9780199264612: Leviathan after 350 Years (Mind Association Occasional Series)

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.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Tom Sorell and Luc Foisneau bring together original essays by the world s leading Hobbes scholars to discuss Hobbes s masterpiece after three and a half centuries. The contributors address three different themes. The first is the place of Leviathan within Hobbes s output as a political philosopher. What does Leviathan add to The Elements of Law (1640) and De Cive (1642; 1647)? What is the relation between the English Leviathan and the Latin version of the book (1668)? Does Leviathan deserve its pre-eminence? The second theme concerns the connections between Hobbes s psychology and Hobbes s politics. The essays discuss Hobbes s curious views on the significance of laughter, evidence that he connected life in the state with passionlessness; the ways in which such things as fear for one s life entitle subjects to rebel; and the question of how the sovereign s personal passions are to be squared with his personifying a multitude. The third theme is Hobbes s views on the Bible and the Church: contributors examine the tensions between any allowance for ecclesiastical and (differently) biblical authority on the one hand, and political authority on the other. This is a book which anyone working on Hobbes or on this period of intellectual history will want to read. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780199264612
