Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
965 editions published between 1651 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 9,151 libraries worldwide
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
Leviathan : or, The matter, forme and power of a commonwealth, ecclesiasticall and civil by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
84 editions published between 1651 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,601 libraries worldwide
Comparable to Plato's Republic in depth and insight, Leviathan includes two society-changing phenomena that Plato didn't dare to dream of -- the rise of great nation-states with their claims to absolute sovereignty, and modern science, with its unprecedented analytic power. To Hobbes, the leviathan -- a mythical sea creature described in the Old Testament -- represented his central thesis: that the state must be strong in order to control and protect its citizens. Even today, Hobbes's thesis in Leviathan is debated among scholars and philosophy aficionados around the globe ... Like Plato's Republic, this book contains ideas on psychology, ethics, law, language, and religion that continue to challenge modern thinkers and exercise a profound influence on Western thought. A classic treatise of philosophy, Leviathan is critical reading for anyone who wishes to examine the human mind through the prisms of government and society
The elements of law, natural and politic : part I, Human nature, part II, De corpore politico ; with Three lives by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
128 editions published between 1684 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,581 libraries worldwide
"Thomas Hobbes was the first great philosopher to write in English. His account of the human condition, first developed in The Elements of Law (1640), which comprises Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, is a direct product of the intellectual and political strife of the seventeenth century. It is also a remarkably penetrating look at human nature, and a still relevant analysis of the fears and self-seeking that result in the war of 'each against every man'. Hobbes sets out the main lines of his general philosophy, later augmented in De Corpore, and the moral and political philosophy later made famous in Leviathan." "This is the first complete popular edition of Human Nature and De Corpore Politico, and it includes chapters from De Corpore and 'Three Lives', two from Hobbes's original Latin. These have never before been published together in English. Book jacket."--Jacket
Behemoth ; or, The long Parliament by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
131 editions published between 1679 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,503 libraries worldwide
"Behemoth is Thomas Hobbes's narrative of the English Civil Wars from the beginning of the Scottish revolution in 1637 to the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660, and is his only composition to address directly the history of the events which formed the context of his writings in Leviathan and elsewhere on sovereignty and the government of the Church. Although presented as an account of past events, it conceals a vigorous attack on the values of the religious and political establishment of Restoration England. This is the first fully scholarly edition of the work, and the first new edition of the text since 1889. Based on Hobbes's own presentation manuscript, it includes for the first time an accurate transcription of the passages which Hobbes had deleted in the text, and notes made by early readers."--Publisher description

On the citizen by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
22 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 546 libraries worldwide
"De Cive (On the Citizen) is the first full exposition of the political thought of Thomas Hobbes, the greatest English political philosopher. Professors Tuck and Silverthorne have undertaken the first complete translation since 1651, a rendition long thought (in error) to have been at least sanctioned by Hobbes himself. This new translation is both accurate and accessible: it is accompanied by a full glossary of Latin terms, a chronology, a bibliography and an expository introduction. Throughout, the editors have emphasized consistency in the translation and usage of Hobbes's basic conceptual vocabulary, respecting Hobbes's own concern for accurate definition of terms."--Jacket
The metaphysical system of Hobbes as contained in twelve chapters from his "Elements of philosophy concerning body," and in briefer extracts from his "Human nature" and "Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
43 editions published between 1905 and 2017 in English and German and held by 472 libraries worldwide
Elementa philosophica de cive by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
147 editions published between 1646 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 469 libraries worldwide
De Cive ('On the citizen') was first published in 1642 under the title Elementorum philosophiae sectio tertia de cive, and one of Hobbes major works. It anticipates the classical republican line of argument in the better-known Leviathan. The famous phrase Bellum omnium contra omnes (war of all against all) appeared first in De Cive. This work comprises three parts: Libertas (liberty), Imperium (dominion), and Religio (religion). In the first part, Hobbes describes man natural condition, dealing with the natural laws; in the second, the necessity of establishing a stable government is indicated. Finally, in the third part, the most important statements are backed up theologically. De Cive was finished in November 1641 - before the English Civil War. The book was published in Latin in 1642; a revised edition appeared in 1647. It was translated into English, entitled Philosophicall Rudiments Concerning Government and Society (published in 1651). Macdonald and Hargreaves in their Hobbes bibliography record only one edition for the year 1669; there were 2, with identical title pages, signatures, and paging. In this edition the catchword on the recto of the 2nd prelim. leaf is "nun;" in the other it is "sui." Cf. NUC
Hobbes and Bramhall : on liberty and necessity by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide

Reason of state, propaganda, and the Thirty Years' War by Noel Malcolm( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
"Acclaimed writer and historian Noel Malcolm presents his sensational discovery of a new work by Thomas Hobbes: a propaganda pamphlet on behalf of the Habsburg side in the Thirty Years' War, translated by Hobbes from a Latin original. Malcolm's book explores a fascinating episode in 17th century history"--Page 4 of cover
Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes( Book )
18 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 172 libraries worldwide
By a deep and careful analysis of the text, enabling a new printing history of Leviathan to be constructed, this edition demonstrates that the traditional picture is substantially wrong. Both the Bear and Ornaments editions contain corrections and changes by Hobbes himself and are therefore central to reconstructing his text. In their substantial Introduction the editors examine all previous editions of Leviathan (as well as the manuscript copy prepared for Hobbes as a presentation copy for the King), throwing light on its history and calling into question the assumptions of previous editors

36 editions published between 1839 and 1966 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
Of man, being the first part of Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes( file )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This first part of Hobbes's revoutionary tome centers on the analogy of the physical body to the body politic and would fundamentally influence every theorist of the modern era
A treatise of the laws of nature by Richard Cumberland( Book )
3 editions published between 1672 and 1720 in Latin and English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"Liberty Fund published the first modern edition of A Treatise of the Laws of Nature, based on John Maxwell's English translation of 1727. The edition includes Maxwell's extensive notes and appendixes. It also provides, for the first time in English, manuscript additions by Cumberland and material from Barbeyrac's 1744 French edition and John Towers's edition of 1750"--Jacket
Hobbes : morals and politics by D. D Raphael( Book )
2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in Undetermined and English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Hobbes' writing surprises, shocks, amuses and, above all stimulates criticism both of himself and of our conventional wisdom. This book, which is both expository and critical, concentrates on Hobbes' s ethical and political theory, but also considers the effect of these on his metaphysics. Updated, with a new preface and critical bibliography, this book will be particularly useful as an introduction for undergraduates
