One of the most significant works to impact our view of government and the law, TWO TREATISES OF GOVERNMENT is John Locke's masterpiece on the origin and use of political authority. Locke's beliefs that the authority of kings was not divine and that people were inherently equal are two cornerstones of a democratic society. Similarly significant are his conclusions that the government is the result of the people and must exist for the welfare of the people. TWO TREATISES reminds us that the beliefs today that we take for granted are indeed the culmination of great thinkers of the past.
