What was their job?
What are their greatest archievements in life
Montesquieu made great contributions to the theory of separation of powers, whose main features were:
- Clearly and specifically assigns each essential function of the State to a body which, by its composition, is best suited to fulfill: it is called functional rationality.
- Provides a model of universal validity, not limited to a particular state, but applicable to any of them.
- Applies own scientific methods of Newton, epitomized the result of the balance of power among state organs is individual freedom.
What are their political thought and beliefs
Carmen Iglesias study on the thought of Montesquieu is a classic of contemporary Spanish historiography, now reissued respecting the original version (1984), to which were added a timeline, a list of the author's works and indexes.
To assess their merit, we must take into account the scarcity of solvent historians among us in such a difficult area as inevitable: the history of thought and political ideas. Moreover, in a historiography as Spanish, not given to dealing with "external" issues, the work of Carmen Iglesias is an obvious milestone, highlighted by familiarity with moving among the challenging French sources and quality of the final result .
