196 Book Reviews / Hobbes Studies 24 (2011) 189–215 Otfried Höﬀ e, Th omas Hobbes. Munich: Beck, 2010, 251 p. ISBN 9783406600210, paperback (€14.95). Th e philosophy of Hobbes has received much attention in the last decades, both from philoso- phers and historians of political thought. Th e still growing interest in Hobbes has consolidated, if not re-established, Hobbes’s prominent place within academic teaching and has added to the need for accessible introductions to Hobbes’s thought. Otfried Höﬀ e’s Th omas Hobbes is a new German introduction, meant to supplement, or perhaps supplant, the existing introductions by Wolfgang Kersting (Hamburg: Junius, 2009) and Herfried Münkler (Frankfurt/M.: Campus, 2001). Höﬀ e has as much expertise as few others in providing introductory studies to leading ﬁ gures in the history of philosophy. His two earlier books in the Beck series on great thinkers whose editor he is have seen several editions and paved the way for many students to the philosophies of Aristotle and Kant. While these two thinkers may have been the focus of his work, Höﬀ e has also shown a permanent interest in Hobbes, his publications on Hobbes dating back as far as the early 1980s. In
