Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho tem como objetivo investigar as fontes conceituais de um manuscrito anônimo tradicionalmente atribuído a Thomas Hobbes e conhecido na literatura como A short tract on first principles (Breve tratado sobre os primeiros princípios). Mostra-se, contrariamente à opinião dos principais comentadores, que a teoria física sobre a natureza da luz, elaborada na segunda seção do manuscrito, situa-se em um campo anti-aristotélico e está alinhada a uma perspectiva atomista, o que se evidencia a partir dos fortes e estreitos vínculos que a teoria mantém com as concepções corpuscularistas de Sir Kenelm Digby e de Sir Walter Charleton.

Abstract in English
The aim of this work is to investigate the conceptual sources of an anonymous manuscript traditionally attributed to Thomas Hobbes and known on literature as A short tract on first principles. It shows, contrary to the opinions of leading commentators, that the physical theory of the nature of light, elaborated in the second section of the manuscript, is located in an anti-Aristotelian field and is aligned to an atomistic perspective, which is evident from the close and strong ties that the theory holds with the corpuscularianisms conceptions of Sir Kenelm Digby and Sir Walter Charleton.
