Hobbes: Great Thinkers on Modern Life by Hannah Dawson

He elevated politics to a science and in his quest to find a way for society to achieve peace, Thomas Hobbes provided a secular justification for the state, and laid the foundations for modern sociology in the process. His mighty Leviathan and other works can still provide guidance on navigating society and politics today.

Thomas Hobbes was an English philosopher who was roiled by the bloodshed and turmoil of the English Civil War. During this period of ceaseless in-fighting, he wrote his masterpiece, Leviathan, which established the foundation for Western political thought. His work has inspired both hate and awe, as he reveals the darker side of human nature and the value of authority. Though he claims man's nature is inherently competitive and selfish, he also shows us how to utilize these traits to our advantage to flourish, be fearless, and free.
