Chapter Summary

Vattel's book on the law of nations or the principles of natural law applied to the conduct and affairs of nations and sovereigns will never be moved, even in times when the general spirit will be the most hijacked studies speculative. This chapter examines the language (Part II) and style (Part III) Vattel to try to better understand the permanence, but also the historical contingencies of his work. It demonstrates that the permanence of Vattel actually lies in its language and in its style but for very different reasons than they leave seem contrary to what has so long been carried by generations of internationalists. The semantics of Vattel in the background reveals the founding concepts of his right of people who still continue to fuel the debate on public international law. The original text of the chapter is in French.
