Thomas Hobbes - Philosopher

Thomas Hobbes, born in Malmesbury, Wiltshire in 1588, was a polymath – a philosopher, poet, classicist, mathematician and scientist. His historical claim to fame lies in the fact that, by general consensus, he is England’s most important philosopher and a founder of modern political philosophy or what in many universities today is known as ‘political science’.
