Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan

Werner Horvath: "Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan". Oil on canvas, 50 x 40 cm, 2001.

Emanuel Adler, the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Professor of Israeli Studies at the University of Toronto and Professor of International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, writes about this particular picture: "...a community of people, weaved into the face of the 'father' of International Relations, just like Leviathan's face in Hobbes' book." He chose this picture as cover-illustration for his new book "Communitarian International Relations - The epistemic foundations of International Relations", Routledge, New York 2005, ISBN.0-415-33590-6 (simultaneously published in the USA and Canada).
