Hunting of Leviathan, The

Seventeenth-Century Reactions to the Materialism and Moral Philosophy of Thomas Hobbes

Mintz, Samuel

Mintz examines the contemporary reaction in England to the “Monster of Malmesbury,” with a particular focus on his materialism and moral philosophy. He argues that most scholars have ignored the contemporary reaction to Hobbes and thus have failed to realize the importance of the historical context against which the analysis of Hobbes’s ideas can be measured.
