    A cornerstone of modern western philosophy, addressing the role of man in government, society and religion In 1651, Hobbes published his work about the relationship between the government and the individual. More than four centuries old, this brilliant yet ruthless book analyzes not only the bases of government but also physical nature and the roles of man. Comparable to Plato's Republic in depth and insight, Leviathan includes two society-changing phenomena that Plato didn't dare to dream of --…Read more

  • Le Léviathan, en langue latine, qui se trouve ici traduit pour la première fois dans son intégralité en français, n’a vu le jour qu’en 1668, mais son contenu ne se réduit aucunement à la version anglaise publiée 17 ans auparavant. Au lieu de constituer une transposition fidèle du texte de 1651, ce deuxième Léviathan doit être tenu, de plein droit, comme un autre Léviathan. La connaissance achevée de la philosophie politique de Hobbes exige ainsi de ne pas laisser ce texte latin dans l’ombre du t…Read more

    Les Élements du droit naturel et politique sont la première œuvre politique de Hobbes. Ecrits en 1640, ils circulèrent en manuscrit, juste avant que Hobbes ne rejoigne la France où il demeurera en exil pendant onze ans pour échapper aux affres de la guerre civile anglaise. La rédaction de cet ouvrage est donc directement liée au contexte politique. Pourtant, Hobbes y accomplit une déterritorialisation radicale du politique. Loin de partir comme tous ses prédécesseurs de l’histoire ou de la natur…Read more

    UITE mundane pursuits as well as lofty attempts to achieve the extraordinary turn us against each other in tragic, insidious ways. These pursuits give rise to an "invisible hand" that, far from guiding people toward happiness, steers them instead toward confrontation and aggression. People end up literally making war in order to secure a good life. My aim here is to lay bare mechanisms by which our undertakings make aggressors of us. I begin with an analysis of competition, aggression, and relat…Read more

    The Leviathan
    Regnery. 2009.
    To read Hobbes on his own terms is to discover a provocative rival to contemporary perspectives on morals and politics, one that challenges widely shared assumptions about the roots of our rights and calls into question common conclusions about the scope of political authority in a society based on the consent of the governed. At the same time, it is to encounter a complement to contemporary perspectives on the liberal state, one that offers a distinctive and powerful basis for the political ord…Read more

    Leviathan
    In Aloysius Martinich, Fritz Allhoff & Anand Vaidya (eds.), Early Modern Philosophy: Essential Readings with Commentary, Blackwell. 2006.
    Thomas Hobbes took a new look at the ways in which society should function, and he ended up formulating the concept of political science. His crowning achievement, Leviathan, remains among the greatest works in the history of ideas. Written during a moment in English history when the political and social structures as well as methods of science were in flux and open to interpretation, Leviathan played an essential role in the development of the modern world. This edition of Hobbes' landmark work…Read more

    `the state of men without civil society is nothing else but a mere war of all against all.' Thomas Hobbes was the first great philosopher to write in English. His account of the human condition, first developed in The Elements of Law, which comprises Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, is a direct product of the intellectural and political strife of the seventeenth century. It is also a remarkably penetrating look at human nature, and a permanently relevant analysis of the fears of self-seekin…Read more

    Leviathan, Revised Edition (edited book)
    Broadview Press. 2010.
    Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan is the greatest work of political philosophy in English and the first great work of philosophy in English. In addition, it presents the fundamentals of his beliefs about language, epistemology, and an extensive treatment of revealed religion and its relation to politics. Beginning with premises that were sometimes controversial, such as that every human action is caused by the agent's desire for his own good, Hobbes derived shocking conclusions, such as that the civil g…Read more
