Western philosophy: c 1600 to c 1900

Rejecting the view that anyone has a natural right to wield authority over others, this title argues instead for a pact, or \'social contract\', that should exist between the citizens of a state and that should be the source of sovereign power. From this fundamental premise, it considers issues of liberty and law, as well as freedom and justice.
