Andrew Moore clearly reveals the overlap between the political and philosophical outlook that Shakespeare expresses in his dramas and the work of Machiavelli and Hobbes. At the same time, he recognizes important differences among them. This original contribution to both modern political thought and Shakespeare scholarship is beautifully written, and deepens our appreciation of Shakespeare's wisdom. -- Mary Nichols, Baylor University
Andrew Moore's penetration is evident in his recognition that philosophy conducts a continuous rethinking of the meaning of the concept nature. His signal contribution in these interrelated essays is to make us aware that Shakespeare's plays conduct just such a rethinking. In the course thereof Moore gives us to understand how the playwright reveals the interdependence of moral and political liberty. -- John Alvis, University of Dallas
