  5. Hobbes's Philosophy as a System: The Relation Between His Political and Natural Philosophy.Richard A. Talaska - 1985 - Dissertation, The Catholic University of America
    Rare is the scholarship that does not somewhere refer to Hobbes's philosophy as a system, but nowhere does Hobbes refer to his philosophy by this term. Since Hobbes in most recognized for his moral and political philosophy, and since the interpretation of his moral and political concepts varies with the variety of views about the systematic relationship between his political and natural philosophy, the issue of system is the most crucial in Hobbes interpretation. ;The standard interpretation is that Hobbes's anthropology (...)

    Philosophical Reasoning in Ethics and the Use of the History of Philosophy.Richard A. Talaska - 1997 - Teaching Philosophy 20 (2):121-141.

    The Emergence of the Early Modern Concept of System.Richard A. Talaska - 1985 - Philosophy Research Archives 11 (9999):1-86.
    This study is meant to provide a means of understanding the change of philosophic perspective from the naive classical view that natures manifest themselves to mind to the modern view that they do so only as mediated by thought or speech. it does so by tracing the emergence of the early modern concept that philosophy must be presented as a system of propositions or laws in order to be scientific. it is argued that certain early moderns adopted the term "system" (...)

    History and Modernity in the Thought of Thomas Hobbes. [REVIEW]Richard A. Talaska - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (3):618-620.
    Robert Kraynak's study of Hobbes's use of history is a genuine contribution to a neglected area of Hobbes scholarship. His book also offers a unique view of Hobbes's influence on modernity and of the unity of Hobbes's philosophy.
