'The life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short' Written during the chaos of the English Civil War, Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan asks how, in a world of violence and horror, can we stop ourselves from descending into anarchy? Hobbes' case for a 'common-wealth' under a powerful sovereign - or 'Leviathan' - to enforce security and the rule of law, shocked his contemporaries, and his book was publicly burnt for sedition the moment it was published. But his penetrating work of political philosophy - now fully revised and with a new introduction for this edition - opened up questions about the nature of statecraft and society that influenced governments across the world. Edited with a new introduction by Christopher Brooke

Hobbes on Civil Association

Author: Michael Oakeshott

Category: Philosophy

Page: 173

Of Michael Oakeshott and his interest in Thomas Hobbes, Professor Paul Franco has written, "The themes Oakeshott stresses in his interpretation of Hobbes are . . . skepticism about the role of reason in politics, allegiance to the morality of individuality as opposed to any sort of collectivism, and the principle of a noninstrumental, nonpurposive mode of political association, namely, civil association." Of Hobbes's Leviathan, Oakeshott has written, "Leviathan is the greatest, perhaps the sole, masterpiece of political philosophy written in the English language." Hobbes on Civil Association consists of Oakeshott's four principal essays on Hobbes and on the nature of civil association as civil association pertains to ordered liberty. The essays are "Introduction to Leviathan" (1946); "The Moral Life in the Writings of Thomas Hobbes" (1960); "Dr. Leo Strauss on Hobbes" (1937); and, "Leviathan A Myth" (1947). The foreword remarks the place of these essays within Oakeshott's entire corpus. Michael Oakeshott (1901-1990) was Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics and the author of many essays, among them those collected in Rationalism in Politics and Other Essays and On History and Other Essays, both now published by Liberty Fund. Paul Franco is a Professor in the Department of Government at Bowdoin College. Please note: This title is available as an ebook for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes.

Hobbes: On the Citizen

Author: Thomas Hobbes,Richard Tuck,Michael Silverthorne

De Cive (On the Citizen) is the first full exposition of the political thought of Thomas Hobbes, the greatest English political philosopher of all time. Professors Tuck and Silverthorne have undertaken the first complete translation since 1651, a rendition long thought (in error) to be at least sanctioned by Hobbes himself. On the Citizen is written in a clear, straightforward, expository style, offering students a more digestible account of Hobbes's political thought than even the Leviathan itself. This new translation is itself a very significant scholarly event.

An Enduring Vision

Revelation Revealed

An historic and prophetic exposition of John's Apocalypse. The book of Revelation begins with a promise: “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near” (Rev. 1:3). God calls us to faithfully study His Word and understand the truths about where we have been, where we are, and where we are going so that we may stand firm in these last days. An Enduring Vision: Revelation Revealed is an in-depth exposition of the book of Revelation. An avid student of the Bible, history, and Spirit of Prophecy, Pastor Austin Cooke thoroughly examines Revelation in light of history and presents a solid interpretation of prophecy based on Bible truth, drawing from sources that date back to the 1700s all the way to modern publications. This book will engage you with its in-depth study of history, amaze you as to the accuracy of God’s prophecies, and inspire you to be ready for the second advent of Jesus. The time is near! May you be blessed as you study the book of Revelation, An Enduring Vision. “Austin Cooke’s commentary on the Book of Revelation is one of the most extensive books that present traditional historicism from an Adventist perspective. It contains a rich collection of historical sources that provide credible evidence for the fulfillment of prophecies throughout history. The author successfully argues the validity of the historicist approach to prophecy in a time when interpretations influenced by historical criticism, futurism, and idealism confuse belief in the historical milestones that mark the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.” P. Gerard Damsteegt, Dr. Theol. Dept. of Church History, Andrews University “From his long and deep association with the book of Revelation, Pastor Austin Cooke has produced this thoughtful and sound work. This book is strongly recommended to every reader interested in prophecy.” William H. Shea, MD, PhD Retired, Biblical Research Institute “I have edited and reviewed many books about Bible prophecy and the books of Daniel and Revelation, and this book may be the most extensive and well-documented volume I have come across. Scholarly in nature, it is also easy to read and understand for the average Bible student. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit played an important role in this exposition. Whenever the author would encounter a difficult passage, which many other commentators had bypassed, he would pray for special guidance and understanding before retiring for the night. Without fail, he would awake in the early hours with the explanation clear in his mind.”—Kalie Kelch, Editor, TEACH Services, Inc.

Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) is one of the most important early modern thinkers. Though Hobbes is best known for Leviathan (1651) and the theory of absolute sovereignty, his works discuss virtually all the major problems of philosophy as well as science and mathematics, and contain the translations of classical texts like Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War, a verse church history, and various essays. Hobbes spent most of his adult life in the service of the influential Cavendish family. The Historical Dictionary of Hobbes's Philosophy offers a comprehensive guide to the many facets of Hobbes's work. Through its chronology, introductory essay, bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on concepts, people, works, and technical terms, Hobbes's impact on philosophy and related fields is made accessible to the reader in this must-have reference. Intended as a reference to learn about particular aspects of Hobbes, it also serves as a quick guide to check information and find the relevant secondary literature on Hobbes. It is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Thomas Hobbes.
