A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan and John Locke's Two Treatises of Government. These two English philosophers are recognized for being some of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers.

As two of the most prominent philosophers of the seventeenth century, Hobbes and Locke illustrated opposing and rebellious views on the ideal form of government and sovereignty, that included religion and empiricism. Moreover, these works have paved the way for modern theories such as the formulation of social contract theory and liberalism.
