Sample text

Hobbes insists on such a right and conceives of the right of self-defense as exercised in primarily this way, namely, in opposition to the dictates of a political order. Digges denies the existence of such a right, explicitly contradicting Hobbes’s account. 38 They clearly would have supported Socrates’ decision to drink the hemlock. In order to explain why people would undertake a covenant requiring the renunciation of all of their natural rights, many of these royalists appealed to self-interested probability calculations.

3 (2000), 717. 26 Hobbes on Resistance Hobbes denies; indeed, he takes the paradigmatic case of self-defense to be the accused man – guilty or not – defending himself against a lawful threat from agents of the state. This difference cannot be chalked up to a difference in time period. ”43 Justifying self-defense against a lawful attack was a stance unique to Hobbes, not to the seventeenth century. ”44 In these passages Hobbes comes closest to describing something we would recognize today as a right of self-defense.

On the “death as the worst evil” reading, Hobbes’s argument seems to be as follows. ” Normative principles are limited by facts about human nature. But there is an alternative reading. I suggest that Hobbes’s argument for the right of nature be taken not as a claim about what follows from Kavka, Hobbesian Moral and Political Theory, 81. ” 64 65 Hobbes’s right of self-defense 37 the mandates of human psychology, but rather as a claim about reasonability. ” He does equate death avoidance with the natural necessity of gravity, but he does not need that strong a claim.
