John Locke tries to discuss the origin and essence of state through doctrines of natural jurisprudence. Starting from the natural state, he criticizes the feudal totalitarian system and advocates the inviolability of private property, state based on contract, legislative authority as the utmost power, separation of state power, and citizens right to overturn tyranny. The book has made significant impact on the capitalist political ideologies.
