In this paper, we propose to investigate the above mentioned book of this celebrated author, three key concepts - in the philosophical thought of the time - as Law, Justice and Power. We stop in the study of the configuration of Justice, Injustice and the concept of Peace, in relation to the Hundred Years War, analyzing the figure model (proposed by the author) of the women as "active legal subject".
