Hobbes Studies is an international, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published in cooperation with the International Hobbes Association and the European Hobbes Society. The journal presents research (articles, book symposia, research notes and book reviews) about philosophical, political, historical, literary, religious, and scientific aspects of Thomas Hobbes's thought. We also welcome content on other thinkers, as long as it demonstrates a strong connection to Hobbes, as well as essays on the reception of Hobbes’s work.
