The concept “people” in the modern European political thought: Hobbes, Spinoza, Pufendorf
... goals. This, in turn, leads to the rationalisation of politics and, as a consequence, to the rejection of one of the most powerful mystical and theological abstractions of the late Middle Ages — the concept “people” as a kind of mystical body.
