Although best known for political philosophy, much of Thomas Hobbes's work can be read as historical commentary, taking up questions in the philosophy of history and the rhetorical possibilities of written history. Indeed, Hobbes's concern with history as a discipline was central, life-long and profound. This book explores the relation of Hobbes' work to history as a branch of learning. Written by leading Hobbes scholars from five countries, the book is arranged into two sections. The first explores Hobbes's view of the nature of history, reconstructing his ideas from his uses of history as well as his comments about its nature and method. The second part examines the works of history written by Hobbes, from his first publication, a translation of Thucydides history of the Peloponnesian wars, to his classic interpretation of the English Civil War, Behemoth This book is an indispensable text for anybody with a scholarly interest in the thought of Thomas Hobbes. It will also be of interest to those working in the disciplines of philosophy, politics, history and law.
