By Richard Cumberland

A Treatise of the legislation of Nature, originally
titled De Legibus Naturae, first seemed in 1672
as a theoretical reaction to quite a number matters that came
together in the course of the overdue 1660s. It conveyed a conviction
that technology may perhaps provide an efficient capacity of
demonstrating either the contents and the obligatory
force of the legislation of nature. At a time while Hobbes’s
work looked as if it would recommend that the applying of
science undermined instead of supported the belief of
obligatory normal legislation, Cumberland’s De Legibus
Naturae
supplied a systematic clarification of the natural
necessity of altruism.
Through his argument for an ethical legal responsibility to
natural legislation, Cumberland made a severe intervention in
the early debate over the function of ordinary jurisprudence
at a second while the average legislation undertaking was once widely
suspected of heterodoxy and incoherence.
