rules of conduct to be observed and pursued, as well by private individuals as by states, and these of the utmost practical importance to the well-being, happiness, and ultimate and permanent advantage and benefit of all mankind; and therefore ought to be studied by every gentleman of liberal education, and by youth, in whom the best moral principles should be inculcated.” – From the Preface written by J. CHITTY
