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 1640, Hobbes completed and published his THE ELEMENTS OF LAW, NATURAL, AND POLITIC. It is regarded as the first great and well received philosophical work written in English by Thomas Hobbes. It is an English product of the intellectual and political revolution of the seventeenth century. In this book, Hobbes did a permanently relevant analysis of the fears of self-seeking that resulted in the war of “each against every man” and laid out the foundational lines of his natural philosophy that were further explored in his DE CORPORE and of his moral and political philosophy later made him more famous in LEVIATHAN.

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