“First Philosophy and the Foundations of Knowledge”

Yves Charles Zarka, in The Cambridge Companion to Hobbes (Tom Sorell, ed., Cambridge University Press, 1996), pp. 62-85

Zarka considers the relation between Hobbes’s “rational reconstruction of knowledge” and his concept of “first philosophy,” focusing in particular on theĀ  development of his first philosophy, with comparison to Aristotle and Descartes.
