The Political Philosophy of Hobbes - His Theory of Obligation

£29.99

Product description

Hobbes's theory of moral and political obligation has received scant attention, although important for an understanding of his political doctrine. In this book the author presents a new interpretation of the theory which he attempts to set out in the form of a continuous argument, providing at the same time a more complete and detailed treatment than has hitherto been available.
The book deals principally with Hobbes's theory of the right and duties of the individual, both as man and as citizen. It has also been necessary, however, to consider from a new point of view many related aspects of Hobbes's doctrine: for example, those concerning the theory of covenant and natural law, the role of the sovereign, self-preservation and salvation, Hobbes's legal positivism, his notion of power, and the place of God in his philosophy.
