Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury (5 April 1588 – 4 December 1679), in some older texts Thomas Hobbs of Malmsbury, was an English philosopher, best known today for his work on political philosophy.
Fear of things invisible in the natural seed of that which everyone in himself calleth religion. Thomas Hobbes
That weekend of heavy heart Of all the days of my life, I had never been so grieved over a country they call mine. Never had such devastation overwhelmed me. A grief that gushed out tears. The resultant effect was a feeling of hurling abuses and curses on the insensitive and wicked clique, for the pain inflicted on young Nigerians. But will curses yield any corrective effect? Can it deter them from unleashing such cruelty in future? Of course, it was not the first time of such wickedness. But can abuses scare and compel them to do the right? Can anything even send shivers in the spine? Do they ever get conscience-stricken? When a conscience is seared with a hot iron, then the Thomas Hobbes definition of life becomes the order. Life becomes 'short, nasty and brutish'. This has become the situation in Nigeria. Life has long ceased to be sacred in this country. No more value for life. My heart has remained heavy over the Nigerian Immigration Service murder of Saturday, March 15, 2014. Though there has been c ...

The World Over with Raymond Arroyo on EWTN “The life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short,” said Thomas Hobbes. In Macbeth, Shakespeare wrote that life is “a tale told by an *** full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Pretty depressing stuff!... Not a very encouraging note on which to start a new year! But, entering a new year with all its potential for good or ill and all its uncertainties, is a good time to ask: What is the purpose of life?... Why are we here?... Why did humanity come into being?... Are we just an accident of natural selection?... Are we, to quote a very green New Age writer, a cancer on the face of Gaia (Mother Earth) - bringing ecological disaster?... On a more personal level, what is the purpose of my life?... Why am I here on earth?... Is there anything beyond domestic duties, family relationships, trying to keep healthy, working, having some fun, going on holiday?...All of these things are important. But have you asked yourself: Is that it – and then ...
Thomas Hobbes is all like: "Day-um. But yeah, it's pretty much like how I pictured it." :)
Wondering if Thomas Hobbes had extreme dog styling in mind when he enumerated the consequences of stable political authority.
I get asked questions about religion a lot. What religion are you? Do you believe in God? Are you atheist? Agnostic? I even have been asked, "If you aren't religious how can you have morals?" I think my thoughts are often mis-explained due to their complexity, but I am none of these and of course I have morals. In light of these questions, I’d like to pose some clarity on my thoughts regarding religion because I think they are important to religion and religious discussion. My experience with people from various faiths varies. There are many religions. Within these religions, there are many people who don’t strictly follow what “followers believe in.” Many Jews, like myself, don’t keep Kosher, many Muslims don’t pray 5 times a day, many Buddhists disagree on the path to Nirvana, and I won’t even get into how many denominations of Christianity there are and how many disagreements there are even within these denominations... Point being, no matter how much you dig into religion, within a relig ...

The use and end of reason is not the finding of the sum and truth of one. Thomas Hobbes
Life by nature,according to Thomas Hobbes,was brutish,nasty and cruel.Every man competes 4Survival.Life then was dedicate 4 survival of the fittest was the Rule!!!
According to Thomas Hobbes, "men are beastial by nature". If the "beast" in men is not checked by law and sanctions, the whole system will turn to animal kingdom. From fornication/adultery to homosexuality and then to bestiality. The other day a man was wedding his dog. God punish the devil and his principal collaborators in the corridors of influence.

In other news I'm handling the breakup I initiated with bad jokes and reading philosophy written by Thomas Hobbes.
LOOKING BACK When I was a kid,I used to worry about the prospects of surviving in this harsh and unforgiving country. Though as a kid,I was obsessed with a la dolce vita lifestyle. With my peers then,we inveterated in fanciful and captivating activities. We never had anything to worry about. We preferred to play all day without food. But anytime I was chanced to frolick and waltz with my avuncular brothers,I had to go back to my decripit bed to critically ruminate on the potential manifestations of the future. Being with them,discussion about the ladies' sexual and moral depravity was usually caviled first,followed by the issue of standard of living in a nasty society. As an ignoramus about ladies' matter then,I hearkened strenously to the latter issue. I desired for a bright future. I wanted to have a splendiferous tomorrow. A posterity totally void of elusive challenges and adamatine encumberances. Then,I was worried because I was callowed. I was tentative about tomorrow because trepidation had imprison ...

A Democracy is a government by the People, everyone gets their say. The Democratic party in America, isn't being democratic. Liberalism begins with the individual, which has to do with individual rights. Individual rights are the foundation for a legitimate government. The Democratic party in America isn't being liberal. Regardless of culture, race, time or place, everyone has six mental/physical stages that are naturally experienced. Each stage exemplifies being democratic and liberal. By seeking truth the Ancient Greeks automatically created the first democracy. With reason and reason alone the age of Enlightenment came about by focusing on individual rights as a way of life. The major goal was to free oneself from political shackles, and think for yourself. Then in time master philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, and John Locke promoted natural rights, a democracy, a Nation based upon freedom, liberty, and justice for all - America. Moral norms are based upon inherited qualities and if ...
The due process clause of the Constitution was partly based on common law and on Magna Carta (1215), which had become a foundation of English liberty against arbitrary power wielded by a tyrant. Both the influence of Edward Coke and William Blackstone were evident at the Convention. In his Institutes of the Laws of England, Edward Coke interpreted Magna Carta protections and rights to apply not just to nobles, but to all British subjects. In writing the Virginia Charter of 1606, he enabled the King in Parliament to give those to be born in the colonies all rights and liberties as though they were born in England. William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England were the most influential books on law in the new republic. British political philosopher John Locke following the Glorious Revolution was a major influence expanding on the contract theory of government advanced by Thomas Hobbes. Locke advanced the principle of consent of the governed in his Two Treatises of Government. Government's duty u ...

Back again! discusses the controversial 'Leviathan' by Hobbes on
Life is a chain of uncertainity,misery and experience.Man's life is short,nasty and brutish.who is exempted from this uncertainity? ( Thomas Hobbes )
"For Seeing Life Is But A Motion Of Limbs,why may we not say that all Automata(engines that move themselves by springs and wheels as does a watch) have artificial life? For what is the heart,but a string..and the nerves,but so many springs...and the joints,but so many wheels,giving motion to the whole body." -Thomas Hobbes
"It is not wisdom but Authority that makes a law." ~ Thomas Hobbes
they made it look so easy. HOBBES IS NOT EASY GOTTDAMN. IF ONLY there were an easier way to "READ" THOMAS HOBBES.

"That everyman, ought to endeavor Peace, as far as he has hope of obtaining it; and when he cannot obtain it, that he may seek, and use, all helps, and advantages of War." Thomas Hobbes ~Leviathan (in my 2 chains voice TRUE)
Sovereignty is the quality of having an independent authority over a geographic area, such as a territory. It can be found in a power to rule and make laws that rests on a political fact for which no pure legal definition can be provided. In theoretical terms, the idea of "sovereignty", historically, from Socrates to Thomas Hobbes, has always necessitated a moral imperative on the entity exercising it. For centuries past, the idea that a state could be sovereign was always connected to its ability to guarantee the best interests of its own citizens. Thus, if a state could not act in the best interests of its own citizens, it could not be thought of as a “sovereign” state. May we study together? ~Prezz Pressley 2014
Geometry is the only science that it hath pleased God hitherto to bestow on mankind" Thomas Hobbes
May have just referenced Thomas Hobbes AND the moral ambiguity of Angel in season one Buffy in one song. IT'S GOOD TO BE WRITING AGAIN.
"by this institution of a Commonwealth every particular man is author of all the sovereign doth; and consequently he that complaineth of injury from his sovereign complaineth of that whereof he himself is author, and therefore ought not to accuse any man but himself; no, nor himself of injury, because to do injury to oneself is impossible."- Thomas Hobbes
I am proud of myself, and others, including some of the more famous people that I inspired and influenced: Vincenzo Viviani, Pierre Gassendi, Johannes Kepler, Evangelista Torricelli, Italo Calvino, Arthur Van Hoff and Thomas Hobbes.
"There is no such thing as perpetual tranquillity of mind while we live here; because life itself is but motion, and can never be without desire, nor without fear, no more than without sense."- Thomas Hobbes
In love you Thomas Hobbes (17th century Philosopher). My just enough adequate knowledge of your political theory has saved me!
In 1984, Richard Tremblay began tracking 1,000 kindergarten-aged boys from Montreal’s poorest neighborhoods. Today, those kids are in their mid-30s and Tremblay’s study is one of the longest, and largest, longitudinal experiments conducted. One of Tremblay’s more surprising results is the suggestion that the peak of aggressive behavior in humans, as measured by his subjects’ willingness to resort to violence, generally occurs around the ages of two and three. Thomas Hobbes made this point in 1647: “An evil man is rather like a sturdy boy, or a man of childish mind, and evil is simply want of reason at an age when it normally accrues to men by nature governed by discipline and experience of harm.”
My ACS professor suggested that we get drunk and read Thomas Hobbes' autobiography. I guess that's ONE idea of a good time.

This is going to suck. The theme for your third paper, due in Unit 7 is "Social and Moral Policies of Government." You will choose to view the movie Grapes of Wrath, the movie Thelma and Louise, or another movie that has been approved by your instructor. You will then interpret the movie and relate one of two of the movie's characters to the philosophies of Thomas Hobbes and Jean Jacques Rousseau. You will relate your character selections to the following: Thomas Hobbes and his theory of the state of nature and government as an artificial creation. Jean Jacques Rousseau and government and society as the inhibitors of our natural freedoms. Thomas Hobbes Thomas Hobbes lived from 1588 to 1679 and his best known work is called Leviathan. The word Leviathan means an artificially created animal. For example, in older English translations a leviathan was created to swallow Jonah. It was not a whale which is part of the natural world. The leviathan was a specific creature created by God for a specific purpose. An ...

". . . Society has bought just enough of the Marxist snake oil that it lacks the requisite fear of God to separate good from evil - and future generations will curse us for our ignorance. There is nothing noble about "progressivism". There is nothing noble about avoiding pain today only to pass it on to your children and the children of others." - Michael Smith: "A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires." ~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninius Because the secular humanist approach of the contemporary "progressives" focuses on incorporating the Marxist idea that religion is the "opiate of the masses", it necessarily creates a regressive and terminal view of life. If you don't believe in God or that He is good, you have no fear of destroying posterity nor do you fear an afterlife where there will be judgement to higher standards than man ...

Thought for Food: Who will save the timid and timorous negroes from fusty foreign religious dogmas that nourish fatalism and relish mayhem. Those who foisted these hackneyed doctrines on us have since transcended religious bigotry and moved to space to colonise other planets while the *** race is retreating to the religious state of nature where, according to Thomas Hobbes, life is nasty, brutish, and short.
"During the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in a condition which is called war, and such a war as is of every man against every man" - Thomas Hobbes Hobbes was right on yet didn't fully know it. He spoke politically, yet this explains why we constantly need to first remember the mighty acts of God and second press into Him to see the greater things Jesus spoke of so we may truly live daily in a place of awe of who He is!
Ian Shapiro - Democracy Man: The Life and Work of Robert A. Dahl "Dahl was no Plato, Aristotle, or Thomas Hobbes, but he added something new to the armchair reflection leavened by illuminating anecdote that had characterized the enterprise for millennia: the systematic use of evidence to evaluate rigorously stated theoretical claims. Generations of Dahl’s successors have developed both theories and empirical methods in multiple directions since he produced his innovative works in the 1950s and 1960s, sometimes in ways that he found less than congenial. Few would deny that they stood on Dahl’s shoulders"
By desire we always signify the absence of the object: by love most commonly the presence of the same. so also by aversion we signify the absence , and by hate, the presence of the object --- Thomas Hobbes

The idea of a distinction between state/government and civil society is a relatively new one in the history of political thought, going back to the work of Thomas Hobbes in the seventeenth century. How do you suppose not being familiar with this view may color one's political perceptions?

Surin Pitsuwan "Stepping back from the brink" Special to The Nation February 17, 2014 No leader is indispensable, especially when holding on to power causes such division Thailand has been sliding fast into an abyss. A state of lawlessness and growing signs of a failing state are ominously moving towards us with increasing velocity. But it is not too late to stop political and economic disintegration if we pull together and act in solidarity now. Never before in our history have things become so alarmingly confused and the future so bleak. Patriotism has become a threat to the powers that be. A meditating and praying crowd is deemed as performing an anti-government act. Residences of prominent business personalities and contrary views of our respected citizens have become targets and triggers of violence. This is a state of nature in which life has, in the words of prominent English philosopher Thomas Hobbes, become "solitary, nasty, brutish and short". Indeed, life in Thailand has been "solitary and nast ...
human judgment is unreliable, and needs to be guided by science. Our judgments tend to be distorted by self-interest or by the pleasures and pains of the moment. We may share the same basic passions, but the various things of the world affect us all very differently; and we are inclined to use our feelings as measures for others By Thomas Hobbes
Without rules and means of enforcing them, people would not bother to create anything of value. (Thomas Hobbes).
Respice finem; in all your actions look often upon what you would have, as the thing that directs all your thoughts in the way to attain it--- Thomas Hobbes
Bitterness propels people to treat others with contempt and violence ~Thomas Hobbes
Reading an excerpt from Thomas Hobbes, "The Leviathan." College reading is tough, but strangely worth it.

: I frequently face smart alecks who tend to anglicize my father's name (Tufail), thinking that this would affect me negatively...especially when they are about to lose in an argument with me. I pity these people as this tells me how ignorant some people can really be, because if they were at all exposed to worthwhile knowledge, they would realize that my English-educated grandfather had enough knowledge to place a high honor to this namesake to impart it on his fifth son, and seventh child. Ibn Tufail (a native of Spain's great Andalusian civilization in the 12th century was a polymath - philosopher, novelist and physician.

Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies GST 222 Introduction Conflict, as a social reality has been part and parcel of human existence. Whether it is in the "State of Nature" as described by Thomas Hobbes, or the history of ancient or modern empires, or even in contemporary history, marked by the emergence of the modern nation-state, all have witnessed one form of conflict or the other. Africa, like other continents of the world has witnessed series of conflicts. Some of the conflicts witnessed by the continent are the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa; the civil wars in Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, and Democratic Republic of Congo, among others; and communal *** ethno- religious conflicts such as those experienced in Nigeria – the Tiv-Jukun, Ife-Modakeke, Pan-Gamai, and Hausa/ Fulani-Birom, Afizere and Anaguta, among several others.It is due to the effects of conflict in terms of either moving a society forward or b ...
There is one thing I hate [ with every fibre of my being] about my generation, it's a generation full of hedonists who have zero concern about intellectual affairs.

Umar etc. Hey! It's time we pick my generation.
“A Covenant not to defend myself from force, by force, is always void. For… no man can transfer or lay down his Right to save himself from Death.” Thomas Hobbes, 17th century English political philosopher
When Thomas Hobbes postulated that "Man is naturally born wicked" he must have studied the Nigerian system where people divert funds which ultimately causes people to suffer, die etc. It also extends to how people in authority eat three meals per day while the electorate only feed once a day. "Nigerian rulers not leaders are naturally born wicked"
The philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote that "the life of mankind is nasty, brutish, and short." While the content of that quote may still hold true today more than 300 years later, I refuse to believe that that whole of humanity is condemned to it, especially when you are in love with someone. There is nothing more special, nothing more proud to cherish, or redeeming than the love between two people, that has so far, withstood the differences of personality and time. Sienna Little, I will continue to walk down the road with you, as long as your hand is in mine. I love you, Happy Valentine's Day.
The Ship Of Theseus Suppose we have a complete wooden ship, and one day we replace one of its wooden planks with an aluminum one. Most people would agree that the ship survives this operation; that is to say, its identity remains unchanged. But suppose that we then replace a second plank, and then a third, until our wooden ship is made entirely of aluminum. Is this the same ship that we started with? If not, when did it change? Thomas Hobbes adds a wrinkle: Suppose that, as we did all this refurbishing, someone had gathered up all the discarded wooden planks and used them to assemble a second ship. What are we to make of this? “This, without doubt, had also been the same numerical ship with that which was at the beginning; and so there would have been two ships numerically the same, which is absurd.” And philosopher Roderick Chisholm adds another: “Let us suppose that the captain of the original ship had solemnly taken the vow that, if his ship were ever to go down, he would go down with it. What, n ...

The Packers did do a couple things well, notably Eddie Lacy rushing for 150 yards and James Starks chipping in for another 40 but without Jay Cutler being, well Jay Cutler, the Bears played an efficient and mistake free game with Josh McCown under center and ultimately won 27-20.

On this wonderful birthday of the Federal Reserve, we should give thanks to Thomas Hobbes for his foresight into the Leviathan that was created 100 years ago. If like me though you are not celebrating the birthday of the evil system, here are 100 reasons the Fed should be abolished. 1. The Federal Reserve System constantly decreases the value of our dollar by printing money out of thin air. (inflation) 2. Graph: The value of a $1 Federal Reserve Note in 1913 dollars (the year the Fed was created). 3. The Fed even recognizes its inflationary activity. The Federal Reserve Bank ofBostonsays: “When you or I write a check there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check, but when the Federal Reserve writes a check there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money.” 4. American economist Irving Fisher said: “Thus, our national circulating medium is now at the mercy of loan transactions of banks, which lend, not money, but p ...
Thomas Hobbes' LEVIATHAN is OK, but I much prefer George P. Cosmatos' 1989 remake with Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson.
I w as reading this article by one of my lecturers on death penalty. In this article , he described seven persons as "the greatest thinkers of the 19th century : Immanuel Kant , John Locke , Thomas Hobbes, ,J J Rousseau , Montequieu , John Stuart Mill & Jeremy Bentham ... I found it intruiging that he was actually able to single out 7 persons and describe them as such. Albeit the fact that it is arguable if these people are actually the 7 greatest thinkers of the 19th century , there are some questions I would want us to as ourselves as individuals . How do your friends describe you ? What is the first impression you create in the minds of those who come into contact with you for the first time? What specific impact have you made wherever you are so that in your absence , people will say if only you were here ? Can u be described as one of the best cooks , architects , students , servants , or one of the greatest in whatever field of human endeavour you find yourself ?

I'm not even joking, I am writing a Thomas Hobbes and David Hume fanfic for my final.
Are you making straight the Lord's way to you or blocking it? This is one of Aesop’s best known fables: A Wolf meets a Lamb straying from the flock. The wolf decides not to pounce on the Lamb right away but first to give the Lamb a reason why he, the Wolf, should eat him. So he says to the Lamb: “Hi, it was you who insulted me last year.” “Actually,” replies the Lamb in a mournful voice, “I was not born then.” Then says the Wolf, “But you feed in my pasture.” “No, sir,” replies the Lamb, “I have not yet tasted grass.” “Besides,” says the Wolf, “You drink at my well.” “No,” exclaims the Lamb, “I never yet drank water, for as yet my mother's milk is both food and drink to me.” At that the Wolf seized him and ate him, saying, “Well! I won't stay without supper, even if you refute every one of my accusations.” Aesop is not the only one who sees human relationships in terms of wolves and lambs. The philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, said about the human condition that “ ...

Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Social Contract Theories talk about the people and that is where integrity, principles, fair play, equal opportunities, poverty alleviation, learning, decency, moderation, social welfare, democracy, rule of law but in Nigeria democracy today we the elite works with Thomas Hobbes and John Locke Social Contract Theories where power belongs to the leaders alone and that is where opportunism, betrayal, greed, covetousness, ethnicity, cabals, aggression, licentiousness, immoderate acquisition, authoritarianism, impunity etc. Please can someone identify by telling us here what is the structural plans behind Delta state government and its friends states today and that is why all we are here to debate is about friends in power or enemies and not about the people.
The Middle Ages to the Nineteenth Century Scholasticism, the high achievement of medieval philosophy, was based on Aristotelian principles. St. Thomas Aquinas was the foremost of the schoolmen, just as St. Augustine was the earlier spokesman for the church of pure belief. The Renaissance, with its new physics, astronomy, and humanism, revolutionized philosophic thought. René Descartes is considered the founder of modern philosophy because of his attempt to give the new science a philosophic basis. The other great rationalist systems of the 17th cent., especially those of Baruch Spinoza and G. W. von Leibniz, were developed in response to problems raised by Cartesian philosophy and the new science. In England empiricism prevailed in the work of Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and David Hume, as well as that of George Berkeley, who was the outstanding idealist. The philosophy of Immanuel Kant achieved a synthesis of the rationalist and empiricist traditions and was in turn developed in the direction of idealism ...
Nature made men equal, in the faculties of body and mind; as that though there be found. Therefore if any two men desire the same thing, which nevertheless they cannot both enjoy, they become enemies; and in the way to their end endeavor to destroy, or subdue one another. Because of this, there is no way for any man to secure himself. Men in a state of nature, that is a state without civil government, are in a war of all against all in which life is hardly worth living. The way out of this desperate state is to make a social contract and establish the state to keep order and peace. Nothing could be worst than a life without the protection of the State. -reading Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan while reflecting upon the state of Eastern Visayas, Philippines.
Popular sovereignty: Popular sovereignty or the sovereignty of the people is the principle that the legitimacy of the state is created and sustained by the will or consent of its people, who are the source of all political power. It is closely associated with republicanism and social contract philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes, John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Popular sovereignty expresses a concept and does not necessarily reflect or describe a political reality. It is usually contrasted with the concept of parliamentary sovereignty, and with individual sovereignty. Benjamin Franklin expressed the concept when he wrote, "In free governments, the rulers are the servants and the people their superiors and sovereigns." The term "squatter sovereignty" is used by Jefferson Davis in his book A Short History of the Confederate States of America. This term referred to the influx of new citizens in order to manipulate the ultimate sovereign votes. At the 1860 Democratic National Convention, William L. ...
via Matthew Egan Three Definitions of Freedom Political theorist Isaiah Berlin in his essay titled "Two Concepts of Liberty" and Marxist humanist/Frankfurt School psychoanalyst Erich Fromm in his book "Escape from Freedom" hit upon the distinction between two definitions/types of freedom: freedom as non-interference (negative freedom or "freedom from") and freedom as self-mastery (positive freedom or "freedom to"). The distinctions aren't clear cut, but they're good enough for analysis. Freedom as non-interference is central to the liberal conception of politics and has been since John Locke and Thomas Hobbes. It's not property rights nor voting rights, but non-interference from external constraint. As Thomas Hobbes, the author of "Leviathan" and pioneer of social contract theory, puts it, "a free man is he that in those things which by his strength and wit he is able to do is not hindered to do what he hath the will to do". You are free to do what you capable of doing. Most Enlightenment philosophers saw ...
"Nothing divine lets itself be externally enforced." - Carl Schmitt, The Leviathan in the State Theory of Thomas Hobbes (1938)
I need a break from terrorism research. Wanna be depressed? Read Philip Zimbardo's A Situationist Perspective on the Psychology of Evil. Bottom line--we all suck (or have the potential to suck with a very slight push.) But I knew that already--thank you, St. Augustine, Machiavelli and Thomas Hobbes. (Zimbardo, for those unfamiliar, is the dude who brought us the Stanford Prison Experiment circa 1971.) And if you REALLY want to drink heavily tonight, dive into Milgram's work on obedience. Think electric shocks. It'll make you never want to leave the house. I think my next career will involve puppies, or flowers, or some combination of puppies and flowers.

A few days back, there was a humorist post related to old age purporting that love and study should not belong to the domain of the old. True...to a great extent. After all we have gerontology not for nothing. It is basic to our structure to grow older, each second, each day. And it's not everyone's cup of tea to be someone like N. D. Tiwary. However, it's difficult to identify exact age point at which we begin getting old. Is it 40 ? 50 ? 60 ? This leads to the vital question : what is being old. An old person must have feeble memory, weak limbs and overall distaste to any thing new plus of course a huge load of life years on his back. But the British philosopher Thomas Hobbes translated Homer's Odyssey into English at the age of 87 and then one year later, the Iliad. American inventor Thomas Edison applied for his last patent at the age of 83, and the British conductor Leopold Stokowski negotiated a new five-year contract with his record label at the age of 95. The Russian lyric poet and novelist Bor .. ...
"The Age of Louis the XIV", Volume VIII of "The Story of Civilization". "On September 7, 1651, John Evylyn, from the Paris apartment of Thomas Hobbes, watched the procession that escorted the boy monarch, now thirteen, to the ceremony that was to mark the end of his minority. "A young Apollo," the Englishman described him. "He went almost the whole way with his hat in hand, saluting the ladies and aclamators who filled the windows with their beauty, and the air with Vive le Roi!" Louis might then have taken over full authority from Mazarin, but he respected his minister's suave resourcefulness, and allowed him to hold the reins for nine more years. Nevertheless, when the Cardinal died, he confessed, "I do not know what I should have done if he had lived much longer." After Mazarin's death the heads of the departments came to Louis and asked to whom henceforth they should address themselves for instructions. He answered, with decisive simplicity, "To me." From that day (March 9, 16 ...

When the discussion goes beyond the simple expression of opinion, and the situation commands a decision of unanimous consent, the study of ethics as with any other academic discipline record, addresses the bar issue from yet another different angle, and may in fact shed some light. 3.) On issues where disagreements still remain possible, ethics alone, helps cut through and clarify a way of pursuing constructive dialogue. 4.) As ethics addresses the issues of moral philosophy, we discover not only what it is to be human, we discover what Human's do. And what do Humans do?

Altruism exists Day 16 – Learn something new. Today, in the limited amount of time that was unaccounted for by domestic duties, I applied my mind to learning about happiness and altruism. I haven’t been able to take in all that much, in fact only a single chapter of once book but it is a start. The following is just a little of what Mattieu Ricard has to say on the matter: • Belonging has significant bearing on the manifestation of altruism. • When we are happy we are more likely to engage in altruistic acts. • We feel pleasure in attaining our own ends but that is pleasure is short lived when compared to the enduring pleasure attained by exercising kindness to others. • Thomas Hobbes, a 17th century English philosopher, believed humans fundamentally selfish and selflessness was absent from behaviour. • Many evolutionary theorists believed that selfish genes have a higher probability to be transmitted to future generations. • Elliott Sober, contemporary philosopher of science, has shown t ...

To those of my friends who complain about Obama or the Republican party, I would recommend reading "The Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes (written during the English Civil War of the mid-1600's). I would pay particular attention to the concept of "social contract".
The name given to a particular theoretical approach to the study of international relations. According to its proponents, realism has been around for a very long time. Some scholars trace its intellectual origins all the way back to Thucydides, the chronicler of the Peloponnesian wars. Thucydides argued that the cause of the war between the Ath-enians and the Spartans (around 420 ) was an increase in Athenian military powerand the insecurity that it created among the Spartans. In making this and other observations about state behaviour, Thucy-dides is said to have begun one of the main traditions of thinking about international relations. Niccolo MacHiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, and Max Weber are also regarded as seminal thinkers in this intellectual tradi-tion, although it is quite possible to find statements by a large number of past philosophers, theologians, historians, and political commenta-tors that might be called realist. It is important to recognise, however, that none of these early writers actually ...
"A crime arising from a sudden passion is not so great as when the same ariseth from long meditation: for in the former case there is a place for extenuation in the common infirmity of human nature; but he that doth it with premeditation has used circumspection, and cast his eye on the law, on the punishment, and on the consequence thereof to human society; all which in committing the crime he hath contemned and postponed to his own appetite. But there is no suddenness of passion sufficient for a total excuse: for all the time between the first knowing of the law, and the commission of the fact, shall be taken for a time of deliberation, because he ought, by meditation of the law, to rectify the irregularity of his passions." LEVIATHAN, by Thomas Hobbes
When I read the Leviathan of Thomas Hobbes, I had the impression of a great Bluff! The State - Leviathan of Hobbes is structured so that those in power! Can be controlled with the help of others! The hypothesis is that the true Powerful have understood immediately that manage modern States would have been impossible without the contribution of the citizens! Unfortunately, history teaches that every time a King asked for money in the form of taxes, the people rebelled! What better invention then a book or two! The Leviathan and Rousseau's Social Contract ... Citizens pay taxes for themselves! To manage those services that perhaps not even the richest and most powerful of the Kings, alone could guarantee! Hobbes's Leviathan then becomes manifest of a system that is managed by the Bourgeoisie! But leaves full power to the Kings! I think of the Dictatorship of Karl Schmitt (a book) ... And I read that to control every aspect of a kingdom, the King assumed commissioners ... Thus was born the bureaucracy in Eu ...
I wish to have a 5-hour conversation about Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Immanuel Kant with the three foremost intellectuals on these figures; namely, Sean C Hughes, Andrew Lanham and Ryan Mulligan. The reason for this talk is rather simple: to discuss the most provocative questions concerning aesthetic and political philosophy. I hope that we will come to discover, through such a dialogue, that the pursuit of knowledge guides the curious intellectual to the inner light of the conceptual truth.

ANC today is a shame than from early years. ANC used to produce intellectuals now is full of stupids that are defensive that cannot debate but make noise as if is the only 'liberators' of South Africa. This even raises questions because ANC was not the only party that fought Apartheid. When leaders from PAC Robert Sobukwe and others and from ANC Mandela and others were arrested in 1960's. Black Consciousness Movement played a role, UDF played role in 1980's. We are sick and tired of lies of ANC as if is the only party that fought so called democracy. People what we have to support from ANC? ANC is full of lies, thieves, corrupt leaders, leaders who lack vision, leaders who not have sense of humanity but think for themselves. Leaders of ANC are not different from 'celebrities'. To be a leader from ANC you have to have big wallet, expensive car (s), built big house (s). The question is what about poor people who voted for you to represent them as Thomas Hobbes would say, people elect people to serve their . ...
