“In Roman Costume and with Roman Phrases”: Skinner, Pettit and Hobbes on Republican Liberty

Hobbes Studies 22 (2):178-184 (2009)
Abstract
The paper presents a critical discussion of Pettit and Skinner's recent treatments of Hobbes on republican freedom, in particular situating Hobbes's attack on the republican politicians from The Elements of Law in the contexts, first, of other contemporary suspicion directed against those politicians who struck a distinctively “Roman” pose, and, second, of Hobbes's wider psychology of politics, before concluding with some reflections on the relationship between Hobbes's political theory and the project of egalitarian republicanism
