Leo Strauss' "The Political Philosophy of Hobbes" deservedly ranks among his most widely acclaimed works. In it Strauss argues that the basis for Hobbes' natural and political science is his interest in 'self-knowledge of man as he really is.' The pieces collected in this book, each written prior to that classic volume, complement that account. Thus, at long last, this book allows us to have a complete picture of Strauss' interpretation of Hobbes, the thinker pivotal to the fundamental theme of his life's work: the conflicting demands of philosophy and revelation, or, as he termed it, 'the theologico-political problem.' It is no exaggeration to say that Strauss' work on Hobbes' critique of religion is essential to his analysis of Hobbes' political philosophy, and vice versa. This volume will spark new interest in Hobbes' explication of the Bible and in his understanding of religion by revealing previously neglected dimensions and motives of Hobbes' 'theology.'
