Summary "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.
