Abstract

This article provides a concise introduction and brief guide to relevant sources on the concept of property in the history of political thought. The article traces continuities and discontinuities in political thinking on property since antiquity, encompassing classical, Christian, early modern, Enlightenment, Marxist, and anarchist thought. Special emphasis is given to the debates on the changing conceptions and normative valences of property at the interface between classical-Christian moral economies and modern-secular commercial economies.
