1."in like manner"
2."in the like manner"
I thought that the latter is correct, but more digging points to the former.
In Leviathan,of Hobbes, in like manner is used twenty five times, whereas in the like manner appears only four times, e.g.
And these are Pleasures Of The Mind of him that draweth those consequences; and are generally called JOY. In the like manner, Displeasures, are some in the Sense, and called PAYNE; others, in the Expectation of consequences, and are called GRIEFE.
According to the research I did manner is countable in this phrase, and it is only when it means type that it is uncountable. Therefore, I would think that the definite article is needed.
Which of the phrases is correct and why? Are both of them correct?
