Description

Thomas Hobbes Leviathan is arguably the greatest piece of political philosophy written in the English language Written in a time of great political turmoil Hobbes life spanned the reign of Charles I, the Civil Wars, the Commonwealth and the Protectorate, and the Restoration , Leviathan is an argument for obedience to authority grounded in an analysis of human nature Since its first publication in 1991 Richard Tuck s edition of Leviathan has been recognised as the single most accurate and authoritative text, and for this revised edition Professor Tuck has provided a much amplified and expanded introduction, which will provide students unfamiliar with Hobbes with a cogent and accessible introduction to this most challenging of texts Other vital aids to study include an extensive guide to further reading, a note on textual matters, a chronology of important events and brief biographies of important persons mentioned in Hobbes text.
