Hobbes verses Rousseau-Compare and contrast the conceptions of the state of nature of the philosophers Thomas Hobbes and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Compare and contrast the conceptions of the state of nature of the philosophers Thomas Hobbes and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. First, give an introduction where you give a thesis statement which discusses the arguments the paper will make. Then, discuss the definitions of the state of nature given by both Hobbes and Rousseau. Also, give the origins of both theories. Then, compare and contrast the differences between the two conceptions of the state of nature. Be sure to discuss what their conceptions of the state of nature show about these philosophers’ views of human nature. Discuss how Rousseau’s view of the state of nature shows that he has a much more optimistic view of human nature than Hobbes does. Be sure to cite Thomas Hobbes’s work the Leviathan and Rousseau’s work On the Social contract in this paper. However, feel free to use other scholarly sources to supplement these works if needed. Be sure to include both footnotes and a bibliography.
