Hannah Arendt on Hobbes

Hobbes Studies 9 (1):51-54 (1996)
Abstract
Arendt's interpretation of Hobbes is an external and critical approach: so there are some reductionisms. Hobbes is an example of the nullification of politics typical in Western history–the withdrawal from the contingent nature of action. The artificial genesis of State is an example of eidetic and theoretical coercion of Plato's praxis, to eliminate the risk and to reduce the politics to the modality of cause-effect. What is lost is reality. The Leviathan, born out of an artifice to attain order, includes in his internal logic, the dissolving, the insecurity, a vacillating structure, in a paradoxical heterogenesis of the ends
