2. Thomas Hobbes book, Leviathan (1651):
Discuss the following written by Thomas Hobbes in his book, Leviathan (1651):
“If a covenant be made, wherein neither of the parties perform presently, but trust one another; in the condition of mere nature, which is a condition of war of every man against every man, upon
any reasonable suspicion, it is void; but if there be a common power set over them both, with right and force sufficient to compel performance, it is not void. For he that performeth first, has no
assurance the other will perform after; because the bonds of words are too weak to bridle men’s ambition, avarice, anger and other passions, without the fear of some coercive power; which in the
condition of mere nature, where all men are equal, and judges of the justness of their own fears, cannot possibly be supposed. And therefore he which performeth first, does but betray himself to
his enemy; contrary to the right, he can never abandon, of defending his life, and means of living.”
