Editorial Reviews


"Sharon Lloyd's new book on Hobbes is one of the most significant in the last twenty-five years. She presents an original thesis about the foundation of Hobbes's moral philosophy.... Lloyd's book is required reading for all Hobbes scholars and political theorists."
--A. P. Martinich, University of Texas at Austin, Journal of the History of Philosophy

Book Description

In this book, S. A. Lloyd offers a radically new interpretation of Hobbes's laws of nature, revealing them to be not egoistic precepts of personal prudence but rather moral instructions for obtaining the common good. Lloyd's reciprocity account of Hobbes's moral philosophy stands in contrast to both divine command and rational choice interpretations.
