Jeffrey Dymond

Jeffrey Dymond, Dr.

Jeffrey Dymond works on political and legal thought from the medieval through to the early modern period, and especially on the Renaissance re-introduction and appropriation of ancient Greek and Roman ideas.  He received an MA from University College London in 2013 and completed a PhD in 2021 at the University of California, Los Angeles, with a dissertation on the reception of Cicero's concept of the civitas among Italian Renaissance political writers from c.1250 to c.1550.  An article on the reception of Book 6 of Polybius’s Histories in Renaissance Florence, and in Machiavelli’s Discorsi in particular, appeared in the Journal of the History of Ideas in January 2021.  On the Just City project, he will work on the third subproject, investigating the role of Ciceronian thinking about justice and human association in shaping early modern natural and international law, as visible primarily in the work of the jurist Alberico Gentili (1552-1608).
