This new contribution to the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series, on the television series House of Cards, presents cynical politician Frank Underwood as a Hobbesian anti-democrat.
This essay argues for a “realist-utopian” interpretation of Hobbes’s theory of international relations. It suggests that, according to Hobbes, a state capable of securing peace within its borders would be unlikely to make aggressive war outside them. This radical transformation in domestic politics would thus in itself mitigate and perhaps even overcome international conflict.
This new article from Teresa M. Bejan considers the Hobbesian vision of toleration.
This new article argues that mixed mathematics provided Hobbes with a model for thinking about natural philosophy, allowing him to combine observations from experience with causal principles from geometry.
This new book offers a fresh understanding of Hobbes’s international thought, tracing his analogy between natural men and sovereign states and its reception by Pufendorf, Rousseau and Vattel. Rejecting realism, it argues that the leading political thinkers of early modernity were precursors of an enlightened liberal theory of international society.
This book chapter suggests that Hobbes’s materialism allows him to argue that morality is ultimately a social creation.
Martinich challenges Leo Strauss’s reading of Hobbes in his 1936 book The Political Philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. Martinich rejects Strauss’s reading of Hobbesian rights in the state of nature, of Hobbes’s account of human nature, of the nature of reason, of the causes of war, and the basis of law.
