Leviathan Book by Thomas Hobbes (Farsi Edition)
Leviathan is both a magnificent literary achievement and the greatest work of political philosophy in the English language. Permanently challenging, it has found new applications and new refutations in every generation. –Text refers to an alternate paperback edition.
Thomas Hobbes (5 April 1588 – 4 December 1679) was an English philosopher, considered to be one of the founders of modern political philosophy. Hobbes is best known for his 1651 book Leviathan, in which he expounds an influential formulation of social contract theory. In addition to political philosophy, Hobbes contributed to a diverse array of other fields, including history, jurisprudence, geometry, the physics of gases, theology, and ethics, as well as philosophy in general. Thomas Hobbes was born on 5 April 1588, in Westport, now part of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, England. Having been born prematurely when his mother heard of the coming invasion of the Spanish Armada, Hobbes later reported that “my mother gave birth to twins: myself and fear.” Hobbes had a brother, Edmund, about two years older, as well as a sister named Anne. Although Thomas Hobbes’s childhood is unknown to a large extent, as is his mother’s name, it is known that Hobbes’s father, Thomas Sr., was the vicar of both Charlton and Westport. Hobbes’s father was uneducated, according to John Aubrey, Hobbes’s biographer, and he “disesteemed learning.” Thomas Sr. was involved in a fight with the local clergy outside his church, forcing him to leave London. As a result, the family was left in the care of Thomas Sr.’s older brother, Francis, a wealthy glove manufacturer with no family of his own.
