Example text

Within about fifty years, Pufendorf’s work fell into disuse. Indeed, it may be that as specific official identities, that of the lawyer and physician, achieved institutional, even paradigmatic status, an ethics of office had clear competitors. To an extent, natural law was naturalised, becoming a matrix of drives and material conditions that contextualised conduct. Mandeville had indicated what might be done. And although some formal doctrines of natural law might still be largely doctrines of office, duty gradually ceased to be coextensive with morality.

13 Plato’s notion of excellence was not of the human being per se, let alone autonomous agent, the ‘Self’, but of something more specific. The Republic was less about the ‘individual’s’ way of life than the conditions necessary for the philosopher’s. 14 Yet, the anachronism of attributing to Plato a quasi-Kantian individualism nevertheless illustrates the variable scope of office. Cicero’s focus was on a civic aristocracy and the active life of citizenship. Plato’s was more on the just claims of a tiny aristocracy of the mind, upon the responsibilities of contemplation.

The words in a vocabulary were more than just contingent labels. Sometimes there were attempts to rank offices in order to avoid contradictory duties, and an awareness that responsibilities might collide was persistent throughout the period under discussion. 44 Most pertinently for this study, there is occasional appeal to love of country as over-riding or resolving conflicting duties (chapter 7). Yet asserted hierarchies of office were often ad hoc and it was the major function of casuistry to negotiate the tensions, conflicts and uncertainties of the ethics of office (below and chapter 8).
