Thomas Hobbes is a great English philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of political philosophy. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers as Isaac Newton, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Francis Bacon, and Jean Rousseau. Their collected thoughts has had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

In 1668, Hobbes completed BEHEMOTH: THE HISTORY OF THE CAUSES OF THE CIVIL WARS OF ENGLAND, AND OF THE COUNSELS AND ARTIFICES BY WHICH THEY WERE CARRIED ON FROM THE YEAR 1640 TO THE YEAR 1660. It is a great treatise on what will happen when the very worst abuses of government is a reality. It is regarded as a Hobbes’s expression why that English Civil War happened. From science of human nature perspective, Hobbes correctly explained why English Civil War took place because he applied his rational understanding on the all sides of the war. Hobbes’s Behemoth is one of the best in detailing the events of the English Civil War by concluding the religious issues of the war and applying his philosophy to explain the cause of the catastrophe of the war.

Thomas Hobbes expressed the last words with a great pride and optimism to our future "A great leap in the dark" in his final moments of life. He is forever remembered as essential enabler, reformer, and contributor for that great leap in the dark. His work has produced great influence on modern political philosophy. His view became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical voice and his influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about political philosophy and the English Civil War by Thomas Hobbes, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy on the planet.
