Abstract

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).
