388 Words2 Pages
The Enlightenment Philosophers were brilliant people who did things that changed the world. The Enlightenment is a story about four philosophers who each had a different story and background. Their main idea was to say what needed to change and happen because of what they believed in. The Philosophers main idea is that they all believe in individual rights and they want to make things right about what they believe was right.
John Locke talks about how the state of nature and government worked during his time.
In one statement he says “All men are naturally in a state of perfect freedom to order their actions.” I don’t fully agree how this government works and some things do need to be changed and other things don’t need to be changed.
