Hobbes : a biography by Aloysius Martinich( Book )

31 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) is now recognized as one of the fathers of modern philosophy and political theory. In his own time he was as famous for his work in physics, geometry, and religion. The controversy surrounding his life never abated: the Catholic Church placed his books on the Index, and Oxford University dismissed faculty for being Hobbists." "A. P. Martinich has written the completest and most accessible biography of Hobbes available. The book takes full account of the historical and cultural context in which Hobbes lived, drawing on both published and unpublished sources. It will be a great resource for philosophers, political theorists, and historians of ideas. The style will also ensure that the book appeals to general readers with an interest in the history of philosophy, the rise of modern science, and the English Civil War."--Jacket

The two gods of Leviathan : Thomas Hobbes on religion and politics by Aloysius Martinich( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and German and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As well as being considered the greatest English political philosopher, Hobbes has traditionally been thought of as a purely secular thinker, highly critical of all religion. In this provocative new study, Professor Martinich argues that conventional wisdom has been misled. In fact, he shows that religious concerns pervade Leviathan and that Hobbes was really intent on providing a rational defense of the Calvinistic Church of England that flourished under the reign of James I. Professor Martinich presents a close reading of Leviathan in which he shows that, for Hobbes, Christian doctrine is not politically destabilizing and is consistent with modern science."--Publisher's description

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan is the greatest work of political philosophy in English and the first great work of philosophy in English. Beginning with premises that were sometimes controversial, such as that every human action is caused by the agent's desire for his own good, Hobbes derived shocking conclusions, such as that the civil government enjoys absolute control over its citizens and that the sovereign has the right to determine which religion is to be practiced in a commonwealth. Hobbes's contemporaries recognized the power of the arguments in Leviathan and many of them wrote responses to it; selections by John Bramhall, Robert Filmer, Edward Hyde, George Lawson, William Lucy, Samuel Pufendorf, and Thomas Tenison are included in this edition
