Leviathan After 350 Years (Mind Association Occasional Series)
Publish Date: 2004-04-15
Tom Sorell and Luc Foisneau present a volume of brand-new new essays which reconsider the significance of Thomas Hobbes's masterpiece after three and a half centuries. The world's leading Hobbes scholars and a few newcomers develop themes that have not received sufficient attention in previous work on Leviathan: the place of the last of Hobbes's treatises in the scheme of Hobbes's political writings; Leviathan's claims about some of the passions with the greatest effects on politics; and the connections between biblical and political authorities. This is a book that anyone working on Hobbes and this period of intellectual history will want to read.
