Meghan Robison is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Montclair State University. She received her PhD from The New School for Social Research in 2016. Her work mainly focuses on political philosophy, early modern philosophy, and aesthetics. She is currently at work on a book on Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan which offers an original reading of the exit from the State of Nature by reexamining the role of Hobbes’ conception of life as “a motion of limbs,” and its connection to the contracts that form the basis of the Commonwealth. Her talk will be drawn from this work.
