Abstract/Summary This chapter provides an account of seventeenth-century natural law as a style of political philosophy used in ordering the relations between law, politics and theology. Focusing on the work of Grotius, Hobbes, Locke and Pufendorf, it argues that there is no such thing as 'the' natural law, only a plurality of rival forms elaborated in the context of particular political and religious programs.
