About this product
- DescriptionOne of the most significant political philosophers of the twentieth century, Carl Schmitt is a deeply controversial figure who has been labeled both a Nazi sympathizer and a modern-day Thomas Hobbes. This work uses the Enlightenment philosopher's enduring symbol of the protective Leviathan to address the nature of modern statehood.
