Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Date THOMAS HOBBES VS JOHN LOCKE John Locke and Thomas Hobbes were great philosophers of their time and their works had a large influence on political theories. Each of them had a singular perspective on man's nature and his relationship with both the government and the society. Locke was born in 1632 in England and died in 1704. He inspired the American constitution and the Enlightenment. His political ideologies focused on the presence of a social contract between the members of a nation and the significance of tolerance. His assertions were accepted in England and the United States. Hobbes was born in Wiltshire in the year 1588. He voyaged to Europe several times to work alongside philosophers such as René Descartes and Galileo. He published a lot of his works in the 1650s working together with John Bramall. He died in the year 1679 to religiously express themselves. This is a more effective method of maintaining order than persecution of martyrs which led to strife. Tolerating different religions was the best way to achieve peace in society. The differences in political ideologies between Hobbes and Locke came about due to chaos in England. Locke came to a different conclusion when he realized that Hobbes point of view which he accepted at first did not achieve success but the freedom to exercise worship as one deems fit and respect for each individual's belief was what people wanted. He differing viewpoint obtained later on was due to his desire to bring an understanding among the people of England. Works Cited Macpherson Crawford Brough.
