Chapter Summary

It also contains two figures: Leviathan, 1st edition (1651), engraved title page, and Leviathan, fair-copy manuscript, title page. The book shows how Thomas Hobbes of Malmesburys political thought conception of representation relies not on imitation or mimesis but on the creative imagination to make one thing represent another.

Keywords: political thought; Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury
