Hobbes' writing surprises, shocks, amuses and above all, stimulates criticism both of himself and of our conventional wisdom. This book is both expository and critical and concentres on Hobbes' ethical and political theory, but also considering the effect on these of his metaphysics.
Updated, with a new preface on recent Hobbes scholarship written especially for this re-issue, a particular useful feature of this book is the new, critical bibliography.
Available on its own, or as part of the 9-volume reissue of the classic Political Thinkers series.
