By Richard Cumberland

A Treatise of the legislation of Nature, originally
titled De Legibus Naturae, first seemed in 1672
as a theoretical reaction to quite a number concerns that came
together throughout the overdue 1660s. It conveyed a conviction
that technological know-how may possibly supply an efficient ability of
demonstrating either the contents and the obligatory
force of the legislations of nature. At a time while Hobbes’s
work looked as if it would recommend that the applying of
science undermined instead of supported the belief of
obligatory normal legislations, Cumberland’s De Legibus
Naturae
supplied a systematic rationalization of the natural
necessity of altruism.
Through his argument for an ethical legal responsibility to
natural legislation, Cumberland made a serious intervention in
the early debate over the position of usual jurisprudence
at a second while the average legislations undertaking used to be widely
suspected of heterodoxy and incoherence.
Liberty Fund publishes the 1st glossy version of A
Treatise of the legislation of Nature
, in accordance with John
Maxwell’s English translation of 1727. The edition
includes Maxwell’s vast notes and appendixes. It
also presents, for the 1st time in English, manuscript
additions via Cumberland and fabric from Barbeyrac’s
1744 French variation and John Towers’s variation of
1750.
Richard Cumberland
(1632–1718) was once bishop of
Peterborough.
