Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) is best known for his development of the
concept of sovereignty, which was treated most clearly in his great
work, Leviathan. Whilst Hobbes was not the first theorist of
sovereignty, he remains perhaps the most thorough exponent of the
concept. His accounts of morality and religion, as well as of
government, are set out in a way that precludes legitimate
challenge to the sovereign's authority: and the soovereign, whether
monarchical or republican or parliamentary, was taken by Hobbes to
be fundamental to civil life. Much of the literature on Hobbes has
been devoted to his work on sovereignty. However, this does not
exhaust the interest of Hobbes' thought, and recent scholars have
also investigated such topics as his conception of historiography,
his natural philosophy and his account of religion, and considered
how these relate to his political thought. The articles selected in
these three volumes reflect these concerns and offer an exploration
of Hobbes' political philosophy.
