Featured Work

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes

The_Remnant_Trust_Home_Collage_1600x950_Slider_0003_Layer-14b

First Edition, with additional engraved title page and folding table. “Leviathan” was written during the English Civil War (1642-1651) by Thomas Hobbes, where he asserts that civil war and anarchy can only be avoided by having a strong, undivided government. In “Leviathan,” Hobbes argues for a social contract between society and a legitimate government ruled by an absolute sovereign. The social contract asserts that society has consented, either explicitly or tacitly, to surrender some of their freedoms and submit to the authority of a ruler or magistrate, in exchange for protection of their remaining rights.

Hobbes’ influence would later decline as philosophical emphasis turned toward individual rights. However, the growth of utilitarianism led to a reassessment of Hobbes and his political philosophy and he is now viewed as the greatest original political philosopher of his time.
