This paper is about the trial of King Charles I in 1649 and its relation to the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. It should cover the Hobbes’ contract theory, his “state of nature” , and his “Leviathan” and “Behemoth”. It should discuss whether anyone had the rightful authority, according to Hobbes’ philosophy, to try the king. Finally it should discuss what influence the trial and Hobbes’ philosophy has had.
I’ve attached my rough draft. The specific sources listed at the end can but don’t need to be used except for Leviathan and Behemoth.
