Jonathan Kramnick, Actions and Objects from Hobbes to Richard­son

Contributor's Note

Sara Landreth, an assistant professor of English at the University of Ottawa, is writing a book about how eighteenth-century writers turned to Aristotelian, Hobbesian, and Newtonian models of motion to explain all kinds of change, from a chemical reaction to a poem's influence on a reader's passions.
