Si la physique est une chose toute nouvelle, la philosophie politique l'est encore bien plus. Elle n'est pas plus ancienne que mon ouvrage le De Cive.
Épître dédicatoire du De Corpore
traduction Destutt de Tracy.
C'est seulement en devenant citoyen d'un État bien constitué que l'homme acquiert véritablement son droit.
Hegel, Principes de la Philosophie du Droit
" 1. Pour se faire une idée claire des éléments du droit naturel et de la politique, il est important de connaître la nature de l'homme, de savoir ce que c'est qu'un corps politique et ce que nous entendons par loi.
2. La nature de l'homme est la somme de ses facultés naturelles, telles que la nutrition, le mouvement, la génération, la sensibilité, la raison, etc. Nous nous accordons tous à nommer ces facultés naturelles; elles sont renfermées dans la notion de l'homme que l'on définit un animal raisonnable.
3. D'après les deux parties dont l'homme est composé, je distingue en lui deux espèces de facultés, celles du corps et celles de l'esprit.
4. Comme il n'est point nécessaire pour mon objet actuel d'entrer dans un détail anatomique et minutieux des facultés du corps, je me contenterai de les réduire à trois, la faculté nutritive, la faculté motrice ou de se mouvoir, et la faculté générative ou de se propager.
5. Quant aux facultés de l'esprit, il y en a deux espèces: connaître et imaginer, ou concevoir et se mouvoir." (extraits)
The Legendary Philosopher of All Times
Are you a philosopher? Do you have strong beliefs that you live on? I bet your answer is yes, of course. Well then, Leviathan is an interesting philosophical write-up which is divided into four parts. Part 1 is of Man, part 2 is of the commonwealth, part 3 is of a Christian commonwealth, and part 4 is of the kingdom of darkness.
The author expresses his belief in the power of the commonwealth. He expounds on the sovereign power in the absence of God´s interference, as seen in society. The book illustrates sovereignty as a body with joints and the people who perform the duty of nerves in the body. He stretches that the main purpose of a commonwealth is to have peace and habitual agreement between members. He acknowledges the immense power of a commonwealth.
In book one, the author portrays the state of nature as intrinsically violent soaked with fear. The state of nature says that it's every man against every man. People´s pursuit is to destroy each other. This is a horrendous state, and it, in turn, pushes people to look for peace. Leviathan's principle states how a conclusion through all the steps of an argument is dependent on previous steps.
In book four, the author highlights the need to attain a safe Christian commonwealth. The author, therefore, focuses on:
Thomas Hobbles was born in Westport, Wiltshire, England, in 1588. He began publishing his own work in 1610. He began partaking in philosophy group debates in Paris in the 1630s. Leviathan was referred to as one of his best works. It was published in 1651. He passed on in 1679 at 91 years. He suffered from a paralytic stroke prior to his death.
Leviathin - also known as Leviathin or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Commonwealth Ecclesiastical and Civil - was written by Thomas Hobbs and published in 1651. The name of the piece is derived from the biblical sea serpent, a monster of Jewish and old testament lore.
Written during the English Civil War of 1642-1651, the book advocates for a social contract and objective rule by a supreme monarch. It addresses the structure of society and legitimate government. It is one of the earliest and most influential examples of the social contract theory. Hobbs argues that civil war and the collateral damage associated with war could be completely avoided with the leadership of a strong, undivided government.
This beautiful reprint of the original essay is unabridged and unedited, preserving Leviathan for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
"And because in Deliberation the Appetites and Aversions are raised by foresight of the good and evill consequences, and sequels of the action whereof we Deliberate; the good or evill effect thereof dependeth on the foresight of a long chain of consequences, of which very seldome any man is able to see to the end. But for so far as a man seeth, if the Good in those consequences be greater than the evill, the whole chain is that which Writers call Apparent or Seeming Good. And contrarily, when the evill exceedeth the good, the whole is Apparent or Seeming Evill: so that he who hath by Experience, or Reason, the greatest and surest prospect of Consequences, Deliberates best himself; and is able, when he will, to give the best counsel unto others."
Leviathan or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Commonwealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil, commonly referred to as Leviathan, is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668).Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan. The work concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory. Written during the English Civil War (1642-1651), it argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature ("the war of all against all") could only be avoided by strong, undivided government.
