Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Formatted Contents Note: Milton and Hume -- "Leashed in like hounds" -- Ingratitude -- Pride -- Hume’s about-face -- A fresh start : Hobbes -- Glory and honor in Hobbes -- Julius Caesar -- The ring of Gyges -- Megalo Junior and the wisdom of life -- Ostracism -- Conclusion -- The simle of Achilles and Milton’s eve : an epilogue.
Summary, etc.: "Featuring a Nietzschean paragraph from Hume that smacks of Milton's Satan, these pages also register how 'claws and teeth' figure in Aristotle's Greatness of Soul, and leave Hobbes to pose a still deeper challenge in the same vein. With poets, led by Milton, almost as thick underfoot as philosophers, we are given a glimpse of what a classical education might look like."--ProQuest Ebook Central.
