Book Description

August 28, 1998 0521432049 978-0521432047
De Cive (On the Citizen) is the first full exposition of the political thought of Thomas Hobbes, the greatest English political philosopher of all time. Professors Tuck and Silverthorne have undertaken the first complete translation since 1651, a rendition long thought (in error) to be at least sanctioned by Hobbes himself. On the Citizen is written in a clear, straightforward, expository style, offering students a more digestible account of Hobbes' political thought than even Leviathan itself. This new translation is itself a very significant scholarly event.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This new translation will thus be welcomed not only by Hobbes scholars, but by all readers interested in a compact and explicit statement of Hobbes's political ideas. This book, in sum, one would be happy to recommend, not only to a scholarly audience but to a more general readership. Silverthorne's translation...allows the full simplicity and power ofHobbes's political ideas come to life." Sixteenth Century Journal

"The present volume, in the excellent series Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought, provodes a much better translation, along with a scholarly introduction and notes and a useful discussion of key terms in Hobbes's theory. It deserves a wide readership. In these days, when undergraduates increasingly find Leviathan too long and its languge too hard, there is an argument for assigning them this volume instead." Ethics
