Victor Nuovo: Thomas Hobbes, our contemporary

Posted on July 6, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo,Victor1754.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the 14th essay by Middlebury College Professor Emeritus Victor Nuovo on the origins of western political thought, focusing on the great political thinkers.

The long life of Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) encompassed England’s greatest crisis and perhaps its darkest hours. That he survived them and even flourished is proof of his ingenuity and adaptability; that he also wrote about them is our very good fortune, for in them we encounter the voice of experience unmoved by self pity or sentimental fantasies, a courageous voice.

BRISTOL — One team’s command of West Street’s central crown might have decided the outcome of Tuesday’s Great Bristol Outhouse Race. 

In the championship heat of what Bristol Fourth of July celebration organizers unofficially (and not so modestly) call the World Championship Outhouse Race, the winning Bristol Financial Services team of pushers Coleman Russell and Chris Wood and rider Sophie Wolak lined up their rolling port-a-potty right next to the street’s double yellow lines.
