Thomas Hobbes

Taylor, A. E.

Alfred Edward Taylor (1869–1945), an international authority on Plato, here gives a useful introductory sketch of the life and thought of Hobbes. Constructed from the original texts of Hobbes and his contemporary biographers, as well as the later studies of Croom Robertson, Tönnies and Leslie Stephen, this accessible book also includes a brief account of Hobbes’s life.

“An admirable little book.” J. W. N. Watkins, in Hobbes’s System of Ideas.
