Abstract

James Dundas (c.1620-79) argues that Hobbes's account of human nature is false, that Hobbes's doctrine of the state of nature depends on his account of human nature, and that therefore Hobbes does not give us good reason to believe the doctrine. Dundas provides an alternative narrative to Hobbes's.
