About this title


The concept of power shapes both the political philosophy and the general worldview of the modern age. For this reason, two areas of philosophy - ontology and political philosophy - which were hitherto treated separately, must be brought together. Freedom, Equality, Power brings out the ontological framework shared by the political philosophies of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau. In the last chapter (The Ontological Consequences), the author uses the results of his earlier analyses as the stepping stone for developing some themes belonging to ontology in general.

About the Author:

The Author: Piotr Hoffman studied philosophy in Poland and in France. He taught philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley and is now Professor of Philosophy at the University of Nevada, Reno. His most recent books are Violence in Modern Philosophy and The Quest for Power: Hobbes, Descartes, and the Emergence of Modernity.
