De re publica: Vom Staat (Reclams Rote Reihe - Fremdsprachentexte)

By Marcus Tullius Cicero

Monarchie, Aristokratie oder Demokratie – welche ist die beste Staatsform? Bricht nicht früher oder später doch eine jede zusammen? In »De re publica« lässt Cicero die Mitglieder des Scipionenkreises über eben dieses brisante Thema diskutieren. Die Mischverfassung der Römischen Republik sei die stabilste von allen und insofern die bestmögliche, so das Fazit. Aber welche Eigenschaften sollte der ideale Politiker mitbringen?
Nicht zuletzt weil das Thema von Ciceros staatsphilosophischer Schrift heute nicht minder aktuell ist, ist ihre Lektüre in den meisten Bundesländern fest im Lehrplan verankert.

Texte in der Originalsprache, mit Übersetzungen schwieriger Wörter am Fuß jeder Seite, Nachwort und Literaturhinweisen.

highly recommended.

review for ielanguages blog:
1. A Comparative functional Grammar of French, Spanish and Italian by way of O. W. Heatwole (1949) you'll be capable of purchase it from third-party on Amazon; presently a paperback variation from 1977 is offered for $15.99. (I don’t understand if the 1977 variation is any varied from the 1949 version because it may perhaps simply be a reprint.) The ebook used to be edited via Mario Pei and within the foreword, he explains why a booklet of this sort is needed:

“But how marvelous would it not be if there have been just a comparative grammar of the most Romance languages, that might permit me to check at a look a rule within the language with which i'm such a lot conversant in the corresponding rule within the language i do know least!”

This paintings is a solution to the awake and subconscious wishes of those scholars and instructor of Romance languages. it's a publication the need of which has lengthy been felt, yet in some way not anyone has ever taken the difficulty to provide it.

There is a few inconsistency within the indisputable fact that Departments of Romance Languages are way more universal in our procedure of upper schooling than separate Departments of French, Spanish and Italian, but nowhere are the Romance Languages taught as a unit from the comparative attitude that may enable the learner to prevent significant confusions and significant pitfalls. studying 3 similar languages immediately should still definitely turn out not more tough than studying them individually.
