Learning about liberty from a Pocket book

Dublin Core

Title

Learning about liberty from a Pocket book

Subject

Political Thought

Description

The entire book is written in the form of letter, and thus Hobbes wrote this article in first person. It is interesting to read a philosophy book in first person. Also, since it is a letter, Hobbes put the content in order of numbers like first, second, etc. It is different from other well-organized philosophy books. In the last few page of the book, there are some ads of the books this express was going to release in the near future.
