The Classics of International Law free pdf Excerpt from The Classics of International Law: De Jure Naturae Et Gentium Dissertationes In his Elementorum jurisprudentiae universalis libri tres, published in 1660, Samuel von Pufendorf denied the existence of a positive jus gentium (Law of Nations), distinct from the jus naturale. He maintained therein that States were universally subject to the Law of Nature only- in addition there were, of course, rights based upon treaties, and also customs observed between civilized States, but (said he) these treaty rights were valid only between the States that had concluded the treaty, and a State might at any time renounce these customs- such conduct would admittedly expose the State to evils - such as reprisals and censure - but Pufendorf does not seem to attach great importance to these evils, and (as he by means of a few illustrations proceeds to show) they have at different times failed to deter governments and generals. This doctrine, which in 1660 Pufendorf, as a young scholar, had expounded in his Elementa jurisprudentiae universalis (Lib. I, definitio 13, 24-26), he restated in 1672 in his great work De jure naturae et gentium (Lib. II, cap. 3, 23)- and we may readily imagine that the authority of the famous writer won many adherents to his teachings. His doctrine, however, was not only erroneous- it was dangerous. According to it, it would not be possible for a custom in harmony with the actual progress of civilization gradually to assume the force of law- it failed, moreover, to recognize (1) the possibility of extracting a general principle of law from important stipulations recurring more and more frequently in international treaties, and (2) the fact that treaties, directly based upon generally accepted legal principles and concluded between the more civilized nations, will also by degrees be considered as authoritative by other and non-signatory nations, a phenomenon which, to be sure, first became conspicuous in our own day.
