Boek cover Gezond verstand; common sense van Thomas Paine (Paperback)
gericht tot de inwoners van Amerika
Begin 1776 verscheen in Philadelphia het anonieme pamflet Common Sense. De auteur, naar later bleek de Engelsman Thomas Paine (1737-1809), riep hierin de Amerikanen op zich af te scheiden van Engeland. Binnen korte tijd werden 150.000 exemplaren van het pamflet verkocht en een halfjaar later was de Amerikaanse onafhankelijkheid een feit. Kern van Common Sense is de kritiek op het Engelse koningshuis en op de instelling van de monarchie in het algemeen. Gezond verstand is de eerste Nederlandse uitgave van dit historische pamflet en gaat vergezeld van de Engelse tekst. De vertaling van Lex...

Boek cover THUS SPOKE ZARATHUSTRA (Modern Classics Series) van Friedrich Nietzsche (Onbekend)
The Magnum Opus of the World's Most Influential Philosopher, Revolutionary Thinker and the Author of The Antichrist, The Birth of Tragedy & Beyond Good and Evil
''you must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame; how could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?'' Thus Spoke Zarathustra (subtitled as A Book for All and None) chronicles the fictitious travels and speeches of Zarathustra, the founder of Zoroastrianism. While Nietzsche injects myriad ideas into the book, a few recurring themes stand out. The overman (Übermensch), a self-mastered individual who has achieved his full power, is an almost omnipresent idea in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Man as a race is merely a bridge between animals and the overman. Nietzsche also makes a point...

Boek cover Leviathan van Thomas Hobbes (Onbekend)
Or the Matter, Forme, & Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and CIVILL
Leviathan concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory. Written during the English Civil War (1642–1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and situations identified with a state of nature and the famous motto Bellum omnium contra omnes (''the war of all against all'') could only be averted by strong central government.

Boek cover Leviathan van Thomas Hobbes (Paperback)
Or the Matter, Forme, & Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and CIVILL
Written during a moment in English history when the political and social structures as well as methods of science were in flux and open to interpretation, Leviathan played an essential role in the development of the modern world. Thomas Hobbes, an outspoken royalist, fled to France during the English Civil War. There he wrote this polemic, in which he calls for a powerful sovereign &; a ''Leviathan'' &; to act as an enforcer of peace and justice. Hobbes's articulation of this long-contemplated philosophy of political and natural science was finally published in 1651, two years after the...

Boek cover Leviathan van Thomas Hobbes (Hardcover)
Or the Matter, Forme, & Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiastical and Civill
Considered by many to be among the greatest works of political philosophy, especially in the English language, ''Leviathan'' is Hobbes' book, published in 1651, which outlines his theories on an ideal state and its creation. The structure of a society and a legitimate government, as he reasons, is perhaps the earliest example of social contract theory, which outlines the need of rule by an absolute sovereign. In Hobbes' time, the political and social structures of England were in a changing and uncertain state, which explains to some extent his ideas on the need of a strong central government...
