I don’t believe that Hobbes actually believed what he said about the qualities of a good judge. He is correct with respect to the attributes and character that judging requires.

Yet, looking at his own utterances in support of a sovereign who may legitimately, indeed is compelled by virtue of his sovereing position, place himself above the law, it is clear that Hobbes did not believe either a) judges ought to both have and exercise those reasoned faculties or that the sovereing could / should place himself above or outside the law.
How else to explain his implied disavowl of all the contemporary English judges who were, in fact, fighting (quite rightly and successfully) the Crowns use / claim of Crown perogative.

Which one is it to be, Ole Hobbesy?
