Perez Zagorin:

Hobbes and the Law of Nature (Hardback) - hardcover

2009, ISBN: 0691139806

ID: 17639342702

[EAN: 9780691139807], Neubuch, [PU: Princeton University Press, United States], Philosophy|Ethics & Moral Philosophy, Philosophy|History & Surveys|Modern, Philosophy|Political, Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the first major work in English to explore at length the meaning, context, aims, and vital importance of Thomas Hobbes s concepts of the law of nature and the right of nature. Hobbes remains one of the most challenging and controversial of early modern philosophers, and debates persist about the interpretation of many of his ideas, particularly his views about natural law and natural right. In this book, Perez Zagorin argues that these two concepts are the twin foundations of the entire structure of Hobbes s moral and political thought. Zagorin clears up numerous misconceptions about Hobbes and his relation to earlier natural law thinkers, in particular Hugo Grotius, and he reasserts the often overlooked role of the Hobbesian law of nature as a moral standard from which even sovereign power is not immune. Because Hobbes is commonly thought to be primarily a theorist of sovereignty, political absolutism, and unitary state power, the significance of his moral philosophy is often underestimated and widely assumed to depend entirely on individual self-interest. Zagorin reveals Hobbes s originality as a moral philosopher and his importance as a thinker who subverted and transformed the idea of natural law. Hobbes and the Law of Nature is a major contribution to our understanding of Hobbes s moral, legal, and political philosophy, and a book rich in interpretive and critical insights into Hobbes s writing and thought.

Zagorin, Perez:
Hobbes and the Law of Nature - hardcover

ISBN: 9780691139807

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: PRINCETON UNIV PR], "I read this book with genuine pleasure and profit. "Hobbes and the Law of Nature" is a work of great intellectual power by a scholar of enormous breadth and depth. Zagorin rescues Hobbes from misguided and hostile interpreters, and his book will certainly elicit some strong, even angry feelings. This will be all to the good."--Richard Flathman, professor emeritus, Johns Hopkins University "Hobbes and the Law of Nature" is a significant contribution. Zagorin brings almost the entire Hobbesian corpus to bear, as well as a great deal of the scholarly literature on Hobbes of the past several decades. He also deploys his considerable knowledge of the seventeenth-century context of Hobbes's thinking. The result is that he helps us see Hobbes's thought much more clearly."--Michael P.
