image of Hobbes Studies

Larry May makes some important arguments about Hobbes on law and particularly about the significance of the notion of equity for Hobbes, both as a moral law and as a (possibly limiting) requirement of a sovereign’s lawmaking authority. I am generally supportive of May’s project while remaining sceptical about the conclusion that a self-restraining sovereign is a genuinely limited sovereign.
