Hobbes on miracles

Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 89 (1):117–142 (2008)
Abstract
In this paper I provide an interpretation of Hobbes 's account of miracles in Leviathan. Four main theses are defended: that Hobbes affirms a single account of miracles, not several non-equivalent accounts, that Hobbes 's main objective is political – he wants to explain how the doctrine of miracles must be understood in order for it not to pose a threat to political stability, that Hobbes 's discussion is not designed to undermine the doctrine of miracles in its entirety, and that Hobbes 's considered view of miracles is compatible with the modern scientific worldview to which he is committed
