Transcript of 5.05H Enlightenment Award Winner

Some of which include that he was one of the very first philosophers to accept and spread the idea of democratic government. He also founded the school of empiricism. He argued the age of reason that all people had the right to life, liberty, and property. He also wrote two treatises of government.
