This is known as the Glorious Revolutionalso called the Revolution of He suggests that they are instead better associated with the revolutionary conspiracies that swirled around what would come to be known as the Rye House Plot.
Locke knew his work was dangerous—he never acknowledged his authorship within his lifetime. Publication history[ edit ] The only edition of the Treatises published in America during the 18th century Two Treatises was first published, anonymously, in December following printing conventions of the time, its title page was marked Locke was unhappy with this edition, complaining to the publisher about its many errors.
For the rest of his life, he was intent on republishing the Two Treatises in a form that better reflected his meaning. Peter Laslett, one of the foremost Locke scholars, has suggested that Locke held the printers to a higher "standard of perfection" than the technology of the time would permit.
The second edition was even worse, and finally printed on cheap paper and sold to the poor. The third edition was much improved, but Locke was still not satisfied. There were no other American editions until the 20th century. The Second Treatise outlines a theory of civil society.
From this, he goes on to explain the hypothetical rise of property and civilization, in the process explaining that the only legitimate governments are those that have the consent of the people. Therefore, any government that rules without the consent of the people can, in theory, be overthrown.
Locke chose Filmer as his target, he says, because of his reputation and because he "carried this Argument [jure divino] farthest, and is supposed to have brought it to perfection" 1st Tr.
According to Filmer, the Biblical Adam in his role as father possessed unlimited power over his children and this authority passed down through the generations. Locke attacks this on several grounds. Nor is the power of a father over his children absolute, as Filmer would have it; Locke points to the joint power parents share over their children referred to in the Bible.
In the Second Treatise Locke returns to a discussion of parental power. Both of these discussions have drawn the interest of modern feminists such as Carole Pateman.
To this, Locke responds that the world was originally held in common a theme that will return in the Second Treatise. And even if this charity were not commanded by reason, Locke continues, such a strategy for gaining dominion would prove only that the foundation of government lies in consent.
Locke intimates in the First Treatise that the doctrine of divine right of kings jure divino will eventually be the downfall of all governments. In his final chapter he asks, "Who heir? Filmer must therefore say that men are duty-bound to obey their present rulers. I think he is the first Politician, who, pretending to settle Government upon its true Basis, and to establish the Thrones of lawful Princes, ever told the World, That he was properly a King, whose Manner of Government was by Supreme Power, by what Means soever he obtained it; which in plain English is to say, that Regal and Supreme Power is properly and truly his, who can by any Means seize upon it; and if this be, to be properly a King, I wonder how he came to think of, or where he will find, an Usurper.
According to Locke, no king has ever claimed that his authority rested upon his being the heir of Adam. It is FilmerLocke alleges, who is the innovator in politics, not those who assert the natural equality and freedom of man.
