Storyboard Text

  • The Enlightenment Philosophers By: Aralyn Loftin
  • Hello my name is John Locke I am a great political philosopher of the enlightenment. I was influenced by the Glorious Revolution. I saw the state of nature as a good place and the social contract as a voluntary agreement to enhance life.
  • My name is Jean-Jacques Rousseau. I have a similar belief on the state of nature but differed on the role of government. I saw society as the corrupting influence on people. I felt it was the role of government to protect the "general will" of the people. American colonist largely rejected Rousseau
  • The name is Baron de Montesquieu. The greatest contribution came in government organization by promoting the ideas of seperation of powers , checks, and balances. I greatly admire the English system of limited government. My ideas are evident in the U.S Constitution
  • I am Voltaire. I was born in middle class family. I wrote many novels, plays, letters, and essays that bought me fame and wealth. I became known for my strong dislike of the Roman Catholic Church. I blamed church leaders for keeping knowledge from people to maintain power. I thought people should be free to choose their own beliefs. Follower believed God created the world and set it in motion. I then allowed it to run itself by natural law.
