Carl Schmitt has been termed the Hobbes of the 20th century. He himself likes to see himself as the successor and heir to the founder of social contract theory. In Hobbes-Kristall, Schmitts idiosyncratic Hobbesian interpretation becomes clearly evident, and the microcosm of Schmittian thinking becomes visible. It encompasses five axes, of which the top one is Truth and the bottom is Obedience and Protection of Self. Throughout three sections, philosophers and political scientists discuss and analyze general interpretations, as well as Schmitts Hobbesian interpretation of Leviathan . German text.
