From the Paper:

"Hugo Grotius is one of the pioneers of politics as we know it today. He championed natural rights in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. His attempt was to divorce politics and morals from religion as such in a break from Calvinist ideals. According to Grotius, God was no longer the only source of ethics. This was the beginning of democracy and free will, as these terms are known today."
