Der Mensch als natürliches und künstliches Wesen

Aleš Havlíček


Abstract: This article traces the heritage of the Aristotelian political investigations in Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan. It can be very important to note that the definition of man as a “social” animal will develop in Hobbes’s characterization by the opposite terms, the “natural” man and man “artifact”; two adjectives that Hobbes uses instead of “political”, the very Aristotelian adjective.

Keywords: Aristotels’s Politics, Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, “Social/Political” Animal
