A Book for Everyone and No One
'Enigmatic, vatic, emphatic, passionate . . . Nietzsche's works together make a unique statement in the literature of European ideas' A. C.

It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor.

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 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.

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...
