    Democracy and the Body Politic From Aristotle to Hobbes.Sophie Smith - 2018 - Political Theory 46 (2):167-196.
    The conventional view of Hobbes’s commonwealth is that it was inspired by contemporary theories of tyranny. This article explores the idea that a paradigm for Hobbes’s state could in fact be found in early modern readings of Aristotle on democracy, as found in Book Three of the Politics. It argues that by the late sixteenth century, these meditations on the democratic body politic had developed claims about unity, mythology, and personation that would become central to Hobbes’s own theory of the (...)

Doing so does three things. First, (...)
