5.0 out of 5 stars Political Genius 19 April 2014
By Wilse
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great book by a great philosopher. I think he was one of the first philosophers to write about the social contract theory of giving up your freedom in order to receive security from the state. I'm not exactly religious but the writing at the end about the unreliability of Catholicism is very intelligent as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true classic 8 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No serious student of political philosophy can ignore this book. Hobbes ranks alongside Rousseau, Mill and Machiavelli as one of the true greats. It's.not an easy read but worth the effort.
