Hobbes and the social contract tradition / Jean Hampton.

1st paperback ed.

Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1988, c1986.

Abstract: This major study of Hobbes' political philosophy draws on recent developments in game and decision theory to explore whether the thrust of the argument in Leviathan, that it is in the interests of the people to create a ruler with absolute power, can be shown to be cogent. Professor Hampton has written a book of vital importance to political philosophers, political and social scientists, and intellectual historians.
