“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Thomas Hobbes (English Philosopher)
Date of Birth:
5 April 1588
Date of Death:
4 December 1679
Thomas Hobbes was an English philosopher, whose famous 1651 book Leviathan established the foundation for most of Western political philosophy.
Hobbes is remembered today for his work on political philosophy, although he contributed to a diverse array of fields, including history, geometry, physics of gases, theology, ethics, general philosophy, and political science. But nonetheless Hobbes's account of human nature as self-interested cooperation has proved to be an enduring theory in the field of philosophical anthropology.
