9781492954804: First and Second Treatise of Government

First and Second Treatises of Government By John Locke This edition contains Locke's First and Second Treatises of Government, published in 1689. In the First Treatise, Locke argues that no government can be justified by an appeal to the divine right of kings. In the Second Treatise, Locke outlines a theory of civil society in which Locke describes the state of nature. He argues that all men are created equally in the state of nature by God. He explains the hypothetical rise of property and civilisation, and he argues that the only legitimate governments are those that have the consent of the people. It is Locke's view that any government that rules without consent can, in theory, be overthrown.

About the Author:

About The Author John Locke (1632—1704) was one of the most influential philosophers and political theorists of the 17th century. In the area of politics, Locke is recognised as a proponent of limited government. His theory of natural rights argues that governments have obligations to citizens and can ultimately be overthrown by citizens under certain circumstances. He also argues powerfully in favor of religious toleration. He is at times regarded as the founder of the British Empiricism school of thought, and he contributed to modern theories of limited, liberal government. In the Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Locke provides an analysis of the human mind and its acquisition of knowledge. His empiricist theory is that we acquire ideas through our experience of the world and we examine and combine our ideas in different ways. Knowledge consists of a special kind of relationship between different ideas.
