The British political philosophers John Locke and Thomas Hobbes examined the structures of political and social order on the basis of first principles in attempting to discern the original basis of social contracts that comprise human society. This essay argues, through an examination of the political philosophies of both men, that Locke can validly be described as Hobbes in sheep's clothing given that his philosophy is fundamentally similar if less radical than that of Hobbes.
