Two Treatises of Government is a major work by John Locke in political philosophy.
In the first Treatise, Locke refutes the writing of Sir Robert Filmer’s book Patriarcha and rejects the notion of the "Divine right of kings".
In the second Treatise, Locke lays out the proper role, function, and operation of good government, as well as introduces a lengthy discourse on Natural Law.
