Hobbes's Science of Politics and His Theory of Science
Analyses the sense in which Hobbes conceived of his political theory as enjoying the status of a ‘science’. It examines the two different concepts of scientific knowledge developed by Hobbes at different times and in different connections (knowledge of causes, and knowledge of meanings), and describes how Hobbes became convinced—mistakenly—that he had found a way of combining the two.
