Reviews - What do customers think about La filosofia politica de Hobbes/ The Politcal Philosophy of Hobbes: Su fundamento y su genesis (Spanish Edition)?

An Essential Work On Hobbes  Jan 6, 2008
Leo Strauss, in his first printed work, does a superb job of distilling Hobbes essential ideas on man. By showing us the educational background of Hobbes and the philosopher's he read Strauss shows how Hobbes comes to believe that "man acts out of fear of death." The preservation of life is the primary goal of man in the "Hobbesian" world. "Vanity is the force that makes men blind, fear is the force which makes men see".

Strauss points out that Hobbes started out as a classical political philosopher who was influenced by his readings of Aristotle and Plato. Not until Hobbes was forty years old and when he discovered the works of Euclid, did Hobbes move away from the "humanist" view to a more "scientific" approach to political philosophy. Euclid teaches Hobbes that politics must have a philosophy; it can't just be studied through history. Hobbes criticism of Aristotle and historism was; "that the historian takes the great as his standard, while the philosopher is concerned with the right and true." Hobbes is the first to see clearly between "right" and "law" the state is founded on the "right" "law" is a mere consequence. Strauss points out that, "Hobbes becomes the first philosopher to realize that politics can be raised to the rank of science."

As a graduate student in philosophy and history, I recommend this book for advanced students of those disciplines, as well as politics. This book is not an easy read for the casual reader but is essential for one to understand the concept of political philosophy.
