Thomas Hobbes as an old man

Thomas Hobbes was a 17th century English Philosopher who lived through 4 regime changes and a Civil War from which he had to flee to Paris due to being a Royalist. He was an important early influence on what would come to be known as Conservatism. He thought that the best sort of government was one where an autocratic ‘sovereign’ set an unquestionable code of right and wrong. This was in order to avoid conflict resulting from disagreements.
