Greg Whitlock


Thomas Hobbes was a English philosopher, born 1588 and died 1679. He was considered to be one of the founders of modem political philosophy, the other being John Locke. Best known for his book "The Leviathan," Hobbes was interested in many aspects of philosophy, even as a child, but none more than his idea of the perfect kind of governing system. His ideas of government made him unpopular with people, as he favored a monarchy, and as such he was exiled. Despite the fact he was exiled, his thoughts on the matter might be true. Monarchy, as long as not taken too far, might be the way.
