Abstract : The first objective of this issue is to remedy the weakness of the francophone research on Leonardo Bruni and civic humanism and to contribute to a reevaluation of Francesco Guicciardini. Although most Hans Baron's seminal thesis have been convincingly criticized, they remain stimulating: Leonardo Bruni's texts do not reflect the real political order of that time but do embody a civic ideal that systematize and reformulate republicanism. The reinvention of politics that had begun a century before in Florence could therefore have a crucial impact on the development of modern political thought. A careful text analysis shows nevertheless that there is not one unified, but contrasted republicanisms, which differ among others on the social question and on the alternative self-government v. representative government.
