Discussions about “Leviathan” in Correspondence of Thomas Hobbes
2016
The famous "Leviathan" (1651). Thomas Hobbes (1588 - 1679) had a profound influence on all subsequent political thought -so writes Richard Tukki, his biographer, in a comment to the Cambridge edition of this work (1996). However, during the existence of Hobbes' conception, never established a unified approach to how and in what way should be interpreted or that his theses, and many modern scholars make a grand job of rethinking the role of the heritage of this great thinker. This surprising is that critical work on the assessment and analysis of correspondence of Thomas Hobbes is not so much, so the purpose of this paper, if you try to define it more specifically, will be the following: to find out what the theses of Hobbes designated them "Leviathan" caused the greatest interest among his correspondents. Implementation of this goal will enable us to make one of the most important steps in the development of this heritage, because without creating a classification so is difficult to understand how this power can help us to expand our understanding of the development of the ideas of Thomas Hobbes, especially if we are interested in the intellectual debate context around " Leviathan.
