Leviathan, one of the most famous works of political philosophy, was written by Thomas Hobbes in 1651 in order to justify absolute sovereignty. In the first part of the treatise, he lays out a sequence of definitions and follows by using those definitions to explain that nature is anarchic and human life ?solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.? In order to live in a peaceful society, Hobbes believes that men must make a contract with a sovereign who maintains order through absolute power.
