Through a Glass, Darkly

'The success of Hobbes's radical project seems more impressive than ever.'

Review by Loren Rotner of Hobbes's Kingdom of Light: A Study of the Foundations of Modern Political Philosophy, by Devin Stauffer, at the Claremont Review of Books.

"...Stauffer gives the strongest account of his subject’s ambition, focusing especially on his attempt to transform all human opinion of politics, morality, science, and theology in the direction of radical, amoral, materialist individualism."

See Hobbes, Leviathan, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 23, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 21.
