Leviathan, or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common-Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil, commonly called Leviathan, is the book of philosophy written by Thomas Hobbes and originally published in 1651. It is considered one of the most important works in political philosophy.

The book deals with the structure of society and how it can be maintained. In this book, Hobbes presents a model of society that is based on the complete equality and freedom of all individuals.

Although the idea may sound somewhat idealistic, Hobbes argues convincingly why this is the only way to ensure that all individuals have an equal opportunity to prosper. He also addresses the conflicts that arise when people do not have equal freedom, such as crime and poverty.
