THE THEORY OF SOCIAL CONTRACT: SHAPING TODAYS? SOCIETY

Abstract

Author(s): CJ Gletus Matthews CN JACOBS

The concept of a social contract results from the concept of ‘state of nature’ where in the absence of an organised state and therefore in the absences of justice the men was that were in constant state of war which then necessitated the need for a social order and hence the development of the theory of social contract. In analysing the perception of the 17 century philosophers the researcher looks at the development of social contract in justifying the state and its present day viewpoint.
