Return to the Introduction to Thomas Hobbes and the detailed Table of Contents.
EDITION USED
Hobbes’s Leviathan reprinted from the edition of 1651 with an Essay by the Late W.G. Pogson
Smith (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1909).
We have included this edition of Hobbes, in addition to the 1839 edition from the
English Works, because it is the edition used by Michael Oakeshott in his discussion of
Hobbes in the collection of essays Hobbes on Civil Association (1937, 1975 Liberty
Fund) which we also have online.
