Editorial Reviews

Review

"An extremely careful, well-informed, and philosophically incisive discussion of recent work on social contract theory in the Hobbesian tradition." Stephen Darwall, University of Michigan

"Kraus presents the most thorough analysis and critique of contractarian methodology I have seen. His book is likely to become the standard reference on modern contractarian theories in the Hobbesian tradition." Gregory Kavka, University of California, Irvine

"This is a state-of-the-art work on Hobbesian contractarian theory....Kraus lays out very clearly and effectively the limits of Hobbesian approaches to morality and political philosophy....This book is extremely well written and argued. The richness and depth of the insights make it required reading for anyone with interests in contactarian (Hobbesian or Kantian) theory." Peter Vallentyne, Ethics

Book Description

This 1994 book constitutes a sustained, comprehensive, and rigorous critique of contemporary Hobbesian contractarianism as expounded in the work of Jean Hampton, Gregory Kavka, and David Gauthier. Professor Kraus argues that the attempts by these three philosophers to use Hobbes to answer current political and moral questions fail.
