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.

His Leviathan is regarded as the greatest work of political philosophy in English and the first great work of philosophy in English. In Leviathan, Hobbes declared that the civil government was granted with a power to control its citizens and that the sovereign had the right to determine which religion was to be practiced in a commonwealth. Edward Howard, the appointed King's standard-bearer of Henry VIII, recognized the power and danger of Hobbes’s arguments and expressed his concern of Leviathan. In return, Hobbes wrote the LETTER TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE EDWARD HOWARD to explain and argue the fundamentals of his beliefs about language, epistemology, religion, and its relation between religion and politics.

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 the thoughts of natural philosophy and political philosophy by Thomas Hobbes, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy on the planet.
