Summary Featuring a Nietzschean paragraph from Hume that smacks of Milton's Satan, these pages also register how ""claws and teeth"" figure in Aristotle's Greatness of Soul, and leave Hobbes to pose a still deeper challenge in the same vein. With poets, led by Milton, almost as thick underfoot as philosophers, we are given a glimpse of what a classical education might look like
