Hobbes and Modern Political Thought

First Edition

James Griffith and Yves Charles Zarka
Edited by James Griffith

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Discover how Hobbes established the framework for modern political thought: liberalism originates in the Hobbesian theory of negative liberty; Hobbesian interest and contract are essential to contemporary discussions of the comportment of economic actors; and state sovereignty returns anew in the servility of the state.
