Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) the social philosopher who wrote extensively on history, geometry and politics. His major work 'Leviathan' was an important influence on the tradition of utilitarian political thinking. He was tutor of Charles II, who later granted him a pension, but his reputation as an atheist gained him many opponents within the Church and government.
