- About this book
Hobbes’ theory of light and vision is the subject of this volume. A close study of texts, above all those still unpublished, reveals how Hobbes’ scientific research is centred around his interest for optics and how optics itself became a paradigmatic model for the development of his mechanistic conception of reality.
