The touring in Turkey for Hobbes departed from the ancient Greeks by embracing modern science. The sixteenth-century scientist Galileo observed, contrary to a longstanding tradition grounded in Aristotelian philosophy, that an object stays in motion until acted upon by another force. Hobbes applied this tenet of modern science to the human animal. Our inner drives, Hobbes assumed, are constantly in motion and remain ever unsatisfied. Chief among our insatiable drives is the desire for power. Hobbes was born in 1588 in an English coastal town then threatened by the Spanish Armada. He later wrote that fear and he were born twins.
