The First Complete English Translation of Thomas Hobbes's Treatise on Man (De Homine) from 1658

Thomas Hobbes, the seventeenth-century English philosopher, played a major role in the development of early modern philosophy. Despite more than 350 years of analysis of Hobbes's philosophy, the central treatise in his three-part "Elements of Philosophy"--his treatise on man (De Homine)--has never been available in English in its entirety. I am preparing a full scholarly edition of De Homine, accompanied by the Latin text collated from the two editions of this work in Hobbes's lifetime. My translation of De Homine will include the optical chapters that have not previously been translated into English, allowing scholars and general readers to see how Hobbes integrated his mechanistic psychology into his philosophy. Oxford University Press will publish this translation in a volume on Hobbes's optical works.
