ii Acknowledgments I would like to thank Washington University and the Wash. U. Philosophy department, whose funding made this work possible. I would also like to thank the members of my committee. Thank you to Larry May, who was consistently willing to read the work I sent him and did so in record time. When I gave him the first draft of my prospectus, he read it and got back to me with comments within the same day. I am extremely grateful to him for his support and criticism. My interests in Hobbes and Grotius are indebted to him, and are evidence of a teacher‘s enthusiasm for a topic inspiring students around him. Thank you to Eric Brown for requiring me to go to the Saint Louis Area Group Reading Ancient Philosophy to complete my language requirement at Washington University and for making that group so fun to attend. Although I started discussing my dissertation with him in his capacity as Graduate Student Advisor, these meetings were so helpful in conceptualizing my project that I soon starting discussing political philosophy with him regularly. I am extremely grateful for those conversations. I am grateful to Kit Wellman, whose to-the-point comments and challenging objections kept me on my toes. Thanks to Marilyn Friedman for her comments throughout the dissertation process. I enjoyed Marilyn‘s classes as a graduate student, TA, and as an auditor. These classes, and the conversations before and after, played a big role in shaping my dissertation project. I am indebted to the Political Theory Workshop at Washington University, where I met Andrew Rehfeld and Clarissa Hayward. Presenting papers there was an invaluable experience and the challenging opportunity it affords graduate students to present work early in their careers is one of a kind. I am also grateful to Washington University‘s
