Chapter Summary

The Law of Vattel is a book that easily lends itself to contradictory readings because it carries many dualisms that appear in the quartered antagonistic directions. Vattel continues to move on different planes during his people's law. In this short study, it will simply indicate the sequence of different dualisms which were subsequently considered consistent with his little project overall or with a modern conception of international law. The law of Vattel is the right of States, not only in terms of a law between states, but of all their rights and duties, as these are for internal use within the State, or for external use, in relations with other states. The law of nations is a work of modern rationalist period goal, as all the works of this period; he conveys with it the medieval heritage, Christian and scholastic. The original text of the chapter is in French.
