Product Description


'These papers herald a new era in Hobbesian studies.' Contemporary Review

'This collection, bringing together many distinguished historians of ideas from around the globe, will no doubt be the first port of call for those students and scholars new to Hobbes' greatest work.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy

Book Description

The Cambridge Companion to Hobbes's 'Leviathan' makes a new departure in Hobbes scholarship, addressing a philosopher whose major works, including Leviathan, were published in Latin on the Continent, and whose impact was as great on Continental European theories of state and legal systems as it was at home.
