Schopenhauer's Early Fourfold Root. Schopenhauer’s Early Fourfold Root constitutes a landmark in Schopenhaurian scholarship.

Hobbes’s moral philosophy has been less influential than his political philosophy, in part because that theory is too ambiguous to have garnered any general consensus as to its content. Most scholars have taken Hobbes to have affirmed some sort of personal relativism or subjectivism; but views that Hobbes espoused divine command theory, virtue ethics, rule egoism, or a form of projectivism also find support in Hobbes’s texts and among scholars

Hobbes’s moral philosophy and political philosophy are intertwined; his moral thought is based around ideas of human nature, which determine the interactions that make up his political philosophy

This book offers an extended interpretation of Thomas Hobbes's philosophy of language. The author takes Hobbes's materialist claims very seriously, and shows how Hobbes's writings on language can be better understood when they are viewed as connected intimately to his materialism, and especially with his distinctive version of a materialist theory of mind. To develop her interpretation, the author uses contemporary work in philosophy of language, especially that of casual theorists, as well as recent developments in philosophy of mind to illuminate and explore Hobbesian positions. Resolutions are also offered to a number of long-standing objections to Hobbes's work, among them the well-known tension between Hobbes's conventionalism and his materialism.
