No description available, 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 i Leviathan i 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 i Leviathan i played an essential role in the development of the modern world br br An outspoken royalist Hobbes fled to France during the English civil war where he wrote this polemic in which he calls for a powerful sovereign a Leviathan to act as an enforcer of peace and justice Hobbes articulation of this long contemplated philosophy of political and natural science was finally published in two years after the overthrow and execution of Charles I It met with a fire storm of controversy that included charges of treason and sedition This edition of Hobbes landmark work is based on the original text It incorporates the author s own corrections and retains the period spelling and punctuation offering both flavourful authenticity and the utmost clarity of expression, The founding father of modern political philosophy Thomas Hobbes living in an era of horrific violence saw human life as meaningless and cruel here he argues the only way to escape this brutality is for all to accept a social contract that acknowledges the greater authority of a Sovereign leader, i Behemoth or The Long Parliament i is essential to any reader interested in the historical context of the thought of Thomas Hobbes In i De Cive i and i Leviathan i the great political philosopher had developed an analytical framework for discussing sedition rebellion and the breakdown of authority br br i Behemoth i completed around and not published until after Hobbes s death represents the systematic application of this framework to the English Civil War In his insightful and substantial Introduction Stephen Holmes examines the major themes and implications of i Behemoth i in Hobbes s system of thought Holmes notes that a fresh consideration of i Behemoth i dispels persistent misreadings of Hobbes including the idea that man is motivated solely by a desire for self preservation br br i Behemoth i which is cast as a series of dialogues between a teacher and his pupil locates the principal cause of the Civil War less in economic interests than in the stubborn irrationality of key actors It also shows more vividly than any of Hobbes s other works the importance of religion in his theories of human nature and behavior br br i The placing of Hobbes s political thought in its historical context and specifically viewing it as a direct response to and interpretation of the English Civil War necessarily has the consequence of increasing the value of i Behemoth i Hobbes s own analysis of that event Students and scholars who wish to know not only how the Civil War shaped Hobbes s political thinking but also why it retained its central place in his thought nearly twenty years u after u he wrote i Leviathan i will have to turn to i Behemoth i for the answers i Richard Ashcraft
