Instructions and Help about Form 2220 Summary

Oh hey, their education taught them. Sorry, I'm getting a little psyched up with some Mastodon. I'm gonna talk to you today about two very important early modern European philosophers, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. Now, this one goes out to @179 on Twitter who asked, "Hello, I was wondering if I could request a video on Thomas Hobbes versus John Locke. My test is coming up at the end of this week." Alright, so there you have it. So, Hanson, walk. You've probably already heard about the Divine Right of Kings. If you haven't, check out my video lecture on that. But, you've likely been exposed to Shot Bossuet, however you say that, it's French, and he was a proponent of divine right absolutism. Now, this isn't going to be about Bossuet, okay? This is going to be about something different. Both Hobbes and Locke reject the idea of divine right, and Hobbes is going to advocate for absolutism like also does, but it's going to be a philosophical absolutism, where John Locke is going to advocate for constitutional government, a limited government, and he is going to use both philosophical and biblical justifications for his argument for constitutionalism. So, Hobbes and Locke are both going to give us two versions of a social contract. Now, keep in mind that Rousseau wrote a book called "The Social Contract," but he's not the first philosopher to address this subject. What the social contract essentially is, it covers two things. First of all, what is the origin of government? How did people decide to have government? And second, how much authority should the state have over the individual? And Hobbes and Locke are going to sort of agree on the first part, but they're going to disagree on the second part....
