In this volume, Dr Bounce (University of Cambridge) introduces HobbesOCO ambitious philosophical project to discover the principles that govern the social world. Although we may dispute HobbesOCO immodest assessment that he successfully attained this goal, Bunce nevertheless captures the extraordinary enduring value of HobbesOCO work for the contemporary reader. Thomas HobbesOCOs name and the title of his most famous work, Leviathan, have come to be synonymous with the idea that the natural state of humankind is OCynasty, brutish, and shortOCO and only the intervention of a munificent overlord may spare men and women from this unenviable fate by imposing order where there would otherwise be chaos.

The problem that Hobbes formulated resonates through the centuries as the enduring dilemma of political organisation and social cooperation. Indeed it can be seen today in fields as diverse as theoretical game theory and international relations.
