Hobbes: Leviathan

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Born out of the political turmoil of the English Civil War, Leviathan stands out as one of the
most influential political and philosophical texts of the seventeenth century. It argues for the
restoration of the monarchy, in light of the Republic, and calls for a commonwealth ruled
by an authoritative, autocratic figure with absolute sovereignty. This would put an end to all
controversy, war and fear, and establish peace via social contract. Over the course of the
book Hobbes targets Christianity and contemporary philosophic methods, rejecting the idea
of spirits and souls, and arguing for a philosophy to end divisiveness and provide indisputable
conclusions. These highly controversial theses led to book burnings in 1666 and Hobbes being
dubbed the ‘Monster of Malmsbury’.
