Biography/Description

Student of Guillaume Budé and professor at Bourges for most of his quite short career, F. is principally known for his quarrels with his colleagues at Bourges. He is, however, an important figure in the development of the humanist juristic method. Of the many strands of humanistic juristic thought, F., like his student Doneau, is particular notable for his rigorous development of legal rules on the basis of critical analysis of the texts.
