9780198709091: Thomas Hobbes: Leviathan: Editorial Introduction (Clarendon Edition of the Works of Thomas Hobbes)

Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan is one of the most important philosophical texts in the English language, and one of the most influential works of political philosophy ever written. This Introduction accompanies the first critical edition based on a full study of the manuscript and printing history, and the first edition to place the English text side by side with Hobbes's later Latin version of it. The volume provides a path-breaking account of the work's context, sources, and textual history. Noel Malcolm's definitive work will set the study of Hobbes's masterwork on a new basis.

About the Author:


Noel Malcolm is a Senior Research Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and General Editor of the Clarendon Edition of the Works of Thomas Hobbes. He has been a Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, Foreign Editor of The Spectator, and political columnist of the Daily Telegraph. He left journalism in 1995 in order to concentrate on scholarly research and writing. His books include short histories of Bosnia and Kosovo, and the Clarendon Edition of the correspondence of Thomas Hobbes. Since 1995 he has been a Visiting Fellow at St Antony's College, Oxford, a Visiting Lecturer at Harvard University, and Carlyle Lecturer at Oxford University. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2001.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "Everything about these three volumes is testimony to Malcolm's extraordinary scholarly range and precision. Just as impressive is the lucidity of Malcolm's own prose ... Specialists will find fresh insights on almost every page ... Malcolm's measured and gently
sceptical style is a perfect complement to Hobbe's own extravagant scepticism"

--David Runciman, Times Literary Supplement

"[Malcolm] fluently and authoritatively sets Leviathan and its author in their time and provides a keen and detailed study of Leviathan's genesis. Malcolm's volume itself is an enduring work of history."

--Ben Schwartz, The Atlantic

"Malcolm's edition of Leviathan aims to present the masterpiece as faithfully as possible. The result - a product of many years of labour - is an astonishing achievement of the highest scholarship. We have never before had so accurate and so richly annotated a version of the text, and it is
unlikely that there will ever be another that can match this edition."

--John Gray, New Statesman
