"Martinich offers a superb aid to study of the thought of Thomas Hobbes, the 17th-century English philosopher whose philosophy of law and the state remains controversial. The bulk of the work is a dictionary with approximately 140 entries that cover the full range of Hobbes's thought, including concepts in metaphysics, epistemology, science, politics and theology. The entries provide a helpful exposition of difficult concepts in Hobbes's writing and attempt to clarify, in a balanced, critical way, the problematic and controversial features of his philosophy."
