Locke vs Hobbes
Political Philosophies of John Locke & Thomas Hobbes
English philosopher Thomas Hobbes is now widely regarded as a truly great philosopher of the 17th century. His world renown fame can be attributed to what has now become known as his "social contract theory". With this theory in mind, Hobbes concluded that we as a people should submit to and abide by a sovereign power with absolute authority. His theories and philosophies are conveyed in his major political writings such as "The Elements of Law, Natural and Politic" published in 1650, "Philosophical Rudiments Concerning Government and Society" published in 1651 and "Leviathon" also published in 1651. These, along with Hobbes' other famous political writings have been collected in "The English Works of Thomas Hobbes" (11 volumes) and "Thomae Hobbes Opera Philosophica Quae Latina Scripsit Omnia" both edited by Molesworth.
