The Original Texts
By Peter Kanzler
This anthology of valuable texts is essential for anyone interested in politics, history, or philosophy. These are some of the most important books pertaining to the history of democracy & the nature of the State that have ever been written and possess immense historical value. The Constitution of Pennsylvania also has a significant heritage in the history of the United States.
This collection of the original texts by Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and The Founding Fathers of the United States of America is necessary because it combines all these books in a single edition, offering excellent value for money.
For readers who are unfamiliar with these famous authors, here is a brief explanation. John Locke was an English philosopher and physician, widely regarded as one of the most influential Enlightenment thinkers and commonly known as the Father of Liberalism. Thomas Hobbes was an English philosopher considered to be one of the founders of modern political philosophy. Jean-Jacques Rousseau was a philosopher, and his political philosophy influenced the progress of the Enlightenment and the development of contemporary political thought. The Founding Fathers of the United States of America need no introduction, as they are the forerunners of American democracy and America’s creators as we understand it today.
Peter Kanzler has assembled this collection of important historical texts to reduce the costs of educational material for students around the world. As such, this book is of exceptional value for not just students but anyone interested in history and political philosophy. I highly recommend it.
