By analyzing the "The Prince" by Niccolo Machiavelli and "Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes, this paper examines the premise of humanistic principles in governing through the institutions of government, religion, and ethical arguments that provide a three-fold contrast and comparison of Thomas Hobbes and Niccolo Machiavelli. By understanding the complexity of rational thought that exists between these two thinkers, the paper surmises that Democratic or Republican governments are not a realistic form of government with which either philosopher would agree.
