Sarah Naqvi Philosophy 110 Pisano Leviathan-Thomas Hobbes In Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan, he discusses the types of societies and governments of the world today. Hobbes is a firm believer in establishing a commonwealth, which is ruled by one sovereign ruler. Unlike Locke, who advocates democracy and societal involvement in the government, Hobbes believes that one monarch will provide a common defense for the people of that country. In addition, Hobbes discusses the “state of nature”, in which humans are violent and fearful by nature. “Again, men have no pleasure, but on the contrary a great deal of grief, in keeping company, where there is no power able to overawe them all” (466). Reading about Hobbes made me come to the conclusion that his view on life in general is extremely negative; perhaps resulting from a traumatic childhood or war. Hobbes states that there are three principal causes of quarrel amongst man: competition, diffidence, and glory. He believes that many problems of mankind revolve around war, and we should strive for peace.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
