Теория Естественного Состояния: Гоббс, Локк, Руссо

The author offers an analysis of the logical model of “natural state” in the writings of the three mentioned authors and attempts to define its role in their theories of law. The analysis demonstrates that all three models share the same basic idea: namely, the concep-tion of an independent reasonable individual; this very idea is exactly what these different models are based upon. The concept of an individual itself does not have a substantiation.
