9789004181748: The Elements of Representation in Hobbes (Studies in the History of Political Thought)

Commentators have traditionally constructed Hobbes's thinking on representation too narrowly, as a self-contained area of his political theory. This book challenges this orthodoxy of Hobbes scholarship, which owes less to Hobbes's thought than to contemporary preconceptions of what counts as political thinking. In her powerful and original analysis, Monica Brito Vieira mines neglected strands of Hobbes's theory of representation, and reinstates it in a much wider pattern of Hobbes's theorizing about human thought and action in relation to widely varied images, roles and fictions. The result is a compelling portrait of how man's natural power to form representations through the imagination and artifice underpins his capacity to break away from nature, and fashion a world that best suits his needs.

Review:

"Le livre de Monica Brito Vieira represente une contribution importante a la discussion contemporaine sur la conception hobbesienne de la notion de representation. [...] Brito Vieira demontre de maniere convaincante que la conception hobbesienne de la representation ne peut se reduire a l'interpretation de son aspect juridique." Luka Ribarevic, Archives de Philosophie (2012) Vol. 75, No. 2, pp. 365-367. Knjiga Monice Brito Vieire jedan je od najvaznijih doprinosa suvremenoj raspravi o Hobbesovoj znanosti o politici. Luka Ribarevic, Politicka misao 47:1 (2010) 245-251.
