Publisher Description

This book has been called "the greatest single work of political thought in the English language.” But access to the concepts in this book is not an easy task. Beginning or intermediate philosophy students continue to struggle with Hobbes' old-English words and prose style... The author's guide to Leviathan solves these problems by organizing each chapter into short sections while using contemporary examples and prose to explain the more difficult arguments and ideas. The result is an understandable student guide to Hobbes' Leviathan. Houlgate also provides two chapters showing how Hobbes answers the central questions of political philosophy and compares Hobbes' answers to those of Plato and John Locke. As a bonus, each chapter ends with questions for thought and discussion, thereby helping students with exam preparation and providing ideas for successful term papers. The book concludes with an imaginary dialogue between Hobbes, Locke, and James Madison on the impeachment clause of the U.S. Constitution.
