Thomas Hobbes Political Writer and Philosopher 1651 Wrote Leviathan –Devised “The Social Contract” theory Leaders are given Power by the People But leaders must ensure lives and order – People are NASTY, BRUTISH AND GREEDY –Conclusion: Leaders need to be incredibly Powerful Hobbes saw people at their worst – The Civil War was a bloody time All Powerful Monarch Leviathan = Sea Monster
John Locke Political Writer and Philosophe Optimistic about Man and Society –In his life he experienced the Glorious Revolution where few people died. –Society did not need an Absolute Monarch, the best government is a limited Government. Wrote Essays on Government (1690) Agreed with Hobbes about the Social Contract, but –People have Natural Rights- Include Life and Liberty –Government must protect Life AND Liberty Property –Power of Government should be LIMITED –Revolution is justified if Government fails to properly Govern Wrote the English Bill of Rights (also called the Declaration of Rights)
