Hobbes vs. Locke Human beliefs: Locke:  all men start with a blank slate.  Knowledge comes from experience and perception.  Theory: “Tabula Rasa”: blank slate.  Human nature is kind  People are born with rights of life, liberty and property  Believes in “natural rights”  Supports democratic government, separating power so no one person is in charge  People can decipher what is wrong and right  All people are peace with some disputes  Peace is everywhere and in everyone  Authority is meaningless and gives us a reason to believe that the use of force is just and acceptable Hobbes:  Man is cruel, solitary, brutish and short society can’t exist without a higher power to keep order  Monarchy type government where there is one powerful ruler  Concede your rights to the government in return for your life  Humans can’t distinguish between what is theirs and what isn’t  Strong government needed to rule people, and their property  No order = chaos would occur  People can only live in peace with power and a common master  Force is always authorized and okay Both philosophers that changed our world. Questioned what people had trusted for thousands of years. Helped with scientific revolution
