This is a 12 slide, animated power point presentation on the Enlightenment period with emphasis on the teachings of John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu and their thoughts on how governments should function as related to its citizens. Emphasis is given on how these great thinkers help shape the US Government.
The Enlightenment began in Europe around 1715. People gathered in salons in major cities to discuss philosophy and ways to improve the human experience. People developed new ideas about human existence, including basic rights and level of control they should have over their government and their futures.
Two such thinkers who would rise to prominence and help shape thinking as the United States was establishing itself as a country, John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu.
The presentation covers the following:
John Locke: The Blank Slate
John Locke: Natural rights
John Locke: Government
Baron de Montesquieu
Baron de Montesquieu: Follow the Rules
Baron de Montesquieu: Separate ....... but Equal
This is one of many power point presentations I offer in my store under the heading ….Foundations of Government.
