Storyboard Text

  • THE ENLIGHTENMENT
  • Hi! I am Thomas Hobbes. I was part of an Enlightenment or also known as the "Age of Reason." I made an agreement in which people gave up rights in exchange for law; A Social Contract.
  • During the 1700's the Enlightenment took place. The Enlightenment was the time when philosophers emphasized human knowledge and logic.
  • I'M RIGHT!
  • There, that will do.
  • I am Madame Geoffrin I am one of the most prominent sponsors of salons. I lead them with a firm hand if things get heated I will say " There, that will do." When I say this the men quickly change the subject.
  • I'M RIGHT!
  • Oh, hello. I am Locke, John Locke. You might know me from the book I wrote: "Two Treaties On Government". Unlike Hobbes who believes that people are naturally aggressive, I believe that people are not born good or evil but their characters are based on life experiences.
  • Social Contract: if a government didn't rule justly or protect people's rights then they could be overthrown by anybody.
  • I am Denis Diderot. I believe in science and art. The scientific world in other words.
  • Denis Diderot wrote the Encyclopedie (the french version of the encyclopedia)
  • I am Jean-Jacques Rousseau. I believe in voting on the laws not just obeying them.
  • I support democracy and wrote the social contract.
  • I also wrote the spirit of laws. I made the three branches of government; Legislative,Exclusive, and Judicial.
  • They call me Baron de Montesquieu. I believe in the separation of powers and fair and corrupt government.
