35 The whole of the social contract doctrine is, in this sense, an offshoot of the countervailing strategy. Hobbes needs to appeal to it just once, for the purpose of founding a state so constituted that the problems created by passionate men are solved once and for all. With this task in mind it was sufficient for him to define the taming and to-be-tamed THE PASSIONS AND THE INTERESTS passions on an ad hoc basis. But many contemporaries of Hobbes, while sharing his concern about the predicament of man and society, did not embrace his radical solution and felt, moreover, that the countervailing strategy was needed on a continuing, day-to-day basis.

It may be useful here to outline this approach, reserving a fuller presentation for the last part of this study. 3 THE PASSIONS AND THE INTERESTS A vast literature has contrasted the aristocratic, heroic ideal of the Feudal Age and the Renaissance with the bourgeois mentality and the Protestant Ethic of a later era. The decline of one ethic and the rise of another have been exhaustively surveyed and have been presented as precisely such: as two distinct historical processes, each of which had as its protagonist a different social class, the declining aristocracy on the one hand, and the rising bourgeoisie on the other.

It was not a conscious stratagem of course. In fact, the author of that sentence (Hamilton or Madison) appears to have become the first victim of the confusion it fostered, for he continues: "It may be a reflection on human nature that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. " Now it certainly is a "reflection on human nature" to hold that man's evil impulses can only be restrained by setting up his various passions to fight and neutralize each other. The principle of the division of powers, on the other hand, is not nearly so insulting to human nature.
