"Life Lessons from Hobbes." Hannah Dawson. Pan Macmillan. September 2013. --- Born in Wiltshire in 1588, Thomas Hobbes was an English philosopher whose masterpiece, Leviathan, established the foundation for Western political thought and inspired both hate and awe. He revealed the darker side of human nature and the value of authority, but he also showed us how to flourish, how to be fearless and free, so that our lives need not be ‘nasty, brutish and short’. This short and accessible guide from The School of Life series presents insights from his greatest work. Reviewed by Jacob Phillips.
