    This science of laws is known as moral philosophy. Lastly, Hobbes describes the there are two kinds of persons- natural and artificial. A natural person is one like an author, who has control over his words. All natural men are therefore natural persons. 3 Hobbes’s aspiration: science of natural justice “ if it [the optical treatise] be found true doctrine I shall deserve the reputation of having been the first to lay the grounds of two sciences; this of Optics, the most curious, and the other of Natural Justice, which I have done in my book D+ CIV+, the most profitable of all.

    Hobbes begins his work with a discussion of human nature, what he refers to as the state of nature. The state of nature is the natural state of human beings and how life would be without the regulation of a civil authority—the sovereign. According to Hobbes, the . Thomas Hobbes (/ h ɒ b z /; sometimes known as Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury; 5 April – 4 December ), was an English philosopher, considered to be one of the founders of modern political philosophy. Hobbes is best known for his book Leviathan, in which he expounds an influential formulation of social contract theory. In addition to political philosophy, Hobbes .

      Inevitably, natural law theory would be scrutinized. The major figures of the period—Rene Descartes (), Benedict de Spinoza (), John Locke () and Gottfried Leibniz ()—all tried, in one way or another, to reconcile the new secular ideas with traditional Christian morality. This chapter examines Thomas Hobbes’s ideas about the concept of the sovereign in politics. It explains that Hobbes believed that there are no meaningful limitations on who can be sovereign and on what sovereigns are entitled to do and suggests that both accounts are fairly radical for their uncompromising insistence on natural equality and political inequality.
