Marsilius of Padua on Law - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 182
Law/Laws/Marsilius/Höffe: The defender of peace(1) acknowledges a natural right. But he claims (...) that law in the proper sense cannot be derived from it.
This is rather due to the state legislator. Marsilius represents, here comparable to Thomas, a moderate legal positivism: The legislator may not enact arbitrary laws; these should rather correspond to the useful and just, which Marsilius also expects from the legislator, the totality of the citizens. >Legislation/Marsilius.
