    Abstract

    The gret theoritician of the rule of law, Thomas Hobbes, continues to have an influence in present conceptions of law and politics. His political theory of a system of government in which law rules is to a great extent founded in a peculiar concept of practical reason. The latter is a complex notion, with origin in the mechanistic conceptions of nature arising in the XVII. It has to be traced back to political tendencies in favour of individualism. A critical analysis of Hobbes’ rule of law and of his concept of practical reason sheds light over the task of understanding current international order.
