    (April 5, 1588-1679)
    Wrote 'Leviathan,' 'On the Citizen' and 'The Elements of Law Natural and Politic'
    'Leviathan' gave a philosophical justification for an absolute monarchy.
    He held a rather unflattering opinion of human nature, saying that without government, all is permitted and that life is 'solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.'
    He worked as a tutor for William Cavendish's family for the majority of his professional life.
    He fled to France during the English civil war, believing that he would be killed or be a royalist.
    As a youth, he learned both Latin and Greek, and learned French and Italian as a young man.
    He came from a poor family.
    He is considered one of the greatest political philosophers to have ever lived.
    He published a critique of Rene Descartes' dualism, advancing a materialist alternative.
