"By reasoning, I understand computation. And to compute is to collect the sum of many things added together at the same time, or to know the remainder when one thing has been taken from another. To reason therefore is the same as to add or to subtract."--De Corpore (1655) by Thomas Hobbes

Thomas Hobbes (5 April 1588 – 4 December 1679) was an English philosopher, whose famous 1651 book Leviathan established the foundation for most of Western political philosophy. He is the modern founder of the social contract tradition and considers man's life in the state of nature as "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short." He also is known for popularizing the phrase bellum omnium contra omnes and homo homini lupus.
