Leviathan the matter, forme & power of a common-wealth ecclesiastical and civill by Thomas Hobbes ( Book )
213 editions published between 1651 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 4,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Comparable to Plato's Republic in depth and insight, Leviathan includes two society-changing phenomena that Plato didn't dare to dream of -- the rise of great nation-states with their claims to absolute sovereignty, and modern science, with its unprecedented analytic power. To Hobbes, the leviathan -- a mythical sea creature described in the Old Testament -- represented his central thesis: that the state must be strong in order to control and protect its citizens. Even today, Hobbes's thesis in Leviathan is debated among scholars and philosophy aficionados around the globe [...] Like Plato's Republic, this book contains ideas on psychology, ethics, law, language, and religion that continue to challenge modern thinkers and exercise a profound influence on Western thought. A classic treatise of philosophy, Leviathan is critical reading for anyone who wishes to examine the human mind through the prisms of government and society
The elements of law, natural and politic by Thomas Hobbes ( Book )
80 editions published between 1888 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thomas Hobbes was the first great philosopher to write in English. His account of the human condition, first developed in The Elements of Law (1640), which comprises Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, is a direct product of the intellectual and political strife of the seventeenth century. It is also a remarkably penetrating look at human nature, and a still relevant analysis of the fears and self-seeking that result in the war of 'each against every man'. Hobbes sets out the main lines of his general philosophy, later augmented in De Corpore, and the moral and political philosophy later made famous in Leviathan." "This is the first complete popular edition of Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, and it includes chapters from De Corpore and 'Three Lives', two from Hobbes's original Latin. These have never before been published together in English. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Behemoth; or, The long Parliament by Thomas Hobbes ( Book )
50 editions published between 1889 and 2014 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Behemoth is Thomas Hobbes's narrative of the English Civil Wars from the beginning of the Scottish revolution in 1637 to the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. It is his only composition to address directly the history of the events which formed the context of his writings in Leviathan and elsewhere on sovereignty and the government of the Church. Although presented as an account of past events, it conceals a vigorous attack on the values of the religious and political establishment of Restoration England. This is the first fully scholarly edition of the work, and the first new edition of the text since 1889. Based on Hobbes's own presentation manuscript, it includes for the first time an accurate transcription of the passages which Hobbes had deleted in the text, and notes made by early readers."--BOOK JACKET

On the citizen by Thomas Hobbes ( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"De Cive (On the Citizen) is the first full exposition of the political thought of Thomas Hobbes, the greatest English political philosopher. Professors Tuck and Silverthorne have undertaken the first complete translation since 1651, a rendition long thought (in error) to have been at least sanctioned by Hobbes himself. This new translation is both accurate and accessible: it is accompanied by a full glossary of Latin terms, a chronology, a bibliography and an expository introduction. Throughout, the editors have emphasized consistency in the translation and usage of Hobbes's basic conceptual vocabulary, respecting Hobbes's own concern for accurate definition of terms."--Jacket
