This follows directly from our natural right to self preservation, whereby each person may � use his own power as he will himself for the preservation of his own nature� (ibid, 14.1). Peace, according to Hobbes, is the best way of surviving. Law two is that, in our efforts to secure peace, we should agree to mutually divest ourselves of hostile rights. That is, I should give up my survival right to attack and kill you under the condition that you give up your corresponding survival right to attack and kill me Mediaeval Tales: With an Introduction by Henry Morley (1884?).

Two main currents in European philosophy --- the rationalism of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz and the empiricism of Locke, Berkeley, Hume --- were conjoined in the work of Kant, perhaps the greatest German philosopher ever (Critique of Pure Reason on a par with Spinoza's Ethics). According to Kant, the world of things-in-themselves is unknowable; the world of appearance, the phenomenal world governed by laws, is knowable Imagining Heaven in the Middle Ages: A Book of Essays (Garland Medieval Casebooks).

In the Prologue to his Lives and Opinions of the Eminent Philosophers (tr. from the Greek by R. L. ) Diogenes Laertius [fl. c. 3rd century A.

Thus, compared with Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas elevates human beings above all of physical creation (except for the angels, although certain of the saints, such as the Blessed Virgin, are higher than the angels).
