This new edition of Hobbe's masterpiece is uniquely suited to meet the needs of both student and scholar. It offers a brilliant introduction by Edwin Curley, modernised spelling and punctuation of the text, and a key annotative feature found in no other edition: the inclusion, along with historical and interpretive notes, of the most significant variants between the English version of 1651 and the Latin version of 1668.

The bad news is, I hate reading classical philosophy because when the philosopher says something I disagree with, I want to argue with him and I can't because he's dead. In this case, Hobbes just defended the idea that if you agree to pay ransom to someon...
