Hobbes and Modern Political Thought

First Edition

Yves Charles Zarka
Translated by James Griffith

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Reveals the Hobbesian origins of contemporary political concerns, especially the relationships between state, individual and law
  • Discover the origin of liberalism in the Hobbesian theory of negative liberty; that Hobbesian interest and contract are essential to contemporary discussions of the comportment of economic actors; and how state sovereignty returns anew in the form of the servility of the state
  • Controversially argues against received readings claiming that Hobbes is a thinker of a state monopoly on legitimate violence
