Leviathan is a book written in 1651 by Thomas Hobbes. Hobbes argues that humans are naturally aggressive and self-interested and without a state created through a social contract, there would always be civil war. There is no "greatest good", but Hobbes argues that the best choice for society is a strong unified government. In the end of the book, Hobbes argues against ignorance and misinterpretation of scripture, which he believes the Church is guilty of.
