John Locke

  Rational thinkers developed thoughts about mankind or the environment during the enlightenment era.  They form an inter circle of intellectual ideas and called themselves as the Philosophes. These men formally documented their ideas in letters or essays format.

 -They believed that that all creation was similarity rational, so that it was possible for man to uncover laws, which regulated society, politics, the economy, and even morality. Once understood these laws would teach mankind not only what we are, but what we ought to be and do

 – These men of often critique the rational orders of the Western Christians civilizations. The absolute monarchy, the aristocratic society that dated from the Middle Ages, the established church, all came under their scrutiny. ‘Despotism, feudalism, clericalism’ became the objects of their criticism and satire.
