"A Treatise of the legislation of Nature", initially titled "De Legibus Naturae", first seemed in 1672 as a theoretical reaction to more than a few matters that got here jointly in the course of the overdue 1660s. It conveyed a conviction that technology may perhaps provide an efficient technique of demonstrating either the contents and the compulsory strength of the legislation of nature. At a time whilst Hobbes's paintings seemed to recommend that the appliance of technology undermined instead of supported the belief of compulsory typical legislation, Cumberland's "De Legibus Naturae" supplied a systematic rationalization of the ordinary necessity of altruism. via his argument for an ethical legal responsibility to traditional legislation, Cumberland made a serious intervention within the early debate over the position of normal jurisprudence at a second whilst the normal legislations venture was once largely suspected of heterodoxy and incoherence. this can be the 1st smooth variation of "A Treatise of the legislation of Nature", in keeping with John Maxwell's English translation of 1727. The version comprises Maxwell's broad notes and appendixes. It additionally presents, for the 1st time in English, manuscript additions through Cumberland and fabric from Barbeyrac's 1744 French version and John Towers's variation of 1750.
